Do all Democrats now believe they’re “above the law”? Did years of Hillary and Barack’s lawless behavior start a new trend? Where is the DOJ on the illegal border crossing of the grandstanding, arrogant, Socialist-Democrat, New York City Mayor?
NYP is reporting that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and his security detail violated both Mexican and US immigration laws by crossing the border on foot during a visit near El Paso, Texas, US Customs and Border Protection alleges in a letter obtained by the Associated Press.
De Blasio went to a holding facility for immigrant children but was denied entry. He then went to Mexico and crossed into the US to get a view of the facility. The New York Police Department runs de Blasio’s security detail.
According to the letter, a uniformed Border Patrol agent noticed a group on the Rio Grande River flood plain south of the Tornillo, Texas, Port of Entry, taking photos of the holding facility. The agent asked if anyone from Border Patrol or public affairs was there to authorize their presence. A New York Police Department inspector said no, according to the letter, and when the agent asked the group how they arrived, they pointed to Mexico.
The agent told them they’d crossed the border illegally and asked them to remain there while he got a supervisor and took them to an official crossing for an inspection per federal law, according to the letter. But the group disregarded the order and drove back to Mexico, according to the letter.
De Blasio spokesman Eric Phillips said the group did nothing illegal and had approval to be there.
“The mayor crossed the border with the direct approval and under the supervision of the border patrol supervisor at this port of entry,” Phillips said in an email Tuesday night to the AP. “Any suggestion otherwise is a flat-out lie and an obvious attempt by someone to attack the Mayor because of his advocacy for families being ripped apart at the border by the Trump Administration.”
