Rep. Elijah Cummings, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, shouted down acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan over conditions in migrant camps during a hearing on Thursday.

“We’re doing our level best in a challenging —,” McAleenan said before being cut off by Cummings, who went on a two minute rant about border conditions.

The article goes on to state the following:

“What does that mean? What does that mean when a child is sitting in their own feces, can’t take a shower? Come on, man,” Cummings said to McAleenan. “None of us would have our children in that position. They are human beings.”

“I get tired of folks saying, ‘Oh, oh, they just beating up on the Border Patrol. Oh, they just beating up on Homeland Security.’ What I am saying, is I want to concentrate on these children. And I want to make sure that they are OK,” Cummings added. “We are the greatest country in the world. We are the ones that can go anywhere in the world and save people, make sure they have diapers, make sure they have toothbrushes, make sure they’re not laying around defecating in some silver paper.”

“Come on. We’re better than that. And I don’t want us to lose sight of that. When we are dancing with the angels, these children will be dealing with the issues that have been presented to them. How do you say to a two-year-old, ‘Your mother, we can’t find your mother, but we can find her keys. We can find her keys. Got your mama’s keys?’ So, I just think we can do better. And we can go on and on and on, but I’m hoping that we will see some immediate improvements. I just want to see an improvement.”

    Elijah before you have a total mental breakdown have you been to the Border or are you just voicing what people are saying which are lies? Maybe if you would get off your you know what Congress could pass better immigration laws

      The only thing wrong with our immigration laws is that they aren’t enforced. In fact, people like cummings are hell bent against enforcing them at all. Any sanctuary city, state or county that refuses to cooperate with ICE needs to lose ALL federal funding immediately

    I won’t listen to this disgusting POS that he and others have done absolutely nothing to stop the situation at the Border.
    Again why don’t all of you disgusting hypocrites get upset about the Homeless who have children that do not have diapers or 3 meals a day, are living in filth and have no where to live.?
    You talk about Angels, where you and the rest of the Democrats will be looking at Satan’s home.
    These Democrats are the worst hypocrites and never take any responsibility for their actions.

      I don’t understand why the assault on the individuals like McAleenan should be tolerated. They are doing the best they can with the little funds that the Dems finally handed out. They are the ones that have created this crisis situation and yet they have the audacity to accuse the people who live this every day of mistreatment. Where is their outrage for all the children living on the streets! Pack of hypocrites! They disgust me!

    First I ever heard of them sitting in feces. Any proof of that or did AOC come up with that? Maybe he should go down and volunteer to help change diapers.

    Cummings is only show boating for the cameras. He would never go down to the border, too beneath him. They all know it is lies for their voters. Cummins makes me want to puke, same with the four horsemen of the apocalypse.

    Our border patrol are just that. They were not hired and trained to be daycare workers. The parents are the ones responsible for the children being in this predicament!!

    I am damn tired of this despicable pig & all the other pigs that allow this illegal invasion to completely overwhelm all our facilities & all you pigs can do is blame those trying to deal with what the damn politicians/Democrats won’t fix.
    I think everyone should refuse to go to anymore of these hearing & be treated with such appalling disrespect & grandstanding, enough is enough.

    Show DHS the money, if you can’t do that, please sit down and shut the heck up!
    Perhaps you should also take some lessons in the English language so you don’t sound like the ignoramus that you are. This is an example of an elected representative of the people?

    Cummings should quit politics and become a star because he can sure talk bullshit. He was showboating

    Isn’t he and his wife under investigation for improper use of campaign funds?
    May the ranting is a sideshow to distract people from his own difficulties. Odd to complain about things that he and his fellow house members helped create by doing nothing to push for enforcement of our immigration laws.

    No Representative Cummings for months this administration has been saying they need help due to the crises at the border and your party has laughed and said there is no crises at the border! You have fought the Trump administration for every thing they requested and then scream and put blame of the border issues on them. Maybe if the Democrats listened to the person you were SCREAMING at when he asked for more money a few weeks after he was put into that position it would not be as bad as it is! No instead you used all you time going after this administration one thing after another trying every way you can to pin something on him so you can impeach our president! If one plan doesn’t work move on to another and so on and so on! Now that elections are coming up you and your party are now saying there is a crises at the border and blaming it on this administration when your party is the reason it has reached this point. Now as usual Your party is turning the border into a political weapon against this administration. In other words if it was not election time you all would still be ignoring the crises at the border!!
