DNC TV: CNN Parrots Dem Solution to Border Crisis: Open It Up!

Border crisis? The Democrats, with a helping hand from CNN, have the perfect solution: open the borders! Presto-change-o: crisis gone! On today’s New Day, co-host John Berman parroted the Democratic line that the border crisis is: “All the more reason to pass comprehensive immigration reform.” 

Berman also fretted over the “roadblocks” [read, Republicans] such reform will face. 

 

 

Here’s his full question: 

One of the things the Democrats and the Biden administration says, this is all the more reason to pass comprehensive immigration reform and there’s the beginnings of action on Capitol Hill this week on that subject. What kind of roadblocks will this face?

“Comprehensive immigration reform” is of course the liberal euphemism for weakening border controls, opening the immigration floodgates, and offering citizenship to tens of millions of illegal immigrants already in the US.

Washington Post reporter Seung Min Kim, who doubles as a CNN analyst, apparently didn’t get the CNN memo on how to report the border crisis. She committed the faux pas of fairly reporting the Republican take on it:

“Republicans would point to [the crisis at the border and the rising number of migrant children] as signs that we can’t give any more signs — any more signals – that these immigrants — or that these immigrants would qualify for these bills, which they will not, first of all. But they say the Biden administration should not be sending signs that it is a good time to come here, which they’ve tried to make clear, but obviously, they are struggling with that at this moment.”

Kim tried to give the Biden administration some credit, saying that they’ve “tried” to make clear it’s not a good time to come to the border, but then added, “they are struggling with that at this moment.”

What? So you’re saying the Republicans have a point? Seung Min: You better toe the [Dem] party line more devotedly if you expect to continue to appear regularly on CNN!

Kim has shown other disturbing signs of a lack of proper allegiance to Team CNN-Biden. She recently retweeted what she called an “important story” on ICE having “no clear plan for vaccinating thousands of detained immigrants fighting deportation.”

CNN’s Berman pushing the Dem party line to the border crisis is passing “comprehensive immigration reform,” AKA, opening the borders, was sponsored in part by USAA, Trivago, and Hyundai.

JOHN BERMAN: Seung Min: what’s happening at the border. We now have 4,000 unaccompanied migrant children in custody, and these numbers keep on rising.

One of the things the Democrats and the Biden administration says, this is all the more reason to pass comprehensive immigration reform and there’s the beginnings of action on Capitol Hill this week on that subject. What kind of roadblocks will this face?

SEUNG MIN KIM: [interruption of video signal] There’s a passage of two smaller, targeted bills. It is a pathway to citizenship for thse “Dreamers,” those young undocumented immigrants who came here as children, and also a legalization path for undocumented farm workers who have been doing a lot of the work, particularly as essential workers during this pandemic, getting food to the table of Americans. 

And while that — those bills — is expected to pass the House, we know those bills will face an uncertain future in the Senate. And clouding all over this debate is that crisis at the border and the rising number of migrant children. 

I think Republicans would point to that as they argue against immigration bills this week and future immigration reform efforts as signs we can’t give any more signs —- any more signals — that these immigrants — or that these immigrants would qualify for these bills, which they will not, first of all. 

But they say the Biden administration should not be sending signs that it is a good time to come here, which they’ve tried to make clear, but obviously they are struggling with that at this moment.
