The crisis at the southern border is getting worse and Democrats in congress are doing nothing to help President Trump.
Donald J. Trump For President, Inc. released a video on Friday that highlights just how bad the situation on the border really is.
The video was strategically released right before the President boarded Air Force One to visit parts of the newly constructed border wall along the southern border.
The campaign noted, “The video features 2020 Democrats flippantly dismissing the situation, as well as prominent Obama era experts and media figures admitting that there is indeed a crisis. The video closes with a call for Democrats in Congress to work with President Trump to address the problem.”
Democrats refuse to admit there is a crisis along our southern border and are even actively campaigning on an open borders platform,” Kayleigh McEnany, National Press Secretary for the Trump campaign said. “President Trump has been an unmistakable leader on the issue of illegal immigration since before he took office and will not rest until our border is secured.”
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
On Thursday, Trump backed down from his threat to shut down the border. Instead, he gave Mexico a “one-year warning” to make serious headway in stemming the flow of illegals to the border (which, by the way, means the issue would come up in April 2020 — the homestretch of the presidential election). Trump warned that if Mexico does not slow the flow of illegal aliens and drugs into the U.S., he will impose tariffs of 25% on automobiles and, if that doesn’t work, he might shut down the border altogether.
We’re going to give them a one-year warning, and if the drugs don’t stop or largely stop, we’re going to put tariffs on Mexico and products, particularly cars,” Trump stated. “And if that doesn’t stop the drugs, we close the border.”
Anyone claiming that the situation on the border is not a National Emergency, clearly hasn’t been paying attention to recent statistics. Politico noted that “Border officials encountered an estimated 100,000 migrants in March, with families making up the bulk of that, according to preliminary figures. The tally suggests border traffic could return to the higher levels of the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s.”
That’s enough illegal immigrants in one month to overflow an entire NFL football stadium.
On Friday, Trump took to Twitter to slam the Washington Post for their one-sided reporting of the situation along the border.
“The Crazed and Dishonest Washington Post again purposely got it wrong. Mexico, for the first time in decades, is meaningfully apprehending illegals at THEIR Southern Border, before the long march up to the U.S. This is great and the way it should be. The big flow will stop.
However, if for any reason Mexico stops apprehending and bringing the illegals back to where they came from, the U.S. will be forced to Tariff at 25% all cars made in Mexico and shipped over the Border to us. If that doesn’t work, which it will, I will close the Border. This will supersede USMCA.
Likewise I am looking at an economic penalty for the 500 Billion Dollars in illegal DRUGS that are shipped and smuggled through Mexico and across our Southern Border. Over 100,00 Americans die each year, sooo many families destroyed!”
Trump is fighting hard to secure our borders but the Left has made it clear that they rather obstruct the President than keep the American people safe.
A very sad situation.
