The border crisis is REAL: Texas cities now overwhelmed with tens of thousands of invading migrants as Nancy Pelosi and Democrats yawn
By JD Heyes // Apr 01, 2019

In February POTUS Donald Trump, acting on the advice and counsel of his Homeland Security officials and political counsel, declared a national emergency along the U.S.-Mexico border. 


Painting the declaration with the usual brushes of “bigotry,” “racism,” and “hate,” Democrats wasted no time in mounting opposition to the declaration, which they managed to push through the House of Representatives.

Unfortunately, the GOP-controlled Senate also approved legislation opposing the president’s declaration. Undeterred, however, POTUS issued his first legislative veto, and the House was unable to override it.

But rather than help the president address the growing crisis, Democrats and some RINOs in Congress have since pivoted to other issues that are far less important or pressing — like gun control, the president’s taxes, and seeing the complete report on the Russian collusion hoax filed recently by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Meanwhile, the border crisis has only gotten worse — so much so, in fact, that seasoned Border Patrol agents and others living along the southwestern boundary are now witnessing a crush of illegal immigrants in numbers they’ve never seen before.

And our country’s ability to handle all of them has been overwhelmed.

As noted by The Wall Street Journal in early March, Border Patrol arrests of migrant families reached an all-time high, which led to the chief of Customs and Border Protection then to declare the system is at “the breaking point.”

The paper reported further:

From October through February, border agents arrested 136,150 people traveling in families at the southern border. Those figures exceeded the record for a full, 12-month period; 107,212 people were arrested during the federal fiscal year that ended in September.

More than 66,400 people were arrested in February, making it the busiest month since President Trump took office and the busiest February since 2008. Since 2013, when the U.S. Customs and Border Protection began counting family units, there have been 2.6 million total apprehensions along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Really, we’ve never seen anything like this before”

Of course, it’s appropriate to ask who is behind migrant invasions, what is the ultimate purpose for them, and — importantly — what can the U.S. government do to exert the kind of pressure on those responsible to get them to stop. And it’s very likely those questions are either being asked or have been answered already, and ‘diplomatic efforts’ are taking place behind the scenes to deal with the problem.

But in the meantime, the “situation is not sustainable,” said CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan last month. “The system is well beyond capacity and remains” at the point of failure.

“The surge numbers are just overwhelming the entire system,” he added.

Cities along the Tex-Mex border are especially hard-hit. McAllen, Texas, for example, according to USA Today — hardly a conservative/Republican media organ — reported that asylum seekers are being released into the city at a rate exceeding 800 per day. They have been herded into church shelters, makeshift camps, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement shelters, which are full to capacity. 

“It’s staggering,” McAllen City Manager Roy Rodriguez told the paper. “Really, we’ve never seen anything like this before.”

Theresa Brown, director of immigration and cross-border policy at the Bipartisan Policy Center, who was a CBP policy adviser under Presidents George W. Bush and Obama, put the situation even more bluntly: “This is a system-wide collapse.”

But is it? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who is safely ensconced in an upstate mansion when she’s home or surrounded by gates and guards in Washington, D.C., has accused the president of fomenting fear with the “illusion” of an emergency at the border. Other Democrats have said similar things.

Record apprehensions, services taxed beyond their limits, and American cities pushed beyond their capacity to handle the overflow of humanity sounds like a pretty convincing national emergency.
