Newly Elected House Speaker Nancy Pelsoi attended the White House Border-Crisis meeting Wednesday where she met with DHS secretary
Kirstjen Nielsen. Secretary Nielsen presented Speaker Pelosi with some very troubling stats. According to Nielsen, there is a major crisis happening down on our Southern border. U.S.-Mexico border had apprehended about 3,000 people with terrorist ties and 17,000 criminals last year Nielsen told Pelosi.
17,000 criminals with 3,000 being tied to terrorism. How can anyone shrug that off? 3,000 terrorist tried to get into our nation & the speaker of the house doesn’t care? There has to be something wrong if you believe everything is going to be okay. Middle Eastern Terrorist have tried to get into our country through our southern borders more than just a few times. Reports years back that ISIS was trying to cross the border illegally to meet up with American terrorist cells all over the Midwest.
At one point during the meeting, according to the Wall Street Journal, Pelosi interrupted Nielsen, who was citing statistics related to the border, including how many criminal illegal immigrants attempted to enter the U.S. last year.Fox News
“I reject your facts,” Pelosi told Nielsen
“These aren’t my facts,” Nielsen shot back. “These are the facts.”
“These aren’t my facts…. “These are the facts.”

Secretary Nielsen took to twitter to express her disappointment
The crisis is not going away-it is getting worse. The status quo in funding & authorities for #DHS is irresponsible & makes our country less secure. Kicking the can down the road is not the answer. I look forward to engaging w Members who want to listen & be part of the solution.— Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen (@SecNielsen) January 3, 2019
When shown the facts, Speaker Pelosi just didn’t give a rats ass what the facts were. She’s more focused on making sure the President doesn’t do the job he was hired to do. “Resist” has been the Democrats motto for the last two years. Nothing is being accomplished with Bi-partisan support due to the “resist” movement.
