Hakeem Jeffries Rips Republicans: ‘Stop Acting Like You’re Part of a Cult’

‘There is no human decency’

JEFFRIES: “The President should be ashamed of himself for using children as political pawns. That has to end this week. So today the House of Representatives will pass a humanitarian aid package in excess of $4.5 billion. We will do it with a strong Democratic vote, but we are urging our colleagues on the other side of the aisle to show some decency, show some strength. Stop acting like you're part of a cult and act like a separate and coequal branch of government that has a responsibility to allocate funds in a humane fashion.”
