‘This is America — it isn’t Moscow’: Watch angry lawmakers demand entrance to New Jersey ICE detention center

Published

on

A group of angry lawmakers from New York and New Jersey went to an immigrant processing center in Elizabeth, New Jersey demanding answers on Sunday.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility separated the ICE staff and lawmakers with plexiglass that they promptly banged on demanding to see a supervisor.

“Alright, this is phase two,” a gray-haired lawmaker can be overheard saying, though his face is never seen.

The staffer then taped pieces of white paper on the plexiglass to block her face from the cameras.

“You did wrong. You were doing fine up until now. Now you did wrong. What is — this is America. This isn’t Moscow!” he shouted into the office behind the barrier.

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) is seen telling an officer that they’ve been waiting all morning and demanded to be let inside. The officer then tells the men they have to wait longer and they might be let inside. That didn’t sit well with Nadler, who demanded entrance immediately.

But we will WIN!” with obvious disgust.

James Clyburn schools Trump over ‘lynching’ tweet: ‘I’m a product of the South — I know the history of that word’

Published

Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) on Tuesday schooled President Donald Trump for accusing House Democrats of "lynching" him through their impeachment inquiry.

After CNN host John Berman read Clyburn the president's tweet and asked him for his opinion, the congressman accused the president of being deliberately inflammatory in order to distract from his own actions.

"The president has also been pretty loose with his words, and this is another indication of that," he said. "I really believe this man is prone to inflammatory statements and that is one word no president ought to apply to himself."

Entire staff in Trump’s chaotic White House ‘on thin ice’: NYT’s Haberman

Published

Appearing on CNN's "New Day," New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman addressed Donald Trump's threat to "terminate" the Times and revealed that White House aides are under the gun as the president's impeachment grows nearer.

Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, Haberman a was asked about Trump's Monday threat to terminate the New York Times -- believed to mean the White House would be canceling its subscription -- and deadpanned that the venerable newspaper would probably survive the economic hit.

Host Camerota then asked about the status of embattled acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney who suffered a rough week after a disastrous press conference appearance and an equally disastrous Fox News interview.
