The incoming Democratic Caucus Chair denied on MSNBC Saturday that a wall would make America safer.
“We [Democrats] are not going to allow the American people to be held hostage to a $5 billion, or somewhere south of that, ransom note in order to build a ridiculous border wall that’s not going to make anyone safe,” said Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.).
The quote on MSNBC’s program “Up” came in the context of a discussion about whiny federal government employees who have been furloughed and have not been paid. To be sure, they will be back-paid when the shutdown ends, and are currently on what is the equivalent of a free paid vacation. But the mainstream press has neglected to mention that fact because they want President Donald J. Trump to look like an evil monster who is denying ordinary people their paychecks.
The only government employees who are furloughed are considered “non-essential,” and should be thankful to be employed in the first place, considering that they are paid with our tax dollars and that there is no such thing as a “non-essential employee” in the private sector. Forgive those of us with brains for not sympathizing with these whiny, overpaid bureaucrats.
Jeffries also said that Trump’s demand for funding for a border wall was a “presidential temper tantrum” and a “fifth century solution to a 21st century problem,” both lines obviously fed to him by Democratic consultants and strategists. He also claimed that “every expert says” that a border wall will not keep Americans safe. Apparently Jeffries does not consider Border Patrol agents, who work on the border every day and overwhelmingly support building a wall, to be experts. As usual, the “experts” are not the ordinary people with firsthand knowledge of the issue, but rather some faceless elite D.C. think-tankers who have never been west of I-95.
Of course, Jeffries offered no real solution that would keep Americans – like police Cpl. Ronil Singh, shot and killed last week by an illegal – safe. Instead, he offered the typical do-nothing empty platitudes that politicians always offer.
“We have a broken immigration system. We need to strengthen it. We need to do it in a bipartisan way. We’re willing to provide increased funding for things like enhanced fencing, technology, drones, satellites, things that the experts have said will make the border safe. We also have to make the border more humane, and Democrats want to proceed in a fashion that does both,” he said.
LOL: Ignorant Blue Checks on Twitter Get Confused After President Trump’s Remark That ‘Coyotes’ are Smuggling Children Across the Border
These people know nothing that is true.
After President Donald Trump remarked that “coyotes” are smuggling children across the U.S. southern border in yesterday’s presidential debate, verified liberals on Twitter demonstrated their extreme ignorance when it comes to the immigration issue.
Some of the low lights from these clueless Democrats can be seen here:
Tonight on blue checkmark twitter, they don’t know what coyotes are.

Alleged high school shooting victim and gun control spokesman David Hogg showed his lack of basic intelligence on the issue as well:
Imagine calling the immigrant parents that bring their children to the United States for a better life “Coyotes”
The level of xenophobia is sickening.

The incredible ignorance from the Left on the true nature of illegal immigration has resulted in their support for some of the most ghastly and inhumane policies imaginable.
Big League Politics reported on how CBS News painted human traffickers in a positive light because they were flooding the border as part of a planned and well-financed migrant caravan last year:
The Darién Gap, a undeveloped jungle swampland connecting North and South America at the border of Panama and Colombia, is said to be one of the most dangerous places in the Americas. It’s largely overrun by human smugglers, paramilitary organizations, and drug traffickers, and the U.S State Department advises Americans not to travel to the region.
The region’s criminal reputation didn’t stop CBS News from running a sympathetic profile of some of the human smugglers operating in the area on Saturday. CBS’s portrayal of a ‘coyote’ named Emerson Gonzalez Jimenez was unquestioning of his claims that he was offering a generous service to the migrants who sought passage through the Darien Gap to Panama, usually on the way to the United States.
Colombians, Venezuelans, Haitians and even individuals from Asia or Africa commonly hire the services of the smugglers to navigate through the dangerous region. It’s not uncommon for migrants to die during the often-perilous journey, as the Gap poses a threat on account of its wild nature and the criminals known to operate within it.
A Marxist terrorist organization known as FARC, the Spanish-language synonym for Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, has extensively operated in the area. FARC has trafficked and sold a great deal of cocaine destined for the United States, in addition to waging a violent insurgency against the government of Colombia.
The crossing of often helpless and penniless migrants through the Darién Gap poses a humanitarian concern. Migrants are largely powerless at the hands of the coyotes guiding them, and can be easily exploited. Female migrants are often raped or forced into prostitution by smugglers.
Closing the borders would not only keep Americans safe, but it would also stop human trafficking networks from smuggling exploited children across the border.
