Elder Patriot’s POV| The radical Left asked for it and it appears President Trump is preparing to give it to them.
The radical Leftists in control of the Democratic Party have blocked every attempt by President Trump to join him in finding a solution to the crisis on our southern border.
Their response has been twofold. Deny that the crisis exists and create sanctuary cities that directly contravene existing U.S. immigration laws.
Trump, recognizing that the only way to convince progressive voters to abandon the imaginary world that they vote for is to actually make them live in it, seems prepared to do exactly that:
If Dems really care about the care and feeding of illegal immigrants they should be prepared to live with them. If they’re not… well, then what does that tell us?
Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had her spokeswoman respond with predictable rhetoric:
“The extent of this Administration’s cynicism and cruelty cannot be overstated. Using human beings—including little children—as pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonize immigrants is despicable, and in some cases, criminal.”
She then resorted to the Dems’ weapon of last resort, lying:
“The American people have resoundingly rejected this Administration’s toxic anti-immigrant policies, and Democrats will continue to advance immigration policies that keep us safe and honor our values.”
Speaker Pelosi chose to ignore this Rasmussen poll that was released last Friday:
Friday, April 05, 2019
Voters continue to view illegal immigration as a serious problem but don’t think Democrats want to stop it. Cutting foreign aid is one tool voters are willing to consider.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 67% of all Likely U.S. Voters think illegal immigration is a serious problem in America today.
The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
