How do Democrats solve a huge, costly problem? Have the Media declare it's NOT a problem but an "opportunity"
Republican lawmakers have blamed the surge on Obama's executive order to the Border Patrol to stop deporting illegals if they haven't committed a "serious" crime--and sneaking in without authorization doesn't qualify.
Once they're in the U.S. the teens are deliberately turning themselves in to the Border Patrol, which gives them a ride in air-conditioned cars to the nearest checkpoint, where they're given further transport to temporary housing at a military base or other commandeered facility.
Obama has requested $2 Billion just to deal with the wave. By most standards that would make it a "crisis."
But the Democrats have a way to easily turn a "crisis" into a positive event: Trot out a leading Democrat who will say it's really a welcome event, and have their friends in the Media serve the fable to gullible Americans.
And sure enough, Democrat rep Nancy Pelosi visited the Texas-Mexico border on Saturday and said the newest wave of illegals those crossing should be welcomed and not treated as a problem but as an "opportunity."
"This crisis that some call a crisis, we have to view as an opportunity," Pelosi said. "If you believe as we do that every child, every person has a spark of divinity in them, and is therefore worthy of respect -- what we saw in those rooms was [a] dazzling, sparkling, array of God's children, worthy of respect."
Pelosi acknowledged that the surge "does have crisis qualities," but again urged the public to use it as an "opportunity to show who we are as Americans, that we do respect people for their dignity and worth."
Wow, just like
Well, except for the two Billion we'll have to borrow to cover the cost of dealing with the new non-crisis non-problem. And if you think that will cover it you don't know politics or government.
Tell us, Nancy: Is there a single person on this earth who isn't one of God's children, or doesn't have "a spark of divinity in them"? By your logic, wouldn't everyone on the planet qualify to stay in the U.S. permanently?
