Incoming Harris Communications Director Has to Apologize for Asking Common-Sense Question

Jamal Simmons asked a question a lot of us have wondered about at one point or another, which is why illegal immigrants can do media interviews etc., apparently free of any fear of arrest:

After the announcement, three tweets resurfaced in which Simmons asked, “Can someone explain why ICE is not picking them up?” after seeing an undocumented lawyer and undocumented protester speaking on MSNBC. He then responded to another Twitter user saying he was not “suggesting ICE should pick them up. Just seems odd u can go on TV & admit breaking law & not be arrested.”

Given the vice president he has signed up to serve, Simmons, of course, has had to grovel:

In a statement to CNN, Simmons said, “Sometimes I have been sarcastic, unclear, or just plainly missed the mark. I sincerely apologize for offending those who care as much as I do about making America the best, multi-ethnic, diverse democracy it can be.”
