On Sunday morning, Nancy Pelosi pointed her wrinkled fingers at former President Donald Trump, claiming he’s to blame for the border crisis.
Pelosi said; “This is a humanitarian challenge to all of us. What the administration has inherited is a broken system at the border and they are working to correct that.” She also said that 600-700 kids are coming across the border but let’s be serious, that number needs to be magnified by at least a million or so.
So let me get this straight. Pelosi and Democrats in Washington, DC, want to take credit for the vaccine but not accept responsibility for failure at the border. Typical Democrat.
The legal immigration system is broken, and politicians like Pelosi have been too unwilling to risk their careers by fixing it. Trump tried to fix it but had to use executive action because Dems were unwilling to work with him.
Joe Biden made it worse by simply reversing Trump’s working policies through executive action, which is not something that he was shy about, stating he would do before he was elected. His laissez-faire approach, which included reversing the Trump policy without addressing the system itself, is having the predictable outcome of creating an immigration crisis. This crisis was preventable by this generation and previous generations of elected leaders. I am uncertain, but I have seen many times that a crisis has to occur before anyone addresses the problem.
If Pelosi hadn’t withheld all funding for the border wall during the Trump administration, the border crisis would not exist today. She knows this, and that is why she is trying to transfer the blame to Trump.
But then again, who else would Pelosi blame? She cannot blame Barack Obama for the problem along the border because Trump was president after him. She cannot blame Biden because that would force her to admit that the democrats have failed all these years. But with the problem along the southern border, while the “remain Mexico” order was still in effect, there were very few illegals crossing.
Because of this, Biden and the Democrats have culpability for what has happened to these children on the way to the border. It also means he and the democrats in congress are culpable for the increase in the amount of money that the US will have to fork out, whether it is federal money or state money, including for the local housing and feeding and medical and the money for transporting these ILLEGALS to their final destination in the US.
After the initial migrant surges during the early part of Trump’s term, you heard nothing about the crisis at the border — because he had put the policies and processes in place to fix it. We all know if there had been something they could say, they would have. Now that EO Joe has done away with all of Trump’s policies, illegals, up to 10% COVID-positive, surge across our southern border.
The requirement for skills, educations, personal responsibility, working use of English, and financial stability is not broken! Most of the ones you are letting in illegally can’t even speak and write their own language.
“This is a humanitarian challenge to all of us,” she said. “What the administration has inherited is a broken system at the border, and they are working to correct that,” Democrats say whatever they want, whenever they want, and expect people to believe it regardless of how outrageously delusional it is. It’s really quite fascinating.
Blaming others and hiding behind their failures has been the low standard of the Dems. Trump spent so much money brilliantly to secure the borders, then here comes Mr. Biden enjoying signing a stack of executive orders to undo all the good things and take us back in history. We really need some young, smart, energetic, skilled people in the White House and the senate and the house. Leaving it to Biden and Pelosi and Schumer will only bring disasters to this country with their failing agendas, and the border mess is only one proof of it.
No Nancy, you and your party own this disaster. Trump had the border under control. Biden has just been letting people cross without any guidance from the government. Just looking the other way. You and your party need to be held accountable for your actions. Look in the mirror. The Democrats are responsible for the crisis.
Once again, I will admit the system is broken, has been for decades because Congress, not Trump, has taken any action to fix the problems. Pretty amazing that any member of Congress can look themselves in a mirror and blame someone else for their problem.
Pelosi is just a sorry excuse for a lawmaker! She’s so worried about fingers being pointed at her, and her pointing her finger at Trump. Just fix the issue at the border! If Biden wouldn’t have run his hole during the debates about easing the border, and finished the wall, we wouldn’t have this problem right now. But, yeah, it’s Trump’s fault.
