A group of lawmakers are sharing stories from migrants seeking to enter the United States following a visit last week to the country’s southern border, where they met individuals from Africa and African diaspora countries who are awaiting asylum processing.

The group of members from the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) visited migrants at the San Ysidro port of entry between San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico. CBC Chairwoman Karen Bass (D-Calif.) led the group and was joined by fellow CBC members Reps. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.). Rep. Juan Vargas (D), who represents California’s single border district, also joined.

The article goes on to state the following:

The lawmakers were accompanied by representatives from the Black Alliance for Just Immigration. The group met with 30 individuals seeking asylum in the U.S., with migrants coming from countries including Sierra Leone in West Africa, Haiti and Jamaica in the Caribbean, and Cameroon in Central Africa, the CBC said in a statement.

Lawmakers participating in the trip then posted statements and photos on Twitter, in defense of the African migrants who have traveled through Mexico to the U.S. border, as they demanded that President Trump let them in.

Rep. Barbara Lee declared in a Twitter post, “Trump has had a white nationalist agenda since Day 1. My trip to the US-Mexico border showed us exactly how his administration has been working to keep people from “s**thole” countries out of America. These cruel & bigoted policies have no place in a nation built by immigrants.”
