As the immigration crisis intensifies, the White House continues to claim that the border is more secure than ever. Either they are all delusional or they think we are, because any thinking person knows full well that the border is anything but secure.
The White House is standing by a statement on its website claiming that border security is at its strongest in history even in the face of a spiraling border crisis in Texas.
Under the heading “border security” on the White House website’s section on President Obama’s immigration proposal, the whitehouse.gov website gives the president credit for having “doubled the number of Border Patrol agents,” saying “today border security is stronger than it ever has been.”
The White House says the statement is true despite the estimated 52,000 unattended children who have crossed the southwest border so far this year and the roughly 90,000 expected by fall.“Looking at the overall picture of the border, the Border Patrol is better staffed today than at any time in history,” White House deputy press secretary Shawn Turner told the Washington Examiner.
