Texas’ Escobar blames Trump for border crisis


Homestead, FLReps. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-FL) and Veronica Escobar (D-TX) held a press conference shortly after touring the Homestead immigrant detention facility this past weekend, describing the immigrant living conditions they saw, before casting blame on the Trump administration for the current humanitarian border crisis along the U.S. southern border with Mexico.

This was Rep. Mucarsel-Powell’s 7th trip to the children’s detention center, the same facility where she has been turned away on several other occasions.

 Mucarsel-Powell told reporters that even though fewer children are being housed there, “nothing has changed” in regards to the conditions in which the detainees are kept.
