Dem Senator Tries to Enter Immigrant Detention Center — He Was Denied And Has a Meltdown

Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) attempted to enter an immigration detention center in Homestead, Florida, on Friday in order to speak with some of the immigrant children housed there.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and state Rep. Kionne McGhee (D) accompanied Nelson to the center, where 1,000 kids are reportedly being held.

Surrounded by members of the media, their attempt to enter the facility was unsuccessful as the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said they were not allowed to go in.

On social media and in a press conference, Nelson accused HHS of “hiding something”:

“The American people deserve to see the cruel way the Trump administration is treating children,” Wasserman Schultz posted to her Twitter account.

Over the weekend, several congressional Democrats entered a detention center in New Jersey, refusing to leave until they met with the immigrants held there. At one point, the lawmakers even refused to close a door.

    Senator Bill Nelson…why did you really visit the facilities. You knew you were going to be denied entry. Just a show for your constituents for the coming elections. My questions to all these politicians and actors, if so worried and compassionate about the well being of these kids and
    “illegal”… then why has it taken you this long to do something about it. Separation of parents and their kids have been going on for more than 20 years and now is when you are making a stink about it. Or is it because this president is finally doing something about the illegals and I should remind you, the laws you passed, he is abiding by. The media can play on the heartstrings of the uninformed and those that hate the president, but they don’t fool those that think clearly and see through your “career” saving ways. Using circumstances that were brought about your laws to deflect from the true problem we are having with the illegals. And I will go one step further to say, the media is making a big deal and lying to the public (as usual) to deflect from the Mueller Investigation and Hillary Clinton corruption!
