Yes, Hypocrite Dems, There is a Crisis At The Border
DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen testified before Congress on Wednesday that yes, she says there is a definite crisis at the border. But Democrats in their infinite hypocrisy are turning a blind eye, and some RINOs are also threatening to pass a resolution against Trump’s emergency declaration. If they do, Trump will have to issue his first veto.
The system is about to be overwhelmed with people, drugs, human misery. CBP agents have confiscated Fentanyl, Marijuana, Cocaine, Heroin, etc. Many of the so-called “family units” are fake parents, according to Brandon Judd, head of the National Border Patrol council. Adding to that is the fact that many more people are coming from places other than Mexico and Central America.
Consider that in the first 5 months of fiscal year 2014 – the year Democrats claimed a humanitarian border crisis – the United States Border Patrol made approximately 164,492 illegal border crossing arrests.
In the first 5 months of this fiscal year (October through February) that number has increased by more than 106,000. By the end of February, we had approximately 271,147 arrests.
No matter how you slice it, that is a huge increase. Not only have the sheer numbers of illegal border crossers dramatically increased, but we’re now dealing with many more issues than we did in 2014.
As in 2014, we’re dealing with an untenable number of unaccompanied minors. But unlike in 2014, we’re also dealing with adults bringing children into the United States and falsely claiming parental guardianship – the first indicator of sex or servitude trafficking.Brandon Judd, veteran Border Patrol agent and president of the National Border Patrol Council
We’re dealing with the smuggling of dangerous narcotics like opioids and fentanyl, which has caused an epidemic and American deaths at unprecedented rates.
We’re dealing with a greater number of people from countries other than Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.
As the DHS Secretary emphasized the dangers of the journey, she also spoke of not only a humanitarian crisis, but one of the border patrol being overwhelmed…and it will only get worse as the weather warms up.
“In February, we saw a 30 percent jump over the previous month, with agents apprehending or encountering nearly 75,000 aliens. This is an 80 percent increase over the same time last year. And I can report today that CBP is forecasting the problem will get even worse this spring as the weather warms up…
We face a crisis — a real, serious, and sustained crisis at our borders. We have tens of thousands of illegal aliens arriving at our doorstep every month. We have drugs, criminals, and violence spilling into our country every week. And we have smugglers and traffickers profiting from human misery every single day by exploiting people who are seeking a better life, deceiving them about our laws, and fueling everything from sexual slavery to child exploitation to the smuggling of illicit goods.” Kirstjen NielsenFox News
She stated that the crisis was “spiraling out of control” after nearly 76,000 illegals came across the border in February alone, which threatens to overwhelm border law enforcement. That means the Border Patrol is on track for 1 million illegals in 2019.
We’ve heard liberal generals and politicians say that there is ‘no crisis’ at the border (this coming from people who have never spent one day with a Border Patrol agent). Democrats seem to be “brushing off” the testimony of anyone who says there is a crisis. They want their power, and they could care less about Americans or our security.
“If this is not a crisis, what the hell would be? We’re being flooded. The numbers are just through the roof.” Senator Lindsey Graham on Fox Insider
