House Republicans demand details on MYSTERY trips to Mexico by Oversight Democrats…

House Oversight Democrats want to investigate Trump for corruption, but now their own deeds are drawing suspicious from Republicans on their committee:

FOX NEWS – Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are calling on their Democratic colleagues to provide more details about a series of trips taken to Mexico while staff were touring border detention facilities, amid reports that at least one Democrat has been involved in “coaching” migrants there on how to exploit U.S. immigration law.

In a letter to Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., obtained by Fox News, ranking member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said there were at least two committee staff trips into Mexico in August — one of which required Border Patrol agents to provide a special escort back into the U.S.

Specifically, Jordan highlighted a report that said Rep. Veronica Escobar, D-Texas, was in attendance on one trip to Tijuana on Aug. 21. Escobar, who is not on the Oversight Committee, has been a vocal advocate of left-wing policies on illegal immigration.

According to The Washington Examiner, staff from Escobar’s office recently coached migrants in Ciudad Juarez on how to exploit federal immigration law — including telling would-be border crossers to pretend they cannot speak Spanish to exploit a loophole that would let them enter the U.S.

Escobar responded by calling the article “fabricated” and “fueled by xenophobia and misinformation.”



Jim Jordan accused Democrats of trying to “delegitimize” Trump’s border efforts in his letter to his colleagues on the Oversight Committee:

“Although you have the authority to direct Committee staff to travel internationally on official committee business, you have not explained why you authorized this travel into Mexico or what you sought to learn through these trips,” Jordan wrote, adding that Republicans were not notified of the trips.

Jordan went on to accuse Democrats of seeking “to delegitimize the administration’s border security efforts and vilify the men and women who protect our border.” He said GOP members are concerned the trips “could continue to result in misleading information about the administration’s border security efforts.”

In the letter, Jordan asked Democrats a number of questions including what the purpose of the visit was, which individuals and groups they interacted with, why Escobar’s office was invited, and what “coaching” on immigration laws, if any, was given to migrants.

It wouldn’t surprise me one bit that Democrats were trying to coach migrants in Mexico on how to game our system. They did it here weeks ago for illegals when the administration’s ICE raids were announced.

  1. It’s clear to me, that Democrats are willing to undermine the laws of the country. These laws were to protect our

    sovereignty as a nation. To protect American citizens from unwelcome and criminal influences, such as drug trafficking, human trafficking, sexual exploitation of children, and illegal entry into the country. There is no benefit to the American public to have our law makers do their own thing. There is no law that gives them the right to do what ever they want, and they certainly don’t have the right to spend our money on unlawful activity, that undermines our laws. This type of activity always makes one wonder, are these lawmakers that engage in such activity, getting paid under the table, because they sure aren’t doing it for humanitarian reasons.

  2. A law needs to be passed that states that anyone who is convicted of illegal voting will lose their voting rights. Any illegal voting gets prison time and deported permanently from the USA.

  3. Come now, Elijah likes those pinatas with the mexican candy. They were just in Mexico to get a few pinatas for Elijah..keep walking!

  4. Corrupt Democrats know very well that a Republican Congress led by Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy will never hold them accountable. Glad Jim Jordan is speaking up. Too bad Republican leaders won’t support him.

  5. Of course Democrats are coaching immigrants on how to lie and break the law. Lawyers paid for by Soros and others were available up and down all the caravans from central America prepping illegals on how to evade the law and exploit loopholes originally designed to help people actually facing persecution.

    Major, well-financed organizations were sending tons of money to organize the caravans, pay for staff, rent vehicles, etc. …as far as we know, nothing was ever done about this. I always thought helping somebody break the law makes it a conspiracy and/or there were other charges. Why can’t they be treated as human-traffickers? That’s what they’re doing when they aid and abet people crossing illegally.

    That’s what the Fake Mexican did — he allowed his staff is misdirect campaign donations to facilitate human trafficking.

    Meanwhile, what about all the gates in the border wall being locked open around El Paso?

    The IWBC claims they only locked open the one gate where the We Build The Wall section was built, blocking access to some lame mile marker. Who locked open all the other gates in the El Paso area? Are they still locked open? If so, why?

    Has Jim Jordan or anybody else tried to investigate this?

  6. I hope Jim Jordan continues to not only push Cummings on this issue, but also takes his issue to every camera and media outlet he can find.

    To quote the dip*** Biden, “This is a big ***** deal.”

  7. In the past 2.5 years Mexican Drug / Human Smuggling Cartels have given $700+ million to democrats and leftwing causes. . . . In exchange for what???? Come-on, take a wild guess. . . Yep, keep the border open, otherwise they are out of business

  8. Of course “Democrats were trying to coach migrants in Mexico on how to game our system.” They have been doing it for years.
