Mr. Lieu, a Democrat who frequently rails against President Trump online, refused from the lectern at the front of the chamber, which was empty except for dozens of tourists who looked down from the gallery.

“I think the American people need to hear this,” Mr. Lieu said, brushing off Rep. Karen Handel, Georgia Republican who happened to be presiding at the time.

The back-and-forth went on for a while before Ms. Handel stopped and looked for guidance from aides.

He must have a time machine, that sounds exactly like the office of the Democrat National Committee the day after the upcoming midterms.

All this will do is show the Democrats for the hypocrites they are. That they will use children to gain political points. America will see right though this stunt.

There’s an audio tape of a kid crying, so all borders must be erased.

And how many American families are crying because their loved ones were killed by illegal aliens?

Send Lieu back to Taiwan. He is useless.

That wasn’t children. It was Democrats after the 2016 election. Or maybe it was children.

My two and a half year old grandson melted down into a crying fit the other day when he didn’t get to flush the toilet by himself.
