Hammer: Reid ‘Detached From Reality’Posted: July 15, 2014
Another nominee for headline of the week…
Krauthammer speculated on Reid’s mental health on “Special Report with Bret Baier” Tuesday night.
Liasson explained that President Obama has always said he “wanted the flexibility to treat kids from Central America the same as Mexico” but never explicitly asked Congress to change the Bush-era 2008 sex trafficking law.
“He wanted Congress to go first,” she said. “People in the base of the Democratic party don’t want this law changed, don’t want these kids sent home faster.”
Liasson brought up the large amount of Hondurans — 15 percent — who are in the U.S. illegally who can no longer cross the border into Mexico because border security is tighter.
“The number of Hondurans who are here, mostly illegally, who can’t go back and forth anymore, because the border actually is a little tighter, that’s also a magnet for these kids.”
