San Diego County Supervisor Kristin Gaspar on border security and recent trip

first_img Posted: January 17, 2019 1/2 Instead of criticizing behind your computer, let’s have a meaningful discussion. I never said anything about the wall. Just like you, I’m a mom who cares abt the safety of kids in our community & I’m concerned, as I’m sure you are about the proliferation of dangerous drugs… https://t.co/PQGDz6xvIJ— Kristin Gaspar (@KristinDGaspar) January 15, 2019Below is a transcript of her discussion with President Trump:THE PRESIDENT: Miles away. You don’t even hear about it because you don’t want to tell the story of what’s going on at the border. You don’t want to tell the story about how dangerous it is. So you have people get up and say walls are immoral. What’s immoral is what’s going on. It’s — there’s never been anything like it. And we can stop it so easy.And the Border Patrol and ICE — they’re doing a fantastic job. But we’re not giving them the equipment when we’re not giving them the walls or the steel barriers or whatever you want to call it. We’re not giving them the equipment.Remember El Paso? Remember what I said about El Paso? From one of the worst to one of the best.Yes, ma’am. Please go ahead.MS. GASPAR: I’m San Diego County Supervisor Kristin Gaspar. We’re the fifth-largest county in the nation. We actually have the busiest land crossing in the entire world. And we do rely on our border to maintain that strong, binational economy. But at the same time, we rely on our border to keep us safe.The last time, I had the opportunity to share the tragic loss of Alexander Mazin, a young person in San Diego who was brutally murdered while his killer slipped freely across the border into Mexico.Today, I’d like to share with you an alarming trend about what’s really happening with the insecurity of our border when it comes to the exploitation of our children. There is an alarming trend in San Diego that our young teens in San Diego schools are being actively recruited by violent drug cartels. They’re being pack mules for these drug cartels — smuggling heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl across the border.It’s become such an alarming trend that they’re being recruited over social media. They’re being recruited over gaming consoles. They’re being recruited in traditional safe spaces, like our schools and our libraries and our parks.Last year, 527 San Diegans lost their lives. They overdosed because of these drugs that are pouring across our border. In addition, San Diego is America’s finest city. But America’s finest city is now home to the second-largest human trafficking industry in the country.Our children are being sexually exploited because of the insecurity at our border. San Diego — this evil industry raked in close to a billion dollars last year. There are 12,000 human trafficking victims and survivors in San Diego County alone — the average age, sixteen years old. Sixteen years old.A third of this trafficked population are the very immigrants who have come to the United States to make for a better life.Now, 2,200 miles from Washington, D.C., representatives like me are held accountable by these families and these victims each and every day, while a standoff continues here. And so I challenge our congressional members to meet with these families, to meet with these victims, to look them in the eye, and tell them that this is not a crisis.Thank you for the opportunity to be here.THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. Thank you very much. And this is where I ask the Democrats to come back to Washington, and to vote for money for the wall, the barrier — whatever you want to call it is okay with me. They can name it whatever. They can name it “Peaches.” I don’t care what they name it. But we need money for that barrier.I will say this: The Republicans have been rock solid. They want this to happen. They’ve wanted it to happen a long time ago, and, frankly, for many years. I’m not just talking about now. I’m talking about for years. 2/2 Just last week our Board of Supervisors voted to seek to increase federal and state funding into our region. That is why I went to Washington. https://t.co/PQGDz6xvIJ— Kristin Gaspar (@KristinDGaspar) January 15, 2019 Categories: Local San Diego News, Politics Tags: Donald Trump, Kristin Gaspar FacebookTwitter Updated: 10:12 AM KUSI Newsroom, center_img 00:00 00:00 spaceplay / pause qunload | stop ffullscreenshift + ←→slower / faster ↑↓volume mmute ←→seek  . seek to previous 12… 6 seek to 10%, 20% … 60% XColor SettingsAaAaAaAaTextBackgroundOpacity SettingsTextOpaqueSemi-TransparentBackgroundSemi-TransparentOpaqueTransparentFont SettingsSize||TypeSerif MonospaceSerifSans Serif MonospaceSans SerifCasualCursiveSmallCapsResetSave SettingsSAN DIEGO (KUSI) – After heading to the White House to meet with President Trump about the U.S.-Mexico border, San Diego County Supervisor Kristin Gaspar joined us in studio on Good Morning San Diego to discuss what she talked about.After Gaspar’s trip to meet with President Trump, Lorena Gonzalez went to Twitter to criticize her for what she calls a “photo op.” San Diego County Supervisor Kristin Gaspar on border security and recent trip to the White House January 17, 2019 KUSI Newsroom last_img read more
