Sen. Kennedy: 'You Can Drown in Hypocrisy' of Dems on Mueller Probe vs Immigration Law
Sen. John N. Kennedy said Wednesday that "you could drown in the hypocrisy" of Democrats who flout accusations that President Trump is defying the rule of law in regard to the Mueller probe, while they themselves refuse to consider the rule of law when supporting illegal immigration.
"Our immigration laws in America are not broken. For the longest time, they weren't being enforced," Kennedy, a Louisiana Republican, said.
He said that since Trump has begun trying to enforce the law, it's "called Mexico's hand" and forced Democrats to take a stand on the issue.
"The insider elites and nature cure quacks lecture the president every day about the rule of law," he said. "How come it doesn't apply to those who are trying to break our immigration laws."
"You can drown in the hypocrisy," he said.
Kennedy referenced the thousands of Central American nationals who've traveled in caravans to Tijuana, Mexico, trying to get into the United States.
Kennedy said one million people on average become citizens annually through legal means, but that hundreds of thousands try to do so illegally.
"To [the left], illegal immigration is almost a good thing," he said. "They're the only people in the Milky Way who believe that."
Kennedy said that what is happening in Baja is not unlike what happened to President Carter when Cuban dictator Fidel Castro foisted the Mariel boatlift on the residents of Florida.
The 1980 incident ensued after Castro permitted large numbers of Cuban refugees to sail to South Florida and try to immigrate.
"Castro tried to undermine the immigration system in Florida," he said, adding that he "marvels" at the hypocrites who criticize Trump for trying to stem the tide at the Mexican border.
