WH Chief of Staff Claims ‘Mexico Has Done More’ Than Democrats to Prevent Illegal Immigration Into the US

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney clocked Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her fellow Democrats for their inaction on the border crisis, claiming that Mexico has “done more” than Democrats to prevent illegal immigration into the United States.

During an interview on “Fox News Sunday” with Bill Hemmer, Mulvaney explained that Mexico has stepped up to help restrain the flow of migrants from Central America into the United States by attempting to throw up some roadblocks on their passage through the country.

Mulvaney claimed that the steps taken in the past week suggest more effort from Mexico than Democrats to prevent the migrant flow at the southern border.

Watch Mulvaney’s interview:

“In the last week, Mexico really has stepped it up for the very first time. They’re preventing people from coming in on their own southern border down towards Guatemala and Honduras and they’re also acceptign more of the folks that cross into the United States back into Mexico. In fact — and I know it’s hard to imagine — but again, Nancy Pelosi runs the Democrats in Congress. Mexico has done more in the last week to help our illegal immigration crisis than Nancy Pelosi and Democrats in the House.”

Mulvaney explained that immigration has been President Donald Trump’s “number one” issue since entering the White House, despite resistance from Democrats after they gained control of the House at the start of the year.

According to Mulvaney, the president cares about other issues, but the security of the country must come before addressing issues like health care.

Watch:

“This is his number one priority. Keep in mind, dealing with health care is nice, dealing with the economy is nice. The president’s first responsibility is to defend the integrity and safety of the nation. And we really do believe — and I think, again, most folks are starting to agree with us now — that the situation at the border is a national security crisis.”

Last week, the president rolled back his threats to completely close the southern border after he saw an uptick the response to the migrant crisis from Mexico, however, the president has left the option of adding tariffs onto Mexican goods, should the situation change.

There’s no reason why the border should not be closed to the Illegal Alien Invasion. Factual information from inside the “caravans” (mobs) are clear to point directly at George Soros being behind these invasions with funding and material support. Soros has a known agenda of open borders Worldwide; so, his involvement should not come as a surprise to anyone.
