WATCH: Pelosi Says Insistence on Border Wall ‘Luxury The Country Can No Longer Afford’

Americans dying at the hands of illegal aliens is the “luxury the country can no longer afford.”

Thursday morning, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) insisted that President Donald J. Trump’s insistence on a border wall is a “luxury” and that America can no longer afford to tussle over it.

In her traditionally-incoherent rambling style, Pelosi delivered the following remarks at a press conference, invoking the anecdotes of federal employees inconvenienced by the partial government shutdown:

“I’m concerned about people not having paychecks in their homes. Have you heard the stories of people? Young woman who [inaudible] newlywed, who came home, she was sick, she’s diabetic, she had three vials left, she didn’t know what she was going to do. She thought hopefully the government would open again, it didn’t so she’s not taking insulin that she needed for her diabetes, and she even said sometimes when she went to sleep she thought it would be easier not to wake up, because she didn’t take her medicine, than to face the fact that she wasn’t having a paycheck and couldn’t afford her medicine. The father who had a child who was born and needed an operation, but couldn’t, um, get onto the health insurance program because government was shut down – the list goes on and on. That’s the heat that we want to lower. The heat and the lives of the American people. To convey – [inaudible] – the story storm that is going on all over the country, and we want to convey the reality of this cruel policy and the lives of these workers. And it’s not just – although that’s a stunning number – 800,000, we care about that statistic. But we care about each and every family that is affected, and it goes beyond those employees into our economy. The economists – even the President’s own people are saying that, uh, that GDP will not grow as long as this, uh, um, shutdown is there and that means that the President’s insistence, is, um, a luxury – insistence on the wall is a luxury the country no longer can afford.

You know what the country can no longer afford? Tens of thousands of horrific crimes – including murder and child rape – committed by illegal aliens who should not be in this country in the first place. Does Pelosi think she has the moral high ground by calling the President’s furlough of “non-essential” government personnel “cruel?” Cruel is allowing Americans to die at the hands of illegals. Cruel is refusing to face the families of Americans killed by illegals – whom she has sworn to protect – as Pelosi did this week.

President Trump is Deporting Unaccompanied Illegal Alien Minors to Prevent Spread of Coronavirus

Left-wing groups are agitating to stop the President from deporting these illegals.

Trump 24 Million Democrats

President Donald Trump has started deporting unaccompanied minors found trying to illegally cross the U.S. border in order to stop the spread of coronavirus, and liberals are enraged as a result.

The administration is enforcing a March 20 order issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which states that no unauthorized individual could cross the border during the coronavirus pandemic.

The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has confirmed that the CDC policy is being applied to migrant children at the border, according to BuzzFeed News.

“All aliens CBP encounters may be subject to the CDC’s Order Suspending Introduction Of Persons From A Country Where A Communicable Disease Exists (March 20, 2020), including minors,” a CBP official told BuzzFeed News in a statement.

“When minors are encountered without adult family members, CBP works closely with their home countries to transfer them to the custody of government officials and reunite them with their families quickly and safely, if possible,” they added.

Left-wing activists who support the migrant trafficking industry are up in arms that the Trump administration is actually enforcing the law and putting Americans first during an unprecedented pandemic.

“Children arriving at the border, many of whom have endured unimaginable harm at home and on their journey, are the most vulnerable group encountered by border officials. Unaccompanied children are particularly vulnerable to trafficking,” said Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, a policy analyst at the American Immigration Council. “The answer to coronavirus cannot be to put children in harm’s way.”

Eleanor Acer, who works as the refugee protection director for Human Rights First, said that the Trump administration is “using” the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse “to advance their long-standing goal of overturning US laws protecting vulnerable children and people seeking asylum.”

During the crisis, the number of referrals for unaccompanied minors who arrive illegally into the U.S. has dropped precipitously. Referrals from Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have dropped 78 percent over the past month, with only four unaccompanied minor aliens being funneled toward the US refugee agency on Sunday.

“This is a drastic drop in referrals, especially compared to 2019, when well over a hundred unaccompanied children were referred to ORR each day,” said Sarah Pierce, an analyst with the Migration Policy Institute.

“While it likely reflects decreased arrivals at the southern border, it also suggests that many are being refused entry, in direct contravention of federal law,” she added.

The administration’s opponents claim that the President is not following the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA), a law that was signed by former President George W. Bush in 2008 that allows illegals to flood the border.

“Reports that DHS is not following the TVPRA are deeply troubling,” wrote Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Dick Durbin (D-IL), along with Reps. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), in a letter issued to acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf.

“We have an obligation to ensure the health and safety of these children. Children do not have to be put in harm’s way to protect us from the coronavirus pandemic. DHS has the ability and capacity to protect both these children and the public. We request that DHS stop this practice immediately,” they added.

Even during a coronavirus crisis, the far-left Democrats are still refusing to shut down the border even if it means the pandemic will worsen as a direct result.
