Trump calls wall only solution to ‘growing humanitarian crisis’ at border

“President Trump delivered a forceful and fact-challenged televised plea to the nation Tuesday night for his long-promised border wall, declaring “a growing humanitarian and security crisis” at the southern border…. ” [Philip Rucker and Felicia Sonmez] https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-declares-a-growing-humanitarian-crisis-at-the-border-in-demand-for-wall-funding-to-end-shutdown/2019/01/08/bdd2767e-1368-11e9-803c-4ef28312c8b9_story.html?utm_term=.49497dd15a4f

Trump is a lying piece of garbage. Immigrants commit fewer crimes than other residents. That’s true of both legal and illegal immigrants.

Also, in a sane universe, the response to a “growing humanitarian crisis” is sending food, shelter, and medical aid. If you’re a piece of garbage like Trump, you want to build a wall so people can suffer elsewhere, and so you and your criminal cronies can make profit from the contracting fees.

A normal person sees a suffering child and wants to mitigate that suffering. Trump sees a suffering child, takes that child from their parents, and puts the child in a cage. Because they’re profit in being a cage contractor.
