Looking like something out of a hostage tape, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi made a feeble and spurious attempt to respond to Donald Trump’s argument for a wall at the Southern border. Attempts at fact checking by the left wing media went off the rails.
CBS News, for example, conducted a live fact check on their website in preparation for misstatements from the president. But the claims they checked turned out to be true, “probably true,” and “accurate…but it needs context.”
Walls do work, says the chief of the Border Patrol under obama:
The chief of U.S. Border Patrol during Barack Obama’s presidency said Monday that President Trump is right in his view that border walls are effective.
Mark Morgan said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that walls “absolutely work” and that there is no real argument against building and implementing one.
He added that although he was removed from his position by President Trump’s administration, Trump’s stance on border security makes sense.
“The president is right. … That’s based on historical data and facts that can be proven,” Morgan said.
Walls are effective, say the facts:
In a fact check by Breitbart News, Nancy Pelosi is incorrect in her statement that a wall along the southern border would be ineffective in stopping and ending illegal immigration.
In 1992, a barrier in San Diego, California, was constructed, causing illegal border crossings to drop by 92 percent, according to a statement from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spokeswoman Katie Waldman. In 1993 in El Paso, Texas, a barrier was built at the border, and illegal crossings dropped by 92 percent in one year alone.
In Tuscon, Arizona, a border barrier was built, and illegal border crossings fell by 90 percent over 15 years. In the neighboring sector of Yuma, Arizona, illegal immigration has dropped by 95 percent over nine years after a border barrier was constructed.
The wall will pay for itself.
The reality is that the wall is a metaphor for real border security. Walls where they are really needed, other measures where appropriate.
But let’s get down to the nitty gritty. Illegal immigration is costly. Illegal immigration is harmful – primarily to black people.

“Black males are more likely to experience competition from illegal immigrants,” Kirsanow said.
A U.S. Civil Rights Commission report from 2010 found that immigration in general harmed the black community more than others. The report did not differentiate between illegal and legal immigration.
“What happens is you eliminate the rungs on the ladder because a sizable number of black men don’t have access to entry-level jobs,” Kirsanow said. “It is not just the competition and the unemployment of blacks. It also depresses the wage levels.”
Other members of the black community have also spoken out against the negative effects of illegal immigration. One black writer argued illegal immigration hurts the “economic stability” of the black community.
“Blacks and the working class shouldn’t be taxed to pay for illegal immigrants,” said Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper.
He added to Secrets, “Unfortunately it’s happening all across the country. Once again the Democrats take blacks and poor people for granted. This time they expect us to pay the bills too for their bad ideas. Either stem the tide of illegal immigration or find a new way to fund this costly effort.”
His black leadership network just issued a set of demands titled, “Blueprint for a Better Deal for Black America.”
Illegal immigration suppresses black wages.
Talk to a liberal about this and they’ll go off spouting some gobbledygook about the cost of lettuce and having their homes and hotel rooms cleaned.
We are constantly barraged with liberals screaming that Trump is a racist, but the real white supremacists are white democrats, with Schumer and Pelosi at the top of the list.
Who benefits from illegal immigration? Liberals, mostly. Their meals are cheaper in the big cities. Their lettuce is cheaper. They have their mansions and hotel rooms cleaned for less money. These, and voting for democrats upon whom illegals depend for their living, are the big issues.
The only ones who benefit from illegal immigration are those who hire them at artificially low wages at the cost of black wages and jobs. democrats put illegals before black Americans like Jamiel Shaw.
That makes those who oppose real border security and the wall the real white supremacists.
