In a Monday letter to McAleenan, the Democrats suggested that the Trump administration’s border security policies were setting up “a range of other catastrophic issues,” according to The Hill.

Arizona Democratic Reps. Ruben Gallego, Raúl Grijalva, Ann KirkpatrickGreg Stanton and Tom O’Halleran wrote that the administration’s measures to use Defense Department funds, build a wall, cut aid to Central America and threaten to shut down the U.S.-Mexico border “will create a range of other catastrophic issues and fail to address this humanitarian crisis in any way.” –The Hill

“This humanitarian crisis requires a humanitarian response,” reads the letter. “To that end, we believe that you should immediately increase communication and coordination among federal, state, local, and tribal governments as well as non-governmental stakeholders to promote the well-being and safety of migrant families, process asylum claims quicker, efficiently use federal and non-federal resources, and ensure that DHS [Department of Homeland Security] can meet its national security mission.”

On April 16, the city of Yuma, AZ declared an emergency over the influex of migrants, however according to the Arizona Mirror the town has yet to receive meaningful funding from state or federal agencies.

Wait, what border crisis? 

Many of the same Democrats who signed the letter have repeatedly denied that there is a crisis at the border, only to eventually call it a “humanitarian crisis” created by President Trump.

Last August, Gallego encouraged US government officials to disobey orders from the sitting president in response to the Trump administration’s immigration policies.

Last month, Rep. Kirkpatrick –  one of the Arizona Democrats asking DHS to appoint a crisis coordinator – said: “a border wall doesn’t solve anything.

Except that walls work…

In 2013, Israel completed a 143-mile fence with Egypt that cost around $2.9 million per mile – which resulted in a 99% decrease in illegal immigration that even Politifact deemed true.

Meanwhile, “Bulgaria erected a barrier on its Turkish perimeter in 2013. That year’s 11,000 illegal crossings dropped to 4,000 in 2014 — down 63.6 percent,” according to National Reviewwhich adds “Just as British Gibraltar dangles from Spain’s underside, Spanish Ceuta and Melilla surf atop Morocco. Multiple fences and barriers there sliced 2014’s 2,100 arrests at the Spanish-territorial/Moroccan frontier to 2015’s 100 — down 95.2 percent.”

Back in the US, the Border Patrol reported a 93.7% decrease in San Diego county border crossings between 1992, when a border wall was installed, and 2017. The apprehension rate dropped from around 560,000 to 26,086.

And as the National Review noted in January:

 A barrier between the Tucson, Ariz., sector and Nogales, Mexico, was erected in 2000. That year’s 616,346 arrests plunged to 38,657 in FY 2017 — down 93.7 percent.

 A fence installed at the border between Yuma, Arizona, and Los Algondones, Mexico brought apprehensions from 138,438 in FY 2005 to 12,847 in FY 2017 — down 90.7 percent.

Crime has significantly decreased in the Yuma area,” then–acting homeland security secretary Elaine Duke wrote in USA Today in August 2017, “and smugglers now look for other less difficult areas of the border to cross — often areas without fencing.”

• A 150-mile barrier between Israel and southern Egypt cut the number of illegal-alien entrants from 17,000 in 2011 to 43 in 2013, after the fence’s completion, Israel’s Ministry of the Interior states — down 99.7 percent.

And now, Arizona Democrats who mocked the notion of a border crisis, then called it Trump’s ‘manufactured humanitarian crisis,’ are now asking his administration for help – with the southern border.

    • I’ve been saying that, they can also send 40 or 50 to the demoRat CockRoaches Schmucker’s and 40 or 50 to Maxi Pads, then to Hollyweird and Chicago, and New York and Washington DC and Boston. See there’s plenty of places for them all sanctuary and safe and they want migrants anyway! So instead of putting them up in tents just hand out directions or even bus them there it’s a lot cheaper. Look at how much money the taxpayer would be saving. but no welfare that’s up to these wonderful open heart sanctuary Demorat’s.

  1. It’d figure that the DamnNOcraps would pull a hypocritical move like this. The dumbasses can’t see anything in front of them due to their heads shoved so far up their tail ends. It might be a little to late to save them. They changed their tune probably because of personal run ins with MS-13 gang members.

    • Or Drugs, Rape, Gangs, Diseases, begging, robbing, you know all the great things immigrants bring with them. And just think those Cockroach DemoRats wanted for us to have all these great educated people.Them Rats have big hearts don’t they? By the way if you want more just keep right along voting for the Demorats

  2. WE the people are absolutely sick and tired of these hypocrite, lying, corrupt Democrats of pulling this crap! It is so enraging, yet comical, and unacceptable that they joined in their accusations of no crisis at the border, and then turning around and asking for help practically the next moment, with A CRISIS something that THEY themselves labeled it as, after claiming it wasn’t a crisis, putting President Trump through all kinds of grief, and then telling the DHS to step up their game, and process the claims quicker. WHAT A BUNCH OF LYING F*****G HYPOCRITES! These people are mentally deranged! I’m convinced that most Democrats and Liberals have a mental disorder! They can’t stop themselves from lying, and being just straight up corrupt individuals! I have lost ALL respect for them all! What’s more, when you think about all of the Democrat Socialist candidates, wanting open borders, and free everything for everyone… they’re sick… they are mentally sick! It’s just sick and disgusting, they couldn’t stop lying or stop being corrupt if they tried. I’m convinced that them, along with their Destroy America pals in the mainstream media, have no souls. The media, giving themselves awards for their two year reporting nothing good, half truths, and straight up lies. What a pathetic group of soulless creatures. They have shown that they are so full of hate, it’s sad, and pitiful. (Cortez, Omar, Harris, Pelosi, Waters, Schumer, and a buttload of others) The two tiered system of justice just keeps getting more and more out of control. Simply wearing a MAGA hat, and having white skin sends them over the edge (Covington Kids). I only hope that enough of them wake up, see the light, and #walkaway before it’s too late. What’d I’d really love to see, is bulldozers to flatten all the walls around Pelosi’s estates, and all the other Democrats that support open borders, and helping illegals… then invite all of the illegals to their homes/estates for free room and board, free medical, and global universal paychecks to all be paid out of their own finances. I figure only right since they all want open borders, and are all about helping the illegals, instead of us, the legal citizens of this country, that they should lead by example first, and experience what it is that they’re trying to oppress the rest of us with first. Funny when faced with the idea of illegals being bussed to illegal sanctuary cities, that they all started complaining. What… poop maps, and the homeless population getting too big? They remind me of Switzerland… trying to not lose face by not reporting the truth about what’s going on, how the police are powerless to even protect the citizens due to their orders, even when the illegals are committing crimes. They’ve all lost their freakn minds.

  3. 1000% AGREE all these DEMORAT COCKROACHES NEED TO BE EXTERMINATED AND SWEPT OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH. THEY HAVE SHOWN US WE DO NOT NEED CONGRESS, JUST LOOK AT WHAT IT’S COSTING US TO KEEP THESE COCKROACHES COZY. I SAY GET RID OF THIS SCUMBAG SHIT DEMORATS
