The grandstanding Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) made a propaganda tour to our southern border with some of his Democrat lawmaker friends. He wasn’t there on a humanitarian mission, he was there in an attempt to make President Trump look bad for the humanitarian crisis the Democrats created by fighting him tooth and nail on funding for a border wall. Schumer was also to assure their hard-left base and big open-borders donors like George Soros and the Koch brothers that they’re looking out for the best interests of the illegal aliens.
We just landed in Texas. The conditions at the border for children and families have been inhumane. And I’m leading a delegation of @SenateDems to investigate, inspect, and evaluate conditions for migrants at facilities on the southern border. pic.twitter.com/mfn5ZSMKpx

Schumer talked to the media, where he expressed his outrage over the treatment of immigrants in the overcrowded detention facilities on our southern border. In his press conference, Schumer blamed President Trump directly for the “inhumane” treatment of illegal aliens in our detention centers.

In a tweet responding to the showboating Democrat leader and his feigned outrage over illegal immigrants and asylum seekers being held in cages, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) reminded him that in fact, the cages he’s criticizing were built to house immigrants during Obama’s two terms in office.
Democrats are outraged about "cages" at border detention facilities. But guess who built EVERY SINGLE ONE: President Obama.
Enough of the politics. Let's secure the border and fix the problem.

Funny, that Senator Schumer never mentions the 2015 class-action lawsuit filed by the ACLU, the American Immigration Council and others against the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) detention facilities in Barack Obama’s seventh year as our President of the United States. The 2015 lawsuit alleged that Tucson Sector Border Patrol holds men, women, and children in freezing, overcrowded, and filthy cells for days at a time in violation of the U.S. Constitution. Detained individuals are stripped of outer layers of clothing and forced to suffer in brutally cold temperatures; deprived of beds, bedding, and sleep; denied adequate food, water, medicine and medical care, and basic sanitation and hygiene items such as soap, sufficient toilet paper, sanitary napkins, diapers, and showers; and held virtually incommunicado in these conditions for days.
According to the lawsuit, the Obama administration held migrants in wretched, inhumane condition. The lawsuit specifically mentions children being held in these conditions:
The American Immigration Council published photos of the conditions in the Obama-era facilities. The images show dozens of illegal immigrants being held in crowded, filthy cells. There are no beds or mats for sleeping, with many of the migrants sleeping on a packed floor in a head-to-toe arrangement. Other images show mothers changing the diapers of their children on the cold concrete floor. Others show garbage piling up in the cells. Many images picture children living in these conditions.
Conservative pundit Bill Mitchell also blasted the hypocrisy of Schumer, who along with Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (CA) vowed to never give President Trump a dime for his border wall.
If you had funded the wall, none of this would be happening you preening jackass.

As a reminder…
In December 2018, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer boldly proclaimed that President Trump will not get a dime from Democrats to fund a wall that would stop the immigration crisis on our southern border.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) said on Sunday that President Donald Trump will not get funding for his proposed border wall.
“President Trump should understand there are not the votes for the wall in the House or the Senate,” Schumer told “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd. “He is not going to get the wall in any form.”
President Trump responded to Senator Schumer’s comment in a tweet, saying:
“Anytime you hear a Democrat saying that you can have good Border Security without a Wall, write them off as just another politician following the party line. Time for us to save billions of dollars a year and have, at the same time, far greater safety and control!”

How many of these men behind the “inhumane” cages raped women or children on their way to America? How many of them come to the United States with criminal records? How many of them have been deported for crimes they’ve committed in the United States and are attempting to make their way back into our country with the aid of a kid they’re using as a prop?
What do you think about Schumer and his Democrat lawmaker friend’s trip to our southern border? Do you wonder why they never made the trip to our border when Obama was president? Tell us what you think about the Democrats propaganda tour in the comment section below.
