Stupid: Dem Rep. Jayapal calling for ‘reparations’ for illegal alien kids ‘separated’ at border

By Jon Dougherty

Another day, another ridiculous, virtue-signaling ‘proposal’ from a Left-wing Democrat given a platform by equally ridiculous media hopelessly afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome.

On Friday, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), in an interview with homophobe Joy Reid of MSNBC, said that the U.S. government owed “reparations” to children of illegal alien migrants who were separated from their alleged families at the border.

Jayapal, a native of India where a historic caste system persists that is deeply unfair to lower-class children, was talking to Reid about an interaction she had with acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker regarding family separations at the border.

“This is such a compelling issue, Joy, you and I have talked about it before,” Jayapal said. “Republicans and Democrats agree that this was a heinous crime that has been committed against thousands of children.

“And so I think he really didn’t know what to do, so he tried to be dismissive,” she claimed.

“If we all don’t have real passion, real commitment to figuring out what happened and making reparations, the U.S. government should make reparations for what we have done to these families,” she claimed, though she failed — as Democrats always do — to provide details of what reparations would look like. And of course, Reid didn’t press her for details.

Jayapal continued her virtue signaling on social media. “I’m proud of my passion, Mr. Whitaker,” she tweeted. “We all should show real passion and a real commitment to fixing what was done to these families and these children. This is lasting trauma for thousands of children—we must make reparations.”

That’s wonderful. Rep. Jayapal represents Americans in Seattle, where illegal immigration isn’t the problem it is in other parts of the country.

    That said, it’s also important to point out Democratic hypocrisy on this issue: Jayapal wasn’t anywhere to be found calling for ‘reparations’ when Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security was separating children from parents at the border (and putting them in cages, as pictured above — by CNN, of all networks). Yes, all of the usual Left-wing media suspects have tried to “fact-check” this and claim it isn’t true, but it is true. In fact, Obama was known as “The Deporter-in-Chief.

    But beyond this monumentally stupid call for payments to illegal alien children is the fact that American taxpayers would be on the hook for paying off the children of parents who voluntarily chose to violate U.S. immigration laws — and put their kids in harm’s way to do it. Where’s Jayapal’s outrage about at these parents?

    What’s more, were the government to ever adopt such an asinine policy, it would serve as yet another magnet for the world’s poor to risk exploitation, abuse, and even death at the hands of Mexican cartels to make their way to our border for an expected payout. The potential cost of this stupidity would quickly reach tens of billions per year and be responsible for the abuse and death of an incalculable amount of people.

    It’s time to start calling Democrats out for blocking all attempts by POTUS Donald Trump and (most) Republicans to shore up border security and enforce all immigration laws. No matter how they wrap their arguments — in phony “compassion,” “concern,” or “equality” — the hard fact is they are providing aid and comfort to people who have no inherent right to be in our country nor to demand access to our economy.

    Once upon a time, we’d call such actions treasonous.

    1. American criminals are separated from their American children and family while in jail – do not hear anyone crying about them. Take care of what WE have before inviting more.

    2. This vile woman disproves the theory that diversity strengthens our country.

      What about reparations for the American families who have lost loved ones at the hands of illegals? Since it’s the Dems who are refusing to fund the southern border walls, should it then be the Dems responsibility to pay reparations? What would the Dems say if one of their own family were killed by an illegal? Their logic is full of holes.

    4. Jayapal spent one weekend on the border in early December where she brought 5 illegal aliens across the border and used the power of her office to start the asylum process for them. The aliens included a woman with child, two juveniles and an alien with serious health issues. She needs to be investigated for abuse of office. Treason for bringing aliens into this country when she knew they had major health issues. She also is guilty of trafficking in illegals. She is another democrat who will get away with her criminal acts because the only protection the people outside her district can get is through ethics investigations. The ethics committees are worthless since they are designed to protect their own.
      It should be pointed out Nanette Barragan (CA-44) and Jimmy Gomez (CA-34) used the power of their office to bring illegals in to start the asylum process the end of December. How do we know they targeted terrorists for entrance into the US?
