Rep. Raja : ‘Perhaps’ Acosta Will Resign Before Testify Before Congress | MTP Daily | MSNBC
Congressman Raja krishnamoorthi Illinois sits on the house oversight, committee Congress and good to see you again. Sir republican from the panhandle of Florida describe the conditions frankly in ways that I’ve heard many Democrats describe the conditions of many border facilities, and so now we are totally unacceptable. But it still seems to me that it’s a it’s finger-pointing first well, that was appropriated last week, are week before the 4.6 billion dollars, in the way that it was intended named way to alleviate the situation of overcrowding and improved facilities on the border. And secondly, and very important beef up the money that’s given to HHS so that they can place these children in long-term, suitable shelters and get them the heck out of these temporary detention facilities On the Border. They have no business being there. In the first time, your child welfare long-term shelters, what is France at 8? We have the money appropriated. What this is the part where the disconnect, I think it’s frustrating to watch for starters if they’re treated. I didn’t like the comment that was made by DHS at this behavior that was reported weather was sexual abuse, or these unsafe and unsanitary conditions missions, don’t align quote-unquote with their principal at their wrongful and should be prosecuted right now to the to the extent that people Are actually committing these wrongful acts in those pasilla stop today, and then the money has to be used in the future to improve those facilities long-term. What these migrants are willing to put up with to get here. Do we now realize how bad the situation isn’t? Central America and pulling out of Central America was the the bigger mistake. Yes, sir myself, I came here as a three-month-old boy and you know I look at these people and I say there, but for the grace of God go, I they are fleeing violence, they’re playing economically deprivation in these Northern track. Northern lateral countries in Central America named wait, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, and we are cutting off humanitarian assistance to these countries. At the same time that we are trying to deal with these people on the border, and so we should be resuming assistance, we should be trying to help these countries right now at the source of the problem, not making conditions worse by cutting off your turn assistant. What’S the biggest question answer dear committee next week that the conditions were as bad as they are and does he changes enhancer in light of what we’ve learned and then, secondly, what is he going to do right now to improve those conditions and how is it going To make sure that the money that was appropriate is appropriated is spent wisely. What’S the timeline for spending that money metrics for success in 10 days, 2 weeks, a month, two months and so forth, let me move to another Jeffrey Epstein oversight committee. You think you’ll get them well resign before that I’ve asked for, and I’ve called for his resignation along with a lot of my colleagues and perhaps if he does, maybe then he won’t show up, but if he’s still in office at that time, he has to show Up he has to answer for his conduct. One thing that one of my colleagues pointed out today, Katherine Clark, who questioned him at a Appropriations subcommittee hearing the human sex African program within the Department of Labor by 80 %. Why did he do that? I think it’s fair and it’s it’s a it’s something that, unfortunately, is a pattern with this Administration and Donald Trump, reprehensible amen are reprehensible, and this is something that I hope others, including Republicans, take another look at to decide whether this is the direction we should be Going in closed-door meeting with the Democratic caucus well, I think that she would prefer to hear complaints or comments, or you know constructive criticism. Personally, I’m not going judge other people’s communication style. I just think to effectively deal with a source of concern. They might be good to engage with that person or persons directly and then see how to improve the situation.
