Remember when President Trump went to visit the border in McAllen, Texas in January and the narrative was that he was going to hype a “manufactured crisis”?

And remember Jim Acosta’s travel log showing us how there was no crisis in McAllen?

No crisis here!

Some residents also wanted America to know just how safe their town is:

You see, the residents don’t “see the criminal migrants the president warned about” so they’re not a problem:

Which bring us to today’s New York Times and this absolutely horrific article on how female migrants were stashed in a home in McAllen, Texas, drugged and repeatedly raped:

From the article:

MCALLEN, Tex. — It was dark in the stash house where they kept her, the windows covered so no one could see inside. At first, the smugglers had her cook for the other migrants who had recently crossed illegally into the United States. Then they took her to a room upstairs, locked the door and began taking turns with her.

It was the summer of 2014, and Melvin, a 36-year-old mother of three, had just completed the journey from her native Guatemala, crossing the Rio Grande on a raft before being led to the house in the Texas border city of McAllen.

For weeks in that locked room, the men she had paid to get her safely to the United States drugged her with pills and cocaine, refusing to let her out even to bathe. “I think that since they put me in that room, they killed me,” she said. “They raped us so many times they didn’t see us as human beings anymore.”
