Donald Trump Jr. says Americans have grown tired of listening to the “Democrats’ lies about border security.”

His comments came in a column posted on the Fox News website on Wednesday.

“The Democrats are losing the debate on immigration, but it’s due to their radical policies, not their messaging,” he said. “Their failure to persuade the American people to support their extreme immigration proposals, including open borders and 'free' healthcare for illegal aliens, is more than just a rhetorical mishap that can be fixed with a better ‘messaging’ strategy.”

And the president’s son maintained the Democratic 2020 presidential candidates are “soft on enforcement (at the border).”  

“During the second night of the first round of presidential primary debates, almost all of the Democrats on stage indicated that they would support decriminalizing illegal immigration, and all 10 candidates raised their hands to affirm that they would provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to those who cross the border illegally,” he said.

Trump Jr. also said ever since his father was sworn-in, “the Democrats have done everything in their power to derail his immigration policies, even insisting that the ongoing humanitarian and national security catastrophe on the southern border is nothing but a ‘manufactured crisis.’

He said Democrats will have to do more if they want to be taken seriously on the issue of illegal immigration.

“Judging from their behavior, though, it doesn’t seem like the Democrats are inclined to start embracing common-sense immigration policies any time soon,” Trump Jr. said.
