In 2016, Donald Trump took the rare position of speaking out about the number of illegal aliens crossing into the United States and the danger they pose to the American people.
Democrats, the sewagestream media and even some RINOs reacted by calling Trump a racist, a hater, a bigot and any other racial and derogatory name they could think of.
Trump got elected because he promised to build a border wall, increase border security and do whatever necessary to stop the flow of illegal aliens, drugs and terrorists.
After Congress refused to fund his border wall, Trump did what Obama and other presidents have done, he declared a national emergency which allows him to pull funding to build the border wall.
Democrats, the sewagestream media and a growing number of RINOs say there is no crisis or national emergency at the border.
If that is true, then what do they call a 12-year record high number of illegal aliens, 76,103, crossing the border into the US?
Breitbart – 76K Migrants Entered Through Southwest Border in February — Most in 12 Years, Says CBP – U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) reports that 76,103 migrants appeared at ports of entry and illegally crossed between ports in February. This is the largest number of apprehensions and inadmissible migrants for a February reporting period in 12 years, CBP stated Tuesday.
Of the 76,103 migrants who came to the border seeking admission or illegally crossing between ports of entry, 62 percent were family units and unaccompanied minors. This presents both a border security and humanitarian crisis at our southwest border, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin K. McAleenan said in a press conference on Tuesday afternoon.
United States Border Patrol Chief of Operations Brian Hastings told reporters that during February, Border Patrol agents apprehended more than 66,000 migrants who illegally crossed the border from Mexico between ports of entry. This is up from nearly 48,000 in January — a nearly 40 percent increase. When compared to the first five months of Fiscal Year 2018, this fiscal year has seen a 97 percent increase, he stated…
I continue to insist that these Democrats, RINOs and members of the sewagestream media visit the border areas and talk to a number of the people who live there.
Oh yeah, I also insist that since they say there is no crisis or danger, that they visit without any security measures.
If there is no crisis, then why do so many Americans living along the border carry guns, sleep with bugs, have security systems, guard dogs and even send their female family members further north to safer areas?
