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.

Over 200 Illegal Aliens Arrested in Bust of Human Smuggling Operation in Laredo, Texas
More than 200 illegal aliens were transferred to the custody of Customs and Border Patrol last week, with the wave of arrests coming as authorities moved upon a human smuggling ring operating in the Laredo, Texas area.
Border Patrol agents most recently recounted finding 25 people hiding within a horse trailer at an immigration checkpoint on Thursday. They’ve encountered other smuggling attempts with the use of commercial tractor-trailers, box trucks, agriculture and fuel containers, and a travel trailer. CBP has reported making 242 arrests last week alone, a figure not seen since before the coronavirus pandemic.
At least two of the men arrested by CBP for attempting to unlawfully enter the country have outstanding arrest warrants for sex crimes in the United States, one of which is said to have targeted a minor. Both of these suspects are currently facing extradition proceedings for their alleged crimes.
The south Texas city appears to have become a hub for cartel-affiliated human smuggling, which has resumed in force following a lull during the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. CBP and the Webb County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant on a human smuggling stash house in the city last month, in which 47 illegal aliens were being stashed.
The freeze on illegal immigration that resulted from the coronavirus pandemic appears to largely be over, with criminal smuggling groups now once again attempting to move large groups of unlawful aliens into the United States. It’s very likely that smuggling organizations will attempt to move their customers across the southern border in a greatly increased capacity if Joe Biden is inaugurated in January. The Democrat candidate has already confirmed he only intends to deport illegal aliens who are convicted of a violent felony, which would largely abandon the enforcement of American immigration law.
