wave killing Americans and the president is an accessory to murder. We are being overwhelmed. There is no word to describe this except invasion. Illegal invaders invading the United States and crossing our border by the millions. Criminals, rapists, murderers, child predators and God knows who else.

God knows who else? I mean, statistically, at least a couple of them have to be podcasters. I mean, murderers? But point taken. I think my pants just shit in my pants. And if you're thinking this is just some Central American mistreatment, think again. The countries we know they come from: Iran, the number one state sponsor of terrorism, its satellite countries Syria, Egypt, home of the Muslim Brotherhood, Afghanistan, home of Al Qaeda, over 10,000 from Russia.

PHIL) I mean, there are clearly... clearly, I mean, tight asses. I mean, there's not... there's not... there's not an ounce of fat on these mothers. I'm absolutely right: I want to go down to that damn border and I want to get to the bottom of these immigrants. I want to suck and even-- I want-- I want to get outside, how about that? That's what I'm saying. Wow, so we have... The crowd loves my dirty Phil impression. We have criminals. We have terrorists. Is there anyone else down there we should worry about? Has anyone ever heard of Hannibal Lecter?

He was a good guy, but that's what's coming to our country right now. Wouldn't cannibals among them be the solution to the problem? Or are they fasting until they reach the United States? Well, it's clear hyperbole, but there seems to be bipartisan agreement now that the border is an issue. In December alone there were 300,000 crossings. This is an all-time high and is not sustainable. But Republicans rejected the opportunity to pass a strong border bill supported by the Border Patrol Union because of their confidence that fear-mongering will be an effective strategy in an election year. It's about branding.

I call it immigration

crime

. I really call it Biden's immigrant crime, but it's too long. So let's call it immigrant crime and everyone will know it's because of Biden. We'll call it Biden's immigration crime from now on, okay? It is a huge crime. We'll call it... I got it, bigrant. Let's call it bigrant: Biden crime. Biden, oh, that's good. That is a smart and big crime. It's a suitcase. I'm not completely sold on bigrant. He really sounds like a migrant open to crossing any of the borders. It's immigrant crime, bigrant... look, there are some undocumented immigrants who are committing crimes, some of them horrible.
But isn't that true for all demographics, including natives? I'm pretty sure there are still plenty of opportunities for our local American criminals. But it's - if it's enough of a problem that on Thursday we had an old-fashioned border showdown when both men saddled up and headed to the southern border. Trump headed to Eagle Pass and Biden to Brownsville. It was Cassidy the bitch against the sunset boy. And Biden was enthusiastic. We are the United States of America. He got over it. He knew exactly where we are. Yeah! He knew what country we were in. Bang, boom, this is the United States of America.
I take back everything I said a month ago. State your proposal, sir. I understand my predecessor is in Eagle Pass today. So this is what I would say to Mr. Trump. Instead of playing politics with the issue, instead of telling members of Congress to block this legislation, join me or I will join you in telling Congress to pass this bipartisan border security bill. We can do it together. Ladies and gentlemen, the olive branch has been extended down the aisle in a show of genuine desire to resolve this complex and perplexing issue. Trump, your response? Crooked Joe is the blood of countless innocent victims.
That is a no. Seriously, Crooked Joe? Shall we continue with that? Corrupt Joe Biden is corrupt. I removed Hillary's name because I guess it's no longer relevant. Do you have to say out loud everything that goes through your head? Eight years have passed. Won. The woman has already been through enough. Now are you going to take away her nickname? What are you doing? But let me tell you something, Trump... I don't know why I got so serious... you can't scare Democrats. Because the only thing Democrats have are principles. When it comes to immigration, Democrats cling to our country's cherished ideals, the eternal promise engraved at the feet of Lady Liberty that speaks to our better angels.
The only way to have a great future in America is if we welcome and accept immigrants. These people are people we should help. The United States welcomes immigrants. We want people to come here regardless of where they come from or the circumstances that brought them to this country. This is a place where the Statue of Liberty stands in the harbor and we say, bring us your weary ones, those who long to be free. Unwavering and fundamental American values ​​of compassion and empathy. And there's nothing you can do to change that. REPORTER 4: The buses arriving in New York City from Texas, one after another, filled with immigrants seeking asylum.
Is that all you have? Nice try, Texas, but you're not the mayor. We are New York City. How dare you? No disrespect, but you will never change our values ​​because you are afraid. So keep sending those busloads because we have plenty of room in our hearts and in this city. We have no more space in the city. What about the longings and the--and the weariness and weariness of those who are longing? For 110,000 immigrants we have to feed, clothe, house, educate children, wash their sheets. This thing will destroy New York City, it will destroy New York City.
I mean, they're supposed to be washing our sheets. What's going on here? What kind of messed up world do we live in here? Yes, it turns out that in the ancient battle between values ​​and fear, values ​​never stood a chance. It took two buses full of Venezuelans to get from here to here. So this is the terrible cycle that America is trapped in: the Democrats, whose high values ​​and principles did not survive a high contact with reality, and the Republicans, whose desire to solve the problem is not as strong as their desire to exploit it. , and no one wins... well, except this guy.
Clearly fit. He said these guys come in six packs and combat boots. Learn more about it in his new special, Dr. Phil Straddles the Border.
