Contrary to what the Left, mainstream news, and late night talk show hosts would like America believe – there is an emergency happening at the US-Mexico border.

It’s getting so bad in the border states that there is just no way for our agents to keep up.

However, liberals are pushing the narrative that Trump and the Border Patrol are making illegal crossings out to be worse than they actually are. Jim Acosta’s famous (or infamous) wall report from a few months ago showed that no illegals were clamoring over each other trying to get into the US…

Of course, the fact that McAllen, Texas is almost 800 miles away from El Paso (where a lot of the hottest illegal crossings happen), that there was ACTUALLY a wall, or that he was there in the middle of the day wasn’t addressed…

Yes, Jim Acosta’s video did more to help show how walls actually DO help deter illegal crossings – so… thanks, Jim.

Regardless of the facts that are sitting, staring America right in the face, Leftist news and entertainment sources are continually trying to contradict the president on numbers, criminal activity, or effectiveness of walls.

Facts…

Facts are things that the Left only seems to dabble in ONCE in a while – only when it fits their narrative (which doesn’t happen very often).

Here are some facts about the emergency happening at our border that we, as Americans, shouldn’t ignore…

Fact #1 – In February, more than 76,000 illegals crossed the US-Mexico border.

76,000 people is a LOT of people – it’s enough to almost fill Notre Dame Stadium up to the brim or overflow the stadium for the

Carolina Panthers…

And that’s just for one month.

If we’re allowing 75,000 people to cross our border every month, that’s almost a million illegal people coming into the US every year.

That’s a lot of people…

Especially when you understand that number is dwarfed by the visa overstays that are happening every year as well, which is estimated to be 11 million by the Department of Homeland Security – and you’re looking at a crisis that our Border Control and ICE agents just can’t stop alone.

Fact #2 – The Left downplay the numbers and appeal to emotions to further their agenda.

Have you listened to or watched any of the talking heads at CNN or MSNBC?

If they ever talk about illegal immigration, they rarely talk numbers – and if they do, they make them seem small and insignificant.

Like when this liberal news source downplayed statistics when talking about the number of illegals apprehended in 2017 as opposed to 600,000 visa overstays, saying, “During that same year, there were just 300,000 apprehensions along the Southern border, according to Customs and Border Protection — the lowest number since 1971.”

For the record, 300,000 people is a LOT of people.

That’s the population of cities like Anchorage, Pittsburgh, and Cincinnati materializing from nowhere in just a year.

And those are just the arrests!

Nine hundred thousand illegals crossing in a year is like having a city the size of San Francisco, California or Columbus, Ohio just popping up…

How can the Left not see how hard this is on our already taxed system and resources?

Well, their tactic is to ignore the numbers and focus on emotion…
Showing pictures and videos of kids in cages or families detained by Border Patrol or ICE agents arresting overstays and marching them out of their homes.

They’re attempting to deflect the focus from what this influx of illegals actually is…

An invasion.

Not the kind that is coming to take over – but the kind of invasion that fundamentally changes the foundation of our country forever.

Fact #3 – Border Patrol is understaffed – by the thousands.

Think numbers…

In 2017, 300,000 illegals were arrested– by 20,000 border agents.

That’s 15 arrests per agent, broken down…

It doesn’t seem like a lot until you understand that most of our agents are clustered at ports of entry – and it becomes a lot more impressive.

This is the reality of our border…

It’s understaffed by a huge number – some experts say by at least 2,000, others say a LOT more…

Even worse, that number gets worse daily – as retention is also a huge problem when it comes to this all but thankless job.

That’s what makes a wall so important…

It will allow our border agents to be more effective by narrowing the area they have to physically patrol and giving them more control as to where these illegals can cross easily.

Fact #4 – The Left WANT these illegals here for the power of their vote.

That sounds crazy, right?

You’re probably thinking, “How can that be true when illegal immigrants can’t vote?”

Well, that’s the catch…

While they can’t vote now, Democrats are fighting hard to get this changed.

Think about it…

Why would they be opposed to somebody having a state ID card proving they are a citizen and, even more, proving that person is exactly who they say they are.

If ID’s aren’t needed, who’s to say who votes?

You need an ID to get on a plane or buy alcohol – but not one to determine the direction and future of our great country?

This doesn’t make sense…

And this isn’t the only thing they’re working on as there are rumblings of allowing anybody in the US, regardless of citizenship, the right to vote.

Are you starting to see why Trump keeps calling the situation at the border an “emergency”?

There’s a simple reason why he keeps referring to it as an “emergency”…

And that’s because it is!

Try to get an explanation from a liberal as to why we should allow illegals to just flow into the US freely…

See if they don’t play on emotions rather than try to state facts.

We need to build a wall…

Plain and simple. If for no other fact than to let American citizens know that their national government sees their safety as paramount.

Honestly, ask them earnestly…

“What harm could a wall do to US security?”

“Men of sense often learn from their enemies. It is from their foes, not their friends, that cities learn the lesson of building high walls and ships of war.” – Aristophanes
