Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly fired back Thursday at Sen. Bob Casey Jr.’s “outrageous” tweets about a recent deportation.
The Democrat from Pennsylvania rallied against the deportation of a Honduran mother and her 5-year-old son.
“Twitter: it’s urgent,” Casey tweeted. “I just found that a young child & mother who came to U.S. seeking refugee will be sent back to Honduras today.”
Casey added: “What I won’t do: stand by silently as a vulnerable child and his mother are sent to their possible death.”
Kelly was not happy, McClatchy reports .
“You can’t pick and choose the laws you follow,” Kelly said Thursday. “I can’t pick and choose the laws I enforce.”
Kelly added that multiple courts, including the Supreme Court, denied the woman’s stay in the U.S.
