Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), along with AOC, visited camps and delivered a passionate speech along with the others denouncing the conditions outside of a Clint, Texas, location. Pro-Trump protesters screamed at the Democratic women. When Pressley spoke, she was undeterred by their taunts.
“Keep yelling! This is very appropriate! Vile rhetoric for vile actions! I learned a long time ago that when change happens it's either because people see the light or they feel the fire. We're lifting up these stories in the hopes that you will see the light. And if you don't, we will bring the fire.This is about the preservation of our humanity. And this is about seeing every person there as a member of your own family. I am tired of the health and the safety, the humanity, and the full freedom of black and brown children being negotiated and compromised and moderated.”
