For the last week, our media has been parroting Democrat talking points and saying there is no crisis at the border. But things were very different back in 2014 when Obama used the term.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Media had no problem calling it a border ‘crisis’ in 2014 under Obama
Both Democrats and most news media are yelling as often as they can that there is no border “crisis,” even though they spent the last year telling everyone there was and even though they had no problem explicitly calling it a “crisis” in 2014, when the situation was the exact same as it is now.
“We now have an actual humanitarian crisis on the borer that only underscores the need to drop the politics and fix our immigration system once and for all,” then-President Barack Obama said in the Rose Garden in 2014. “In recent weeks we’ve seen a surge of unaccompanied children arrive at the border, brought here and to other countries by smugglers and traffickers.”
This is no different than what President Trump said from the Oval Office on Tuesday…
The Washington Post on July 12, 2014, referred to “the current crisis on the Southwest border, where authorities have apprehended tens of thousands of unaccompanied Central American children since October …” The story’s lead author was Karen Tumulty, now a columnist for the Post, who completely dismissed the idea of any crisis at the border this week.
The article goes on to offer another example from the New York Times.
And here’s a video of Obama explicitly using the term border crisis:
Again and again, our media proves they are nothing more than advocates for the Democrats.
