How dare he, huh? Troublemaker. He has no right to gain entry into a detention center. Right?

Is there a federal statue against grandstanding, because if there is...Trump has been in constant violation of that statute since June 16, 2015.
There appears to be when some random dude is trying to shove his way into a facility housing kids.

Wingers are confused at a US Senator actually doing some work. Wingers are accustomed to Senators being invisible and mute.

Some random dude...

It's fun to watch you new comers to politics exercise your political knowledge.

Let me clue you in to what will happen...He will be back and allowed entry and he will be with a bank of cameras.

Yea, It has to be arranged. You dont just show up. The cops know nothing about this guys background. He could be some creepy Anthony Wiener type. There at least have to be ground rules agreed on before he be let in, like filming, interrogating kids, etc.

It appears he was there simply for political grandstanding.
Any proof? Any proof at all? Doesn't matter, he called ahead, made arrangements and he was turned away AND COPS CALLED. He is a US Senator. He has every right to go into that facility. Old WalMart store or not.

Period.
