Limbaugh Calls Child-Separation a ‘Manufactured Crisis’: Immigrants ‘Attempting to Invade Our Country’

Rush Limbaugh used his show on Monday to argue that the controversy surrounding the Trump administration’s policy at the southern border is a “manufactured” humanitarian crisis.

President Trump has drawn bipartisan criticism today, not only because his policy allows border patrol to take migrant children from their families, but also because he keeps blaming his own policy on Democrats.

As for Limbaugh, he’s brushing off the outrage and saying that the Democrats do much worse than Trump when it comes to breaking up families.

“This children and families being separated at the border, it is an entirely manufactured crisis,” Limbaugh said. “It’s entirely manufactured. This has been going on for years. It happened during the Obama Administration. Nobody said a word about it.”

Limbaugh continued to bash the media for ignoring this fact and portraying migrants at the border as asylum seekers.

“It’s all about people attempting to invade our country, not emigrate here,” Limbaugh argued.

Limbaugh pushed this argument throughout the show, claiming the media “manufactured” the crisis just like they did with Trump’s supposed Russian collusion and obstruction of justice. In this case, Limbaugh argued that the media and the Left are trying to use the child-separation issue to portray Republicans as heartless while distracting from the national economy and the IG report on the FBI.
