Nancy Pelosi Cries UNCLE: Admits There is a Huge Border Crisis and We have to Secure It!
For over two years, the Democrats have stated that The President was mistaken and that his ‘crisis’ was ‘manufactured’ and that there is no border crisis. Nancy Pelosi has now reversed course, and is not only admitting that there is a crisis, but that we have to secure the border. She is also falsely claiming that Democrats “have never not said that there was a crisis”.
“Well, let me just say this. We have never not said that there was a crisis — there is a humanitarian crisis at the border, and some of it provoked by the actions taken by the administration,” Pelosi, a California Democratic representative, said Thursday during her weekly press conference.
“What is happening at the border is tragic and we hope to address some of that in the disaster supplemental,” Pelosi said, referring to the multibillion-dollar disaster aid bill being developed in Congress. “And we understand our responsibility to secure our border.”
So now they want to throw billions at the border, not to build a wall, but to aid those crashing our border illegally.
This is definitely a total reversal, just from a few weeks ago, when Pelosi and the Democrats were claiming that it was all a manufactured crisis by President Trump!
“The President’s unlawful declaration over a crisis that does not exist does great violence to our Constitution and makes America less safe, stealing from urgently needed defense funds for the security of our military and our nation,” read a joint statement from Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in February, attacking President Donald Trump for declaring a national emergency at the border.
The Democrats have been very clear. There. Is. No. Crisis. At. The. Border.
There. Is. No. Crisis. At. The. Border.

“The first, most dramatic thing we found was there is no crisis at the border,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said in February after visiting the border near El Paso, Texas.
Over, and over and over….they have claimed there is no crisis and that it was all manufatcured. So why have they made a full reversal…all of a sudden?
Because in April, over 100,000 people tried to crash our border, that is why!
The Daily Caller expands:
Democratic governors across the U.S. also contended that there was no crisis, and their positions on the issue resulted in less manpower at the U.S.-Mexico border. Three Democratic governors — Gavin Newsom of California, Tony Evers of Wisconsin, and Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico — pulled their state’s National Guard troops from the border.
“There is simply not ample evidence to support the president’s contention that there exists a national security crisis at our southwestern border,” Evers stated in February. “Therefore, there is no justification for the ongoing presence of Wisconsin National Guard personnel at the border.”
However, as thousands of illegal aliens have continued to reach the U.S. border every month, pushing immigration facilities past their breaking point, Democrats have begun changing their tune. April marked the second consecutive month where encounters at the southern border topped 100,000 and Border Patrol apprehension numbers have risen every month this year.
This is going to get interesting. In one week, Nancy Pelosi makes a 180 on the border and Ocasio-Cortez claims that she was just kidding about only having 12 years to reverse climate change.
Could it be that the 2020 Democrat primary election is getting into full swing and they are trying to find a road to beat President Trump? Could it be that even the MSM, including the NYT is beginning to admit the truth? Maybe it is why the last time Pelosi visited the border, she became entirely incoherent?
As we have reported extensively, the Democrats are in a complete civil war, and it is messy.
Keep the popcorn coming!!! Extra butter please!!!
