President Donald Trump declared the ongoing turmoil on the southern border “a humanitarian crisis, a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul” in his first address to the nation from the Oval Office.

In an emotional speech, the president highlighted the thousands of deaths that have come from drugs that have come in through the southern border and Americans who have been murdered at the hands of illegal aliens.

“Every day, Customs and Border Patrol agents encounter thousands of illegal immigrants trying to enter our country,” Trump said. “We are out of space to hold them and we have no way to promptly return them back home to their country.”

“America proudly welcomes millions of lawful immigrants who enrich our society and contribute to our nation,” Trump continued.

“But all Americans are hurt by uncontrolled illegal migration. It strains public resources and drives down jobs and wages. Among those hardest hit are African Americans and Hispanic Americans.”

“In the last two years, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes and 4,000 violent killings,” Trump added. “Over the years, thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country.”

“Our southern border is a pipeline for vast quantities of illegal drugs,” Trump noted. “My administration has presented Congress with a detailed proposal to secure the border and stop the criminal gangs, drug smugglers, and human traffickers. It’s a tremendous problem.”

    I wonder what part of that speech will be called a lie by the Dems. I lived in San Diego CA for most of my life and can verify that everything Trump said is true. We are, and have been, in a crisis situation. I have seen far too many family members, friends and their children, and just every day people have their lives destroyed by activity from illegal border crossing. So many became addicted to drugs smuggled across the border, a niece as a gang member in a gang that is made up largely of people who committed crime across the border then fled to America, illegally, to do the same here. An aunt that was involved in a hit and run that broke her spine, when she had 4 children, including newborn twins, to
    care for. When caught, the culprit was an illegal who had many other arrests and convictions on his record, but the liberal judge released him on a small bail, and surprise – surprise, he disappeared once again, presumably back across the border, or using yet another stolen identity. I have seen and comforted others that were victims of theft, robbery, rape and murder, compliments of illegal aliens. This has got to stop. These crimes could’ve been prevented, or at least greatly reduced, if we could stem the flow of illegals across the border. The wall could be a huge deterrent. Please America, tell your Senators to stop fighting Trump in this issue. We need that wall.
