My fellow Americans,
Tonight, I am speaking to you
because there is a growing humanitarian and security crisis
at our southern border.
But now, as I am sure you see,
most of our losses are the result of treachery,
and no issue is decided by open conflict or battle;
while you are told that it is not because he leads a column of heavy infantry
that Philip can march wherever he chooses,
but because he has attached to himself a force of light infantry,
cavalry, archers, mercenaries, and similar troops. [...]
You must guard against him,
at the greatest possible distance, both by political measures and by preparations;
you must prevent his stirring from home,
instead of grappling with him at close quarters in a struggle to the death.
We have requested more agents, immigration judges,
and bed space to process the sharp rise in unlawful migration
fuelled by our very strong economy.
Our plan also contains an urgent request for humanitarian assistance and medical support.
Furthermore, we have asked Congress to close border security loopholes
so that illegal immigrant children can be safely and humanely returned back home.
Finally, as part of an overall approach to border security,
law enforcement professionals have requested $5.7 billion for a physical barrier.
At the request of Democrats,
it will be a steel barrier rather than a concrete wall.
This barrier is absolutely critical to border security.
It’s also what our professionals at the border want and need.
This is just common sense..[…]
Comrades, men of the Army and Navy,
commanders and political instructors,
men and women guerillas,
the whole world is looking to you as the force capable of destroying
the plundering hordes of invaders.
The enslaved peoples of Europe
who have fallen under the yoke of the invaders
look to you as their liberators.
A great liberating mission has fallen to your lot. Be worthy of this mission!
The war you are waging is a war of liberation, a just war. […]
Let us all unite firmly and fight powerfully
with one mind and with one accord,
as befitting the descendants of the great leader
and as befitting the warriors and disciples of the great general.
The sun flag of our great leaders will forever flutter in the van of our revolutionary ranks
that display only victory and honor and will always encourage and drive us toward a new victory.
Move forward toward the final victory.
