Before, during and after President Donald Trump’s recent address to the nation, Democrats and the mainstream media were denying the existence of a real border crisis. As Trump spoke, they were busy doing their usual fact checks in hopes of proving him to be a liar.
Many of those fact checks disputed the claims of the President, such as these which were only a few of the many samples:
1- Politico – President Donald Trump made several false or misleading statements about illegal immigration and border security in a nationally televised speech Tuesday evening…
The notion that the number of illegal border crossings represent a “crisis” is not true.
2- NBC News – America’s immigration system is broken — that’s something experts, advocates, and politicians across the aisle can agree on — but there’s little evidence the southern border is experiencing a new state of emergency.
3- NPR – Fact check: Illegal border crossings in the most recent fiscal year (ending in September 2018) were actually lower than in either 2016 or 2014 and much lower than at their peak around 2000.
Additionally, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) and House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) have been among the most vocal critics of President Donald Trump’s claim of a humanitarian and security crisis at the US southern border with Mexico.
They have repeatedly stated that there is NO crisis and that Trump is just creating the idea of a crisis to build a border wall because he hates those from other countries who are trying to flee bad situations and come to America where they have more opportunity for a safer and better life.
As for hating those outside the US, a friend recently stated that he locks his doors at home not because he hates those outside, but because he because he loves those inside. This is what President Trump is trying to do, protect those inside the US and place them first, above those from other countries.
Besides, the United States can’t even afford to take care of Americans properly, so how are we supposed to take care of hundreds of thousands of people from other countries?
But for those blind and America hating Democrats, I have a demand I would like to make of them.
If there is no crisis at the border, then I DEMAND that they, individually, travel to many of the places along the border but travel alone, without their body guards and media entourage. Let them find out for themselves just how dangerous it is in America near the Mexico border.
If they are not willing to visit the border without bodyguards and protection, then they need to shut up.
Secondly, if Democrats are so concerned about the thousands of federal workers not getting paid, all they have to do is the right thing and fund the border wall to protect America.
The bottom line is:
DEMOCRATS NEED TO PUT UP OR SHUT UP!!!
