NYC mayor accused of crossing southern border illegally

Source: The Hill

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has reportedly accused New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) of crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.

The Associated Press reported on Wednesday that the agency made the allegations in a letter obtained by the news service. It claims that de Blasio and his security detail violated Mexican and U.S. immigration laws by crossing the border on foot while the mayor made a visit near El Paso, Texas.

The AP reports that de Blasio's office has denied the charge.

"The mayor crossed the border with the direct approval and under the supervision of the border patrol supervisor at this port of entry,” de Blasio spokesman Eric Phillips said in an email Tuesday night to the AP. “Any suggestion otherwise is a flat-out lie and an obvious attempt by someone to attack the Mayor because of his advocacy for families being ripped apart at the border by the Trump Administration.”

1. ICE coming after American political figures for crossing an imaginary line?

This politicized, militarized out-of-control force has to be dismantled.

A good place to start would be with the removal of the jackass who heads up the Executive Branch.

4. Wait, are they saying this security detail crossed the Rio Grande twice on foot?

That's the US/Mexico border there, and the only way they could have been observed as they "went back into Mexico".

What's the current depth of the Rio Grande?

Seriously, I'm really wondering if they really think we're that level of insane as a country to believe this shit.

I advise against it but "please proceed."
