It looks like there is a crack in the fever when it comes to the mainstream press over the Mexican Border. They ignored the problem on our southern border for the last two years. Then, they said that it was a manufactured hoax. For a while, all the pundits from the left were all over TV downplaying what is going on with the border of Mexico and the U.S. despite the videos showing us otherwise. It was one thing for the government to ignore this vexation but now the so-called free press was complicit.
We got word that Lara Logan got a new job to go down to the border and tell us the truth of what is going on down there. As soon as word got out about this people knew that Lara would give us the skinny about the border. The left does not own her. The right does not own her, so we felt, we will get the truth once she is down there. Ironically or maybe not so ironic, her former employer 60 Minutes went down there and beat her to the punch.
Sunday night on April 28th, 2019 60 Minutes aired a piece that was the first anything we have seen that more reflects the reality of our southern border problem. Across the airways, the press stopped claiming that the border situation was a hoax. So little by little the fever seems to be breaking with the American leftist press. Maybe, because we are now in the 2020 presidential election cycle, the press is changing its tune. Dishonesty about our southern border during an election of this magnitude would hurt the Democrat Party.
The acknowledgment of our border problem may be a day late and a dollar short. Over the last thirty some odd years, going back to President Reagan, our government has been allowing people to come across the border unimpeded. As of late the number of people coming across the southern border has been overwhelming. Systematically, these last few decades have fundamentally changed the ethnic composition of America.
Now, don’t say that out loud because you will be accused of being a racist. I just remember back at the beginning of the 2016 presidential cycle a man named Marco Gutierrez, the co-founder of Latinos for Trump, warned us “If you don’t do something about it, you’re going to have taco trucks on every corner.” Looks like all that is left is whether you like soft shell tacos or the hard ones. I like the hard.
