There are two real takeaways from the discussion on yesterday’s The Five when they tackled the topic of illegal immigrants dropping their children over an 18-foot wall in order to get into the United States. The first is the obvious one – we need better border security, including better walls. Second, leftists like Juan Williams pretend like they don’t see the obvious in order to protect their ideology.
The whole thing is a joke right now. Every major study in the United States and across the globe has concluded that walls and proper border security dramatically influence the flow of illegal border crossings. This is indisputable. The current talking point for Democrats is that it’s a waste of money. No, seriously. That’s the story they’re going with right now and it’s pitiful.
It would be better if the left just came out and said they are against the border wall because President Trump is for it. If a Democrat from a border area like California suggested a wall, many on the left would probably agree. Maybe not.
