Border Invasion for One Reason: Democrats' Invitation

The drastic increase in apprehensions of migrants at the border is a man-made crisis.

The month of May saw the Border Patrol apprehend or deem inadmissible 144,278 migrants, which marks the highest single-month total in 13 years. It was the fourth straight month of increase and the third straight exceeding 100,000 arrests. It’s double February’s number. May 2019 also saw a 182% increase in apprehensions year over year, and a six-fold increase over May 2017. By virtually every measure, America is in the throes of a major border crisis. Acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner John Sanders declared, “We are in a full-blown emergency, and I cannot say this stronger: The system is broken.”

Yet this de facto invasion is happening for one reason and one reason only: Democrats have invited migrants to flood the southern border.

They advocate open borders and create “sanctuary” cities for illegals. They obstruct President Donald Trump’s efforts in Congress and block him in the courts. As our Arnold Ahlert put it today, “You’ve witnessed every bit of [the invasion] abetted by open-border, nation-state-despising, ‘abolish ICE!’ leftists, many of whom believe that any attempt to preserve our customs, culture, language, and exceptionalism is tantamount to white nationalism.”

There are many things that can be done to solve the problem, but until Democrats stop inviting migrants to invade, it will be akin to shoveling snow in a snowstorm.
