Rep. Barbara Lee, California Democrat, accused the Trump administration Sunday of criminalizing illegal immigrants.
Ms. Lee, who joined a congressional delegation that visited intake and detention facilities Saturday near the border in Texas, described the conditions as tragic.
I mean, these people are being criminalized, said Ms. Lee on CNNs State of the Union. We went into the processing center, where there are cages, certainly. People think there arent, there are, we saw these cages.
At the detention center, she said, we talked to maybe 10 or 15 mothers. These are jails. These are prisons. These are people who are being criminalized.

Under laws duly enacted by the Congress.
Meanwhile Leftards spit on the honest applications of legal immigrant who must wait at the end of the line for 10 years while identity forgers are given priority.
,,,,,,, ms. Lee ,,,,, as soon as they crossed the border illegally they became criminals .
STOP RESISTING!, 'Rats. Seal the border appropriately with legislation. Then go fix the sh0le countries.
Um... I, wait.
I wonder what this person would say the same thing about Bonnie and Clyde and how the authorities criminalized them for robbing banks.
Princess Leah wannabe is the results of blind affirmative action African boosting. She is not competent to make statements on criminals when the person is unquestionably a criminal.
She is confused.Illegals either committed misdemeanors or felonies by being here illegally. Last time I checked that behavioris already criminalized.
Liberals are totally consumed by Trump derangement syndrome. Nothing coming from their mouths has an ounce of sanity.
Sorry, meant to say I wonder if this person would say the same thing about Bonnie and Clyde.
That was redundant.
Uh when someone commits an illegal act and are caught they are the very definition of a criminal. This lady is acting as an accessory by aiding the criminals in the commission of their crime.
Next she’ll complain that water is wet.
They are called ILLEGAL aliens for a reason: because they have crossed the border or overstayed their viesa and hence are in the country ILLEGALLY.
Sombody get this illiterate woman a dictionary.
Perpetuating the “race law” meme.
Everybody can see the difference in your hypothetical. Bonnie and Clyde were WHITE.
Yes, the criminals identifying themselves as criminals....well, maybe that is a good step forward. Even the stupid RATS cannot get away from the fact that criminals are criminals.....
Send them to her estate
Unfortunately, the halls of congress (small c) are open to everyone...even the LOONS.
Let's Wrap This FReepathon Up, Folks!
