Letter: America needs to wake up to reality
The federal shutdown had absolutely nothing to do with “Trump’s wall.”
The shutdown was orchestrated because Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party have been hijacked by socialists who now hold far more power than the moderate left.
The hypocrisy of Democrats and news media — peas in the same pod — makes Mount Everest look like an ant mound. People like Schumer and Pelosi sleep behind locked gates and security walls every night. If illegals pouring across that border were Republicans, Schumer and Pelosi would be building that wall themselves.
The left calls the looming catastrophe on our southern border “Trump’s manufactured crises.” Well, this particular crises has, in recent years, resulted in the deaths of U.S. citizens. According to ICE, between 2017 and 2018 they arrested immigrants for about 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes and 4,000 murders.
During one seven-year stretch, Texas (one state) investigated 642,000 crimes involving immigrants. The lives of thousands of Americans have been turned upside down during “Trump’s manufactured crises.” One salt-grain size fentanyl speck can kill an adult. Just that one months’ increase could kill every American citizen.
Liberals like to say “ Americans commit more crimes than illegals.” Heart disease kills more than cancer. So we can stop fighting cancer, right?
Just a thought, but maybe this country should consider waking up before disappearing down the sewer drain of socialism. If the perpetrators of another major terrorist attack sneak in across that “manufactured crises” guess who the American people will blame. Hint, it’s not President Donald Trump!
