Remember when President Donald Trump traveled to McAllen, Texas, the famous border town? That was in January as he was spotlighting the need to build the wall. Nancy Pelosi and her cohorts fought back, getting the scatter-brained mayor of McAllen to claim there was no border crisis and no wall needed. Well, now there has been a horrendous discovery found smack-dab in McAllen, and it utterly destroys Pelosi. Don’t miss this.
Just last week, Nancy Pelosi was in Laredo, Texas to gain support as she tries to block the president’s national emergency declaration. The Speaker was trying to show Americans there is no crisis on the border in the Lone Star State.
“U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi used the backdrop of a border bridge in Laredo on Friday to open her push to block President Trump’s national emergency declaration, which Democrats say could re-direct nearly $520 million in military construction funds from Texas,” the Houston Chronicle reports.
“The president’s act is lawless and does violence to our Constitution, and therefore, to our democracy,” Pelosi told reporters. “Not only is he disrespecting the legislative branch and the Constitution of the United States, he is dishonoring the office in which he serves.”
“Pelosi was joined by Laredo Mayor Pete Saenz and U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Laredo Democrat who helped negotiate a bipartisan $1.37 billion border funding deal that averted another partial government shutdown. Trump, however, has sought some $6 billion for new border barriers and has vowed to use emergency powers to circumvent Congress and siphon money from the Pentagon,” the Houston Chronicle adds.
Well, there has been a gruesome discovery of a “rape-house” in McAllen, which is a border town in Southern Texas just like Laredo. Once again, sadly, Trump has been proven right. And ironically this report is coming from the New York Times who has fought Trump’s wall every step of the way. It’s titled, ‘You Have to Pay With Your Body’: The Hidden Nightmare of Sexual Violence on the Border.
It was the summer of 2014, and Melvin, a 36-year-old mother of three, had just completed the journey from her native Guatemala, crossing the Rio Grande on a raft before being led to the house in the Texas border city of McAllen.
For weeks in that locked room, the men she had paid to get her safely to the United States drugged her with pills and cocaine, refusing to let her out even to bathe. “I think that since they put me in that room, they killed me,” she said. “They raped us so many times they didn’t see us as human beings anymore.”
On America’s southern border, migrant women and girls are the victims of sexual assaults that most often go unreported, uninvestigated and unprosecuted. Even as women around the world are speaking out against sexual misconduct, migrant women on the border live in the shadows of the #MeToo movement. [via New York Times]
And that brings us back to the Democrats and their cohorts laughing in our faces when we demanded our country needs a wall. Twitchy reports, “Remember when President Trump went to visit the border in McAllen, Texas in January and the narrative was that he was going to hype a ‘manufactured crisis’?”
Amnesty International tweeted, “Trump is now in McAllen, Texas to hype up his proposed border wall. The wall is nothing more than a manufactured crisis and a divisive symbol of fear. The real crisis is the horrific violence and persecution faced by desperate people and families who have fled home.” Oh really? Yeah, this tweet, including the scatterbrained Mayor Jim Darling and a few thousand others, aren’t going to age well.

Then, Pelosi and the Democrats made sure Mayor Darling also arranged these optics in this tweet from USA Today: “A resident of the border city Trump is visiting today says she doesn’t see the criminal migrants the president warned about in his Oval Office speech.”

All the while just a few miles away was this “rape-house” of horrors where migrant women and children were raped day in and day out. If the wall is built, it will free up the border patrol to investigate other areas. We bet this rape-house could have been discovered long ago if our resources weren’t spread so thin patrolling the parts of the border where there is no wall.
And does Nancy Pelosi and her cohorts care? Hell, no. Next time you hear ole Pelosi claiming border walls aren’t needed and border towns in Texas are safe, make sure she gets the information about the McAllen “rape-house” that was right under her nose when she was telling Americans it was one of the safest cities in Texas.
