Couldn’t have happened to a better bunch.
Too bad they couldn’t incarcerate them with the other illegals.
What goes around; comes around.
Dem Staffers? They were probably throwing rappelling ropes over the wall! *SPIT*
Cummings needs to send some staff to his district to check on American citizens living conditions. Why doesn’t he care about them?
The Baltiomoron from the rat infested sixth district.
He better get his own house in order.
