Wednesday at a House Homeland Security Committee hearing, Rep. Al Green told Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen that the treatment of illegal border crossers and their families “is about color.”
“I was at the border, I saw those babies locked up on top of each other. We would not treat animals— the humane society wouldn’t allow it, the way those babies were treated,” Green said.
“There are those who believe that we already have too many people of color in this country… White babies would not be treated the way these babies of color are being treated, madam secretary. This is about color.”
