Rep. Collins BLASTS Dems for endless cycling of same ‘immigration witnesses’ — but NO bills are forthcoming

By Jon Dougherty

(NationalSentinel) Republicans in Congress who are supportive of POTUS Donald Trump’s efforts to secure the border, build a wall, and close asylum loopholes are becoming increasingly frustrated with House majority Democrats who parade the same witnesses from immigration-related federal agencies time and time again without actually introducing legislation to address the problems.

One of them — Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) vented his angst last week, challenging Democrats to either put up or shut up when it comes to the issue.

At a hearing of the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday titled “Oversight of Family Separation and U.S. Customs and Border Protection” — which was really just another opportunity for Democrats to bash U.S. immigration officials and the Trump administration, hence the hearing’s title — Collins ignored his prepared statement and instead chastised Democrats for their failure to meaningfully address the situation.

Collins, the panel’s Ranking Member, began reading from his remarks before putting his paper down and saying, “Look, I’m gonna stop. I’m not going to read this.” Instead, he proceeded to recount how the Democrat-controlled committee, along with others in the House, are doing nothing but staging political theater on behalf of their far-Left faction when it comes to border security.

“You know what is dehumanizing?” Collins asked, responding to a statement made earlier by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), who complained about the administration’s border enforcement policies. “Continuing to bring the same witnesses or the same people from the same agencies to talk about this over and over and over again. What’s dehumanizing is doing that and not doing anything about it.”

“My Democratic colleagues have ideas. I may disagree with those ideas, but put a bill up!” Collins continued. “I have a bill. Put mine up. Make amendments to it. Do whatever you want to do. That’s what Congress is supposed to do.”

Collins continued to lambast Lofgren, taking her to task over her remarks that the White House isn’t “competent and capable” enough to deal with the immigration/migrant crisis, noting that “what a competent and capable [House] majority would do is actually put a bill forward.”

“We’re having ‘bash the administration’ time, ‘bash the president’ time — that’s all this is,” he went on.

Collins also referred to Lofgren’s remarks saying the Trump administration was not “competent and capable” in dealing with the crisis by saying that “what a competent and capable [House] majority would do is actually put a bill forward.”

“And the folks in this audience, I’m glad you’re here; we’re trying to work on a problem, but don’t accept another hearing,” Collins said. “Accept some answers; accept some bills being put forward. Don’t be fooled again.”

He also had a message for the witnesses who were again called by Democrats to ‘testify.’

“No offense to our witnesses,” Collins went on. “We’ve heard your statements already before. So I don’t know what’s going to move us this time that didn’t move us last time.

“This is becoming, unfortunately, a committee of press releases,” Collins went on. “Dehumanizing is taking people you say you care about but doing nothing for them. That’s dehumanizing!”

It’s been obvious for some time that Democrats have become the “open borders” party and are not serious at all about ‘fixing’ legal loopholes or improving up border security.
