Get ready for a bombshell on just how wacko the left is becoming…
Here it goes.
Texas Democrat Rep. Veronica Escobar has been accused of sending members of her staff to Mexico to coach illegal immigrants on how to exploit a loophole in immigration laws so that they can stay in the United States!
The ruse goes like this:
Since the “Remain In Mexico” law dictates that illegal immigrants have to speak fluent Spanish in order to be returned to Mexico, Escobar’s staff are reportedly telling them to lie to border authorities by pretending not to be able to speak Spanish so that they can’t be deported!
Check out this crazy news of the far-left congresswoman’s scheme on Twitter:
Rep. Escobar herself responded to the news after it went viral on Twitter, calling it "laughable":
People have responded to the news on Twitter to condemn Escobar for what she is doing.
Some are questioning the legality of such a thing and hoping to see Escobar arrested:
According Anna Giaritelli on Twitter, Rep. Escobar's ploy could very well get her in trouble with the law:
Others are going a step further to condemn Escobar's scheme as not just illegal, but treasonous!
The Washington Examiner has more details on the allegation against Escobar:
A Democratic congresswoman is sending staff to Mexico’s northern border town of Ciudad Juárez to find migrants returned from El Paso, Texas, under the “remain in Mexico” policy, then coaching them to pretend they cannot speak Spanish to exploit a loophole letting them to return to the U.S.
The National Border Patrol Council’s El Paso chapter and several Customs and Border Protection personnel told the Washington Examiner aides to Rep. Veronica Escobar, who took over 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s district, and the local Catholic diocese have interviewed thousands of migrants in Juarez over the past few weeks to find cases where Department of Homeland Security officials may have wrongly returned people.
“What we believe is happening is Veronica Escobar’s office is going … to basically second-guess and obstruct work already done by the Border Patrol,” said one senior union official, who shared evidence with the Washington Examiner from concerned CBP managers and rank-and-file members. Those documents have been held to protect identities.
Under the bilateral Migration Protection Protocols, or “Remain in Mexico” policy, anyone returned must be fluent in Spanish because they may have to reside in Mexico up to five years until a U.S. federal judge decides their asylum claim. A Democratic politician's aides reescorting people back to the port are telling officers the Central American individual with them cannot speak Spanish despite their having communicated in it days earlier, CBP officials said.
“What we’re hearing from management is that they’re attempting to return people, and the story was changed in Mexico, where a person who understood Spanish before now doesn’t understand — where a person who didn’t have any health issues before now has health issues," the union representative said.
Escobar's team has sought interviews with 6,000 people who were returned last month, according to one CBP official. The union learned from an intelligence unit within CBP that those doing the interviews are wearing recording devices during the interviews to tape conversations and possibly listen back later.
At the end of June, Escobar had also given a speech on the House floor in which she shed tears while pleading for "empathy for migrants."
