New Jersey Congressman Bill Pascrell says Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is “totally out to lunch.”
Pascrell told WOR’s “Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning” that Nielsen is wrong to imply that Democrats don’t care about the country’s immigration laws. He said she’s turned out to be a “lap dog” for President Trump and is enforcing an immigration policy that is “not defensible.”
Pascrell was among a group of local Democrats who visited an immigration detention center in Elizabeth, New Jersey on Father’s Day. Many of those being held had been separated from their children.
“When you take children and use them as pawns, there is no excuse whatsoever,” Pascrell said.
