Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, another of the impressive Democratic Freshman class who represents the South Florida district which houses the Homestead facility for migrant children, represents the best of American values, a value system that was and is and should continue to be a source of pride for Americans, a system that offers safety and shelter for refugees in exchange for the immeasurable gifts and talents they offer our country in return.

Debbie migrated here in 1985 from her native Ecuador with her mother and three sisters at 14 years of age, where she lived with her family in a one bedroom apartment while she complted High School, took a bachelor’s degree from Pitzer College and a Masters in International Political Economy from Claremonte Graduate.

Yesterday she visited the Children at Homestead.

How many Debbie Mucarsel-Powells now languish in tents in Florida and Texas? How many children who have so much potential are being treated like criminals because of the fear and insecurities of our criminal *Resident and his unworthy-of-the-title “American” followers?

Given the life she has made manifest, Debbie can only weep at the opportunities being lost to her adopted nation.

As do we all.
