First off, I’m amused by the lame ‘no labels’ deflection from the White House Press Secretary, who continues to avoid using the word crisis to describe what’s brewing at the Southern border.  She can continue with her tortured spin about how it’s a “challenge” or whatever, but the rest of us must face facts.  It’s…
