I think what the Democrats are doing with the Border is TREASONOUS. Their Open Border mindset is putting our Country at risk. Will not let this happen!

This is an archetype for Big Lie propaganda — an egregiously false claim and a character attack. The Democrats are not for a policy of open borders and, if they were, it would not be treason.
Treason is giving aid and comfort to the enemy — like when your campaign knows a hostile foreign power is attacking your country’s election, you seek to exploit the attack for your own benefit, you fail to notify your government that you have knowledge of the attack, and you seek to frustrate the subsequent investigation of the attack. Perhaps The Donald, against whom a strong prima facie case for treason is already in the uncontested public record, is projecting.
