For the record: “More physical barriers are part of the solution. The goal of the migrants is simply to set foot into the United States and then perhaps stay for years or never leave as their asylum claims are adjudicated. It gives us more control if it is harder to cross illegally and they can be made to apply at ports of entry.” —National Review

Braying Jenny: “The one thing that the president has not talked about is the fact that he has systematically engaged in the violation … of human rights on our borders. … The president should not be asking for more to an agency that has systematically violated human rights. The president should really be defending why we’re funding such an agency at all because right now what we’re seeing is death. Right now what we’re seeing is the violation of human rights.” —Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

The BIG Lie: “He’s trying to restrict every form of legal immigration there is in the United States. He’s fighting against family unification. He’s fighting against the diversity visa lottery. He’s fighting against almost every legal way people can actually legally enter this country, forcing them to become undocumented and then he’s trying to attack their undocumented status.” —Ocasio-Cortez

Delusions of grandeur: “I think that [Ocasio-Cortez] is introducing bold ideas that should be discussed. And I think it’s good for the party and frankly I think it’s good for the country.” —Kamala Harris

Braying Jackass: “I understand that I am a member of Congress, and I don’t want anything that I do or say to distract us. And that’s the only thing that I apologize for is that it was a distraction.” —Rashida “Impeach the Motherf—er” Tlaib

Alpha Jackass: “How stupid are Americans who still believe there’s a crisis on the southern border?” —MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough

And last… “I believe in what the president is doing. When he says that this is a national security problem, he’s absolutely correct. And that doesn’t come just from me — that comes from professionals who have been doing this their entire adult lives, serving the country on the border, protecting the citizens. They’re saying [the wall] works.” —Obama Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan
