In a detailed report on Thursday that may be the first time liberal readers hear that there actually is an illegal immigration crisis at the southern border, the New York Times admitted that our Border Patrol resources are overrun and our system is at the snapping point thanks to the overwhelming surge of migrant families arriving at our nation’s backdoor on a daily basis.
“The smugglers have told them they will be quickly released, as long as they bring a child, and that they will be allowed to remain in the United States for years while they pursue their asylum cases,” they report. “For years, both political parties have tried — and failed — to overhaul the nation’s immigration laws, mindful that someday the government would reach a breaking point.
“That moment has arrived,” they continue. “The country is now unable to provide either the necessary humanitarian relief for desperate migrants or even basic controls on the number and nature of who is entering the United States.”
Our country is unable to provide even basic controls on how many people come to this country, to say nothing of their nature. This is the closest the New York Times has ever or will ever come to saying the simple phrase, “Trump was right.”
But of course, they spend the rest of this lengthy, opinion-driven “news” article making sure readers don’t walk away with that dreadful impression.
Instead, we learn that Trump’s tough-on-immigration stance has terrified Central American asylum-seekers, convincing them that they must come NOW because this madman could shut down the border at any moment.
Instead, we learn that Trump’s shutdown (Trump’s shutdown!) caused the immigration court to go into meltdown, extending delays for years.
Instead, we learn that Trump’s decision to withhold aid from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras will only worsen the crisis.
Instead, we learn that were it not for Trump’s insistence on a wall, Mexico would be much more willing to help us curb the river of refugees.
As hard as it may be to imagine, it seems that this administration has literally made the wrong decision on every single issue as it pertains to illegal immigration. Every one of them! You’d think Trump would get something right by accident once in a while, but nope. According to The New York Times, all you liberals shocked that there actually IS a border crisis can rest easy knowing that you don’t have to start suddenly listening to President Trump. He’s just as wrong, dumb, and evil as always.
Go back to sleep.
