VIDEO: Rep Gil Cisneros “We’re Basically Trying to Push Our Problem to the Mexican Government”

At the end of a trip to the southern border by a group of congressional representatives, Rep Gil Cisneros of Fullerton, CA spoke to Channel 9 News in El Paso.

Channel 9 reported:

“U.S. Rep. Gil Cisneros (D-California), said the visit made him realize that “we’re basically trying to push our problem to the Mexican government.” He was referring to the Migrant Protection Protocol program that makes thousands of asylum seekers wait for their day in court not in El Paso, but in Mexico.”

Not agreeing that Mexico should share in the burden of hardening the border is a pretty radical position to take for Cisneros who represents CD39 in Northern Orange County.

Another example of Cisneros being out of touch with his own district.
