I’m Not Making This Up, You Know

Last Sunday, Jon Ossoff, one of the Democrats in the runoff elections for Senator in Georgia, was asked how he would deal with people who where illegally brought to the United States while they were minor children. According to the Washington Free Beacon, Ossoff gave a rather standard support-for-DACA answer and then kept talking.

The Democrat went on to chastise the “brutal conditions” facing workers on Georgia farms, arguing that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents should be used not to detain illegal immigrants but rather to verify that such workers are treated well.

“When federal agents arrive at one of these farms, it should be to make sure people are being paid the minimum wage, working in humane conditions,” Ossoff said at the Sunday event, adding that the U.S. should “show humanity and compassion for those who are part of our society but living in the shadows.”

He seems to have acquired much of his understanding of how the government functions while working on Capitol Hill. According to his bio on Wikipedia, Ossoff worked as a national security staffer and aide to U.S. Representative Hank Johnson for five years. While I can’t find any definite information online, it may be that Rep. Johnson placed Ossoff in charge of monitoring the safety of Guam.
