Trump Now Fully Owns The Immigration Crisis February 6, 2024February 5, 2024 I again commend Dana Milbank’s column: Blame for the border crisis now rests squarely on the shoulders of the Republican Congress and the strongman from whom they take their orders. (“We have a catastrophe at our southern border,” Mike Johnson said after ascending to the speakership in October. “Inaction is unacceptable, and we must come together and address the broken border.” . . . But then Trump intervened. . . . Suddenly, Johnson forgot everything he had previously said about border legislation.”) Share widely! If you prefer video, these three minutes start with a riff on oil, after which House members making it clear: Republicans are now squarely to blame for failing to address the border crisis — just as they were a decade ago, when they blocked the bi-partisan reform that had passed the Senate 68-32 and would have become law if only the Speaker had allowed it to come up for a vote. People need to know it’s Republicans who kill bi-partisan solutions to the border crisis. If they believe the crisis is real — as it is — they need to be furious with Republicans. As always, I cede the balance of my time to Lindsey Graham (60 seconds). BONUS Like movies? theater? TV? My friend Julian Schlossberg, a producer of all three, has just dropped the first episode of his new podcast, Movie Talk: an interview with F. Murray Abraham.
