Like many of her contemporaries, 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D-CA) has an issue with the truth.
Truth and Kamala go together like peanut butter and tuna fish. No bueno.
Now, even left-leaning CNN is calling out Harris for a big-time blatant lie.
From Daily Wire:
If you’re carrying anything breakable, put it down before you read this and drop it: CNN issued a report detailing Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) lying to an Iowa audience on Sunday about a policy she supported in 2008 that called for illegal immigrants who were minors to be claimed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement if they were only suspected but not convicted of having committed a felony.
Harris had joined Political Party Live, an Iowa podcast, where she was queried by host Misty Rebik about her support of the 2008 policy, enacted by then-San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom. Rebik mentioned a CNN KFile report that detailed Harris’ support; it read:
As district attorney of San Francisco, Kamala Harris supported a city policy that required law enforcement to turn over undocumented juvenile immigrants to federal immigration authorities if they were arrested and suspected of committing a felony, regardless of whether they were actually convicted of a crime.
CNN noted that in San Francisco, a sanctuary city since 1989, police were not forced to offer information to federal immigration authorities about their dealings with illegal immigrants. In 1992, the city changed the policy so that adult illegal immigrants would no longer be immune from the information-trading process, but minors were still off-limits. But after a 21-year-old illegal immigrant was arrested for triple murder, and he had a prior conviction as a 17-year-old for attempted robbery and assault but hadn’t been reported to the federal authorities, Newsom changed the policy to include minors.
Be better, Kamala.
Harris’s own father noted that her ancesttors owned slaves, via Jamaica Global Online:
As a child growing up in Jamaica, I often heard it said, by my parents and family friends: “memba whe yu cum fram”. To this day, I continue to retain the deep social awareness and strong sense of identity which that grassroots Jamaican philosophy fed in me. As a father, I naturally sought to develop the same sensibility in my two daughters. Born and bred in America, Kamala was the first in line to have it planted. Maya came two years later and had the advantage of an older sibling as mentor. It is for them to say truthfully now, not me, what if anything of value they carried from that early experience into adulthood. My one big regret is that they did not come to know very well the two most influential women in my life: “Miss Chrishy” and “Miss Iris” (as everybody called them). This is, in many ways, a story about these women and the heritage they gave us.
My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (née Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner (and founder of Brown’s Town) and to my maternal grandmother Miss Iris (née Iris Finegan, farmer and educator, from Aenon Town and Inverness, ancestry unknown to me). The Harris name comes from my paternal grandfather Joseph Alexander Harris, land-owner and agricultural ‘produce’ exporter (mostly pimento or all-spice), who died in 1939 one year after I was born and is buried in the church yard of the magnificent Anglican Church which Hamilton Brown built in Brown’s Town (and where, as a child, I learned the catechism, was baptized and confirmed, and served as an acolyte).
