Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) took Congressional Democrats to task over their lies regarding the national emergency at the U.S. southern border, which they have allowed to worsen in order to blame the crisis on President Donald Trump.
Gaetz played a clip on a loop of House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) laughing off the notion of a humanitarian crisis at the border while being asked about it in an interview from January before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-PA) issued a point of order suggesting Gaetz repeating the “out of context” clip was inappropriate. She was informed by the parliamentarian that he was not out of order.
“I just think that’s quite something when you’re fed back your own words from your own leadership from earlier this year, you think that’s out of context and inappropriate and not allowed,” Gaetz said referring to the clip.
“Again, we didn’t raise the issue. It was the gentlelady from Texas that said these allegations from Republicans that we were in denial, they’re offensive, we’ve always known of the crisis, and the Democratic whip laughed,” Gaetz continued.
Clyburn was not the only Congressional Democratic leader who denied the reality of the crisis at the U.S. southern border. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) did so as well.
“Most presidents have used Oval Office addresses for noble purposes,” Schumer said in January. “This president just used the backdrop of the Oval Office to manufacture a crisis, stoke fear, and divert attention from the turmoil in his administration.”
Sen. Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren (D-MA) denied the order crisis as well while it was unfolding, only to virtue-signal and blame Trump when it became politically convenient for her to do so.

Gaetz made note that the Trump administration has been sounding the alarm bells the entire time.
“You know who doesn’t think it’s funny? The Trump administration, because [Acting United States Secretary of Homeland Security] Secretary [Kevin] McAleenan has been ringing the warning bell for months about the crisis. He begged you all to take action more quickly,” Gaetz said.
“It should be very clear from these numbers that we ‘re facing alarming trends and a rising volume of people illegally crossing our southwest border, or arriving at our ports of entry without documents,” McAleenan said back in March. “The system is well beyond capacity and remains at the breaking point.”
Democrats have ignored the warnings from the Trump administration, instead choosing to play politics with the issue of border security with U.S. communities and migrant children suffering mightily as a result.
“One of the reasons why so many young people, so many vulnerable people are in tragic conditions is because we didn’t act when the administration wanted us to provide funding that was absolutely necessary to care for people,” Gaetz explained.
“It wasn’t the Republicans that were in denial. It was all of you, and it was in your own words from your own leadership. Be offended with the Democratic whip, not the House Republicans,” Gaetz concluded.
The smack down can be seen in its full context here:
Dems, when they’re fed back their own words, from their own leadership, from earlier this year, they think it’s inappropriate!@WhipClyburn laughed at the crisis on our border. Thought it was funny. You know who doesn’t think it’s funny? The @realDonaldTrump administration. pic.twitter.com/LmC0WgIHsU

New Migrant ‘Caravan’ Sets Off From Honduras, Could Arrive At US-Mexico Border Around Election Day
Are they hoping for a post-election amnesty?
A new migrant “caravan” departed the city of San Pedro Sula in Honduras on Wednesday, hoping to reach the United States in the coming weeks.
CBS News has reported that some in Central America have promoted the idea of a new caravan on social media recently. The group had been slated to leave on October 1, but travelers carrying knapsacks and minimal supplies left the staging grounds for the caravan on Wednesday night.
Initial reports indicate that 900 prospective migrants have joined the caravan. The formations have historically grown as the large groups travel through Guatemala and Mexico, although they usually taper off in size before the travelers reach the US-Mexico border.
The ‘caravan’ phenomenon reached its peak in 2018, when formations of hopeful migrants of up to 10,000 were traveling through Mexico in hopes of reaching the United States. The introduction of the Trump administration’s ‘Stay-in-Mexico’ policy has proved integral to deterring the phenomenon, requiring those who seek asylum in the country to wait in Mexico while their application is processed.
This caravan appears to be the first of its kind since the 2018 rush of caravans, and its timing is rather conspicuous. The migrants may very well arrive in the vicinity of the US-Mexico border near election day, and some may be under the impression that a tentative President-elect Joe Biden would grant them generous residence and asylum privileges.
Illegal immigration has begun to surge in recent weeks and months as an implication of the global coronavirus recession in Mexico and Central America, and the new group represents a potent health risk to those traveling within it, as well as to citizens of Guatemala, Mexico and the United States present where it is intending to travel.
They may very well be right. Biden has pledged not to deport anyone except illegal aliens who commit felonies(other than immigration violations) in the United States. This would represent a destruction of American immigration enforcement, and the caravan migrants seem only to be taking him for his word in assuming they’ll be allowed into the country.
