It’s hardly a secret that leftists love the idea of open borders and letting illegal immigration run amok.

It’s also a well-established fact that Democrats typically harbor a seething hatred of all things related to President Donald Trump and will stoop to any depth to needle the president.

But it takes a certain level of brazenness, even for a leftist Democrat, to boast about personally helping and bringing members of the migrant caravan across the border just to stick it to Trump.

U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal, a Washington Democrat, apparently has that kind of brazenness.

The 53-year-old Jayapal bragged on her Twitter account about helping migrants get into the United States after they had previously been denied entry.

“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,” Jayapal wrote on Twitter.

So, to recap: A United States congresswoman is bragging to the public about bringing in two minors who will inevitably end up in the foster care system, as well as someone who will immediately put a squeeze on taxpayer-funded health care programs with a “serious medical condition.” Wow.

Jayapal didn’t stop there. In a subsequent Twitter post, she also took it upon herself to accuse Trump’s border patrol agents of “illegal” acts.

“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,” Jayapal said.

It’s not abundantly clear what violations Jayapal is speaking of, though presumably she’s referring to United States asylum laws. In that sense, it’s beyond depressing that a United States congresswoman can be so obtuse as to what exactly qualifies a migrant for asylum.

To qualify for asylum, migrants must be fleeing because they have a well-established fearing of persecution for any number of reasons, including political or religious affiliation. Seeking employment or better health care, as many of these migrants admit to be looking for, unequivocally do not qualify for asylum.

U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, a conservative Florida Republican, took to Twitter to call out Jayapal’s efforts.

“Nuts” is one word for it, anyway.

But even if we were to give the fact that Jayapal did some incredibly humane act of goodness, how pathetic is it that her good deed was done just to attack Trump?

And make no mistake, Jayapal is a huge Trump critic.

According to Roll Call, she has just been elected co-chairwoman of the House Progressive Caucus. She also said in an interview with Politico on Friday that she decided to take her most recent trip to the border because she was horrified by reports last week about the Border Patrol using tear gas on migrants from the caravan who tried to storm the border.

“When I read the report about a week ago that kids and moms were being tear gassed, I just couldn’t sleep,” she told Politico. “I want to go see for myself what is happening, what happens to asylum seekers as they get to the border, how are they turned back, what’s happening to them in between, where the conditions in which they’re living.”

She clearly had no concern about the Border Patrol agents who were involved. They’re just regular American citizens doing their jobs — the kind of people Democrats increasingly have little use for, apparently.

And naturally, she blamed Trump for all of it.

“The president is lying about this caravan, he’s fear mongering,” she told Politico. “He’s trying to use people who are seeking asylum and literally running from death just for his own political benefit and that’s a disgrace.”

To paraphrase Jayapal, she is lying about this caravan. She’s trying to use people who are seeking asylum and literally running to better jobs for her own political benefit.

And that, my friends, truly is a disgrace.

    Did you pay for his medical care? Did you adopt him and take on all his financial needs? There are lots and lots of citizens in the USA that need help. Have you helped any of them?

    Well, she has admitted that she has violated federal law, so when might we expect her to be arrested, jailed, and tried for violating said laws? When might we expect her to resign or be expelled from Congress for violating her oath of office? These grandstanding idiots need to learn that actions have consequences!

    Depending on the method she used, undermining the laws and trust of USA citizens, she should go to jail. Did she help illegals to cross the border or did she use she position for legal entry. Either way she’s a POS.
    She should be helping the people that pay her salary. She should be helping veterans that are homeless and hungry. She should be helping the thousands of our country that cannot feed their own children. Does she care about Americans that have serious medical issues? Does she care about us?

      This fool was elected by the people of Seattle and King County. She replaced another traitor, Jim McDermott. As the rest of us could’ve expected, she was elected by a 5 to 1 margin. She needs to have her citizenship revoked and her ugliness deported to India where she oozed out from.

    I hope that she will continue with her humanitarian gesture and allow them to live with her in her home and find jobs etc. for them. She should be the sponsor and therefore responsible for them for the next 10 years.

    She should be Impeached, for violation her Oath Of Office to Uphold And Defend The Constitution and The Fed Laws….She Violated US Code, INS, ICE, DHS, USCIES, and “The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, Division C”

    No One Is Above The Law, Not Even Her…IMPEACH..

    Nothing will be done against her. Nothing has been done about the other Democrat devils. But, the democrats want the heads of the repubs that they falsely accuse of crimes. Our Congress is too weak to stop any of the crimes these democrats committ.

    That is 10 counts of aiding and abetting after the fact, the breaking of U.S. immigration law. She needs to be arrested, and loose her seat in congress.

    Jail… she’s already admitted to the crime so there’s no reason for a trial. Convict her and toss her behind bars!

    She is a swamp creature and needs to be drained from congress. Where is the oversite on congress? It seems like people in congress can get away with anything they do and they suffer no consequences. As it stands their are only 3 ways to get people out of office: 1) vote them out. 2) they retire. 3) they die. Almost forgot, should they mismanage campaign monies and get arrest and convicted. That would be the fourth way to get someone out.

    Dude! she so much broke the law! and aided 5 immigrants to break the law. Now heres a question.how many Democrats agreed with that? Probably all and as an example of what you condone ..lawlessness you and all your assisting democrats get to wear the criminal clothes for breaking the law you are not exempt to the law.and you should be held accountable.and by that an example will be made of individuals who think they are above the law. And the law is the law congressman or common man. Make her step down. The law is law! even if its broke with humanitarian intentions.condoning is our problem now.

    SERIOUS MEDICAL PROBLEM? AIDS, POLIO, THE PLAGUE. THE WHOLE FAMILY COULD BE INFECTED. SHE COULD HAVE CAUSED THOUSANDS OR EVEN MILLIONS OF AMERICANS TO DIE FROM SOME OUT OF CONTROL DISEASE. WHAT AN IDIOT. SHE SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE IMMEADIATELY!

    Well put people as we enter the season of celebrating the denial of Jesus’ entry only to be denied and having to be born in a Manger.
    And the reason we have many U.S. Citizens needing help right here before caring for the families at our borders is because WE VOTE TO NEGLECT AND NOT CARE FOR THEM EITHER!
    If we have $$ for WAR, then we have $$ to help our brothers and sisters.
    Riddle me this…WWJD?
    HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
