Democrat ignorant of the laws Congress passed
Rep. Barbara Lee accuses Trump administration of 'criminalizing' illegal immigrantsYeah. Congress already criminalized it. Some Democrats are having a short-term memory problem.
David Urban, a former senior advisor the 2016 Trump campaign, countered that the adults have been jailed because they violated U.S. law.
“To address the point that the congresswoman raises: They’re in jail because they’re criminals,” said Mr. Urban. “They broke the law by crossing the border illegally.”
He added, “That’s why they’re in jail. You come to a facility, you come to one of the ports of entry, you apply for asylum, you do things right, okay, you’re not going to break the law. You cross the border illegally, you’re going to be in jail.”
