Last week, President Donald Trump addressed the nation where he spelled out his reasons for demanding to have funding with which to build a border wall. He laid out a number of reasons, all of which were valid.
To no surprise, Democrats and the mainstream media were calling Trump a liar, hours before he ever spoke. As he did speak, they ran to their fact checkers in hopes of proving that Trump was indeed a liar. They also kept denying that there was any border crisis and that Trump was just making it up to get his way for building a border wall.
As Trump spoke, they were busy doing their usual fact checks in hopes of proving him to be a liar.
Many of those fact checks disputed the claims of the President, such as these which were only a few of the many samples:
1- Politico – President Donald Trump made several false or misleading statements about illegal immigration and border security in a nationally televised speech Tuesday evening…
The notion that the number of illegal border crossings represent a “crisis” is not true.
2- NBC News – America’s immigration system is broken — that’s something experts, advocates, and politicians across the aisle can agree on — but there’s little evidence the southern border is experiencing a new state of emergency.
3- NPR – Fact check: Illegal border crossings in the most recent fiscal year (ending in September 2018) were actually lower than in either 2016 or 2014 and much lower than at their peak around 2000.
Additionally, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) and House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) have been among the most vocal critics of President Donald Trump’s claim of a humanitarian and security crisis at the US southern border with Mexico.
They have repeatedly stated that there is NO crisis and that Trump is just creating the idea of a crisis to build a border wall because he hates those from other countries who are trying to flee bad situations and come to America where they have more opportunity for a safer and better life.
As for hating those outside the US, a friend recently stated that he locks his doors at home not because he hates those outside, but because he loves those inside. This is what President Trump is trying to do, protect those inside the US and place them first, above those from other countries.
Besides, the United States can’t even afford to take care of Americans properly, so how are we supposed to take care of hundreds of thousands of people from other countries? US taxpayers are already seeing over $100 billion a year of their tax money being used to take care of the illegal aliens already here.
Since the top Democratic leaders deny there is a border crisis, I DEMAND that they travel to the US-Mexico border and spend several days visiting with the ranchers and others that live along the border. When they do, they need to go WITHOUT any of their body guards. After all, if there is NO CRISIS, then they should have nothing worry about. It’s time for Democrats to put up or shut up and stop spewing their lies and distortions that only prove that they love foreigners more than they love American citizens.
