Top Democrats say that the US-Mexico border never has been better…and yet, “DonaldTrump” is to blame for everything going wrong there.

“We’re on a good path at the border, under the leadership of President Biden,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D – California). “We were in a very bad situation under the Trump Administration.”

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas reassured Americans in March: “The border is closed.”

Wow! Mission accomplished!

But wait. Even though Myorkas claims that the border is welded shut, something is amiss.

“We are rebuilding the orderly systems that the Trump administration tore down,” Myorkas said.

Regarding the border, Vice President Kamala Harris said: “I mean, again, we were presented, when we came in, with some serious challenges.” According to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, the “last administration left us with a dismantled and unworkable system.”

To fault Donald J. Trump for Biden’s border chaos is like Mayor Bill de Blasio (D – New York) saying that Gotham’s 40 percent spike in shootings in 2020 and 13 percent hike in homicides, for first quarter 2021 versus 1Q 2020, are the handiwork of that world-famous criminal coddler, Republican former mayor Rudy Giuliani.

The Democrat “blame Trump” narrative on the border is equally absurd. In fact, Trump had the border under control last year. In just weeks, Biden made a dog’s brunch of this inheritance and has devolved the border into a humanitarian, public health, and national security catastrophe.

The data confirm this fact.

First, remember that criminals on the border include each and every illegal alien who invades America without permission. Whether they are MS-13 killers or cute kids seeking their abuelas in San Antonio and Santa Monica, illegal aliens undermine U.S. sovereignty and lampoon millions of legal immigrants who arrive with passports and U.S. visas.

Many illegals also drive up costs for America’s increasingly exhausted taxpayers. Biden is blowing $86.9 million in federal funds to lodge illegals in 1,239 hotel beds for six months. That equals $385 per night. (What a country: Break in and then stay at the Hampton Inns and Comfort Suites — for free! Can I get the same deal in Cancun?)

Not to be outdone, New York State is poised to give $15,600 to illegal aliens who lost work in 2020. Total cost: $2.1 billion. How long before taxpayers break out the pitchforks and torches?

Foreigners who breach the border without passports violate 8 U.S. Code § 1325(a) — Improper entry by alien. Border Patrol encounters with such illegals were flat to falling under Trump. They went from 36,585 in January 2020 to 36,687 that February — up 0.3 percent. In March 2020, that number was 34,460 — down 6 percent.

These stable-to-decreasing numbers of encounters under Trump annihilate Biden’s lie that increases in apprehensions are as predictable as Washington, D.C.’s cherry blossoms. “It happens every year,” Biden told journalists on March 25.

Even if one buys Biden’s garbage, the changing seasons cannot explain today’s staggering leap in Border Patrol confrontations with illegals. These rose from 78,444 in January 2021 to 106,028 last February — up 29 percent. Last month, that figure was 172,331 — up 71 percent in March alone.

Comparing Border Patrol run-ins with illegals in 2020 versus 2021 starkly confirms Trump as savior of the southern border and indicts Biden as its sworn enemy.

Illegal-alien encounters in January 2020 stood at 36,585. January 2021’s statistic was 78,444 — up 114 percent.

The datum for February 2020 was 36,687. Last February’s number was 101,028 — up 175 percent.

The analogous figures for March 2020 were 34,460 and 172,331 for March 2021 — up 400 percent.

Border – Encounters with illegal aliens

In the graph just above, Trump’s taming of the once-intractable southern frontier is represented by the orange curve. This is what 450 miles of border wall, the Stay-in-Mexico policy, and anti-caravan pacts with El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras bought America. There is a word for this: Leadership.

Meanwhile, Biden’s mind-blowing loss of control over the US-Mexico border is represented by the blue line, which curves up like the business end of a hockey stick. To paraphrase Dr. Freud, sometimes a hockey stick is just a hockey stick.

There are two explanations for the utter bedlam that Biden has unleashed on the border: Either he is an Olympic-class incompetent who hasn’t the foggiest idea of what he is doing. Or, conversely, Biden knows precisely what he is doing: Welcoming the Future Democrats of America to march across the frontier and await their turn to vote for the party that pried the front door off the hinges and yelled, “Soup’s on!”

To summarize evil Democrats, who speak from all sides of their mouths on this issue: “We’re on a good path at the border, and it’s all Trump’s fault.

Of course biden & the liberal idiots would allow as many future votes in as they can get away with.
First step get as many as possible in the U.S
Second, get them nicely set up on social handouts, to ensure they’ll vote demoncrat.
Third get them driver’s licences,or whatever is necessary to get them registered to vote.
Fourth, buss them to the polls with pre filled ballots!
I wouldn’t trust even a dead demonrat, because apparently they vote too!

I can’t even imagine how many get in without getting caught.
Besides the ones who are simply trying to have a better life, let’s not forget the yemenis who were caught. How many other terrorists have made it through without getting caught?
We’ll find out when there’s more assaults like the Boston marathon,& San Bernardino.
These are the demonrats friends,they help them push their anti gun B.S. that anyone with a working brain knows doesn’t stop a damn thing. The demonrats are only scared of what will come, from their blatant disregard to the constitution,they swore to uphold.
Their actions are absolute treason as they trample the constitution in EVERYTHING they do.

The Democrats are ALWAYS lying. It should only be headline news if a Democrat tells the truth.

And why are Democrats lying all the time, you ask? Because their followers are too stupid to recognize the lies. Liberals are incapable of critical thinking. You can tell them anything and if it fits their belief system they will buy it. That is why it is almost impossible to get a liberal to see and accept the truth.

They want America over run by millions of illegal aliens to replace and conquer us as legal American voters by using them as illegal alien voters in future!! The best part is that we, the American taxpayers are “using our own tax money to pay for our own destruction as American voters”!!! Shouldn’t we be “proud of ourselves as American taxpayers”??????????????????????????????????????????

Biden is an idiotic moron who doesn’t know what he is doing. He professes to be American but all he is doing is killing America. Let him go to China and see what happens there. Harris is just as bad, she gets a job and doesn’t even go to see how bad the border is. They are both liars, fraudulent to be in office and complete fools thinking people like them. Their popularity has dropped big time since they lied to get in office and have done everything against what they said they would do.

We’ve been an independent nation for 245 years and we still don’t have any laws that we enforce. We are a paper tiger and it’s more obvious every day. We complain about this stuff and choose to do nothing hoping someone else will do it. Remember this when it bites you in the butt…we have no one to blame but ourselves.

They spent 8 years saying Bush did it, so why not repeat that now it worked then?
Crime isn’t a crime anymore unless it was voting for Trump. Then lets face you should get life in prison, deported, or the death penalty.
They have no other coices if they want to hold on to what they have, and they know it.

I’m quite certain that there’s no one in America that isn’t aware of the excellent job Pres Trump did as Pres. in his four years! Americans would do well to have him back!
