Sally Kohn: ‘This is not a border crisis’

posted at 1:21 pm on July 9, 2014 by Noah Rothman

This is odd.

In an appearance on CNN addressing the crisis at the southern border, CNN contributor and The Daily Beast columnist was asked about the “optics” of the president failing to go to the border to see the situation with his own eyes. While Kohn said that she would go to the border in between Democratic fundraisers if she were the president, but simultaneously suggested that to demand he do so – an increasingly frequent phenomenon on the left – represents a double standard.

That was not, however, the oddest of odd moments which occurred in this short segment. Seconds later, Kohn insisted that the border crisis was not a border crisis at all. In fact, she seemed believed that it could be more accurately labeled a bureaucratic crisis.

“This is not a border crisis,” Kohn said. “These kids are coming to the border, they’re getting stopped, the border’s working.”

“Republicans are trying to turn this into a narrative of ‘Oh, the border isn’t working,” she continued.

“They’re not slipping through holes on the border,” Kohn concluded. “It’s just not happening.”

That is a bizarrely unfounded position to hold, and it was one that New York Times’ conservative columnist Ross Douthat confoundingly did not push back against.

So, let’s turn to that beacon of conservative thought, Alexandra Pelosi, for a brief rebuttal. In her recent documentary, Pelosi chronicled how human traffickers move women and children to the border and hustle them over fences and walls with simple devices like ladders. This, it would seem, counters Kohn’s assertion that there are no “holes on the border.”

Moreover, Kohn’s claim that these people are being caught after crossing is also something Pelosi addressed in her documentary. In interviews with countless, desperate immigrants, she learned that most believe that they are finally safe when they are picked up by border enforcement authorities. Pelosi said, in fact, that most border crossers simply wait to be picked up after they have made it across, believing falsely that they will be processed and sent to California or Texas to integrate into American society.

“I worry, in all of this, that we could be facilitating human trafficking,” Pelosi fretted in a recent interview on MSNBC.

But one does not need to appeal to the empirical experience of Pelosi’s immigration documentary to rebut Kohn’s claim that the border is, in fact, secure. The logic of the fact that, as she conceded, America’s processing facilities are being overwhelmed by waves of illegal immigrants suggests they got here… somehow.

UPDATE: Kohn recently took to twitter to clarify her thought:

For people like Noah Rothman, we (who don’t support amnesty and who express are anger over the illegal alien invasion and pro-amnesty traitors) are the problem.

Noah Rothman is always concerned with “perception.” And what’s his answer? To push back against vocal conservatives and to tell them to quit expressing themselves in ways which will offend liberals.

” Unaccompanied minors from Central America who are awaiting deportation could be housed in this former convent building owned by the Sisters of St. Francis in Syracuse. The building was photographed Tuesday, July 8, 2014. Federal inspectors conducted a site assessment on Monday to see if the former convent would be suitable to house the children.

The illegal children would live at a former convent – without the crucifixes, of course….

Syracuse.com reported:

The Sisters of St. Francis confirmed today that federal officials are exploring the idea of using the religious order’s vacant Syracuse buildings to house immigrant children awaiting deportation.

Officials from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Families and Children traveled to Syracuse on Monday to inspect six buildings on the 10-acre Franciscan campus at Court Street and Grant Boulevard, said Rochelle Casella, speaking for the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities.

The inspection is part of an initial site assessment to see if two former convents or the former Maria Regina College center may be suitable for temporarily housing an undetermined of children from Central America who are awaiting deportation hearings.

Cassella stressed in an interview Tuesday that the Sisters of St. Francis did not decide whether to accept any federal offer to lease or buy the properties.

“The Sisters say there are a lot of factors to be taken into consideration,” Cassella said. “The Sisters have made no decision about the future of the property.”

Federal officials initiated this week’s visit, she said, and looked over potential living quarters that include a gymnasium and commercial cafeteria.

HHS officials would not confirm the Syracuse visit…”

Kohn is obviously mouthing DNC talking points/lies. There are indeed thousands of children that have suddenly appeared here from Central America and Mexico.

But, they are children, and regardless of where they came from or how they got here, they have to be cared for and fed…there’s no way around that issue.

Now, what Kohn and other “journalists” should be doing (in the spirit of Woodstein) is to investigate who is involved in aiding and abetting this flagrant violation of immigration laws. I have no doubt it goes all the way up to Obama.

I view this as kind of a Democrat-sponsored modern version of the “Children’s Crusade”.

The Dems have been exploiting the poor and children for ages to advance Liberal-Marxist agendas and simultaneously accrue more power for central government and more money for themselves. This is a new low for the Democratic Party.

Bizzare.

Really Noah?

Nope, can’t think of any. Palin and Katie Pavlich come to mind immediately, and I don’t think we have any Barbara Mikulski-types on our side.

Katie is a cutie. If I had to pick it would be Coulter. I don’t find her that attractive, but that is a matter of personal taste I suppose.

As insulting as it may be, who would be considered as the ‘ugliest’ among conservative women in the media?

Bill O’Reilly?

Sally really makes you appreciate Maddow’s feminine beauty, doesn’t she?
