Friday on CNN’s The Lead, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) said she believed Fox News was “disgusting” for calling babies “illegal” while pointing to immigrants getting formula stockpiles from the government amid nationwide baby formula shortage.
Anchor Jake Tapper said, “I want to give you an opportunity to respond to one of the criticisms we’re seeing on the right in conservative media and Republican politicians focusing on images from the border that show there is formula available to processing centers for undocumented immigrants.”
Jayapal said, “I found it disgusting. I would never call a baby illegal, and this apparently comes from the party that says they’re pro-life, pro-family. Didn’t want to fund the child tax credit so millions of kids could come out of poverty. Don’t want to provide child care, don’t want to provide paid leave, family leave.”
False. Jayapal is a liar and a demagogue. She went on to demonize Republicans further without explaining why pallets of baby formula should be shipped to illegal aliens at the border when American citizens are facing a shortage.
She added, “I don’t need to be lectured by people who won’t even stand up for the children that are right here and then use a crisis like this to again do what they have always done, demonize immigrants. It’s just ridiculous.”
It is Jayapal who is not standing up for the children who are right here, the children of American citizens whom “America Last” Democrats like Jayapal de-prioritize.
