Dems Continue Their Defense Of MS-13

Mike Reed - May 24, 2018

The Democrat defense of MS-13 gang members continued today.

Rep. Joe Crowley just proclaimed that it was “disgusting” for President Trump to refer to MS-13 gang members as “animals.”

Discussing the violent gang, Crowley stated, “regardless of what they’re about … they’re still human beings.”

This follows other Dem leaders like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and others who rushed to the defense of MS-13 after the President’s comments last week.

Crowley’s statement is especially puzzling because there is no longer confusion, created by the media, about who President Trump was referring to – the “animals” comment is clearly about MS-13 and Crowley is jumping at the chance to push back on that moniker.

It’s a bizarre position to take to defend a gang widely known for dismembering, savagely beating, raping, kidnapping, and murdering its victims.

Dem. Rep. Crowley Defends MS-13 Gang Members, Says They Are Not Animals

 

Transcript:

MSNBC’s ANDREA MITCHELL: What about the President going after Democrats in Long Island on immigration? Let's play a little bit of what he had to say yesterday.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP (CLIP): I noticed recently where Democrats, Nancy Pelosi as an example, are trying to defend MS-13 gang members. I called them animals the other day and I was met with rebuke. They said ‘they're people,’ they're not people. These are animals, and we have to be very, very tough.

MITCHELL: Is he winning this argument against the Democrats?

REP. CROWLEY: He will always have his audience, there's no question about that.

MITCHELL: He's got a bigger megaphone than the Democrats do.

REP. CROWLEY: He does. That's also unfortunate, because what he’s doing, look, we can all agree, to suggest that Nancy Pelosi or any of us do not want to rid our society of MS-13 or any gangs, whether it be foreign born or domestic born, is absolutely outrageous. Outrageous. But he also, with that same brush, paints immigrants, and all immigrants, he’s done this, this is not the first time, he’s done it before, you know, calling any human being an animal, regardless of what they’re about, we want to get rid of them, we want them out of the country, they’re still human beings. They’re still human beings. It's not even dog whispering anymore…dog whistling. It's out and out, open attack on immigrants that this President is talking about and I find that disgusting.
