The problems at the US southern border are like the elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about and even reject its existence.
This is a typical tactic used by many people who claim there is no problem by ignoring that existence of the problem or elephant in the room.
This is what Democrats and much of the sewagestream media do with the issue of tens of thousands of illegal aliens and tons of illegal drugs continue to cross the border into the United States.
A month ago, the New York Times declared that there was no emergency at the border.
Today, the New York Times admitted that the border is at a breaking point.
Breitbart – Nolte: NYT Says Border at ‘Breaking Point’ 1 Month After ‘Fact Check’ Claimed No Emergency – One month after claiming there is “no emergency” at the border, the far-left New York Times now concedes the border is at a “breaking point.”
In real time, as President Trump gave his State of the Union speech last month, the Times branded the president a liar over his claim that there is an “urgent national crisis” at our border.
“This is false,” the Times told its readers, using a non sequitur about individuals attempting to cross the border, while admitting — at the bottom of the fact check — that a “record number of families have tried to cross the border in recent months.” …
In recent days, a couple of government officials, including the Carla Provost, Chief of the US Border Patrol, testified before Congress.
They all confirmed that there was a crisis at the border that needed to be addressed as soon as possible.
Like the elephant in the room, most Democrats and even some RINOs ignored the truth and pretended it didn’t exist.
The testimonies did nothing to curb efforts of Democrats and at least 10 Republican Senators to work to together to block President Trump’s national emergency declaration, used to fund the building of the border wall.
