The Democrats are in panic mode.
They have tens of thousands of potential voters just waiting to turn red and purple states blue, it’s just a matter of getting them over the border and reminding them every election cycle of which Party was willing to stick their necks out to get them past Trump’s law enforcement officers on our border with Mexico.
George Soros didn’t spend a fortune to fund this movement, only to have President Trump’s pesky border agents get in the way.
Not one to be troubled by the inherent conflict of having the global body override the sovereignty of the nation, Lee and her fellow far-left radicals are advocates for a borderless society, unlimited immigration and untold thousands of loyal Democrat voters that could keep them in power for generations to come.
And with President Trump prepared to enforce immigration laws, Lee wants foreign boots on the ground at the border and once that precedent has been established, likely acting as an alternative to domestic law enforcement within the country.- I Love My Freedom
Democrat Congresswoman Barbara Lee (CA) responded to an article published by NPR about US Border agents who were forced to use tear gas when a mob of illegal aliens began throwing softball sized rocks at them and attempted to rush the wall, in an effort to illegally enter the United States.
Instead of praising the US Border agents for their quick and non-violent actions, the leftist Congresswoman called on the UN to bring their inspectors inside our borders to defend the “human rights” of the lawbreakers from multiple countries who refuse to follow the law and either apply for asylum or citizenship the legal way.
The tear-gassing of women and children at the border is an atrocity. It’s a violation of human rights. And it is a grotesque betrayal of our founding promise, as a nation built by immigrants.
I’ve called for @UN inspectors on the border, and I reiterate that call today.
Meanwhile, the Democrat Party and their allies in the media have completely ignored the fact that former President Barack Obama used the same tear gas that the Trump administration is using. In fact, under the Obama regime, tear gas was frequently used on mobs attempting to thwart our laws and enter our country illegally. We apparently, only need the UN to step in when US Border Patrol agents are using tear gas on illegal invaders…
The Washington Times reports – The same tear-gas agent that the Trump administration is taking heat for deploying against a border mob this weekend is actually used fairly frequently — including more than once a month during the later years of President Barack Obama’s administration, according to Homeland Security data.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has used 2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile, or CS, since 2010, and deployed it 26 times in fiscal 2012 and 27 times in 2013. The use dropped after that but was still deployed three times in 2016, Mr. Obama’s final full year in office.
Border authorities also use another agent, pepper spray, frequently — including a decade-high record of 151 instances in 2013, also under Mr. Obama. Pepper spray, officially known as Pava Capsaicin, was used 43 times in fiscal year 2018, according to the CBP numbers.
The data poses a challenge to the current anger over the Border Patrol’s use of tear gas Sunday to prevent a mob from busting through sections of old border fence in California.
Critics, including Latin American leaders, immigrant-rights advocates and congressional Democrats, have said use of tear gas is “un-American.”
“It’s horrifying to see tear gas used on mothers and young children as they seek refuge in the United States. That’s not what America should be,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat.
Other Democrats complained about threats of “deadly force” against the border incursions, which saw migrants punch through fencing, and launch rocks and bottles at agents who responded to stem the intrusion.
Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, explained to Fox News host Harris Faulkner how they were forced to use the “appropriate level of action” to stop the invasion of our borders by illegal aliens.
In saner times, Lee was relegated to the fringes of her own party. However, now that the lunatics are running the asylum, she is mainstream.
According to Mercury News – A new guard of leftists are looking to Lee as an inspiration. When New York Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stunned the political establishment by defeating a 12-term incumbent Democrat this summer, she was asked who she supported for speaker of the House.
“Is Barbara Lee available?” Ocasio-Cortez responded.
Still, there are some areas of Lee’s far-left record that could create hurdles for her leadership bid. After Cuban dictator Fidel Castro died in 2016, she told the Bay Area News Group that “we need to stop and pause and mourn his loss.” Those comments resurfaced earlier this year when Lee had to cancel a scheduled appearance campaigning for a Democratic candidate in Miami, where hatred toward the former communist leader — who Lee had met eight times — runs strong in the Cuban-American community.
It’s not the first time this far-left lawmaker has called on the UN to intercede and stop President Trump from defending our borders from an illegal invasion. On June 20th, Lee sent a letter for the UN to send observers into the US to investigate the separation of families at the border.
The Trump admin is committing human rights abuses in our own country. I sent a letter asking the UN to send observers to investigate the unconscionable separation of families at the border. These detentions are a violation of everything we should stand for. Read my letter
Will Democrats even see the danger of one of their top lawmakers calling on the US to stop President Trump from protecting our borders from an illegal invasion?
