Barbara Lee on U.S. Reaction to Plight of Immigrant Minors: ‘I Felt Ashamed’

East Bay Rep. Barbara Lee

CONGRESS | 13TH DISTRICT | Speaking before the Congressional Progress Caucus in Washington Tuesday, Rep. Barbara Lee reacted to harrowing testimony from young undocumented immigrants who have recently fled conflict in their homelands, saying, “I felt ashamed and I ask my colleagues: are you talking about America?”

The U.S.-Mexico border has been inundated this year with nearly 50,000 unaccompanied young people fleeing mostly Central American countries for the United States.

“Is this America, where you have fled and were treated as you were,” Lee said, according the CBS News Washington, D.C. affiliate. “So I want to say to you, this country is a country that stands for liberty and justice for all.”

President Obama recently proposed allocating over $3 billion to alleviate the flood of immigrants at the border. That plan, however, is being stymied by House Republicans. Lee, who is up for re-election this fall, urged for a solution to help the young immigrants reunite with their families in the states.

“So your powerful words and presence and testimony today really have reminded us of what we stand for and who we are as a country,” said Lee. “I look forward to working with all of my colleagues to find a way forward so that you and all of the children will feel safe and secure and reunited with your families. And just know that we as Americans appreciate your voices and communicating with us the tragic realities of what is taking place in your countries.”

  1. You can deny the polls all you want but here's the reality:

    The poll, conducted on July 31-Aug. 5, found that 51 percent of Americans believe the unaccompanied children being detained at the U.S.-Mexico border should be allowed to remain in the country for some length of time.

    That included 38 percent who thought the unaccompanied youngsters should be sheltered and cared for until it was deemed safe for them to return home. Thirteen percent said the children should be allowed to stay in the United States, while 32 percent said the children should be immediately deported.

    “Overall, people are humane and they understand that no matter what our situation is with the budget, whether or not we can afford this, these are kids. No matter what the immigration system is, they are innocent,” said Lance Lee, 42, of Alabama, who took part in the survey.

    So, get on board Mr. conservative extremist, whether you like it or not, America has spoken and all the polls show you lose!

  3. Reality and History:

    Part of an AP article

    Both parties agree that immigration is likely to play a bigger role in the 2016 presidential election. Arizona Sen. John McCain, the GOP nominee in 2008, has said his party can't win without supporting an overhaul of the nation's immigration laws, while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is among the potential candidates to urge the party to liberalize its approach to immigration.

    A GOP-sanctioned “autopsy” of Mitt Romney's 2012 loss made only one policy recommendation: The party “must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform,” a term understood to include creating pathways to legal status for millions of immigrants living in the nation illegally.

    Note—–The Republicans can't win a presidential election if they let the extreme right dictate their policies.

  4. It's really a shame that you can't answer the question posited below, a very honest one. However, the ultra-left radical fringe such as you people don't hail from the school of knowledge so one needn't try to engage with you cerebrally. Need to say it again because it's the American way: after Nov., Cornyn-Cuellar is happening whether you like it or not!

    We definitely agree. LEAVE IT!

    Back to your war-torn, poverty-ridden countries to fix it yourselves. This country had a revolution in 1776. Go have your own. Don't be a burden on others. Since they're treking through Mexico why not stay there? Anyone thought about that? Not too likely. After all, Los Estados Unidos is 'the wealthy land!' It's all about $$$$. Don't kid yourselves.

    The answer will be Cornyn-Cuellar after Nov. Unless Obama wants to be a complete lame duck, he'll get behind this bipartisan legislation which is the only answer and puts Central American illegals on par with illegals from Canada and Mexico and closes the current loophole. The Democrats will have lost congress after Nov. If Obama and Barbie Lee want to do something constructive they'll follow congress' lead after January, otherwise we run out the clock the next president will sing the song that a majority of Americans do now, 'Return to sender!'

  35. Yo, bitch!

    It's really a shame that you can't answer the question posited below, a very honest one. However, the ultra-left radical fringe such as you people don't hail from the school of knowledge so one needn't try to engage with you cerebrally. Need to say it again because it's the American way: after Nov., Cornyn-Cuellar is happening whether you like it or not!

    We definitely agree. LEAVE IT!

    Back to your war-torn, poverty-ridden countries to fix it yourselves. This country had a revolution in 1776. Go have your own. Don't be a burden on others. Since they're treking through Mexico why not stay there? Anyone thought about that? Not too likely. After all, Los Estados Unidos is 'the wealthy land!' It's all about $$$$. Don't kid yourselves.

    The answer will be Cornyn-Cuellar after Nov. Unless Obama wants to be a complete lame duck, he'll get behind this bipartisan legislation which is the only answer and puts Central American illegals on par with illegals from Canada and Mexico and closes the current loophole. The Democrats will have lost congress after Nov. If Obama and Barbie Lee want to do something constructive they'll follow congress' lead after January, otherwise we run out the clock the next president will sing the song that a majority of Americans do now, 'Return to sender!'

  36. Both parties agree that immigration is likely to play a bigger role in the 2016 presidential election. Arizona Sen. John McCain, the GOP nominee in 2008, has said his party can't win without supporting an overhaul of the nation's immigration laws, while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is among the potential candidates to urge the party to liberalize its approach to immigration.

    A GOP-sanctioned “autopsy” of Mitt Romney's 2012 loss made only one policy recommendation: The party “must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform,” a term understood to include creating pathways to legal status for millions of immigrants living in the nation illegally.

    Note—–The Republicans can't win a presidential election if they let the extreme right dictate their policies.
