Democrat Minnesota congresswoman Ilhan Omar used her House floor speech Wednesday to promote the plight of migrants from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.
Omar referred to Trump’s “racist and cynical” big wall.
Omar, a Muslim congresswoman from Somalia, called the shutdown over border security a “manufactured crisis.”
“If the president wants to have a real conversation about border security, we are ready to have it,” Omar said, noting that the conversation would include “policies that extend humanity and compassion to migrants and refugees.”
Omar devoted special attention to addressing the situations in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras, as another migrant caravan moves through Guatemala and works up toward the U.S. southern border. (Trump Cuts Off $555 Million To Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador).
Omar and fellow freshmen Democrats Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke as a bloc Wednesday, but members of their own party are looking for an escape route from Nancy Pelosi’s platform of obstructing the building of the wall.
President Donald Trump met with a “Problem Solvers Caucus” from both parties at the White House Wednesday in a Situation Room meeting in which Nancy Pelosi was not present.
The Democrat problem solvers left the door open to “common ground” but still requested that the government re-open before that common ground can be discovered.
Here are what the Democrat problem solvers said about the meeting. The Democrat problem solvers include “Josh Gottheimer, Thomas Suozzi, Vincente Gonzalez, Anthony Brindisi, Dean Phillips, Max Rose, and Abigail Spanberger,” but no Pelosi.
“Over the last weeks, we have been listening to our constituents and speaking with our fellow Members of Congress — in both parties and in both chambers. There is strong agreement across the aisle and around the country: We must reopen the government. Our security, safety, and economy have been compromised, and millions of families are suffering,” the Democrat problem solvers stated.
“There is also strong agreement that if we reopen the government, the possibility exists to work together and find common ground to tackle some of our country’s toughest problems and fix them. But that conversation can only begin in earnest once the government is reopened. We accepted the White House’s invitation to meet today to convey that message,” the Democrat problem solvers said.
Meanwhile, Democrats are looking for ways to play ball with the President.
Democrat congressman Hakeem Jeffries said on the House floor that Democrats “are prepared to have a conversation about infrastructure on the border” and “a conversation about our broken immigration system.”
Jeffries is the latest Democrat to suggest open-mindedness on compromise so long as Democrats can use a different term than “Wall.”
Jeffries said that Democrats are not prepared to have these conversations during President Trump’s supposedly vindictive government shutdown, but they might have no choice.
California Democrat Katie Hill went on Fox News to talk about Democrat openness to “physical barriers,” and Rep. Cheri Bustos expressed openness to a “partial Wall.”
President Trump can build the Wall through the national emergency option, especially considering the fact that the United States has 31 active emergencies declared by Trump and previous presidents, including 11 active emergencies declared by Barack Obama.
Illegal Alien Arrested in the Beating, Torture, and Death of His Nine Year Old Son in Idaho
Erik Osuna is an illegal immigrant.
A man identified by prosecutors as an illegal alien has been arrested in the beating and torture of his own son, with the boy’s stepmother being charged with murder in his death.
Emrik Osuna, a nine year old boy, was discovered starved and covered with bruises at the residence of Erik Osuna-Gutierrez and Monique Osuna. First responders who were summoned to the Meridian, Idaho home later pronounced the boy dead.

Police reports indicate that Monique Osuna has admitted to police that she kicked her stepson in the groin and beat him with various household objects, among them a frying pan, a wooden spoon, a backscratcher, a belt, and even a dog leash. She’s being charged with murder, and Erik Osuna is being charged with felony injury to a child, infliction of great bodily harm and destruction of evidence in the abuse of the child.
The couple allegedly subjected the nine year old boy to a sickening regimen of continual child abuse, such as forcing him to exercise for hours, locking him into a closet, and feeding him starvation rations of water and rice for weeks. Prosecutors are alleging that Erik Osuna allowed the abuse to happen, and that the sick couple only called 911 hours after Emrik Osuna was in severe medical distress.
Idaho prosecutors have identified Erik Osuna as an illegal immigrant, pointing him out as a flight risk in pre-trial bond hearings in the case. They urged a judge to deny Osuna a bond because of his status as an illegal, arguing that he could attempt to flee because he doesn’t have many personal connections in the state.
Both Osunas are being held on $2 million bonds in the Idaho jail system, and neither have entered a plea in response to the charges. Their next court appearance is scheduled for September 17th.
