Cummings repeatedly shut down McAleenan’s attempts to speak while discussing the crowded centers migrants are being held in.

Cummings read from a court document in which a federal judge found that Homeland Security “did a better job of tracking immigrants’ personal property than their children,” before adding, “I’m talking about human beings. I’m not talking about people that come from, as the president said, shitholes. These are human beings. Human beings. Just trying to live a better life.”

Cummings also asked whether there is an “empathy deficit” at DHS.

Trump continued his tweet Saturday: “….As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place.”

The president followed up with a call to investigate the Maryland lawmaker: “Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States. No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!”

Cummings’ district is 55 percent African American and 35 percent white. Among the majority-black districts, Cummings’ is the second-most wealthy and educated in Maryland.President Trump on Saturday branded Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., a “brutal bully” for his treatment of border patrol officials at committee hearings — and described Cumming’s district as “far worse and more dangerous” than the southern border.
