You would think that a United States Senator would know that crossing the U.S. Border illegally would mean that it's illegal to cross the border illegally. Unfortunately, she had to be told by an ICE official that she had no idea what she was talking about.
Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) looked bewildered as she started telling the ICE official, “"They have broken a law but only as deemed so by the president with his…” she began to say.
That’s when she was cut off abruptly. "No ma’am," Albence said, stopping the Senator in her tracks. "They are there for violation of Title 8 of the U.S. Nationality Act. Okay. U.S.C. 1325. That’s illegal entry is both a criminal and civil violation. They are in those FRCs pending the outcome of that civil immigration process. They have broken the law."
That's when she stared blankly like she was just told Santa Clause wasn't real. Then she uttered the words, "I'M CONFUSED." Indeed you are.
It seems that she legitimately believed that President Donald Trump was the one who made it illegal to cross an international boundary into America improperly. She had no idea that this actually broke federal immigration laws.
We almost... almost, feel bad for her.
Watch the BRUTAL moment below.
You're not alone if you think she's dumb. Twitter wasn't kind to her either
"When your head is filled with talking points and someone speaks the truth......."I'm confused". Lord help us! #VoteIntelligently" said Grace.
Lorrie blasted her saying, "Really? Someone who doesn’t understand our laws can be a senator!!!"
When something is this crazy using sarcasm is always a good way to go. "I'm confused. What you're saying here is...breaking the law is illegal?" Rowen said with a smirk.
Perhaps Kathryn Jolene said it best, "You can’t fix stupid."
