Democrat Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, in an interview on CNN, alleged illegal immigration is “really not affecting American people.”

Mucarsel-Powell made the astounding assertion in the midst of a discussion addressing current immigration laws.

She appears to be dismissing the need for such laws or enforcement altogether.

“I don’t think we need to change the statute or the law. What we need to do – and reminding this President also – is focus on the rule of law,” she said.

But, Mucarsel-Powell added, “I do worry that maybe the debate is focusing too much on issues that are really not affecting American people.”

One has to wonder if she’d be willing to share that point of view with Angel Moms and Dads who lost children at the hands of illegal immigrants.

Further Controversy

This isn’t the only controversial statement by Mucarsel-Powell on this very same topic. Not by a long shot.

In the same interview, she claimed the federal government is imprisoning innocent children.

“I cannot believe that we are actually having a debate on whether it is OK to imprison children in this country,” Mucarsel-Powell said.

We’re not. The debate involves the fact that Democrats don’t seem to understand that it’s the criminal illegal alien parents who are responsible, and that securing the border would actually benefit these children and their safety.

More Disgusting Comments

Mucarsel-Powell must really be trying to make a name for herself in a sea of insanity that is your modern day Democrat party.

Aside from the aforementioned comments, she claimed that Border Patrol agents are racist just a few days ago.

“For many, being a person of color means constantly having to prove legal status,” she said. “It means the smallest error in forgetting your ID could get you thrown in a detention center & separated from your family.”

Those comments came shortly after a Miami Herald report revealed that Border Patrol officials were checking the legal status of commuters at some South Florida Greyhound stations.
