( During a speech to Texas Democrats over the weekend, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) warned that some children were wondering if "the detention squad" is coming for thier parents.

“Somewhere in Texas right now, there is a little girl wondering whether the detention squad is going to take her parents away,” Ellison can be seen telling the gathering in a video posted by the Texas Progressive Caucus.

Ellison also warned Texas Democrats of people threatening to privatize Social Security, wanting to register Muslims, and people getting "roped up" by police.

“Somebody’s son or daughter might have got roped up or even shot by the police,” Ellison said. “Who’s going to be the agent for them?”

“The Democratic Party must be that agent,” Ellison later added.

Ellison is currently running to be the next chair of the Democratic National Committee.
