Mitchell Blows Up at ICE Director Blaming Parents for Coming to Country Illegally

‘The parents are to be blamed for breaking the law?’


MITCHELL: "Joining me now is NBC’s Gabe Gutierrez and Washington Post political reporter Eugene Scott. Gabe, I was watching that. I don’t know how you kept your cool. Because the parents are to be blamed for breaking the law? First of all, there was no enforcement, discernible enforcements against the employers. The timing of the raid has been questioned. The insensitivity of proceeding with the raid the same day as the El Paso visit by the President to comfort a terrorized Hispanic community after what happened in El Paso just days earlier. And yes, he’s a law enforcement officer, but why didn’t they contact Mississippi child services in advance? Why didn’t they bring in HHS?"
