First, they were pictured eating at a five-star restaurant in Italy and now the 13-person delegation of Democrats from the Congressional Black Caucus are in Ghana.
This trip’s purpose was to mark “400 years since the first set of slaves left the shores of Africa across the Atlantic to the USA”.
Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and her delegation are having a rip-roaring time on this boondoggle. She released a statement about the trip confirming what most Americans already know…this is an official boondoggle hosted by Pelosi and paid for by the taxpayers:
Solemnly, the delegation will pay respects at Cape Coast and Elmina Castles and the “Door of No Return,” to observe the 400th Anniversary of the First Enslaved Africans Landing in America.
“As we face evolving global security challenges, our delegation will thank our men and women in uniform and receive briefings from U.S. military leaders at U.S. Army Africa headquarters.”
“In Ghana, our delegation looks forward to high-level discussions on key issues such as regional security, sustainable and inclusive development and the challenges of tomorrow including the climate crisis.”
A video of the Democrats dancing and clapping was posted on Twitter:

A brief video of some of the ceremonies:
While our southern border continues to be overrun with illegals, these Democrats are taking trips like this one instead of legislating to change our immigration laws. Pathetic…
