DAILYKENN.com -- The New York Times has followed the lead of Bernie Sanders in admitting there is a need to address the border crisis.
Border-crisis deniers are becoming increasingly rare.
The reason? Is far left losing too much ground to patriots and willing to concede the obvious?
Of course not.
The far left continues to oppose the border wall. Rather, the far left is encouraging congress to send money to aid aliens who cross into the USA. That money will be an incentive that will encourage more illegal aliens to enter the country.

The New York Times editorial board urged Congress to give the Donald Trump administration requested emergency funds, writing that the president was right about a crisis on the border.
"Congress, Give Trump His Border Money," read the headline on the Sunday editorial, which argued that Democrats should approve the $4.5 billion in funds that were requested in a letter from Acting Director of the Office of Management and Budget Russell Vought.
"We are continuing to experience a humanitarian and security crisis at the southern border of the United States," Vought wrote. "Apprehensions are expected to surpass one million by the end of the year, more than doubling those compared to last year. The number of large-scale groups of family units and unaccompanied alien children (UAC), primarily from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, seeking to enter the country and claim asylum has increased dramatically."
"President Trump is right: There is a crisis at the southern border. Just not the one he rants about," the editors wrote. They argue that while Trump is wrong to demand a wall and to present the border as a natural security issue, there is a very real humanitarian crisis at the border due to the surge in asylum claims and wall funding is not included in the request."
