Lee joins Iowa counterpart in calling for congressional hearing on unaccompanied minors

Gov. Bill Lee speaks at a press conference in Nashville on March 22, 2021. (Erik Schelzig, Tennessee Journal)

Republican Gov. Bill Lee is joining Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds in calling on a congressional hearing on unaccompanied minors being flown to their states by the federal government.

Here’s the release:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Today, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee and Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds joined with U. S. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) in calling for a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing regarding the crisis at the southern border and the ensuing flow of unaccompanied minors to states.

“We are writing to support your continued calls for the Senate Judiciary Committee to hold an oversight hearing regarding the current border crisis,” the governors wrote in their letter to Senator Grassley. “We believe this hearing should also address the Biden Administration’s failure to provide notice and transparency in their movement of unaccompanied migrant children into states.”

Both Iowa and Tennessee have faced a series of disturbing incidents involving the transport of unaccompanied children into respective states, under the cover of darkness, with no advance notification, consent or plan from federal partners.

“These experiences sow seeds of mistrust in our communities, and work to intentionally subvert the will of the people for a secure border and a clear, lawful immigration process,” the governors wrote in their letter to Senator Grassley. “Additionally, the lack of transparency places an undue burden on our law enforcement partners to determine whether these types of flights constitute a criminal act of human trafficking or the federally-sponsored transport of vulnerable children.”

Both Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn and Senator Bill Hagerty support calls for a hearing.

“The Biden Administration is secretly transporting migrants to communities throughout the United States, including in Tennessee, without the knowledge of or permission of the communities involved,” said Senator Blackburn. “President Biden’s failed immigration policies have turned every town into a border town. The Senate Judiciary Committee should immediately hold an oversight hearing on the crisis at our southern border. I applaud Governor Lee for his efforts to protect our state and the people who are being trafficked by the Mexican cartels.”

“Tennessee and states all across the country are seeing the real, tangible results of President Biden’s total failure to solve the crisis at the border—a crisis of his own making—with the systematic resettling of migrants in our communities,” said Senator Hagerty. “Mayors, sheriffs and governors are on the front lines of combatting increased human trafficking and drug smuggling, as well as addressing strains on public resources. I applaud Governors Lee and Reynolds for continuing to draw attention to these matters, asking questions and urging Congress to perform its proper oversight function.”

    What happens if a US citizen mother puts her preteen daughter in the hands of criminal gang members to make a cross country trek during which she is raped and nearly drowns during a river crossing? She’s charged with child endangerment, I HOPE.

    Contrast that with the treatment an undocumented mother gets when US taxpayers fly her Guatemalan “refugee” daughter to be reunited to wherever she has been illegally living in the US. I think there are no charges pressed. Is that correct???

    Absolutely right for Republicans to shine as bright a light as possible on the suicide pact the majority of Americans have entered into with the leftists in the Democratic Party in the hopes that enough people decide that mawkish sentimentality might make some feel good for awhile, but suicide is serious and permanent.

    BTW, not enough attention has been paid on this forum to our spanking new Senator Bill Hagerty since he took office. I voted for Bill so it gives me great pleasure to point out that after about six months in office Bill’s Heritage score is a GREAT BIG 98%. Looks like he likes being our Senator and we sure love the voting record he is racking up being our Senator.

        A VERY good point James!!!! Easy enough to just sit there and say “NO” “NO” when the nut cases in the Democratic Party control the Senate and bring up one bill that’s nuttier than the next. It’s when the Republicans are in control that the Party shows itself to be so unfit to govern so the votes get harder as good legislation gets watered down to accommodate the “Lamars” in the Party. Thus we must move the Party RIGHTWARD, etc. etc.

            Phillip, when a member of the Tennessee Race Baiters uses the leftist mindless expanded definition of “race” to try to attract you down the rabbit hole of identity politics to account for things that have absolutely nothing to do with the “race” of an individual I ignore them or try to show what fools they reveal themselves to be. To answer them substantively is to lend credence to their tendentious mindlessness which I avoid doing like the plague.

            You didn’t finish the sentence MARLE which for the purpose of accuracy should have ended by saying “. . .just the ones THEY [decide] . . . were important.” Is there any information you have that the vote to confirm this judge was important so as to be included on the Heritage scorecard? Or have you simply been suckered into talking identity politics just because a member of the Tennessee Race Baiters wants to talk about identity politics because after all that’s all they got?

            My response had nothing to do with race baiting; it had to do with the fact that SCORES are only measuring the things Heritage thinks are noteworthy, not the things I think are. And they and I disagree.

            That’s fair enough but in this particular case there is no reason for you or I or apparently anyone else to think that this vote was important enough to appear on any scorecard and the article that we are supposed to be addressing had nothing to do with the vote on confirming this judge. QUESTION: Why are we chatting about this vote? ANSWER: It’s because a member of the Tennessee Race Baiters decided it would be fun to talk about ANYTHING that had to do with identity politics. That’s what race baiters do. That’s what race baiters have always done since the War Between the States up to modern times. They update the appeal, of course, but it’s always the demagogic same, cover up what should be discussed by distracting the people to divide themselves into warring tribes. It’s harmful. In fact, it’s disgusting but that is this country’s legacy and none of us that aren’t members of the Race Baiters should have anything to do with it.

    Marsha Blackburn needs to make sure she always speaks AFTER Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and/or Senator Tommy Tubberville of Alabama. Those two make Blackburn sound intelligent (no easy task). In fact, she should probably try to get her seat in the chamber moved to where she can be close to one or the other and therefore never miss an opportunity to sound smart. Just always let one of them go first. Every city in Tennessee a border town? She really said that?

      Stuart I. Anderson says:

      Readers, from the top of your program that’s Blackburn (Heritage-87%), Johnson (83%), Tuberville (98%) and in the case of Tommy competing for Senate Rookie of the Year honors. Their job is to say “AYE” when voting on legislation that should be approved, and “NO” when voting on legislation that should be rejected. That being the case, obviously Marsha and Tommy are doing an outstanding job while Ron is OK.

      David is confused yet again. He thinks that the primary job of a U. S. Senator is to “sound intelligent.” No David, that’s the job of actors and actresses who are portraying someone who is supposed to be intelligent even though the performers are in real life uneducated morons (see, Tom Cruise, Demi Moore playing attorneys in “A Few Good Men”).

      While “sounding intelligent” is nice, those of us who have been in a university for any appreciable period of time know that some sound intelligent but on closer examination aren’t, and others don’t have the glib tongue so as to sound intelligent but really are. Of course, David doesn’t know any of the legislators he mentions except to know that they are fine conservatives and, alas, David isn’t one so he casts pejorative labels on those with whom he disagrees. That’s OK, I do it myself quite frequently. Just so long as readers know that Marsha, Ron and Tommy are doing a great to OK job.

        Just for the information of readers, when Marsha first went to Congress in 2002 she immediately cast one of the deciding votes backing “Uniter” Bush’s historic capitulation allowing for the expansion of Medicare to cover prescription drugs. When she did that I was incredulous and stopped supporting her entirely insofar as she ran as this Rambo conservative in the newly drawn Seventh District. For about ten years thereafter her Heritage score averaged about 75, the very model of a tepid conservative. The heartwarming end of the story is that she was reunited with the conservatism that made her a legend in the General Assembly and bloomed into the great 87% Senator she is today and will be for however long she chooses to be in the Senate. As a matter of fact that is such an inspiring story that I think that I will wear my red “Marsha Marsha Marsha” shirt today just on its retelling.

Trump is a disgusting has been, twice defeated, twice impeached crook who should be in jail right now along with most of his friends and some of his family. The most recent International polls shows that Trump had a 17% “score” for the question “Do you believe the President will do the right thing for the country?” While Biden currently has a “score” of 75% for the same question. How would the Heritage guys score that one Stuart? More people are waking up every day to the dirty politics the republicans and the conservatives use to defeat the public.

    Just to point out “todays” version of political garbage that republicans throw around so easily…word is out that Beth Harwell is considering another Congressional run in our great state of Tennessee. When asked about it – she actually said she would run IF the gerrymandering was done correctly and gave her an advantage. See most republicans and conservatives can NOT get elected legally, so they have come to rely on the dirty tricks they have perfected so well over the years. Republicans and conservatives depend on sly and sneaky voter suppression laws and gimmicks that turn off voters to squeak by & into office. And if they happen to loose in a close election – well, look how trump responded. The party of NO; NO has become their entire platform now! That is why their numbers are dropping so fast.

    So Stuart, would you support Laura Trump and her comments yesterday where she incited Texans to “arm up and take matters into your own hands and shoot immigrants.” That type of talk meets the requirements of “inciting a riot,” just like her father in law did on Jan. 6. How many people were shot and killed in Houston yesterday? This is why the republicans and the outplayed conservatives are slowly loosing their power over the voting public. These crooks know the trouble they are in and can only try to rig the rules in their favor, as they are doing at the moment with these ridiculous voter rights restrictions. It is a desperate move by a desperate party that is totally out of touch with todays voters. The voters will have a chance to right the ship soon.

      It’s been awhile since I went over this Taxpayer and I am sure readers come and go to this blog so once again I remind you I am a conservative with a pleasant libertarian seasoning. Conservatives are law and order advocates, do the crime and do the time. No excuses about having had bad parenting, environment growing up, poverty, etc. for such excuses are what has made leftist run cities warzones.

      Not being a Trumpidian I don’t pay attention to what any of the Trumpi say or do but if she really said those words, of course, I would not support her though I do support Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas pushing to see how far the state can go in doing something about the disgraceful invasion of illegals we are experiencing orchestrated by the demented Big Guy’s administration that you support. Whether the words you say that Laura uttered was “inciting a riot” would depend on the facts and circumstances in which she allegedly said them. Finally, of course, in the real world Pres. Trump didn’t say anything like those words, but what the heck, by focusing on the lawlessness of Jan. 6th you leftists can ignore the warzones you’ve created in about a dozen of our largest cities so you guys are really the only ones who came out a winner from the readily forgettable incident.

    For your info, Laura Trump said those exact words on your own FOX channel during an interview. Conservatives are certainly NOT law & order advocates. Trump’s words were almost identical on Jan 6 as he tried hard to start a riot and even rooted out loud for an overthrown government. Just about everything trump said in his speech is what the conservative crowd did that night, they followed his words and formed a riot that killed Capitol Policemen and others. Over 500 people that acted that night on trump’s behalf, have been arrested because of that nights’ lawlessness.
    Gov Abbott wants to finish building trump daddy’s wall to stop all those nasty foreigners you all hate so bad. I Wonder if he supports just shooting them like the republicans say they want to do. Your excuses remain pretty weak and are getting worse. You are down to saying that the Democrats came out the winner from Jan 6. Do you really believe that Stuart?? I don’t think any American came out winning anything from that dark night in our history.

      Readers, the one person killed in the riot was an unarmed lady who was one of the rioters who was shot for trespassing under circumstances that the government is covering up even including the name of the Capitol Policeman who shot her. The Capitol Policeman who died that day died of natural causes as determined by the DC coroner’s report. Rush-to-judgement reports so typical of our red-yellow “journalists” of today re: that the policeman died after being hit with a fire extinguisher etc. etc. were, as they so often are, FALSE.

        But no, you can’t bring yourself to criticize what happened. And what Trump said THAT DAY is not the sum total of what mobilized these people to action. Leading up to the Vote Certification date of Jan 6 Trump tweeted 24/7 of his displeasure with Pence being “cowardly” enough to go through with his official duties.

        Your refusal to be truthful is what hurts Conservatives. And for the sake of ’22 I hope it won’t turn enough people off that we LOSE AGAIN and stay in the minority for another period of policy destroying Democrat rule.

    500 people under arrest with a coup attempt on our democracy and you want to quibble about one person whose death is still in question. Wait for all the information to come out as it will. This is the base of the big lie, it wasn’t an insurrection, it was just another day at the office with the Proud Boys and the other nut jobs with Q. They were just meeting with their representatives, yeah right. They broke in to the Capitol and desecrated and ransacked the building and hunted for politicians to kill. AND IT IS ALL ON FILM! If they had found Pence or any of the others they were seeking that day, no one knows what would have happened. Thankfully the coup failed that day but we need to prosecute every single one that was responsible for the attempt. I don’t believe for a moment that officer Sicknick died of natural causes AFTER he was beaten with a metal fire extinguisher and getting sprayed in the face several times with high powered Bear Spray and perhaps being tasered too. Yes, he may have also had a heart attack that day but with all the abuse he took no one can say for sure what exactly caused his death, but that matters little except to his family and friends. He did his job and died defending the Capitol he had sworn to protect against an invading mob of hoodlums with not a single good deed on their minds. They were out for blood.

      That readers is the psychological pathology that creates the more extreme Trumpidians/Q-Anonsters on the right and the CNN/MSNBCbots on the left. No it isn’t pretty, in fact, enough of them and we have recreated Germany of the 1920’s and I’m afraid that’s the direction in which we are headed. If there are any psychologists/psychiatrist who have not been sucked up by our leftist state religion perhaps they can come up with what we can do about it before it’s too late.

    Stuart, you do realize that one side of your so called equation has no deaths, assaults and/or destruction of property or breaking and entering or rioting on their side. It kind of makes your comparison above of the 2 different sides about as useful or as believable as your high heritage self-scoring system. What we can do about it is arrest and jail all those that, as you say repeatedly, have done the crime, so do the time. That would include a huge chunk of the trump crowd and a large part of his former crooked staff. You say you don’t like trump but you agree that you are forced to support trump because it is the only way that you think some of your conservatives might get elected on the side. Germany has nothing to do with these issues unless you are referring to the laws that Hitler passed quietly in back rooms and thus became a dictator. Saving our democracy is something worth saving before it is too late don’t you think?

      The problem with Heritage scores is a personality cult leader forces them to change their scoring criteria to fit an autocratic regime.

      How did Elise StefaniKKK go from below Ilhan Omar (Sub 20%) to de facto leader of the GQP House Freedom Caucus? Because Trump told them to shut the fuck up and let him do what he wants.

      Donald Trump could shut down Heritage in an instant, and they know it. She will have a 100 score on the next report card.

      Yes, Stuart has called Republicans Trumpidans – a reference to Kool-Aide suicide cults. He has told them to get in line. He has called Trump a Son of Bitch, a bully, and a lying asshole who doesn’t do anything for conservatives but set them back politically. He has defended RINOs who voted to certify Joe Biden.

      And then he realizes he can’t do shit without the Trumps.

    Everybody on here downplaying QAnon because it’s not fashionable on this forum but will turn around and watch Fox News and read Tennessee ⭐✨ is just plain NASTY.

    Public Religion Research Institute has already classified QAnon as a religion. 15% of Americans believe in QAnon. That’s about 40% of Republicans. The number of adherents to QAnon is larger than Methodists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, and Episcopalians COMBINED. And it’s growing at an exponential rate, while the Southern Baptist Convention continues a 14 year nosedive in membership.

    Let Stuart I Anderson downplay it all he wants, but he doesn’t matter. He’s an insignificant speck of dust compared to Donald Trump. Donald Trump created and perpetuates the cult of QAnon. That is the Republican Party. Period.

The fund has been around for decades and I have been fortunate enough to live in Tennessee since 1992 so historically I have had the pleasure of sending the legendary Mae Beavers (ACU-92%) and Susan Lynn (86%) grants-in-aid on a number of occasions but that was quite a while ago when they needed the money. Nothing recently.

It was so many grants-in-aid ago that I don’t remember clearly but I assume since Mae was and Susan has been in office for a long time my contribution helped them achieve or stay in office PERIOD. Again, my goal is to move the Republican Party RIGHTWARD, RIGHTWARD, RESOLUTELY RIGHTWARD. Who is or isn’t attending the Wilson County Republican fundraiser, I’m sure you will understand, is not a burning issue that should be addressed.

          The goal of the Wilson County dinner is to raise money for the Wilson County Republican Party. To do that you need people to buy tickets to attend. Having an person that makes leftist’s heads explode (bless her!) aides in attracting participants. The fact that she is an attractive, well spoken lady with a Heritage score of 98% only adds to her attractiveness as a featured speaker. Now I suggest we turn to something important like acquiring an established conservative candidate to replace the readily replaceable Roy Blunt (Heritage-64%) over in Missouri.

            The Republicans will be victorious if they run well funded campaigns that crystalize the madness of the leftists who lead the Democratic Party and how that madness translates in everyday life from open borders to the use of pronouns. Leftist enthusiasts for the Democrats don’t allow the idiotic things that “Sandy” Cortez or that Omar specimen from Minnesota or that great intellectual Hank Johnson of Georgia say dissuade them for voting Democratic because they have much more important things to consider when casting their vote. So should it be for right-of-center voters regarding the things Trump or MTG say. If those on the right are too persnickety relative to those on the left to cast their votes in that way then the only conclusion to draw is that they don’t feel that strongly so the left wins and in a democracy that’s the way it should be. I can only say if that’s the way it turns out to those with children and grandchildren “isn’t that a shame that we have become too persnickety to survive as the free and prosperous country we used to be.”

            MARLE, MTG was removed from her committee assignments at the behest of the Republican leadership, she is hardly anything but a backbencher, and a backbencher with somewhat less power that the average backbencher insofar as she has no votes on House committees. Just because she was invited to speak at a county fundraiser in Wilson County doesn’t make her a mover and shaker in the party.

            Besides, MTG might have said a few nutty things in the past most of which she has now recanted, but she does have firm opinions and she is not afraid to express them. Relax MARLE because that characteristic alone disqualifies her from a leadership position in today’s tall grass dwelling Republican Party that seeks to be nothing more than the political arm of the U.S. Chamber/Business Round Table/NAM.
