Democrat Caucus Chair Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) on Wednesday suggested to reporters on Capitol Hill that immigrant families caught illegally crossing the border should receive financial compensation, Breitbart reported.
“To have these children depart, separated, is one of the most reprehensible things I’ve ever witnessed in my 20 years of service here in the House of Representatives. These children need to be reunited with their parents immediately. Once again, the administration’s actions in the first place, with the inability to restore these families, is reprehensible.” Crowley stated. “The damage that has been done to these children will be life-long, to these family units will be life-long, as well. In fact, I suggest they need to be compensated for what this administration did to them, The first form of compensation needs to be the full reunification of these families.”
Breitbart had more on the subject:
“Crowley, presently in his 10th term in Congress and the fourth highest-ranking Democrat in the House, lost to self-described “democratic socialist,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York’s 14th congressional district primary in June. The 28-year-old’s far-left platform includes abolishing ICE, universal guaranteed employment, and Medicare for all. In an interview with CNN, Ocasio-Cortez said she supports impeaching President Trump, despite warnings from Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to avoid the issue. Crowley’s former opponent has yet to suggest immigrant families caught crossing the border should be given money.”
Crowley’s just another lawmaker that’s proposing laws that directly hurt the working class. Crowley wants taxpayers to fund further damage to themselves.
