Well, it’s pretty obvious by now, that Democrats want to decriminalize illegal border crossings, as they demonize both Border Patrol Agents and ICE every chance they get. They seem completely oblivious on the negative consequences of “open borders,” which is the main reason why so many Republicans/Conservatives are aghast by their flippant remarks.

Lately, AOC has taken it upon herself, to be the spokesperson for illegals, not only those currently residing in this country, but also those who are being detained at U.S. Border Camps. Like the New York Post stated in a recent article, AOC is the main star in “border theater,” a contrived plot by Democrats, to blame the border crisis on the Trump administration, while ignoring the fact that illegal immigrants are coming to our border in record numbers.


AOC has a great gift for theater, as in her claim that detained women are forced to drink from toilets — which apparently refers to standard plumbing units for these facilities, which hold both a sink and toilet.



This was almost as inspired as her stunt last fall, getting photographed with tears while supposedly viewing kids held in cages — when a wider shot revealed that she was actually looking at an empty lot.

Back in July 2018, President Obama’s former Department of Homeland Security chief, Jeh Johnson, stated that abolishing ICE would be a bad idea.


“Abolish ICE” makes for a good rallying cry on the left. Demanding the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency also provides President Trump with a useful weapon for bludgeoning Democrats politically.



...the outright abolition of ICE would compromise public safety. ICE is a law-enforcement agency. It consists of essentially two components: enforcement and removal operations, or ERO, and homeland security investigations, or HSI, which is dedicated to the investigation of cross-border crimes such as smuggling dangerous drugs and contraband, the theft of intellectual property, child pornography and human trafficking.

Today, Jeh Johnson warns that the concept of open borders is “unworkable, unwise and does not have the support of a majority of American people or the Congress.” He also stated that, "Chain link barriers, partitions, fences, cages -- whatever you want to call them -- were not invented on January 2017." Why did he state this? Because, detention centers for illegal migrants were built while Johnson was DHS chief for the Obama Administration.


Homan (Barack Obama’s former ICE chief, Thomas Homan), at the conference hosted by the Center for Immigration Studies, said, “I would answer the question,‘The kids are being housed in the same facility built under the Obama administration.’ If you want to call them cages, call them cages. But if the left wants to call them cages and the Democrats want to call them cages then they have to accept the fact that they were built and funded in FY 2015.”

Just another example of how the Democrats want to spin the truth, in order to make Trump and his administration look bad.


An Obama-era Department of Homeland Security chief is warning Democratic presidential candidates to cool their push to decriminalize illegal border crossings, saying such a move would be tantamount to “open borders” policy and lead to hundreds of thousands more people flooding into the U.S. every month.



Johnson, meanwhile, has also pushed back on the controversy surrounding the Trump administration's use of detention centers for migrants. On Friday, he said that chain link fences or "cages" weren't ideal, but were one of the ways authorities are forced to cope with the surge of migrants crossing the border, and that the alternative was putting them "on the streets."

Today, Obama DHS chief blasts Dems’ ‘open borders’ push, warns migration would explode:


Back in 2014, Jeh Johnson warned immigrants (as acting DHS chief) that, "you will be detained and you will be deported" if you try to illegally cross the U.S. - Mexican border! Isn't funny how the Democrats didn't protest this back in the day?

It's also a good example of the serious divide within the Democrat party. Despite the appearance of a united front, there are major differences in policy and platform issues that are not being addressed by media or anyone. Illegal immigration is just one such issue. Women's issues -- including abortion, but also transgender "rights" trampling women's rights -- is another big issue. As well as the violent tactics of Antifa and other protesters. We can add government spying on citizens too, with many Democrats quite concerned about an out-of-control government spying machine.

Democrats and the media are indeed spinning the truth to fit their agenda. We know that. But we have to also recognize that Alinsky Rules are in play here too: "Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have." We have to shine some bright sunlight on the divisions within the Democrat party, thus weakening the spinmeisters and strengthening the dissenters.

Agreed. The narrative being pushed on MSM and the silencing of Conservative critics on social media, is supported by the Democratic Party. They want to eliminate the other side's viewpoints, including the actual facts, from being discussed, in order to control and manipulate their naive followers, who drink up the koolaid as soon as it's served.

Obama did what he had to do to get elected. I swear, he sounded like Trump with his stance on illegal immigration. Once in however he did the exact opposite. His "high" deportation numbers were a slight of hand. He changed the reporting method, not the number of deportations. Then he tried to grant millions instant citizenship which failed and ignored current laws on the books on illegal immigration.

It's the biggest flaw in our system. Grand promises then once elected the people get hoodwinked. I do believe though this is the end of the line. Majority do not want open borders and want this problem fixed. Democrats are going to die on this hill. Already have but they keep charging up it.

On the plus side (relatively speaking), there are more and more speaking out about various atrocities... they can't keep everyone silent!!!

Former Antifa member says attacks on conservatives needs to stop

HE LIED! Portland Police Release Statement – Claim Mayor Wheeler Gave Police Stand Down Order During Violent Protests

An ti-trans activists “from the Left” joined right-wing Heritage Foundation to rail against trans people

The wheels of justice turn slowly -- inside and outside the courtroom! But there is hope. It was the Republicans/conservatives who recognized the shenanigans of the RINOs who brought about the possibility of a President Trump... given time, it will be the Democrats/liberals who recognize the shenanigans of the DINOs that will bring about new opportunities and new candidates for the left.

You can make jokes about anything, just not illegals... That's crossing the border.

They have no interest in intellectual consistency. Making sense is not a factor to them.

Their only goal is to cause disruption. They want to destroy the integrity of our elections through illegal mass immigration and fraud.

If they cite a different motivation for what they do, they're lying.

I say let them keep running their mouths. The dems wish to have open borders and to take away the 2nd will guarantee a Trump victory in 2020. Trump doesn’t have to do a damn thing but continue to let them keep shooting themselves in the foot. Americans are not on board with their nonsense, even though they want to believe otherwise.
