“Please give us some credit for knowing what the hell is going on around here,” said Hirono.
“Not really,” interrupted Graham. “Listen, you’ve slandered this man. All I can say is you slandered this man from top to bottom. If you want more of this, you’re not going to get it. If you’re going to ask him questions you can.”

Cortez’ found herself in hot-water this week after she made the stunning comparison; saying “Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime. It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany. It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda.”
