In recent months, we’ve seen the crisis at the border explode out of control. Thanks to Congress’ refusal to act, the problems at the border only get worse. Much worse. Now Homeland’s top official has spoken about what’s going down South.
Everyone needs to know what she’s saying.
Since last fall, our open border has become a virtual warzone. Massive caravans of migrants have left Central America, intent on reaching the United States. These groups have been so huge, they’ve overrun Mexican authorities. It seems like Mexico was unable—or unwilling—to stop these groups from passing through their country.
In fact, in some cases, they were given safe passage and bus tickets, so long as they headed for our border.
Now our border is at a crisis. Many experts say it is well beyond the breaking point. Thousands are demanded asylum, overwhelming our ports of entry. Many others are intent on just pushing passed border security to get inside the country.
According to Customs and Border Protection, more than 76,000 migrants were detained in February, marking the highest number of apprehensions in 12 years. That figure includes more than 7,000 unaccompanied children. More than 36,000 migrant families have arrived in the El Paso region in fiscal 2019, compared with about 2,000 at the same time last year, according to CBP data. [Source: Fox News]
President Trump warned us this would happen. He’s been working for three years to secure our border, with zero support from Congress. In fact, Democrats shut down the government early this year, just to keep our border weak and vulnerable.
It forced the president to declare a national emergency, just to secure some money to protect our border. And even that was challenged by Congress. I mean, seriously, do these clowns even care about our country? Thousands of illegals are trying to force their way in. They don’t care about our laws or society. That’s not even mentioning the many criminals wanting in. Yet Congress does NOTHING.
Trump vetoed Congress’ attempts to stop the national emergency. But with each passing day, the crisis grows worse. Now Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is speaking about the border. In no uncertain terms, she called it what it really was.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Tuesday that the Trump administration is treating the immigration crisis as a “Cat 5 hurricane disaster.”
“We are bringing all of the agencies together; we’re asking everybody to chip in,” Nielsen said…
“I’m in constant contact with the acting secretary of defense. I talked to some of the combatant commanders today. We are in fact pushing more and more military resources to the border,” Nielsen said…
“We have to stop the drugs. We have to stop the smuggling and trafficking gangs. He’s very serious about it, so yes, I think everything is on the table,” Nielsen said. [Source: Fox News]
It’s unthinkable that anyone within our government would neglect this crisis. But Democrats (and some Republicans) do not care that thousands—hundreds of thousands—of illegal aliens are trying to storm our border.
The damage to our economy, national security, and communities would be near incalculable. You know the massive toll unchecked illegal immigration has caused. Yet Democrats sit idly by as thousands more try to push their way in.
Without the border wall, the president’s administration must work around the clock, pulling any resources they have, to prevent a disaster.
We said at the very beginning that these caravans won’t stop. Much like the migrant crisis of Europe, these groups will do whatever they can to enter the U.S., our laws be damned.
Democrats do nothing because they want this to happen. They care more about outsiders than they do American citizens.
Only when the wall is up will American families sleep easy. Only when our border is totally secure will this crisis end. But Congress—as it is today—will never let that happen.
What can we do? We can vote every clown out of office in 2020. Support only those who believe in a safe America.
But can we even wait that long?
