The border situation continues to deteriorate, with thousands of migrants demanding asylum into the U.S. Many more try to cross illegally, being apprehended and released into the country. Congress is close to passing a weak bill to help the issue—loaded with Democrat traps to make the problem worse. Meanwhile, Mexico is shaming our own lawmakers with a stunning show of support at the border.
Vice President Pence recently slammed Democrats in Congress when he said that Mexico was doing more to help the border crisis than they were. He was 100% correct. As more and more migrants bombard our Southern border, Democrats in the House put their fingers in their ears and ignore it. They would rather see our nation fall apart, than do anything to fix this problem.
For months, President Trump has called on Congress to pass a bill that would fix our immigration loopholes and provide funding for the border. Democrats instead have ran bogus investigations against him in the hopes of impeaching the president. Their lack of willingness has been shocking. And don’t think Americans haven’t noticed.
Now, after Trump threatened to take drastic action to deport millions, Democrats are trying to pass a pathetic bill that neglects key funding. Worse still, they are trying to force through plans that would make our immigration system even weaker. President Trump has struck back with a threat to veto whatever they pass.

The House bill refuses to provide funds for our detention centers. According to some reports, Pelosi is trying to put in provisions that will allow illegal immigrants and asylum seekers to use kids as props to bypass our vetting process.
Once again, Democrats are trying to make the situation worse. Instead of cooperating with the president, they still want to undermine the border crisis. Are these people nuts? Or are they so corrupt, they can’t even pass a basic bill to help Americans?
Meanwhile, Mexico announced even bigger steps they are taking to protect our border and fulfill their end of the deal.
“Mexico has deployed almost 15,000 troops to the US-Mexico border to curve migration flow,” CNN reporter Nick Valencia tweeted. “An additional ~2,000 National Guard elements have also been deployed across the country’s southern border with Guatemala & Belize.: MX Secretary of Defense Luis Sandoval.” [Source: Daily Wire]
That is a seriously large force. Mexico is sending nearly 15,000 National Guard troops to our border to address the migrant crisis. Even Valencia from CNN had to say he’s “never seen this kind of cooperation from Mexico before.”
Mexico has already sent thousands of troops to secure their Southern border with Guatemala. They have pleaded to build more detention centers on their own land. Also, a new policy is being enacted that will require asylum seekers to apply for asylum in the first country they reach. For most, that is Mexico.
All this will significantly curtail the massive influx of migrants coming to the U.S. In short order, we could see the crisis come to an end.
None of this has happened because of Democrats in Congress. If they had their way, we’d have no border. Hundreds of thousands of migrants would invade our country. We’d be overrun. Our communities would be in shambles.
When they are asked to pass a simple bill, they use it as a chance to make the problem worse. Yet Mexico, which historically hasn’t done anything to help our immigration problems, is doing an incredible job of helping.
What does that say to you about the kind of people in Congress? They have less concern for Americans than the Mexican government.
Trump has effectively cooperated with the likes of North Korea, the Middle East, and Mexico. Yet members of his own government continue to cause serious problems.
How more pathetic can the Democrats get? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
