A congresswoman from Ohio took a swipe at U.S. Border Patrol agents on Tuesday, accusing them of committing human-rights violations.

Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) made the accusation during a debate in the House Appropriations Committee on a spending bill for the Department of Homeland Security. She was advocating for a proposed amendment defeated on a party-line vote to shift money from immigration enforcement to the hiring of more customs officers.

Kaptur argued that hiring 500 more U.S. Border Patrol agents, as the Republican bill would do, is unneeded and would harm people seeking asylum

Well, she has immunity from slander lawsuits for thing she says while in the House, but hopefully this was captured on video and can be used during the 2018 campaign.
