Democrats first started calling the border crisis “fake” or “manufactured” in October of 2018. According to them, President Trump was blowing the situation out of proportion in order to try and galvanize voters to stick to the GOP in the midterms. Since the election ended, they slowly shifted away from this talking point, and with good reason.
The border crisis took a more serious turn back in October, and it has escalated every single month since. As far back as December, border facilities were so overrun that migrants have had to stay in tent cities and outdoor holding facilities because there isn’t enough room. Last month, there were 50-percent more migrants than when this started in December.
No part of this crisis is manufactured. No matter where you stand on immigration, this situation is clearly unsustainable. It’s so bad that self-proclaimed sanctuary cities are refusing to accept any more migrants. Even worse, Border Patrol stations in New Mexico have been closed all year. By any measurable statistic, this is clearly a crisis.
Most Democrats realize that, but there is one hold-out who is so deranged that he is repeating this talking point in June! Bernie Sanders is a liar, mentally incompetent, or some terrifying combination of the two. Take his word for it when you watch this video.
