DHS secretary panics under questioning from Kamala Harris: We do not ‘detain’ children, we ‘care for them’

10 Oct 2018 at 11:19 ET
.............................

At a Senate hearing on Thursday, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) suggested that DHS had violated federal statutes by detaining children longer than is legally allowed.
....................................

..........................................

“How do you reconcile the IG report with your testimony this morning?” Harris pressed.

“We do not detain children,” Nielsen insisted. “What we do is, when we apprehend them at a border patrol station, we process them. And as soon as there is room in an HHS facility, we transfer them.”

“So does the processing involve detention?” Harris wondered.

“It’s not a detention facility!” Nielsen exclaimed.

“Do they stay in CPB custody? Do they spend the night there?” the California senator tried again, appearing annoyed.

“We are not able to, under the law, put them anywhere else,” Nielsen replied. “So, we will care for them until bed space opens at a detention facility at HHS.”

“In other words, you do detain children,” Harris remarked.....................

1. I swear every time I hear from Sen. Harris, I think even more highly of her

She does not take any bullshit. She is tough as nails. I love having her on our side!

4. Agreed!

She is doing a very fine job as a Senator, for that I am very thankful. Senator Franken was excellent at cross examination of hearing subjects. When he got “resigned” I feared that was lost but she is very good at pinning people down and getting answers. Given her back ground that is not surprising but what she did vs. what she is doing now are two very different arenas.

10. The comparison to Al Franken was unfortunate

She’s partly responsible for him being gone. Personally that reminds me of that baggage she carries.

23. I did not see her.

Doing that....my mistake, because looking back in Google clearly she did. I saw Sen. Gillibrand making comments but not Sen. Harris. That’s unfortunate. Thank you.

20. She's pretty doggone spectacular.

I watched her calm, controlled, clear-eyed questioning of Kavanaugh as he frantically and furiously danced around the room. Flapping and almost literally foaming at the mouth. I wonder how much spit flew from his mouth as he yowled and bellowed.

Meanwhile she stayed as cool as a cucumber. Impressive. And magnificent. Glad she’s on our side!

3. They need

to lock Nielsen up. How can they look at themselves in a mirror. People are abusing these children. There was a thread here.

12. They don't need

to "lock her up" - they just need to "process" her!

See how she would choke on her own BULLSHIT!!!!!

That can't be too hard to understand.

7. Next powerful microscope should be named after Sen Harris

There’s going to be a microscope turned on over this most corrupt administration in U.S. history.

Blue Wave is coming.

18. And she's just playing word games here.

What has happened to these children while in "processing" is a human rights violation. I can't believe the UN is NOT investigating this for what it is - an atrocity.

22. I'm starting to warm up to the idea as well!

Im a little uncertain of her foreign policy chops and some of her policy positions but she's really impressed me since joining judiciary.

16. Neilsen is a disgrace to her Danish heritage

Danes are some of the most generous, open minded people on earth. I remember when a visitor from Denmark almost got arrested for leaving her kiddie in a stroller outside a restaurant while she ate. Told the cops it was done in her country all the time so the kids could get some sun while they napped. No one there would ever think of harming a child and no one ever did.

Meanwhile, Neilsen is jailing toddlers.

19. She should have been fired for simple incompetence. No system in place for children?

No sorting system or tracking system? She should not be managing a KMart store much less DHS a cabinet level position.

26. I absolutely love her tenacity in dealing with these criminals (GOP). I'd support her in a second.

I'd take her over Bloomberg anytime. I think Kamala is one of us.

29. She can keep telling herself that they are not being detained,

but the chain link fences and bars say otherwise.
