Things got emotional at a House Oversight Committee hearing Friday on conditions at the border. CBS writes:
Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, in his opening statement, said family separations were “more harmful, traumatic and chaotic than previously known.” In noting the reports of squalid conditions for detained migrant children, he urged committee members to ask themselves, “Would you allow this for your own child?”
When it was her turn to speak Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez testified:
“This is a manufactured crisis, because the cruelty is manufactured. This is a manufactured crisis because there’s no need for us to do this.”
And Rashida Tlaib added:
“The dehumanization is not only with these families but with these agents that we’ve told to do this to these families.”
