(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Kat Cammack (R-Fla.) gave a first-hand account of what she saw during a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border, specifically seeing young girls screaming so loud their vocal chords gave out because they had been gang raped.
Speaking to Fox News’s “The Story with Martha MacCallum” on Thursday, Cammack said that the way the Trump administration handled the border “was the most humane, compassionate and normal way” of handling illegal immigration and “for putting Americans first, our national security first.”
“Just 24 hours ago, I was there in Mission, Texas, and I saw first-hand young girls under the age of 10 that had been gang-raped. They had been screaming so loud that their vocal cords had given out. This is a humanitarian crisis, and I can't even in good conscience call President Biden president. I have to call him trafficker-in-chief, because these kids are being trafficked,” the congresswoman said.
“And the fact that my Democrat colleagues won't even call this a situation that is a crisis. They have to call it anything but. It's a challenge. It’s a situation. It's not an emergency in their book. It’s a situation,” Cammack said.
“When you have 20,000 children in custody and our Border Patrol agents are stretched thin to the max, and we’re watching cartel members taunt our Border Patrol agents as they’re sending these children under 6 years old across the river by themselves, this is a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions, and so let's call it what it is,” she said.
“Beyond that, we need to reinstate the MPP, the Migrant Protection Protocol. We need to extend Title 45. These are all things that are going to help our Border Patrol agents on the ground and actually deliver a humane response to this crisis that’s unfolding. That's where we can start,” the congresswoman said.
