“We were in a very bad situation under the Trump administration,” she added.

Pelosi’s spin comes while border officials encountered a 71% increase in migrants at the border in March from February.
Per the report “of the 172,000 migrants encountered, the majority were single adults, and included 18,890 unaccompanied children — a 100% increase from the already high numbers encountered in February, and the highest number recorded. In February, 100,441 migrants overall were encountered.”
During a recent Instagram Live appearance, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took issue with those using the word “surge” to describe the border crisis.
“This is not a surge. These are children and they are not insurgents,” the progressive Democrat said.
“This girl has a college degree and somehow she thinks that the word ‘surge’ is the root of ‘insurgent’…you can’t be this dumb, just a mental giant.”@PastorDScott & James Davis discuss AOC’s most recent claims that the word ‘surge’ is racist. pic.twitter.com/t95KB8tX3v
