The Border Crisis is Real – Democrats Need to Stop Playing Politics with People's Lives

“Our immigration system is in desperate need of reform,” Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) writes in Fox News. “If Democrats truly wanted to help vulnerable populations, they would not have waited until this week – when the crisis is at a breaking point – to act.”

Of course, the media covers Democrats’ selective outrage more than Republicans’ actual solutions. The Securing America's Future Act, for example, “would have provided a solution for DACA recipients and $25 billion for border security, while also addressing our outdated asylum laws by closing the legal loopholes which have unfortunately functioned as a magnet to drug cartels and human traffickers.”

Every single Democrat voted down the measure.

Recently, House Republicans put forward the Border Crisis Supplemental Appropriations Act, which includes $3.3 billion in humanitarian aid for children and families at the border. A similar, bipartisan bill in the Senate passed its Appropriations Committee by a 30-1 vote. House Democrats ignored both, pursuing their own partisan bill that appeases the far-left base while impeding real, bipartisan legislation.

At this week’s G20 Summit in Osaka, Japan, “President Donald Trump will meet with China’s President Xi and other world leaders to continue fighting for U.S. interests abroad,” Corey Lewandowski writes in The Hill. Globalists attack President Trump’s trade agenda while ignoring this key fact: “We have a system dominated by nations which engage in all kinds of ways to cheat international trade laws for their own benefit,” Lewandowski says. “China stands at the forefront of this misbehavior.”
“Congress is debating emergency humanitarian aid to care for migrants on the U.S.-Mexico border. The need is obvious. With virtually no barrier to stop them, thousands of migrants are crossing illegally into the United States every day,” Byron York writes in the Washington Examiner. “This moment might be a time for introspection for those who have consistently downplayed the urgency of the situation on the border.”
“The Mexican government claims to be deporting more Central Americans found in the country illegally and says the move is a direct result of enhanced enforcement operations mandated in a deal with the Trump administration,” Anna Giaritelli reports for the Washington Examiner. “Data released Tuesday evening by Mexico's Institute of National Migration show the country has sent back more people in the first few weeks of June than any recent month.”
