In a speech during the debate of two bills dealing with the border crisis, Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA) criticized Republicans for the legislation they crafted then addressed those unaccompanied minors that had crossed into the United States illegally in Spanish.
“The corrosive effects of shutdown do-nothing politics is on full display here tonight in the House of Representatives,” Becerra said. “Stripping the rights of protections of children is never a good solution in any legislation. Whether it’s the children huddled at the border alone and afraid, or now including the young dreamers of America who believe in this country — they have now become the targets of this legislation. They are the ones that are being told, it’s because of you that we must change the law and treat human beings so harshly. Mr. Speaker, if i could speak to those frightened children and our dreamers of america, and those working for a fair solution on their behalf, this is what i would say.
Becerra was later asked by chair to provide an English translation of those remarks.
