House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was caught in a new lie that shows the border crisis has grown beyond Democrats’ ability to downplay.
“We have never not said that there was a crisis. There is a humanitarian crisis at the border,” Pelosi said Thursday.
Unfortunately for the California Democrat, Americans have not forgotten her televised public address just three months ago in response to President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency.
“President Trump must stop holding the American people hostage — must stop manufacturing a crisis,” she said.
At the time, Pelosi’s talking point was echoed by fellow Democrats decrying Trump’s crisis as “manufactured.”
But with 109,000 migrants apprehended at the border just last month, and story after story of the logistical nightmare that has ensued from thousands of illegal immigrants and asylum seekers swarming the border, even Pelosi must now admit there is a problem.
