Dingell: We Need ‘Tight’ Restrictions on Humanitarian Parole, ‘Criminals’ ‘Are Coming Over’ and Doing ‘Horrific’ Stuff

via NBC

Rep. Debbie Dingell expressed the need for a clear definition of a humanitarian crisis to address concerns about criminals entering the U.S. under humanitarian parole.

She emphasized the importance of defining the criteria for humanitarian crises, distinguishing between genuine cases and those involving criminals.

Dingell indicated that she is unwilling to support any measures until the specifics of what is being voted on are clear. (Trending: Trump Releases Must-See Christmas Message)

“I do want to ask you about one specific thing, because I know that the Republicans have been really sort of going after this one thing, saying this is the hangup, this is the big hangup, and it has to do with humanitarian parole, where the United States government can basically sort of let people in by bypassing the kind of regular immigration process, if — on a case-by-case basis — it’s for something urgent, an urgent humanitarian reason and can cause significant public benefit to the United States,” began Sara Sidner.

“That is one of the big issues that Republicans don’t want to see continuing. They want that parole issue to stop and not let people in, even with those sticking points. Is that a sticking point for you? Do you want to keep that in place, that decision to be able to help somebody if they’re in a major humanitarian crisis?” asked the host.

Rep. Debbie Dingell answered, “We’ve got to define what that humanitarian crisis is. Because there are people that are coming here, quite frankly, for the death of a relative or someone that’s dying and people that are in need of help.”

“But then what we see is the sensational, the criminals that are coming over and then have done something horrific. We have to really have a tight definition of what that is,” she continued.

“And that’s why I’m unwilling to say I’ll support this or support that until I know what are we being asked to vote on,” concluded the lawmaker.
