Congresswoman Helps Caravan Members Breach Border
Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) joined the migrant caravan stranded in Tijuana over the weekend. 

While there, she blamed President Donald Trump for manufacturing the crisis and enabled five asylum seekers to gain access to the United States. 

Per the Washington Free Beacon:
 

"I was able to successfully assist 5 asylum seekers – 2 unaccompanied minors, a mother and her 9-year-old child, and a young man with a serious medical condition – into the United States," she wrote in a tweet.

 

The five people she assisted were initially denied entry.

"Initially they were denied, in violation of U.S. and international law, but I was able to intervene and ensure that they could simply present themselves for asylum in the United States," she said in a follow-up tweet.

 

Before she went to the border, Jayapal blasted Trump for "lying" about the caravan and creating a crisis for his own political benefit.
