Dem Rep to Illegal Minors: 'I Felt Ashamed' of America

Tuesday at the Congressional Progressive Caucus’ Ad-Hoc Hearing on the humanitarian crisis of unaccompanied minors flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border, Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) said she “felt ashamed” her country has handled the influx of illegal immigrant children

After hearing the stories of several children who made the journey alone across several countries and the chaos they were greeted with at the border holding facilities Lee said, “In listening to your testimony I felt ashamed and I ask my colleagues are you talking about America? Is this America, where you have fled and were treated as you were. So I want to directly say to you this counrty is a country that stands for liberty and justice for all.”
