Bernie Sanders declares"We have a crisis at the border"

100,000 apprehensions in March, 4000 in one day. Call it what you will... invasion, humanitarian crisis, human flood, refugees..... Houston we have a problem.

With the democrat party putting their collective heads in the sand,  all we see is their butts. Completely blind to reality at the expense of average Americans. One of the democrat hopefuls,  Beto O’Rourke, sees no problem on the border at all. He is an ignorant fool by thinking the de-nile runs along the border with Mexico.

 

Time for a change, To every thing there is a season and that season is now! 

How about we apply compassion, truth, walls, fences, electronics, drones, military expertise and real immigration laws, and no politics. The Border Patrol is overwhelmed. Relocating 2000 BP agents to the deserts. 

 

Close the border, declare national emergency  until we have SOMETHING different than what we have now!

Tens of thousands of refugees, mostly families, at the border.  Most from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.  Surely someone clued them in, even in their poverty-stricken countries, about the craziness going on at the American border with the American president, but still they come.  Why? 

 

The president talks about addressing the problem at the end -- when they reach the border.  JMO, but it seems to me that you should be looking at addressing the problem at its roots.   What would keep them from coming and making the trip in the first place?  (No, knowing a wall is there would not stop them as the president claimed.)  Threats at the border obviously aren't a very good deterent and I daresay, cutting off aid to the Northern Triangle countries isn't going to work either.  Indeed, it shall make it worse.  All the walls, fences, drones in the world won't stop a desperate person from leaving what they perceive as a worst place or fate.

 The basic problems with illegal  immigration concerns  won't be solved by a WALL.  

    Central America is the size of France or Texas. 
It's been noted that rapid population expansion has had important demographic and social effects.    Not only does each new human generate  tons of pollution and trash   but the need in population growth requires more food, jobs, schools,  facilities, housing and healthcare.  

When the govt or private enterprize cannot provide the above needs then people are forced to a life of poverty or become criminals.     I don't personally believe they WANT to leave their country of origin and I also DO believe the gov'ts aren't sad to see them go.    Global Mobile is a joint effort by Planned Parenthood and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)  would help with population control and hope for Central America.   

 

 United States is providing more than $2.6 billion in foreign assistance to Central American countries in fiscal years 2015-2018.

See sand, insert head.

Walls are not force fields, but that's what you chose to focus on. Failed talking point. However in case you missed it I said
