CNN reporter John King just set the record straight about the crisis at the southern border. It is true that our immigration system has always had issues that occasionally flared up.
But the geniuses in Washington never could get their act together. That is why now, due to multiple factors, we have an unprecedented crisis on our southern border.
So far the Democrats and mainstream media did nothing except blame President Trump for the crisis. But today, John King set the record straight on CNN.
The Daily Caller reported that CNN’s John King took time Tuesday to note that problems at the southern border did not start with President Trump.
The Dems have criticized President Trump and his administration for its immigration policies, as well as the treatment of immigrants at the southern border. John King said the U.S. faced many of the same problems under the Obama administration.
“This particular issue is not new,” King said. “This has been a problem the U.S. government has had to figure out a solution to for a long time.”
King then replayed an interview that former President Obama did with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, where Obama issued a warning to immigrant families not to send their children “unaccompanied” to the U.S.
“That is five years ago this very week. That’s five years ago this very week, in the sense that, again, there’s a current divide. The current president evokes emotions among Democrats.” King said.
“A lot of progressives weren’t happy with that president, President Obama. They called him the ‘deporter-in-chief.’” He added. “But this issue has been unresolved, different pieces of it, for 20 plus years about unaccompanied children. That’s a clip from five years ago this week. When? How?”
