Rep. Barbara Lee Defends Calling John Kelly an ‘Extremist’

‘What I’m talking about is his tenure as Homeland Security Secretary’
By Grabien Staff


LEE: “Let me first say I come from a military family. My dad served in World War II in Korea so I respect and honor the military and recognize the sacrifices that all of our military men and women make as well as General Kelly and his history and his sacrifices. What I’m talking about is his tenure as Homeland Security Secretary and the very extreme policies of promoting family dislocation, deportation of innocent men and women and children, breaking up families, promoting a Muslim ban, promoting a wall between the United States and Mexico. Those are extreme policies and so this is very troublesome to me to have this kind of power now centralized in the White House because these are very serious matters and these are extreme policies, but believe you me, as it relates to his service in the military, coming from a military family, I recognize and honor the service of men and women in our country.”
