D-Day, for the historically challengedBreaking News
tags: Normandy, D Day, Clay Higgins
In a House committee hearing on immigration Wednesday, Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.) had this to say:
“Let me just put this in context for the American people. Perhaps the most famous invasion in the history of the world, D-Day; 73,000 American troops landed in the D-Day invasion. We have 76,103, according to my numbers, apprehensions along our southern border last month. We have D-Day every month on our southern border.”
Generally, when a person compares two things for “context,” it illuminates the understanding of those things. In this case, the reaction seemed to be “Huh?”
Whether you are wearing a brown vest at a congressional hearing or not, here are some things you may want to know about D-Day.
