(Jul. 12, 2019) — On Friday morning at 10:00 a.m. EDT, House Oversight & Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD7) convened a hearing on the humanitarian crisis at the southern border encompassing the Trump administration’s purported “child-separation policy.”

C-Span’s caption for the hearing reads, “Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ayanna Pressley (MA), Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Veronica Escobar (TX) were among the witnesses at a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing on child separation policy at the U.S.-Mexico border.”

On Thursday, ranking member Jim Jordan (R-OH4) wrote a letter to Cummings asking that four Republicans from border states be permitted to testify.  At 10:29 a.m. EDT, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ5) is testifying as to his observations of a housing facility for border-crossers.

Biggs took issue with some congressional Democrats’ previous claim that the influx of hundreds of thousands of “migrants” over the last eight months was a “manufactured crisis.”

Rep. Michael Cloud (R-TX27) followed Biggs.

  1. The UniParty (Liberal Left & neverTrump Right) IS the 24/7 crisis in the U.S.A.

    Because of the UniParty, there are now many mountains (impediments to America First) in D.C. that used to be molehills.
