Dem Congresswoman Admits Helping Caravan Members Enter US After They Were Denied Entry


It’s hardly a secret that leftists love the idea of open borders and letting illegal immigration run amok.

It’s also a well-established fact that Democrats typically harbor a seething hatred of all things related to President Donald Trump and will stoop to any depth to needle the president.

But it takes a certain level of brazenness, even for a leftist Democrat, to boast about personally helping and bringing members of the migrant caravan across the border just to stick it to Trump.

U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal, a Washington Democrat, apparently has that kind of brazenness.

The 53-year-old Jayapal bragged on her Twitter account about helping migrants get into the United States after they had previously been denied entry.

“I was able to successfully assist 5 asylum seekers – 2 unaccompanied minors, a mother and her 9 year old child, and a young man with a serious medical condition – into the United States,” Jayapal wrote on Twitter.

So, to recap: A United States congresswoman is bragging to the public about bringing in two minors who will inevitably end up in the foster care system, as well as someone who will immediately put a squeeze on taxpayer-funded health care programs with a “serious medical condition.” Wow.

Jayapal didn’t stop there. In a subsequent Twitter post, she also took it upon herself to accuse Trump’s border patrol agents of “illegal” acts.

“Initially they were denied, in violation of U.S. and international law, but I was able to intervene and ensure that they could simply present themselves for asylum in the United States,” Jayapal said.

It’s not abundantly clear what violations Jayapal is speaking of, though presumably she’s referring to United States asylum laws. In that sense, it’s beyond depressing that a United States congresswoman can be so obtuse as to what exactly qualifies a migrant for asylum.

To qualify for asylum, migrants must be fleeing because they have a well-established fearing of persecution for any number of reasons, including political or religious affiliation. Seeking employment or better health care, as many of these migrants admit to be looking for, unequivocally do not qualify for asylum.

U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, a conservative Florida Republican, took to Twitter to call out Jayapal’s efforts.

“Nuts” is one word for it, anyway.

But even if we were to give the fact that Jayapal did some incredibly humane act of goodness, how pathetic is it that her good deed was done just to attack Trump?

And make no mistake, Jayapal is a huge Trump critic.

According to Roll Call, she has just been elected co-chairwoman of the House Progressive Caucus. She also said in an interview with Politico on Friday that she decided to take her most recent trip to the border because she was horrified by reports last week about the Border Patrol using tear gas on migrants from the caravan who tried to storm the border.

Are Democrats like just making the illegal immigration problem worse?

“When I read the report about a week ago that kids and moms were being tear gassed, I just couldn’t sleep,” she told Politico. “I want to go see for myself what is happening, what happens to asylum seekers as they get to the border, how are they turned back, what’s happening to them in between, where the conditions in which they’re living.”

She clearly had no concern about the Border Patrol agents who were involved. They’re just regular American citizens doing their jobs — the kind of people Democrats increasingly have little use for, apparently.

And naturally, she blamed Trump for all of it.

“The president is lying about this caravan, he’s fear mongering,” she told Politico. “He’s trying to use people who are seeking asylum and literally running from death just for his own political benefit and that’s a disgrace.”

To paraphrase Jayapal, she is lying about this caravan. She’s trying to use people who are seeking asylum and literally running to better jobs for her own political benefit.

And that, my friends, truly is a disgrace.
