Pelosi and Schumer FURIOUS! The New York Times Goes Full Trump Support On Border Crisis
The NYT editorial board has just made a stunning reversal on the border crisis, leaving Pelosi, Schumer and an the entire Democrat party speechless! They are telling congress to give Trump the money. They humbly admit that the situation at the border has become blatantly the crisis the President has been calling it.
While the piece takes plenty of opportunity to excoriate The President, (It is the NYT still), it makes it clear that something must be done at the border. The piece also focuses on ways, beside the wall, that will help, something President Trump has done as well.
It walks far away from the false narrative the left has been claiming that the whole border situation is a manufactured crisis.

Here is a piece:
President Trump is right: There is a crisis at the southern border. Just not the one he rants about…But as record numbers of Central American families flee violence and poverty in their homelands, they are overwhelming United States border systems, fueling a humanitarian crisis of overcrowding, disease and chaos.
The Border Patrol is now averaging 1,200 daily arrests, with many migrants arriving exhausted and sick…On Wednesday, the White House sent Congress a request for $4.5 billion in emergency funding to help manage the surge. In a letter to lawmakers, the acting director of the White House’s budget office, Russell Vought, sought to convey the scope of the challenge.
“In February, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) encountered more than 76,000 illegal border crossers and inadmissible aliens, and in March that number exceeded 100,000 — the highest monthly level in more than a decade,” Mr. Vought wrote. He described what he said were “alarming numbers” of women and children jammed into Border Patrol stations never intended as long-term shelters.

Most urgently, the program that deals with unaccompanied minors is expected to run dry next month, requiring resources to be diverted from other programs and leading to a further deterioration in conditions…Nearly three-quarters of the funds, $3.3 billion, would be earmarked for humanitarian needs, with much of it flowing to the Office of Refugee Resettlement, the agency responsible for unaccompanied minors.
None of the money would go toward Mr. Trump’s border wall. Several hundred million dollars would, however, go toward shoring up border security operations, including increasing the number of detention beds overseen by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE. This, for Democrats, is a nonstarter…
The Democratic chairwoman of the House Appropriations Committee, Nita Lowey of New York, said that the administration was seeking billions of dollars to “double down on cruel and ill-conceived policies” and bail out ICE for locking up more migrant families than it could humanely accommodate. But until better policies are in place, Democrats need to find a way to provide money for adequate shelter.
I would have never seen this coming, but If the liberal editors ate the NYT are backing Trump on the border crisis, then Schumer and Pelosi are in a great big mess.
It is high time that the Democrats quit playing politics with this issue. Trump does not hate Mexicans. He loves Americans.
There is a crisis at our border, and it is treason to encourage it, which is what the Democrats have been doing.
This is definitely a game changer.
Keep the popcorn running! Extra butter please!
