Democrats are so out of touch with what’s really going on in our country it’s totally outrageous.
They accomplish nothing because all they are focused on is slamming Trump and his administration.
On top of that, they clearly are ignorant on who’s in charge of what and spend millions of dollars with their useless attacks on Trump officials.
Yesterday they hammered Ben Carson with ridiculous questions that his department has nothing to do with trying to trip him up with a load of crap.
It didn’t work and Carson slammed them with facts.
It happened again- this thime it was Texas Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee drilling Kevin McAleenan, the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) during a House Homeland Security hearing.
The moron from Texas angrily demanded that there be an “internal” DHS task force to investigate child migrant deaths.
One problem- the task force she is demanding already exists within the department.
What a waste of money and time and these idiots actually get paid for this garbage.
“I believe there should be an internal task force set up dealing with children, dealing with children’s death,” Jackson Lee said. “My question to you is: Will you set up an internal in-house task force to deal with … these deaths, to find what solutions should be put in place?”
“We already have internal task forces working these issues,” McAleenan responded. In response, Jackson Lee asked for the names of the individuals involved because Americans are “outraged.”
The exchange follows the death of a 16-year-old Guatemalan migrant who passed away while in Border Patrol custody.
The Guatemalan boy was apprehended on May 13 for illegally crossing the U.S. border near Hidalgo, Texas. He was diagnosed with the flu and prescribed medicine Sunday after telling medical staff he didn’t feel well. However, he was found unresponsive by Monday morning while in the Weslaco Station in Texas.
Following news of the boy’s death, Customs and Border Protection immediately announced that “an independent and thorough review of the circumstances” would be conducted. The facility that housed him has since stopped taking in new migrants after a high number of detainees began reporting flu-like symptoms.
The boy’s death — the fifth in Border Patrol custody since December — has sparked renewed outrage from Democratic lawmakers.
McAleenan said that DHS is already working to beef up medical resources to better accommodate the huge influx of families and children arriving at the border, informing Jackson Lee that 55 medical professionals are “on board” in El Paso alone to care for migrants.
“These tragedies are devastating to us, and they are avoidable,” the DHS secretary said during the hearing. He used his time with lawmakers to not only request additional funds to address the crisis, but also called for legislative reforms to allow immigration officials to have “additional authorities” when handling unaccompanied minors from Central America.
“Our immigration system is full and we are well beyond our capacity at every stage of the process,” he said.
The dems are completely anti-American piles of crap.
