The Democrats’ new tactic to encourage illegal immigration: Go to Mexico and help immigrants cross into the United States.
That’s right, Democrats are actively working to help illegal immigrants break the law.
This is a new low even for them.
Senator Cory Booker crossed into Mexico to help five asylum-seekers gain entrance into the United States.
Booker was so proud of himself that he had to tell everyone how courageous he was. He tweeted: “Today I crossed the U.S.-Mexico border in El Paso with @2fams2gethere and @LasAmericasAC to help five women present themselves for asylum.”
How brave of him.
Not to be outdone, Congresswoman Veronica Escobar has sent members of her staff into Mexico to coach asylum-seekers on how to exploit loopholes in immigration laws.
You heard me correctly — a sitting Congresswoman is actively breaking the law to help illegal immigrants.
Rep. Escobar Breaks Immigration Law
The Washington Examiner published an investigative report detailing the misconduct of Escobar’s office.
She sent her staff to Mexico to coach immigrants how to exploit immigration laws. The loophole in the law allows those who don’t speak Spanish to move to the front of the line.
Under the “Remain in Mexico” policy, anyone returned to Mexico must speak Spanish because they will have to wait in Mexico while they await the verdict of their asylum request.
Escobar’s staff is conducting interviews with 6,000 people who were returned to Mexico to encourage them to represent themselves to the border ports of entry and to lie about their inability to speak Spanish with the hope that they will be pushed to the front of the immigration line.
The Examiner reported: “Escobar’s team has sought interviews with 6,000 people who were returned last month, according to one CBP official … They went through and interviewed everybody, cherry-picked them, brought them back, and now are using them as tag lines. They’re going over there and manufacturing a lot of these issues.”
If the allegations are true, the congresswoman may have a court date in her future. Her actions are a clear violation of the law.
The Washington Examiner report stated: “A criminal case would exist if Escobar were found to be complicit in an effort to perpetrate a fraud, which would have to include knowingly injecting false statements during interviews, follow-up conversations, and documents presented to U.S. officials.”
Oops — looks like she isn’t brushed up on her law. Knowing the law is part of her job requirement, being that Congress makes laws.
Either that, or she knowingly broke the law to score cheap political points with her Democratic base.
The most damning evidence of her crime was cited near the end of the report.
It stated that: “In one incident, an Escobar aide and diocese official walked a male migrant over the bridge in June and asked for him to be admitted into the U.S. because they had found he had ‘cognitive disabilities.’
Officers took the boy and turned the case over to the Border Patrol, where an agent found a Constituent Information and Privacy Release Form with the U.S. House of Representatives seal on it inside the 17-year-old’s file. Two officials said the paper would have to have been put in this file while he was interviewed in Mexico and was not supposed to have been left there because it would reveal to the Border Patrol that a member of Congress or their staff was meeting with migrants in Mexico.”
That is going to be hard to explain away. I hope she has a good lawyer … Her staff is going to need to go into spin control.
That goes for many other Democrats as well. They are showing that the only laws that are worth enforcing are those which they agree with.
They have become a lawless party.
