Democrats reveal themselves

In Congress yesterday, Democrats defeated a motion by Republicans that would not allow illegals the right to vote. It was defeated 228-197. Compare that to how Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and her testimony was treated by the Democrats. Not only is there a huge increase in the amount of apprehensions (76,000 in February, which if it continues, 1 million by year’s end), illegal drugs, etc., the total denial of reality continues.

In 2014, Obama declared a crisis at the border. Democrats agreed then but they don’t now. By killing this motion and ignoring the crisis-now-disaster at the border, they have exposed themselves as the party of open borders and illegal voting. Do they really think the majority of Americans agree with them?
