House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally admits the surge of illegal minor children storming the border is a “humanitarian crisis”.
However, Nancy does what most Democrats do and, instead of examining the policies of her own party, blames Former President Donald Trump for the ongoing border crisis.

There are more than 3,400 children currently being kept in cages in border warehouses or tent camps, according to a statistic from the Department of Homeland Security. Oftentimes the conditions are inhumane. Children are forced to sleep in shifts on the floor as many facilities are stretched beyond capacity since Biden took office.
Biden’s policies have caused an influx of migrant children at the southern border. As a result, the more hospitable facilities are occupied and children are forced to stay in cages well beyond the legally mandated 72 hours.
On Saturday, Biden announced he would deploy the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to hopefully clean up the crisis.
Pelosi praised Biden’s move, and insisted this was a step Trump was never willing to take.
Lest Pelosi forget: there was no crisis on the border after Trump took office. His border policies prevented the surge that Biden’s open-border stance is enabling right now.
The Biden administration has attempted to downplay the minor migrant crisis at the border, insisting a surge has never occurred. However, unable to hide from the glaring facts, the administration has come around to finally admitting that they may need some assistance in dealing with Biden’s growing issue.
Customs and Border Protection authorities said there were more than 100,000 attempted illegal crossing in February, an uptick from 78,000 who tried to cross in January. Law enforcement also noted a 50% increase in drug seizures last month.
