Dem Rep. Rashida Tlaib had no answer for ABC’s Martha Raddatz as to why she voted against a bill that would have allocated funding toward providing shelter for unaccompanied minors at the southern border.
Martha Raddatz destroyed Rashida Tlaib's argument: "You voted against the $4.6 billion emergency border bill to deal with the surge of migrants that included almost $3 billion to provide shelter & care for unaccompanied children… Isn't opposing aid contributing to this crisis?" pic.twitter.com/uOYyJJ8R5U

And former UN ambassador Nikki Haley added that Tlaib seems not to really want the crisis to be fixed.
Unreal that Rep. Tlaib complains every chance she gets about the situation on the border yet when given the opportunity to add $4.6 Billion in aid you vote against it?? Shameful.#YouDontReallyWantASolution https://t.co/3jiYlMzqru

When Democrats are pressed on what they have actually done themselves to address the conditions at detention centers along the southern border and the stream of migrants coming across, the answer is the same … a big zero.
Nevertheless, the sanctimony about a problem they refuse to help solve continues with seemingly endless charades and rhetoric.

It’s nice that Democrats are opening their eyes to see the crisis that is the southern border.
It would also be nice if they would actually help do something about it.
