The Other Freshman Democrat Making Things Happen On The Border



with Congress basically at a perpetual impasse there's a lot of political theater going on these days and for the moment it's not robert muller providing the source material it's immigration the show went on today in South Texas where Vice President Mike Pence toured a border facility with Senate Republicans and they continued here on Capitol Hill or recurring characters from both sides put on a command performance it is time for action this Texan is not going to sit by and watch his State and Texas communities get overrun and abused because the cowards of the swamp sit idly by and cynically fail to do their job Mr Speaker we do have a crisis at our border it is one of morality as we have seen this current strategy unfold intentional and cruelly created by the Trump administration dead set on sending a hate-filled message that those seeking refuge are not welcome in America it was a scene members of Congress testifying before other members of Congress about the horrors they personally witnessed down at the border but it's hard to blame the House Democrats they can't get bills passed the Senate or the president and they do try to do oversight calling witnesses requesting documents the president stiff-arms up especially when it comes to Muller or Trump's businesses or his family all the juicy stuff everyone up here really wants to know about when the government started separating families the outrage eventually led to a Republican condemnation of the White House and a change in policy and when the number of kids held in border facilities spiked this spring House Democrats made a big show of it they were accused of grandstanding but it seemed to work the number of kids in Border Patrol custody is now way down from that time there's another freshman congresswoman who testified here today when you haven't seen on cable as much as some of the other ones she's leading a Democrats oversight efforts on this issue Veronica Escobar is a Democrat from El Paso she grew up on the border her husband is an immigration judge she knows this stuff Colt I to have legislation that will be coming up shortly HR 22:03 the homeland security improvement act which would increase accountability and transparency at HS so that these conditions these deaths these abuses can be relegated to a dark moment in history Escobar's bill was designed as a check on Border Patrol power it would establish Commission to oversee conditions on the border led by local officials faith leaders civil rights leaders and caters will create a system for tracking children within the border patrol system and among other things would severely limit family separations I've long been calling for the use of a civilian work force inside of DHS processing facilities we do need some social workers we do need Family caseworkers we need people who are doing the processing data entry other things we have a uniformed agents doing all of that right now it is crazy it doesn't make sense these are functions that should be performed by professionals who don't need a gun or a badge I think that it would help get agents back out on the line and it would improve the way that we operate as an agency Escobar knows getting these reforms through the Senate will be tough as in may be impossible tough but she hopes they can still use Congress's power of the purse to hold Trump accountable this is also about looking to fiscal year 2020 and I've testified before the Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security I submitted everything that I was hoping to get in into the bill I'm in close communication with the appropriators there so we'll see I mean it's it's a matter of trying every avenue possible to create change well Democrats act always one with those purse strings this time we'll see I mean we need you you

    She doesn't appear to have America's best interests in mind. She seems like a pro-illegal immigration America-second Democrat.

    So liberals think it was a win when they got the border patrol to stop separating children from human and sex traffickers? Jesus Christ. Just what the US needs sex trafficking through ports of entry. Is #metoo just ignored if it’s an illegal Mexican male with 5 young girls that aren’t related to him?

    Democrats don't care when Obama seperates families at the border but when it's Trump it's somehow different. Democrats are the real racist fucks playing the race card for everyone who doesn't agree with them and anyone who starts making any sense at all.
