Although it felt like fingernails running across a chalkboard, I still listened to Dick Durbin’s spin about the Democrats’ trip to the US-Mexico border. Durbin tweeted out a message that essentially said that Trump is a racist for enforcing US immigration laws. Specifically, Durbin said “Just got done with my trip to the southern border in McAllen, TX. Our immigration system is broken. You can’t walk into these facilities, see these children, and believe that this situation is acceptable. America is better than this.”

Like Sen. Schumer, Durbin didn’t mention a thing about tightening the asylum laws, closing immigration loopholes or fixing the Flores decision. Neither man mentioned building a physical structure to funnel drug cartels or human traffickers into chokepoints. Everything these men said focused exclusively on the conditions for the children.

What these Democrats didn’t talk about spoke louder than the things these Democrats did talk about. Here’s Durbin’s tweet:


What chutzpah from Sen. Durbin. President Trump first told Democrats that there was a crisis on the border before the midterm elections. Back then, Democrats called it a “manufactured crisis.” CNN joined in to sing from the Democrats’ spin hymnal. Ditto with MSNBC. Kirstjen Nielsen testified before Congress that Homeland Security was at a breaking point. The day after Christmas, 2018, she re-iterated that point in this article:

Declaring the U.S. immigration system had been “pushed to a breaking point by those who seek open borders,” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Wednesday ordered mandatory medical checks on all children under the age of 10 in U.S. custody and said she would send U.S. Coast Guard medical personnel to the border to help. Nielsen said she also planned to visit the border later this week to see “first-hand” how medical screenings were handled.

Apparently, Democrats didn’t give a damn one way or the other about “the children.” Apparently, Democrats didn’t start caring until it reached a political tipping point. The Democrats’ phony solution to everything that’s happening on the border is nothing more than treating symptoms. Caring for children in custody is the right thing to do but that’s treating a symptom. In this post, I noted Sen. Schumer’s ‘solution’ to the border crisis:

We must pass our bill to help end it—the Stop Cruelty to Migrant Children Act.

I don’t know who’s worse between Sen. Schumer or Sen. Durbin. Neither of them paid attention to the crisis until a month ago. These Democrats ridiculed President Trump, who correctly identified the crisis months ago. Then again, Sen. Durbin has a history of criticizing law enforcement and the military. Here’s an oldie but goodie:

A US senator has refused to apologize for comparing the actions of US soldiers at Guantanamo Bay to those of Nazis, while others have decried or defended the mandate and method used to hold prisoners there.

“If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime – Pol Pot or others – that had no concern for human beings.”

That’s what Sen. Durbin said about our military guarding terrorists in Gitmo. That’s what a Democrat dirtbag sounds like.

Don’t mistake the Democrats’ calls for helping the children as actual empathy. Always remember my old saying about Democrats. If you’ve forgotten, it goes like this: Democrats will always do the right thing … when it’s the last option left.

That’s the definition of a dirtbag politician.
