However, the headline is misleading, and may be a lie. If Lee already knew about these task forces, the article should have stated when she first learned about them. Otherwise, she wasn’t “reminded.” Just “told.” Which is not unusual. That’s the whole point of bringing the Executive Branch in to talk....to get information.

 

Maybe she was told before.  Maybe not. Conservatives (including the Daily Caller) focus on trying to make a congressperson look stupid instead of trying to save children’s lives.

 

Who’d you rather be? Someone who spoke inartfully but who is trying to save kids’ lives? Or someone who tries to humiliate them?

 

It isn't a matter of inartful. it is a matter of showboating and attacking the Administration without bothering to get the facts. she has done it before. And it has nothing to do with Conservatives.

No one has to try when it comes to Sheila Jackson Lee.  She comes to it  honestly.  She thinks she is another Barbara Jordan who represented the same district.  Houston lost one of their best congressional representatives when she passed away, an outstanding lady.

Well, Kid are you going to say "you authored" the article? Don't even try to claim credit. I know that Western Journal revealed it as did the Daily Caller.

 

And when you come right down to it - who authored it is the important thing, not the whackadoodle who said it.

SHEILA JACKSON LEE DEMANDS ‘INTERNAL TASK FORCE’ TO INVESTIGATE CHILD DEATHS — THEN SHE WAS REMINDED

SHEILA JACKSON LEE DEMANDS ‘INTERNAL TASK FORCE’ TO INVESTIGATE CHILD DEATHS — THEN SHE WAS REMINDED IT ALREADY EXISTS

 

 

Texas Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee demanded there be an “internal” DHS task force to investigate child migrant deaths, but then was informed that such an entity already exists.

 

“I believe there should be an internal task force set up dealing with children, dealing with children’s death,” Jackson Lee said Wednesday during a House Homeland Security hearing. She was speaking to Kevin McAleenan, the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). “My question to you is: Will you set up an internal in-house task force to deal with … these deaths, to find what solutions should be put in place?”

 

The acting DHS secretary then informed Jackson Lee that the task force she was describing already exists within the department.

 

“We already have internal task forces working these issues,” McAleenan responded. In response, Jackson Lee asked for the names of the individuals involved because Americans are “outraged.”

The exchange follows the death of a 16-year-old Guatemalan migrant who passed away while in Border Patrol custody.

 

The Guatemalan boy was apprehended on May 13 for illegally crossing the U.S. border near Hidalgo, Texas. He was diagnosed with the flu and prescribed medicine Sunday after telling medical staff he didn’t feel well. However, he was found unresponsive by Monday morning while in the Weslaco Station in Texas.

 

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

The dimms should be so proud...  Their TDS prevents them from doing their job.
