Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) joined migrants in Tijuana, Mexico, on Saturday and blasted President Trump for creating a "humanitarian crisis" at the border.

Jayapal, first vice chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, met with migrants who are seeking asylum in the United States. She told Politico on Friday that Trump is "lying about this caravan."

"He’s trying to use people who are seeking asylum and literally running from death just for his own political benefit and that’s a disgrace," she told the outlet.

In a video posted to Jayapal's Twitter page, she stated that there needs to be a way to process asylum-seeking migrants quickly and called the situation "a humanitarian crisis of Donald Trump's making."

CRTV host Michelle Malkin said Sunday on Fox & Friends that she isn't surprised at Jayapal joining migrants along the border.

"My question is which oath of office did this woman take?" she asked. "The oath of office for these public servants obligates them to uphold our laws and our Constitution and to protect our citizens first and foremost."

Malkin added that the issues at the U.S.-Mexico border predated Trump.

Jayapal also told Politico that when she read reports of tear gas being used toward migrants, she "just couldn’t sleep."

"I want to go see for myself what is happening, what happens to asylum seekers as they get to the border, how are they turned back, what’s happening to them in between, where the conditions in which they’re living," she said.
