“On the Holmes Front” with Frank Holmes
When Democrats say the crisis at the southern border is “manufactured,” there are just three words House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is hoping voters forget.
The first one is a number: 318,407.
That’s how many illegal immigrants U.S. border patrol agents caught crossing the southern border in January and February alone.
That’s right—more than a quarter of a million people in just two months of the year. That’s twice as many as this time last year, with no let up in sight.
It’s so bad that the feds nabbed more illegals coming into the U.S. in February than any month in the last 12 years.
The border is absolutely out of control.
At that rate, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen predicts about 900,000 illegal aliens will enter the United States this year alone—but the numbers get worse yet.
Trying to process nearly a million illegals “will overwhelm the system.”
“This is not a manufactured crisis,” Nielsen tells Congress. “This is truly an emergency.”
Many of the illegals who are coming are an emergency themselves. Three-times as many illegals needed medical treatment, for diseases like the mumps.
It’s a crisis, but you can’t appreciate it until you know the full size.
That brings us to the second word you have to remember when dealing with border crisis denialists is: You.
You Democrats manufactured the border crisis. Here’s how.
That number—318,407—is more than all the illegal immigrants who tried to cross the border in Trump’s entire first year in office, fiscal year 2017, when crossings hit a 45-year low of 310,531.
But then the Democrats started to hit their stride.
Trump separated illegal immigrant children from people pretending to be their parents. These were coyotes, drug dealers—some of them even molested the children they pretended to be traveling with.
But Pelosi said Trump was something like a Nazi who was putting “children in cages.”
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., claimed that Trump caused the poor children “trauma.”
Our nation’s top doctors say family separation causes severe emotional distress. Children separated from their families have suffered enough trauma and must be reunited no later than today’s court-ordered deadline. No more excuses @realDonaldTrump. #FamiliesBelongTogether https://t.co/CUZLpXoWzX

Rresidential candidate Kamala Harris, D-Calif., tweeted just this week about freeing every “infant” from ICE custody.
Let's keep speaking out until every single infant is out of detention in Texas and elsewhere. This cannot be who we are as a country.https://t.co/yWNHRPvV6I

They got Trump to walk back his successful policies because of PR.
Fake News plastered the story all over the media, and eventually it hit the countries called the “Northern Triangle”: Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.
“It’s well-known at this time that adults with children will not be detained during the immigration proceedings for illegal entry,” the Border Patrol operations chief told Congress. “The word of mouth and social media quickly gets back to those in the Northern Triangle countries, that if you bring a child you’ll be successful.”
Guess what happened next?
Starting last October, 65% of illegals crossing the borders pretended to be families.
“The number of family units caught in February 2019 exceeds all illegals apprehended in February 2018,” wrote journalist R. Kirk Cortwood in The New American.
The Democrats told them it was their open sesame.
The Democrats also said we didn’t need to worry about caravans.

Guess what happened?
U.S. Customs and Border Patrol expects to catch twice as many illegals traveling in caravans—like the ones Democrats told Trump to ignore.
Don’t misunderstand: The open border with Mexico is a bipartisan issue.
After all, Republicans in the last Congress stopped Donald Trump from funding the wall with Mexico.
But now with Pelosi running the House and Schumer bottling up spending in the Senate, illegals know Trump will never get another penny for border security—not without declaring a national emergency and making it happen.
That’s just what leftists are counting on in their plot to abolish historical America and turn it into a replica of California or New York City.

If illegals come across at this rate with an immigration patriot like Donald Trump as president, just imagine what would happen with another liberal Democrat in the White House.
There are already 22 million illegal aliens in the United States, according to researchers from Yale and MIT.
42 million people would come to America if they could, according to Gallup, and five million illegals plan to come to the U.S. in the next year alone.
And that’s just Latin America and the Caribbean. Every year, border patrol agents stopped illegals from more and more countries around the world.
America’s highways are swelling, the schools are crowding out English-speaking students, emergency rooms are bankrupting hospitals—and Democrats are rubbing their hands for the day they can give these people amnesty.

That will guarantee Democratic control of America for a generation.
That brings us to the third word you have to remember when you think about the border crisis: Vote.
Because if you don’t vote, this is just the tip of the iceberg.
