Robert Menendez, Luis Gutierrez And Hilda Solis Had No Idea About Trouble At The U.S.-Mexico Border

Okay, say whatever you want about the trouble the Republican Party is in, but this goes beyond pathetic. Three Democrats admit that they did not know there was trouble brewing on the U.S. border with Mexico.

From Dr. Bobby Eberle at GOPUSA:

Three Democrat legislators spoke to reporters about what they claim is “anti-immigrant coverage” by conservative media outlets. Apparently, they think floods of illegal aliens crossing into America and the crime and violence at the border are just overblown incidents developed by conservatives to attack our neighbor to the South.

After they spoke, the Democrats were asked if they realized that the State Department had issued a “travel alert warning Americans about military-like ‘combat’ along the southern U.S. border in Mexico, where Americans are being kidnapped and murdered.” None of the legislators knew about it.

Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) said, “I haven’t heard about the report specifically.”

Reps. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and Hilda Solis (D-CA) also spoke to Cybercast News Service and said “they had no knowledge of the travel alert but were aware of the volatility along the U.S. southern border.”

Volatility? Americans are being killed and yet all these liberals want to do is pander! The State Department alert states that “violent criminal activity fueled by a war between criminal organizations struggling for control of the lucrative narcotics trade continues along the U.S.-Mexico border.” Although the alert states that the attacks are primarily aimed at “members of drug trafficking organizations, Mexican police forces, criminal justice officials, and journalists,” the alert goes on to state that “foreign visitors and residents, including Americans, have been among the victims of homicides and kidnappings in the border region.”

And these three claim that they weren’t aware of it.

Someone please remind me, which party is out of touch?
