Eye Roll: Hillary Swoops In To Save 'The Children' At The Southern Border

Former Secretary of State and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took to Twitter on Sunday to criticize the conditions taking place on our southern border. She encouraged followers to "chip in" to support various organizations who are "doing critical work to defend the rights of immigrant and refugee children."

The link she posted goes to the Act Blue website, which is frequently used for Democrats' fundraising. This specific fundraiser, according to the link, benefits the following groups:

Al Otro Lado
American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project
Families Belong Together
Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project
Human Rights First
Kids in Need of Defense (KIND)
La Union del Pueblo Entero (LUPE)
Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES)
Texas Civil Rights Project
Women's Refugee Commission

Here's another tweet she shared, blaming Republicans even though Democrats refuse to provide humanitarian aid:

Here's the real question: where was Clinton back in 2014 when the same thing was taking place along our southern border? Where was Clinton when Murrieta, California residents stood up to the Department of Homeland Security and turned away buses of illegal aliens being dumped at short-term detention facilities?

The same exact thing was taking place five years ago. Hundreds of people, primarily women and children, were being stuffed into a short-term processing facility designed to hold a maximum of 25 people. There were no amenities. No showers. One or two toilets. No beds. Just a simple metal bench. 

Border Patrol agents spoke out about what was taken place. The biggest whistleblower, Ron Zermeno, the Health and Safety Director of National Border Patrol Council Local 1613 at the time, brought these atrocities to the national media. He talked about the scabies and various outbreaks taking place. In return, he was placed under a gag order in an attempt to hide exactly what was taking place. Where was Hillary's outrage then?

It's very hypocritical for a leader in the Democratic Party to use what's taking place at the southern border to act as though President Trump is responsible for what's taking place. The reality? This is a monumental, colossal failure that's been brewing for decades. To act like this is something new is not only disgusting but it's political pandering at its finest. Using children for political gain is sick. Shame on you, Hillary.
