Once again, a 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris looks beyond the enforcing of American law and pulls on the heartstrings of Americans by calling this past week’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids in Mississippi a “campaign of terror.”
The California candidate for the Oval Office said that the raids were meant to scare immigrants and their families, which is hilarious because once again, Harris, didn’t add the word “illegal” to that sentence.
On Sunday, Harris appeared on NBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet the Press. This week, Harris was dealt a huge blow in the national polls as her campaign is seen to be losing ground after the second round of debates.
Todd: “Believe it or not, law enforcement told us that they had to be intentionally vague about the companies that were, quote, raided. Explain to me — you were a prosecutor. Why were the workers targeted and not the companies?” Todd asked.
Harris: “The employers have to be responsible. They have to do whatever is required by law. But there’s another point here, Chuck, which is that this administration has directed DHS to conduct these raids as part of what I believe is this administration’s campaign of terror. Which is to make whole populations of people afraid to go to work,”
“Children are afraid to go to school for fear that when they come home, their parents won’t be there,” she continued.
Todd: “Can he say anything at this point to reassure Hispanic Americans?”
Harris: “I don’t think it would be authentic if he did. I think people are smart enough to know that. There’s an old saying, judge me by my actions, not my words. His actions have been to divide, to vilify, to do what is contrary to who we are as Americans.”
