Posted on 09/09/2019 7:58:54 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are calling on their Democratic colleagues to provide more details about a series of trips taken to Mexico while staff were touring border detention facilities, amid reports that at least one Democrat has been involved in coaching migrants there on how to exploit U.S. immigration law.
In a letter to Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., obtained by Fox News, ranking member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said there were at least two committee staff trips into Mexico in August one of which required Border Patrol agents to provide a special escort back into the U.S.
Although you have the authority to direct Committee staff to travel internationally on official committee business, you have not explained why you authorized this travel into Mexico or what you sought to learn through these trips, Jordan wrote, adding that Republicans were not notified of the trips.
Jordan went on to accuse Democrats of seeking to delegitimize the administrations border security efforts and vilify the men and women who protect our border. He said GOP members are concerned the trips could continue to result in misleading information about the administrations border security efforts.

According to The Washington Examiner, staff from (Texas Democratic Representative Veronica) Escobars office recently coached migrants in Ciudad Juárez on how to exploit federal immigration law including telling would-be border crossers to pretend they cannot speak Spanish to exploit a loophole that would let them enter the US.

Of course they are involved in foreign collusion.
Well, this will amount to something...
There is no aspect of the Democrat party that is pro American anymore. Theirs is my way, or the highway Constitution be damned.
She should know how. Her husband is an immigration judge.
When pigs fly.
They were mules for carrying cash used to buy democrats from the cartels into the country.
The Democrats cause so many problems for this country. But they rarely suffer any consequences. It’s frustrating.
Acting surreptitiously as spies and agents of a foreign country is treason punishable in some cases by death
Michelle Bachman called these rats out. To no avail.
The Democrats have made no banes about the fact that they represent fraudulently documented foreigners, even ones that are not here yet.
Sure would be nice if the citizens had a party interested in representing them and the rule of law.
CONG JIM JORDAN WRITES: .....you have the authority to direct Committee staff to travel internationally on official committee business, yet you have not explained (A) why you authorized tax-paid travel to Mexico or (B) what you sought to learn through these trips, adding that Republicans were not notified of the trips.

Cummings is on-record, allocating $4.6 billion for illegal immigrants but homeless people are right there in West Baltimore two blocks from his district. One man said-"I havent seen Elijah Cummings in ten years, noting that the last time he was around was following the death of Freddie Gray, which was quickly politicized.
President Trump recently called out Cummings disrespect of Border Patrol agents during a committee hearing, while drawing attention to the conditions in Baltimore. Rep. Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA, the president tweeted.
Cummings is a 20 year denizen of The Swamp, and heads the Congressional Black Caucus. These Democrats are little more than an attack force against white Republicans, playing the race card and delivering black votes. Black voters have been duped into believing that Cummings is doing something for them and they, in turn, keep returning his stiff back to Congress.
Democrats are scared to criticize the Black Caucus. Republicans are even more fearful. Therefore, everybody goes along with the uselessness of Cummings and others.
Enter President Donald J. Trump. Hes not your typical Republican. He calls a spade a spade. Wait; am I racist for saying that? LOL. Trump is the only person in Washington, D.C. with courage and wisdom.
Trump exposed Cummings ,showing that he brings no value to the people of his congressional district, many who live in squalor. Cummings has been fooling people for decades. Hes not the only one.
Trump should call out all of them, such as Bobby Rush, Frederica Wilson, John Lewis, Charlie Rangel, Sheila Jackson Lee, and Bobby Scott. Outside of their undefeatable value for the Democratic Party, they are useless do-nothings and are never held accountable for anything. Detroit was only able to get rid of John Conyers because he was found to be a serial sex harasser. These duds all represent districts with vast swaths of ghetto neighborhoods. When Trump pointed out the crime-infested disaster area that West Baltimore has become, it shocked everybody, even Republicans and the conservative media.
They were stunned that Trump attacked a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. To do so was like touching a fourth rail of American politics. But, Trump is willing to tell Americans the truth, and this is why his supporters adore him.
When it comes to bringing home the bacon, Cummings delivers. The problem is that the billions in federal funding never reach the poor or decaying neighborhoods. It goes to Democratic supporters, like the teacher unions and other public employee unions, as a thank you for their support. It also goes to community activist groups who use the money to fund demonstration activity and voter registration drives. Baltimore received $1.8 billion in Obama stimulus funding.
It was meant for infrastructure, schools and reducing poverty. It never made it that far, though. A recent news headline reads that several Baltimore schools report 0 students proficient in math and reading. Zero. Another Baltimore News headline says that Baltimore students score near the bottom in reading and math on the key national assessment. Baltimore homicide rate is at a record high and deadlier than Chicago and Detroit. Another story says that nearly 25 percent of Baltimore residents live below the poverty level. 65 percent of Baltimores residents are black.
All of this carnage in Baltimore has happened under the watch of Cummings. Rather than accept his failure, Cummings responded to Trump that he spends every day in his district, trying to help his neighbors. If this is the result of his help, he should stop helping.
Amnesty Senators wearing R jerseys are not helping the country and people keep voting for them.

...you have not explained why you authorized this travel into Mexico...
Hookers, drugs, and cheap silver jewelry, of course.
Should I hold my breathe on this???
Uh, oh. Another stern letter from Republicans. No doubt the Democrats are quaking in their boots.
Demonrats = domestic enemies of the Constitution, colluding with foreign nationals against the United States. TRAITORS, in other words.
