Not Exactly News: Democrats Are Lying

Posted on | June 4, 2018 | Comments Off on Not Exactly News: Democrats Are Lying

Honestly, I can’t be bothered to notice every time a Democrat tells a lie. Every single word they say is false. You’ll catch an Orthodox rabbi eating bacon before you’ll ever hear a Democrat telling the truth. Sometimes, however, I feel the need to remind you how dishonest they are:

A Democratic senator is accusing the Trump administration of being part of a “cruel” effort against unauthorized immigrant children after he was denied entry to a Texas immigration center for unaccompanied minors when he showed up asking for a tour of the facility.
Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley — who acknowledged that he had been told in advance he wouldn’t be admitted to the facility — told CNN’s “New Day” Monday morning that he believes President Donald Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Department of Homeland Security “do not want members of Congress or the public to know what’s going on” in the center.
“It’s damaging to children, putting them through a horrific experience in a land where they know no one and they don’t know where they’re being sent and don’t understand why they’re being sent just as a way to be, if you will, cruel as a strategy of deterrence, not deterrence from people crossing the border, deterrence from people seeking asylum,” Merkley said.

The White House just emailed me the following statement from Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley:

“Senator Merkley is irresponsibly spreading blatant lies about routine immigration enforcement while smearing hardworking, dedicated law enforcement officials at ICE and CBP. He voted against closing the ‘catch-and-release’ loopholes used by child smugglers, and his reckless open borders policies are responsible for the permanent separation of thousands of American families who have been forced to bury their loved ones. No one is taking a public safety lecture from Sen. Merkley, whose own policies endanger children, empower human smugglers and drug cartels, and allow violent criminal aliens to flood into American communities.”

In other words, Jeff Merkley is a liar. He is dishonestly complaining about a problem created by policies that Democrats support, and he opposes good-faith efforts by Republicans to solve this problem.
