Today, Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked if Democrats were now willing to say there was a crisis at the southern border. Her response: “We have never not said there is a crisis…”
Months of public statements from leading House Democrats show just how false that is:
“A crisis that does not exist.” – Speaker Nancy Pelosi & Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer
“There is no crisis.” – Majority Leader Steny Hoyer
“There is no crisis on the border.” – House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler
“I’m from the border, there’s no crisis there.” – Rep. Henry Cuellar
Bottom line: House Democrats spent months trying to convince the American people there was no crisis at the border. Now, even as they try to backtrack on those claims when all evidence shows their previous assertions were wrong, they’re still refusing to work with Republicans to solve the problem.
