After ‘Winning’ Dem Debates, Cory Booker Faces Backlash, Possible Arrest For Escorting Illegal Migrants Across Border

Sharing is caring!

Immediately after last night’s Democratic debate, liberal media pundits were swooning over Cory Booker.

Many claimed that Booker “won” the debate by being the “happy warrior.” CNN certainly loved the performance he turned in.

But they’re singing a different tune today.

That’s because Booker is facing increasing scrutiny over a political stunt he pulled to celebrate Independence Day, when he illegally and personally escorted five migrants across the border with Mexico.

WATCH:

The senator spent 4+ hours speaking w/ the asylum seekers at the Organización Internacional Para Las Migraciones (OIM) in Juárez prior to the border crossing. The action comes following the campaign’s statement to end the border crisis. https://t.co/t3nqwTyyA5 pic.twitter.com/t0AllW6d8B— Andrew Kimmel (@andrewkimmel) July 3, 2019

Keep in mind, this action is in open violation of federal immigration laws.

From BPR:

According to independent reporter Andrew Kimmel, the asylum seekers had been sent back to Mexico after applying for asylum as per the Trump administration’s Migrant Protection Protocols (MMP) program, which mandates that asylum seekers wait in Mexico as their asylum claims are processed. …

In defense of his actions, Booker told Kimmel and a group of other reporters Wednesday that he believes the five asylum seekers were “unjustly denied the ability to present themselves for asylum.”

That was patently false. The fact that they must wait for their asylum claims to be processed isn’t in any way, shape or form equivalent to them being “unjustly denied” the right to apply for asylum. …

What do you think? Should Booker be arrested for violating federal law?

I doubt it will actually happen, but we’ll have to wait and see. Anything could happen.
