Director of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen is testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee today, and Sen. Dick Durbin is already serving up liberal spin at every turn. Get a load of this one:
During the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on human smuggling and illegal immigration, Dick Durbin just blamed violence in Mexico and Central America and the current border crisis on the U.S. because we don't have enough gun control.

Durbin said that violence south of the border is because of lax gun laws north of the border:
GAO found 70% of crime guns seized in Mexico & traced by ATF originated in the US. But CBP says it only conducts outbound inspections “when resources permit.” Why on earth doesn’t the President request more resources to stop the iron river of guns arming cartels to the teeth?

Is anything ever NOT going to be the fault of the U.S.?
I'm sure the cartels are all just victims in this.

Oh yeah, that makes sense. Let's limit guns here so they can kill us more easily. He needs to go peddle his lunacy somewhere else. https://t.co/1SBEYXt80D

There is likely no way to verify this number but it would seem that Fast & Furious was way more successful than anyone knew if these numbers do hold up. No scandal under Obama? Yeah right. https://t.co/9d8mCzGPvD
