Laura Ingraham: Media, Democrats, and Pelosi 'misleading' on illegal immigration

Fox News host Laura Ingraham blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for “using children to get her way” in regards to illegal immigration.

“Note her typical emotional ploy, using children to get her way. Except when she wants their lives ended,” Ingraham said on “The Ingraham Angle” Monday in response to a clip of Pelosi taking credit for delaying President Trump’s ICE raids.

TRUMP DELAYS PLANNED ICE RAIDS TO SEE IF CONGRESS CAN SOLVE BORDER CRISIS

“When I spoke to the President, I said ‘Look, I’m a mom, I have five kids, seven, nine grandchildren and children are scared,'”Pelosi said Monday in New York.

“No one wants any child ever to be afraid, ever. It is tragic, and it really shouldn’t happen. And kids of American criminals, they suffer here too because of the mistakes of their parents. And parents coming illegally, again tragic but now comes the consequences for the whole family sometimes. Or at least there should be consequences if the rule of law means anything,” Ingraham told her audience.

The host criticized Pelosi for not taking care of American citizens first and use San Francisco as an example.

“Nancy doesn’t need to go far, does she, from San Francisco to see suffering and desperation. We have seen all those stories. Maybe she should focus on fixing that before throwing rocks,” Ingraham said.

Ingraham also blasted Democrats for remaining silent on the issue when former President Obama faced the same accusations.

“But where were the Democrats? Where were their outrage before Trump came into office?” Ingram said before playing a clip of Obama.

“Do not send your children to the borders. If they do make it, they will get sent back, more importantly they may not make it,” President Obama said in 2014 interview with ABC News.

Ingraham blasted the media, Democrats and Pelosi for misleading the public.

“Now, do any of you remember Nancy Pelosi firing off angry tweets in demanding a change in Obama policy or criticizing these allegedly inhumane conditions?” Ingraham said.

“Don’t be deceived by the media coverage where the motive images you are seeing because it happened years ago and the Democrats were silent.”

Bipartisan House group introduces bill to help those with crippling student debt

Bipartisan group in House introduces bill to help those with crippling student debt

A bipartisan group on Monday introduced a bill in the House of Representatives to help those with crippling student loan debt avoid default.

Sponsored by Rep. Suzanne Bonamici, D-Ore., the representatives say their legislation will help people avoid such consequences as wage garnishments and a loss of Social Security benefits.

Bonamici and the legislation’s co-sponsors — Reps. Paul Mitchell, R-Mich., Brian Fitzpatrick, R-Pa., and Seth Moulton, D-Mass. — aim to help people who can’t afford full loan payments, have defaulted before, are in danger of default or have disabilities.

“Student loan defaults have damaging consequences for borrowers that can last a significant period of time,” Fitzpatrick said. “An investment in one’s education should not lead to long-term financial distress, and borrowers deserve more efficient access to the tools already at their disposal under the law.”

SCHOOL DISTRICT WARNS: PAY LUNCH BILL OR KIDS MAY GO INTO FOSTER CARE

Automating the process borrowers use to access benefits is the key to preventing defaults, the representatives say, because so many are unaware of the options available to them or fail to register for programs.

The Streamlining Income-driven, Manageable Payments on Loans for Education Act — or The SIMPLE Act — would require the Department of Education to use income and other information from the Treasury Department to verify individuals’ eligibility for these programs so they don’t have to do the paperwork themselves.

As an example, the summary of the bill points out “permanently and totally disabled” borrowers can be released from their student loan payments, but they have to submit paperwork over a three-year period to certify their disability. Otherwise, their loans are reinstated.

Ninety-eight percent of the 61,000 disabled borrowers who had their loans reinstated in 2015 did so because they didn’t submit the paperwork, the representatives say.

The bill would also automatically register those who have defaulted before or are on their way toward default in income-driven payment plans that allow people to pay back their loans based on their financial ability to do so.

The lawmakers say those who are in income-driven payment plans are five times less likely to default on their loans than those who aren’t.

Bonamici and Moulton introduced a version of the SIMPLE Act in 2017 with two different sponsors but the bill never made it out of committee.
