Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) got testy on the Senate floor on Tuesday, mouthing off about immigration enforcement. No sooner had she begun her senseless tirade, though, than President Donald Trump’s DHS Secretary shut her down with ten perfect words. You’re going to love this!
Rookie Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is repeatedly proving that she has no idea what she’s doing on Capitol Hill. First, she questioned President Donald Trump’s nominee for CIA Director like a total “kindergartner,” according to former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino:
Now, Kamala Harris has demonstrated once again that she simply has no business serving as a U.S. senator. This time, the California Democrat attempted to grill Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen over the policy of separating illegal aliens from their children when they are caught entering the country together. Harris opposes the policy, in which illegal alien adults are detained and children are placed in the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services while the adult’s case is adjudicated, according to The Daily Caller.
Nielsen denied that she had been asked to separate illegal alien parents from their children as a method of deterrence. “My decision has been that anyone who breaks the law will be prosecuted,” she said. “If you’re a parent or you’re a single person or you happen to have a family, if you cross between the ports of entry, we will refer you for prosecution. You’ve broken U.S. law.”
It’s truly as simple as that. If you break the law, you will be prosecuted. We prosecute U.S. citizens every day, no matter if they have children they might be taken away from or not; they committed a crime and they should be dealt with. You can’t let someone off just because they have a family — that would be absolutely absurd.
However, when an illegal alien is arrested crossing the border with a child, Harris said she worries that “they will be separated from their parent.” Nielsen then reminded the misguided senator that U.S. citizen parents are separated every day in the United States when those parents are arrested or sentenced to prison. Nielsen responded, “Just as we do in the United States every day.”
