US Senator’s comments on Mexico dubbed him a “profoundly ignorant man”


In July 2019, Democratic Senator Kamala Harris of California denounced Republican Senator Rick Scott of Florida as a “profoundly ignorant man” after he made false statements about Mexico and immigration. In a tweet, Harris said she was “sick and tired of Republicans like Sen.

Scott spreading lies about immigrants and our border communities.” The comments were in response to Scott’s remarks that Mexico was sending criminals and drug dealers to the United States. Harris argued that Scott’s claim was false and damaging to immigrants and their families.
