GOP Accuses Dems of 'Breach of Decorum' for Bringing Migrant Kids to House Floor in Protest of Trump's Child Separation Policy
House Hispanic Caucus Chairwoman Michelle Lujan Grisha m (D-NM) said caucus members traveled to the southern border to see immigrant families being “terrorized by the most anti-immigrant, xenophobic and racist administration” she's seen.
“I‘m here with two children today to call on this administration to stop this cruel, inhumane practice that betrays who we are as a country,” she said of President Donald Trump's child separation policy resulting in child internment camps. “The president could make the decision to end this practice right now and do the right thing. Failing that, Congress must act."
After Rep. Luis GutiÃ©rrez (D-IL) began to speak, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who was presiding over the floor, shut him down.
“The gentlemen’s time has expired,” she said before adding that the "gentleman is no longer recognized."
She accused GutiÃ©rrez of a "breach of decorum" before banging her gavel and calling for a recess.
