Numerous Democrat politicians are moving full steam ahead as they continue with the narrative that open borders and unrestricted and unlimited migration are the only acceptable courses of action the USA should be taking. Among the most outspoken are Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-TX).
I believe it is no coincidence that the four of them are all to one degree or another all of “minority” classification (something Democrats love to do – divide and conquer). They all took their turn at the microphone on Friday morning in the halls of Congress and blamed Republicans (who else?) for the migrant crisis the nation faces as horde after horde continues to rush across the border before any barrier can be erected to slow their progress.
Four pro-migrant Democrats rendered emotional testimony Friday morning, blaming Republicans and Americans for the migration crisis that has been encouraged by the Democrat Party’s refusal to close the catch and release loopholes in border law.
The Democrats’ pro-migrant witnesses include Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-TX), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
“The cruelty is manufactured. … There is no need for us to arrest innocent people,” said Ocasio-Cortez. “We are not getting the accounts of migrants … what they are experiencing,” she said. “I believe them,” she insisted, adding, “Women were being called these names under an American flag. We cannot allow for this.”
“We should be ashamed,” said Pressley. “All they want to do is hold their babies … and make this nation their home.”
“We should be the one begging for forgiveness,” Pressley said.
Democrats did not address how open borders would damage Americans’ work, neighborhoods, and schools.
In their testimony, Republicans showed that Democrats encouraged the migration — and used the chaos to smear the GOP, border agents, and Americans.
The Republican witnesses included Reps. Debbie Lasko (R-WI), Michael Cloud (R-TX), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), and Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX).
However, the crisis is apparently declining because President Donald Trump prodded the Mexican government to block migration from Central America:
In a press event at a border detention center, Democratic legislators offer love and aid for foreign migrants, but nothing for Americans — except a not-subtle threat of government power. I'm not sure that is the best way to win Americans' votes in 2020. https://t.co/a78BYu6GHS

It never ceases to amaze me how the liberals who want open borders absolutely REFUSE to acknowledge that what is happening, particularly at our southernmost border, is anything less than a crisis.
Just the flow of illegal drugs should be sufficient cause for sounding the alarm that we need to do something more than we are currently doing to shut off that pipeline. Literally THOUSANDS of Americans are dying due to overdoses of dangerous illicit substances, including heroin laced with Fentanyl.
Above and beyond that is the fact that there is rampant human trafficking, victimizing people across the entire spectrum in pursuit of the almighty dollar being paid by perverts who have no qualms about satisfying their lusts without regard to the pain inflicted upon their victims.
The cost to the American taxpayer is also at crisis levels. Billions and billions of dollars are spent every year subsidizing the liberal freebies that go to illegals. It all needs to be stopped, and stopped NOW! I’ve said it many times, and I’ll keep saying it until I see someone taking action: cut the purse strings and then watch the voluntary mass exodus of self-deportation. We’ll save money on all fronts. The ridiculous freebies will stop, and once there is no financial incentive, the moochers will leave of their own volition, and that won’t cost us a cent either! They figured out how to get in on their own. They’ll figure out how to get out just as fast once there’s no benefit to be gained by staying!
