During his visit to the border last week, President Donald Trump met with Border Patrol agents for a round table discussion of the escalating border crisis, where he stated, “Our country is full, our area’s full, the sector is full. We can’t take you anymore, I’m sorry, can’t happen. So turn around, that’s the way it is.”
When Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi learned about that, she nearly lost it. Bizarrely, she compared it to the biblical story of Mary and Joseph being turned away from the inn.
Apparently, she is just devastated to find that Trump actually cares about upholding the laws of our country.
“I don’t have my phone here – does anyone have it? But we have to respect – when the President said – what did he say? ‘We don’t have the room?’ My God, I thought it was Mary and Joseph at Christmas,” she said.
“We don’t have room? There is no room in the inn?’ What is this? Of course there is room and there is need,” Pelosi said.
She further went on to say economists have regularly said what is needed is “comprehensive immigration reform” to keep the economy rolling.
This time around, the trigger for Pelosi was President Trump’s statement about the country being full.
Trump was discussing the situation at the southern border at the time.
His comments were directed at our immigration courts and processing centers being completely overwhelmed by the sheer amounts of immigrants seeking asylum and entering the country illegally.
Right and Wrong
Citing the economists is a bit deceiving by Pelosi. Yes, we have job openings and record low unemployment numbers.
However, that does not mean you give a free pass to those who break the law to get into the country while others wait.
You simply cannot give people that broke the law a priority over those that are going about it the right way or you lose the integrity of your borders.
The moment you do what Pelosi is proposing, you lose your status as a sovereign nation.
