DNC Chair Schultz Angers Constituents by Supporting New Immigration Jail

The Daily Caller Reports: Congresswoman and Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie  Wasserman Schultz continues to publicly maintain her support for the  controversial construction of a new immigration jail in her South Florida  district, even as her liberal colleagues claim that such facilities contribute  to family break-ups and the mistreatment of suspected illegal aliens.

Citizen groups have collected more than 11,000 signatures, but claim she has  refused to meet with them.

In 2011, Wasserman Schultz and Florida Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson signed a letter in support of the construction of an  Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Southwest Ranches, a swanky town  20 miles west of Ft. Lauderdale. Since then, assorted liberal groups have  opposed the project along with a similar facility in Crete, Ill., a working  class town 30 miles south of Chicago.
