Illegal immigration continues to be an ongoing problem for the United States.
Democrat policies and rhetoric are only making the issue worse.
And Donald Trump made one comment during the last debate that proves the border crisis is worse than imagined.
The left’s stranglehold on mass communication has created a dangerous echo chamber.
Leftists are so convinced of their righteousness that they don’t even know what they don’t know.
That became crystal clear at the last debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
The second debate was canceled after the Debate Commission scheduled an online forum between the two candidates because of Trump’s bout with the Wuhan virus.
Trump had been cleared by doctors to do an in-person debate, but the commission intervened to save Biden from the flogging that happened in the third scheduled debate.
Moderator Kristen Welker wasn’t as disastrous as Chris Wallace had been in the first debate, but she was still clearly biased toward Joe Biden.
But a truly embarrassing moment for many members of the left occurred when the debate turned to the subject of illegal immigration.
“Children are brought here by coyotes and lots of bad people, cartels, and they’re brought here, and they used to use them to get into our country…We now have as strong a border as we ever had. We have over 400 miles of brand new wall, you see the numbers. And we have to let people in, but they have to come in legally.”
Many on the left showed their ignorance by thinking Trump literally meant the wild animal canines were galloping across the border with children on their back like an animated kid’s movie.
They were completely unaware that “coyote” is a common slang term for human traffickers.
Many “woke” leftists on Twitter made this cringeworthy mistake, but perhaps the worst was from a Georgia state representative.
Did @realDonaldTrump just say 545 kids they can't find their parents for came over through "cartels and coyotes"?! How the hell does a coyote bring a whole human across the border?! Lord—–stop talking. #FinalDebate

This is an elected official who clearly knows nothing about immigration, and probably other important topics.
The fact that so many Democrats oppose Trump on immigration without knowing anything about it is alarming.
Border patrol agents are constantly in danger because of confrontations with cartel members who are more than willing to shoot at feds.
It’s no wonder that Democrats believe immigration myths like the number of illegal aliens has magically hovered around 11 million for decades – or that illegal immigration is necessary because they do the jobs American won’t do.
But if they don’t even know what a coyote is, they can’t possibly comprehend the complex issue of immigration.
