Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro went scorched earth over the weekend and tore into the 7 Republicans in Congress who she said “betrayed” the American people.
During a segment Saturday night on her Fox News program, Pirro noted that House Democrats passed a massive amnesty bill for illegal aliens and that 7 Republicans helped them by voting in favor of it.
“They surge through our borders because they know we are powerless to enforce our laws. We give them busses to get to get over the entire United States,” Pirro began.
“We give them courts and lawyers and food and housing before they even get there. Those who respectfully wait their turn and get a Visa and come here legally who want to learn our history and want to skrimp and save, they have to pay for their own lawyer while the illegals get them for free,” she added.
Pirro continued, “As they surge our borders with numbers increasing day by day. Last month 144,000, the highest number in more than a decade.”
Pirro then dropped the hammer.
“A signal to illegals not only will they let you in and pay for food, housing, education, medical and travel, but sooner or later they will give you amnesty after thee release you into the interior providing another incentive for illegals to cross,” the Fox host declared.
“These Republicans supported the Democrat effort that provided no resolution to the crisis at the border,” she said, naming the 7 Republicans who “betrayed” the nation.
“Congress ought to be fired for forcing this president to negotiate with a foreign power to solve a national immigration crisis our own government won’t solve,” she said.
“And now as he negotiates with Mexico, they do nothing, while illegal immigrants continue to set records day-by-day crossing the border, knowing they’ll be released to disappear,” Pirro said.
She added: “It all comes down to one thing, the strength of the president to again defy the odds, the naysayers and the doubters. This is Donald Trump’s moment in history. And I for one believe in the man and moment. So should you.”
Last week, the Democratic-controlled House passed the “American Dream and Promise Act of 2019” on a 237-187 roll call.
The bill provides permanent status with a path to citizenship to DREAMers as well as Temporary Protected Status or Deferred Enforced Departure recipients.
The bill — which will undoubtedly fail in the Republican-controlled Senate — does not address the border crisis, for which DHS has been begging Congress for help.
Which is why it is so perplexing that these 7 Republicans joined in favor of this bill.
- Congressman Don Bacon (R-NE)
- Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL)
- Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA)
- Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX)
- Congressman Dan Newhouse (R-WA)
- Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ)
- Congressman Fred Upton (R-MI)
While President Donald Trump is trying to secure the border, House Democrats are trying to ensure millions of illegal aliens can stay in the country.
