About That Manufactured Crisis on Border Security

It’s September 1, 1939 and you’re a Polish cavalry officer gazing at the border with Germany. Poised on the German side are 60 divisions, 2,700 tanks, 2,300 aircraft and 9,000 field guns. You use a field phone to tell your commander: “A crisis on the German the border? You’ve gotta be kidding!”

80 years later, there’s the Chuck and Nancy Show – Who ya gonna believe: your lying eyes or our robotic rhetoric?

In the past 2 years ICE made 266,000 arrests of illegal aliens with criminal records, including 100,000 charged with assault, 30,000 with sex crimes, and 4,000 with murder. Don’t tell Chuck and Nancy. They think illegal immigrants are scapegoats for a xenophobic administration.

Every year, $500 million in illegal drugs passes into the U.S. from Mexico.  Part of that is probably consumed by Chuck and Nancy to create their euphoric state of mind.

Trending: Time for Trump to Follow the Constitution and Ignore The Judges

Every week brings news of another citizen murdered by an illegal immigrant: A police officer and an Air Force veteran in California, a 16-year-old girl butchered by MS-13 gang members in Maryland, an Iowa student raped in murdered, and on, and on, and on.

Another caravan is forming up in Central America, which will start with an estimated 15,000. That’s more than double the number in the October caravan.

Assaults on Border Patrol agents by “migrants” hurling rocks, bottles and other projectiles grew dramatically in the past 4 months.  In many cases, tear gas was needed to stop the attacks.

The union representing Border Patrol Agents overwhelmingly supports a wall.

Obama’s last Border Patrol Chief (Mark Morgan), tells Trump to stay the course.

In 2014, Barack Obama told the nation that there was “a growing  humanitarian and security crisis” on the border. Apparently, things have improved substantially since then.

A crisis on border security? Phony. Made-up. Mythological. Totally manufactured.

Trump is visiting the border today to once again make the case for a wall. Guess who won’t be with him? They’ll be making speeches in Congress and doing interviews on CNN – trying to convince us that reality isn’t real. Hmmm.
