Pelosi Blames Trump For Border Crisis
Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blames former President Donald Trump for the current crisis at the US southern border. Moreover, she pointed to the previous administration as the cause of the current migrant mess. During her appearance on ABC News’ “This Week” Sunday, Pelosi said President Joe Biden is fixing things at the moment. “This is a humanitarian challenge to all of us. What the administration has inherited is a broken system at the border and they are working to correct that,” ” she said.

More Migrant Children Approaching the Border
Pelosi confirmed that around 700 more migrant children are approaching the southern border to seek entry into the US. This triggered Biden’s directive to send FEMA to help facilitate the transfer of kids from border care facilities into safe homes. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced Biden's latest correction Saturday. He said Biden ordered the implementation of a government-wide effort to house migrant children with support from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
On Saturday, the Department of Homeland Security ordered FEMA to assist border authorities for the next 90 days and “help receive, shelter and transport the children” who have crossed into the U.S. illegally. The number of children detained at the border tripled to a record high since Biden assumed office. Close to 4,000 migrant children are currently in Border Patrol custody. Due to the high numbers of children currently showing up at the border, Border Patrol custody longer than the maximum 72 hours.
Pelosi Blames Climate Change As Well
The House speaker also mentioned that “climate change” played a role. Droughts in Central American countries pushed migrants to journey north to the US border. She doubled down and insisted Trump's policies had it wrong. “This, again, is a transition from what was wrong before to what is right,” she explained.
In addition, she said the Biden administration wants to uphold the standards of the US Refugee Resettlement Program. They are doing so by installing a system that accommodates and respects the USRRP. At the same time, it will rid the nation of Trump’s allegedly “cruel” approach.
Biden’s Open Border Policies
Under Biden’s open-border policies that promised asylum, migrants overwhelmed the borders. Consequently, this overflowed border detention facilities by as much as 700%. However, the Biden administration and Democrats including Pelosi keep insisting the situation is a challenge. In reality, the country faces an unprecedented border crisis that’s made more dangerous due to COVID-19.
In February alone, the number of migrant encounters alone jumped to over 100,000. The number of unaccompanied children and family units in custody tripled in numbers. The increase in migrants immediately followed Biden’s inauguration. The executive order ordering a stop to border wall construction may have also played a role in the sudden influx.
Trump Blasted Biden’s Policies
Last week, Trump took Biden and his Cabinet to the task. He said that Biden’s weak handling of the border crisis resulted in the US being destroyed by the migrant surge. In a statement released Tuesday, Trump pointed to his border policy wins as president. Under his presidency, the US-Mexico border remained in “great shape”. and was “stronger, safer and more secure” than the current condition. If not for the Democrats’ meddling, the border wall would now be standing guard.
“We ended Catch-and-Release, shut down asylum fraud, and crippled the vicious smugglers, drug dealers, and human traffickers. The Wall, despite horrendous Democratic delays, would have easily been finished by now and is working magnificently. Our country is being destroyed at the Southern border, a terrible thing to see!” he concluded.

President Trump was having a wall put up on the border .The stupid Biden stop it and open the border for all of this helping at the border and the Democratic voted for it to destroy America
It’s just another lie to add to a long list of lies.
The only time Pelosi lies is when she opens her mouth.
we need a government for Americans
I think she is full of shit and need to be impeached
I never understood why Trump administration let Pelosi stay. She is a crazy witch, all about her own agenda. Maybe she has a bit of senility going on?
Problem with Conservative party is they don’t object loudly as the liberals do. I saw it happen thru the Obama days and now again…God help us all.
I agree with Clyde (above) 👏👏👏😂😂🤣🤣

Nancy needs to retire she no longer has a grip on the pulse of things anymore.i knew she was a bitch when she “staged” ripping up trump’s speech.we need to abolish ALL parties,and form 4 new parties to keep 2 parties from holding 90 percent of the power.the dems ARE DESTROYING america.we need to run the Dems out of washington on a rail.
Im visiting my daughter in houston and ive seen lots of homeless people in austin too in my town mcallen texas there are alot of homeless too ..we should help those people first..there were 180 immigrants in a church nearby ..my sister said they trashed the place where the priest had them..they throw trash everywhere some dont care…they think our country owes them something..smh
Anyone who has the least bit of common sense watched and listened to Socialist Democrats over the past few years and still believes what they say, deserves to live in a third-world Country. Sadly, I and my family will suffer along with the half-wits.
Pelosi has got to be the stupidest idiot that has ever been in office. And the rest of the damn democrats and Biden are going to destroy this country.. Its time for a another revolution. Patriot’s it’s time to get off your dead asses and take this country back.
Well the immigration problem has always been a problem, but putting the wall up was a deterrent. Trump was not allowing the mass of immigrants to flood USA, so what’s different? We all know the answer and its Bidden and the democratic party thinking that if they let all these people in, they’ll vote democratic forever.
So where do we house these people, there are 2 properties that are available, 1 in California, at the Pelosi estate, and 1 in Delaware at the Bidden estate, neither be used since there at their 2nd home in the swamp in Washington.
Nancy, Nancy Pelosi’ I have some ice cream for you would you like some ice cream OK I want you to go home and retire and I’ll bring you all the ice cream you want …..

Pelosi is the most ignorant female in office. Biden is senial. Wow we are definitely in trouble as a country. PLEASE bring TRUMP back. And the wall.

When Biden decided to eliminate all of Trumps policies he had set Building a Border wall deporting illegal immigrants which was slowing down illegals from entering the U.S.A.he said this is what I want to he’ll with what the Citizens want I’ll show Trump
Nancy needs to go, alone with ANYONE who has been in Congress over 10 years. Time for term limits! Biden and the liberal Democrats are going to ruin the USA ! California is a disgusting mess, thanks to the Democrats. We are a welfare state, and the illegals here are sucking our state dry. President Trump was and is, the only person with balls to try to get our country back to greatness. And then here comes the idiots, Newsom, (Nancy’s nephew), Harris, Biden to let every immigrant into our country, and let the citizens support them!
