Democrats decided to take a number of trips down to Mexico in August and there are disturbingly few details available the visits. Their staff was also busy touring ICE detention facilities with rumors spreading that some of them were informing migrants how to exploit US immigration legislation. This wouldn’t be the first time Democrats would have aided others to circumvent American law.
Rep. Susie Lee (D-NV) believes that the tours given of detention facilities were “whitewashed” to show favorable conditions. She even called for ICE to be more transparent and to be held accountable for the actions. ICE, of course, is doing its job to protect America’s border while being held accountable by the Trump administration.

Rep Jim Jordan (R-OH) is attempting to get to the bottom of these Mexican visits. Jordan and other Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are asking for their Democratic counterparts to provide more detail on these “mystery trips.”
Although you have the authority to direct Committee staff to travel internationally on official committee business, you have not explained why you authorized this travel into Mexico or what you sought to learn through these trips.
-Rep. Jim Jordan
We’re with Jordan, we’d like to know what exactly was going on down there! Don’t you?
