The Democrats held a hearing on Friday to blame US Border Patrol and President Trump for the absolute chaos on the southern border.
Democrats opened the hearing with a panel of far left representatives who demanded that illegal aliens be released inside the country after they cross the border and claim asylum.
Then the House Democrats took turns attacking Border Patrol agents.
For months Democrats claimed the record border crossings was a manufactured crisis.
Now they are attacking US Border Patrol for not having enough resources. Congress is responsible to provide resources but they refuse to do their job.
The Democrats took turns attacking former ICE Director Tom Homan. Rep. Garcia was particularly vile with his attacks on Homan. Have we not learned from the internment of Japanese Americans?… Do you not care? Is it because these children do not look like children that are around you? I don’t get it. Have you ever held a deceased child in your arms?
Rep. Garcia: Do you understand that the consequences of separation will be life long trauma and carried across generations.
Tom Homan: First of all your comments are disgusting!
Rep. Garcia: I find your comments disgusting!
Tom Homan: I’ve served my country 34 years. And yes, I held a 5-year-old boy in my arms. I knelt down beside him and said a prayer for him. Because I knew what the last 30 minutes of his life was like. And I had a 5-year-old son at the time. What I’ve been trying to do for 34 years is to save lives. So for you to sit there and insult my integrity and my love for my country and for children, that’s why this whole thing needs to be fixed. And you’re a member here. FIX IT!
Homan was right.
These Democrats are absolutely disgusting.
From colleague Hillary Vaughn. At Hse hrng, fmr ICE Dir Tom Homan, raises his voice. Lectures lawmakers: "If you don't like the law..then change it..Congress failed to supply funding months ago…don't blame the men wearing the uniform..this is political theatre at its best!"
