Caravans of migrants are pouring toward the United States’ southern border.
The situation is dire.
But there is one horrifying truth about the caravan that Chuck Schumer doesn’t want you to know.
Chuck Schumer is leading the Democrat opposition in the Senate.
Schumer – and other Trump opponents – claim there is no emergency at the southern border and that Congress should block Donald Trump’s declaration of national emergency to unlock access to money to build a border wall.
But Schumer – as well as many members of the fake news media – have been lying to you.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen testified that as many as one million illegal alien migrants will try to cross into the United States in 2019.
The Daily Caller reports:
Illegal arrivals at the U.S. southern border are set to hit one million by the end of fiscal year 2019, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told Congress in prepared remarks Wednesday morning.
“The agency is now on track to apprehend more migrants crossing illegally in the first six months of this fiscal year than the entirety of FY17, and at the current pace we are on track to encounter close to one million illegal aliens at our southern border this year,” Nielsen said.
Nielsen’s testimony comes just one day after Customs and Border Patrol revealed that in February U.S. authorities apprehended or detained 75,000 illegal aliens constituting a 30 percent increase in illegal encounters or apprehensions over the previous month. Nielsen warned that “I can report today that CBP is forecasting the problem will get even worse this spring.”
If that doesn’t scream emergency then many Americans don’t know what does.
They believe something must be done to stem the tide of migrant caravans trying to invade the United States.
That’s why they support Donald Trump’s emergency declaration to build a border wall.
