Yesterday Houston's most shameful lawmaker traveled to Mississippi to throw gas on a fire and create problems for the locals.
She also spent a great deal of time defending law enforcement officers who specialize in stopping human trafficking and violent criminals.
The House Homeland Security Committee held a field hearing in Tougaloo, Mississippi, on Thursday regarding Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) arrest of 680 illegal aliens in August who were working at several food processing facilities across the state. Democrats on the committee complained that the agency did not warn local officials before the raid, and also chastised the operation for resulting in family separations.
Jere Miles, a special agent in charge of the New Orleans ICE office, said, "It’s one thing to sit here and say ‘this is cruel, this is this, this the other,’ but it is the law, and the Congress writes and enacts the law. We don’t. The problem with looking at us and saying ‘you should exercise discretion’ is I honestly believe it puts too much power in the hands of police. Do you?"
Jackson Lee is a lawmaker in DC, so she could, theoretically, draft a bill and try to pass a law to change immigration policies.... Just sayin'.
But SheJack wasn't having it, "I beg to differ with you. It is not Congress’s policy to separate families and mothers from children. That is the policy of the president of the United States. That’s not our policy."
Since August, when the previously mentioned Mississippi raids took place in August, ICE and Homeland Security Investigations discovered 400 cases of identity theft which is a federal crime.
The city of Houston would like to apologize to the State of Mississippi for allowing this woman to show up and make things worse.
