Dem Staffers Banned From Touring Border Facilities After Childish Behavior

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) barred Democrat House Oversight Committee staffers from entering border facilities this week following previous visits in which they were accused of being “disruptive” and “rude.”

Staffers, at the direction of Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD), inspected facilities last week and had planned to tour more this week.

Their behavior at previous visits – which reportedly included skipping portions of the tour, being “rude” to officers, and even refusing to leave the site after their visit – led to them being barred from visiting Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facilities this time around.

They will still be given two-hour tours of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities.

The resistance party, especially wide-eyed low-level staffers and interns, think rules don’t apply to them. They think acting like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, treating law enforcement with disrespect and disdain, is the way normal people behave.

DHS isn’t having it.

Perhaps the most egregious sin – though we suspect DHS is being polite when they say the staffers were simply ‘rude’ – is staying in a secure area past the time allotted.

DHS complained that such actions “interfered” with law enforcement operations.

Rather than learning and understanding that their childish behavior was unacceptable, committee staffers allegedly said they would continue to refuse to abide by the rules in future visits, thus the banishment.

Assistant Secretary of Legislative Affairs Christine Ciccone wrote to Cummings that “Committee staff repeatedly stated that they do not intend to abide by DHS guidelines.”

It’s behavior like this that has led unhinged liberals to believe they do not have to respect law enforcement, emboldening some to take actions such as hanging a Mexican flag in place of the American flag at one ICE facility, or even conducting an attempted terror attack at another.

Here’s something that’s really rich – the Democrat staffers are also accused of crossing the border into Mexico illegally. Who could have predicted liberals wouldn’t respect border rules?

Ranking Member of the Committee Jim Jordan, in a letter to Cummings, advised him that the staff crossed into Mexico “without consultation from the Department of State.”

“Several Border Patrol agents told us the nasty rhetoric from Democrats in Congress – one Member of this committee even likened them to Nazis – hurts morale and makes some agents reluctant to tell people what they do for a living,” Jordan added, taking a clear shot at Ocasio-Cortez.

Last month, Ocasio-Cortez toured illegal immigrant holding facilities where witnesses said she “was crying and screaming and yelling” at border agents, then emerged by lying about women being forced to drink from toilets.

These Democrat staffers are simply emulating the behavior of the new face of the Democrat party.

  • DHS should start Video taping them during these visits and show them on the news of how disrespectful they are and then ban them from ever visiting again (with or without their Congressperson). DHS should also alert the Mexican Police of these visits, so they (Mexican Police) can arrest them should they (the staffers) enter Mexico illegally (not crossing at a Border Crossing Point) and let them spend some time in jail.

  • A bunch of privileged, entitled, insulting, rule breaking, loud, pushy, democRAT, staffers and Congressional embarrassments made it necessary to stop further visits so that the routines were not totally put in disarray by their low class behavior.
    Who could have guessed that would happen ?

  • Elijah Cummings and his ilk would be better off paying attention to their own districts instead of badmouthing people who are doing their best to take care of massive numbers of people who have entered our country ILLEGALLY!!!!!
