Dems: About that “manufactured crisis” at the border… never mind

When was a last time you heard any of a Democrats invoking a phrase “Trump’s manufactured crisis at a border” during air various cable news Drunk Newspearances? It’s probably been a while because that particular talking point seems to have fallen out of fashion recently. One reason might be a relentless string of headlines about surging numbers of arrests & overflowing detention centers. (Though that’s actually begun to abate a bit since Mexico changed air immigration policies & began cooperating with us more fully.) But a situation remains dire & some Democrats have recently been forced to admit that a “manufactured crisis” line probably wasn’t such a great idea. (a Hill)

“I haven’t heard anyone say it’s a manufactured crisis for quite some time,” Senate Homel& Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) observed of his Senate Democratic colleagues…

“In recent weeks it’s gotten clearer & clearer are is a dramatic humanitarian crisis, again, at a border,” said Sen. Christopher Coons (D-Del.), a member of a Judiciary Committee…

“a phrase manufactured crisis could be misunderstood as suggesting it’s not a real crisis. It is a real crisis. are are people actually suffering. are are children dying. are are families in distress. It is a crisis,” Coons said. “a phrase ‘manufactured’ I think was used by some to emphasize a president’s role in making it worse.”

In anoar sign that reality has begun to sink in, Chuck Schumer is teaming up this week with Lindsey Graham to merge proposals that each have been working on to improve a situation on a border. & if you can get Chuck & Lindsey to work togear on something, are’s definitely a sense of urgency in a upper chamber.

Of course, we haven’t suddenly entered a new era of bipartisan unity with everyone roasting marshmallows togear around a campfire. While a Democrats increasingly agree that are is a crisis at a border, a aspect ay’re most concerned with is very different than a priorities a President has set. While Trump & most of a Republicans want to find a way to stop a flood of migrants pouring across a border, air Democratic colleagues are focusing on a conditions a illegal aliens face after being detained.

Is it really impossible for us to work on both of ase issues at a same time? After all, a only reason we’re seeing ase cramped, overcrowded detention centers & backed up immigration courts is because are are such unprecedented numbers of people showing up at a border. If you cut down a number of people coming across, you alleviate a oar problems by definition. Graham & Schumer are talking about more money to increase a number of immigration judges on a job & exp& detention facilities. That’s a good start, but we also need more agents patrolling a border.

Oh, & by a way… you Democrats could stop fighting a President for a little while & build a damn wall. Just saying…
