CNNs Van Jones went head to head Tuesday with Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann over the border crisis, saying the congresswoman crossed the line in scapegoating the surge of unaccompanied migrant children for crimes committed by other undocumented immigrants.
Are you scapegoating every one of these kids? Jones asked Bachmann, a Minnesota Republican, on CNNs Crossfire.
Well, hold on a second. There are lines that cant be crossed here. Im sorry congresswoman, Im sorry congresswoman. There are lines that cant be crossed here.
Bachmann, who acknowledged that 57,000 children have crossed Americas southern border into the country in recent months, also pointed to two crimes in her state allegedly committed by undocumented immigrants.
Are you going to scapegoat these children for the crime of that despicable person? Jones asked. You know better as a congressperson than to lay at the feet of these children the acts of a despicable criminal.
Van, dont scapegoat the American people right now who are losing jobs, Bachmann replied.
Jones started out the program by calling Bachmann the most compassionate person in the U.S. Congress, noting how the congresswoman has fostered 23 children before getting her to weigh in on the border crisis.
However, Bachmann pointed out that her foster children were legally in the United States of America.
Why does anyone bother listening to that communist pig?
Van Jones, ex-convict.
I guess for the same reason they voted for a communist pig for President: Sheer ignorance. I like to point out to these idiots that they voted for a guy who believes in a system responsible for 100 million plus deaths, over 4 times the amount of people the Nazis killed. Would they vote for Nazis? I blame the media for this, they soft soap evil sc*mbags likes this, lie to the public that “Oh it’s all about helping the poor and the disadvantaged” when it does the exact opposite. Oh yes and their favorite: “It’s all about the children” whoring out peoples feelings which is what they are using now for this illegal invasion - “It’s all about the children” but of course not the children in this country!
Spar? I saw it: Van Jones didn’t even let her talk. He kept repeating: “But they’re CHILDREN!” “But... But they’re CHILDREN...!
“Yes but - “
Bachmann’s mistake was entering a debate with a fool.
After a couple minutes nobody can tell you apart.
They all say that and whomever they are talking to just sit there and don’t say that 80% of them are males ages 15-18.
I don’t find him handsome. I find him repulsive. But I’ve never been drawn to communists.
