Rep. Escobar won’t deny staff was in Mexico helping migrants.
Escobar said that the “fabricated story” or “hit piece” written about her has resulted in death threats made against her and her legislative office, was fueled by “xenophobia and misinformation.”
“The @dcexaminer has published a fabricated story resulting in death threats against me and my staff,” stated Escober on Twitter “This hit piece is fueled by xenophobia and misinformation.”

Escobar then targeted the story’s author, Anna Giaritelli, prompting Giaritelli to respond by pointing to the fact that neither Escobar or her office have denied the allegations they have “been going into a foreign country interviewing hundreds if not thousands of people returned to Mexico.
“Migrants are showing up at the international border crossing in El Paso with constituent forms from Escobar’s office,” said Giaritelli “She calls my report absurd but won’t deny her staff have been going into a foreign country interviewing hundreds if not thousands of people returned to Mexico.”
Escobar still has not denied the allegations.
The illegal immigration crisis continues at the southern border with Mexico, as more and more illegal aliens seeking asylum continue to flood the region.
Detention centers operated by U.S. Border Patrol and the Dept. of Homeland Security are beyond capacity, making the crisis that much more critical.
