A top Democrat has upped the ante on the hysterical reaction to the Border Patrol using tear gas to prevent migrants from storming the southern border and is now calling for the United Nations to come to the rescue.
Rep. Barbara Lee of California decried the “atrocity” of the U.S. attempting to protect the border and issued a plea for the blue helmets to march to the rescue.
Not one to be troubled by the inherent conflict of having the global body override the sovereignty of the nation, Lee and her fellow far-left radicals are advocates for a borderless society, unlimited immigration and untold thousands of loyal Democrat voters that could keep them in power for generations to come.
And with President Trump prepared to enforce immigration laws, Lee wants foreign boots on the ground at the border and once that precedent has been established, likely acting as an alternative to domestic law enforcement within the country.
The tear-gassing of women and children at the border is an atrocity. It’s a violation of human rights. And it is a grotesque betrayal of our founding promise, as a nation built by immigrants.

Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California called for United Nations inspectors to be sent to the U.S.-Mexico border to monitor as American agents fired tear gas at women and children trying to cross.
“The tear-gassing of women and children at the border is an atrocity. It’s a violation of human rights. And it is a grotesque betrayal of our founding promise, as a nation built by immigrants,” Lee tweeted on Monday. “I’ve called for @UN inspectors on the border, and I reiterate that call today.”
This isn’t the first time that Lee has demanded United Nations intervention.
The Trump admin is committing human rights abuses in our own country. I sent a letter asking the UN to send observers to investigate the unconscionable separation of families at the border. These detentions are a violation of everything we should stand for. Read my letter ⬇️ pic.twitter.com/zkewC5fSkX
