Scott said he was at a briefing on Tuesday from the White house and spoke with some military members. He added, “I was down on the border of Venezuela, the Colombia border last week. I saw, you know, that you sleep those mothers with two or three children on the street because they have no job and the only food they get is from a US aid food station, which will give you a meal of the day, and they are waiting (for) hours. So I’m hopeful. I’m hopeful that the military will come to their senses.”

When asked if he thinks really, it is possible that at the end of the day, Maduro would be out of the country, Scott said, “If the military is your job.”

He added, “I feel so terrible for the citizens down there and I see the little babies and their faces, which is not enough to eat. The children get to walk for hours to a school, because they want to be educated.”

And what will happen, it will cause problems, for Colombia, for Brazil, for Panama, for all the countries in South and Central America, and then, what is America to do? On the sidelines you sit then? What do the military, from all these countries? You are going to sit on the sidelines, where you have terrorists like the [sic] bombing in Bogota in January? No. We don’t go to Syria, if we take it seriously and find out how to kick Maduro to step aside. China and Russia need to go.”

Scott referred to. January, the car-bomb attack on a police school in Bogota, killing 21 people.

On “America’s Newsroom” on Tuesday, Scott also weighed in President trump, the call the night before for a radical overhaul to an asylum system, it has long says is full of fraud-including a new fee for the processing of asylum-seekers and the ability to quickly decide plaintiff’s claims, while also being apart of them from the work in the United States in the meantime.

“Here is what is frustrating. I think that the President is not doing these things, because our system works,” said Scott.

“So, we have to find out how we have an asylum system that does what it is supposed to do, and help those with asylum not to let people with the benefits of the system.”

In a presidential memorandum, Trump specifically said that attorney General William Barr, and acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, sweeping overhaul of the asylum system, it was necessary to have a “crisis” at the border.

Immigration courts in the processing of asylum applications currently have a backlog of more than 800,000 cases, and asylum-seekers increasingly stay in the United States, even after their claims had been denied asylum.

“We know that we have a crisis on the border. The Democrats sitting on the side line. You have to think that this is good politics for them,” said Scott.

“I was on the border. It is not fair to our agents. You don’t have enough people, you have enough technology, you have to barriers. The Democrats have to start up and say: “we have a limit.'”

He continued, “But the Democrats are on the side line. You have to think that this is good policy.”

Scott added, “I was down in Panama, in the Venezuelan border, Colombia, and Buenos Aires last week. I met with DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration), the agents, and they told me (about) all the terrorists that you have found, trying to cross the border. This was in Panama, to cross through Panama North through Central America, to Mexico, to the United States.”

“We need to understand that there are people who come (from) all over the world, some of them, they are wonderful people who want to do the right things, but some of them are the damage to us and so we have to secure our border.”
