Nancy Pelosi Says Democrats Have 'Never Not Said That There Was A Crisis' At The Border (Video)

A reporter recently asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “For a number of months the Democrats have been saying that the issue at the border was simply a manufactured crisis. Are the Democrats willing to say now that there is an actual crisis at the border?”

Pelosi then responded, “Well, let me just say this. We have never not said that there was a crisis. There is a humanitarian crisis at the border, and some of it provoked by the actions taken by the Administration. And I will just quote our friends from the Evangelical community when they came in and testified in the last Congress in one of our rump hearings, because the Republicans wouldn’t have the hearing.”

However, on February 6 of this year, Pelosi posted a narrative on her website accusing President Donald Trump of “manufacturing a crisis at the border.” In a message still posted on her website replying to Trump's State of the Union address, Pelosi stated:

“It will take days to fact-check all the misrepresentations that the President made tonight. Instead of fear-mongering and manufacturing a crisis at the border, President Trump should commit to signing the bipartisan conference committee’s bill to keep the government open and provide strong, smart border security solutions.”

At Thursday’s news conference, Pelosi charged the crisis at the border on the Trump Administration’s “shameful” behavior:

“But, yes, it is a crisis. We’ve always said that it gets to be more of a humanitarian crisis the more that Republicans – the Administration, I won’t paint all the Republicans with this – the more the Administration acts in the shameful way, not consistent with our faith, with our beliefs that every person has dignity and worth, that every person has a spark of divinity within them that we need to respect, and that we have that spark of divinity that we need to act upon.”
