It’s time to put a halt to AOC’s intellectual dishonesty. I figure that the best way to do that is to engage LFR visitors in a little thought experiment on immigration. Specifically, the thought experiment applies mostly to illegal immigration.

History shows that there weren’t any claims of guards telling women to drink from toilets prior to AOC’s visit. That directs us to a binary decision. One option is that the illegal aliens held at one of these facilities felt so threatened that they never told anyone about their mistreatment. The other option is that illegal aliens weren’t mistreated prior to AOC’s visit.

It’s difficult to imagine large numbers of people being held in these facilities saying nothing, especially after they’ve been processed. Also, it’s difficult to imagine a person drinking from a toilet and not getting some sort of life-threatening illness. Let’s remember that these illegal aliens often have travelled hundreds of miles through hot temperatures. Further, it’s rare that many illegal aliens had the basics for making the trip.

Why would anyone think that there wouldn’t be more deaths in custody considering the conditions? That points us to the second option. If deaths in custody are this rare, why wouldn’t we think that the CBP agents act with professionalism and thoughtfulness?

Further, the thought of a self-aggrandizing politician lying about what she saw isn’t exactly beyond the realm of possibilities. Additionally, what corroboration do we have of AOC’s claims?

AOC’s statements work against AOC’s credibility. Check this out:

Notice that she said “There’s abuse. This is them on their best behavior and they put them in a room with no running water. And these women were being told by CBP officers to drink out of the toilet.” I can’t wait to hear a reporter ask AOC how women being held in a room with no running water could drink out of a toilet. This seems logical to ask since facilities need running water to operate a toilet.

The fact that reporters haven’t asked her about that glaring contradiction suggests that AOC knows that she can lie through her teeth without the media questioning her honesty. Being a media-savvy person, why wouldn’t AOC think she could lie and get away with it?

There’s a daunting possibility that the problem isn’t with CBP and ICE but with House Democrats. Once the word spread that Democrats weren’t serious about enforcing the borders, the floodgates opened in Central America. When each of the Democrats’ presidential candidates raised their hands in favor of decriminalizing illegal immigration. Put differently, everything points to Democrats being the problem, not CBP and ICE.

Jeh Johnson opposes decriminalization:

That is tantamount to declaring publicly that we have open borders,” Johnson told the Washington Post. “That is unworkable, unwise and does not have the support of a majority of American people or the Congress, and if we had such a policy, instead of 100,000 apprehensions a month, it will be multiples of that.”

It’s clear that Democrats won’t budge from this position. Further, it’s clear that we have a legitimate crisis on our hands. Therefore, the only way to resolve this issue is to throw out 50-60 Democrats in the House, then strengthen Mitch McConnell’s majority in the Senate and re-electing President Trump.

I’m not saying that Republicans are perfect about fixing the immigration problem. I’m saying that they’re the only ones who seem serious about fixing that crisis.
