Frothing at the mouth, Wisconsin embarrassment and GOP US House member Tom Tiffany accuses Catholic, Lutheran, and Jewish charitable organizations of human trafficking

Headline:  The Hill, 9/23/2023
Earlier this year, a group of House Republicans took aim against Catholic, Lutheran and Jewish groups for supposedly “facilitating the border crisis” by refusing to let migrants suffer once they enter the country. Rep. Tom Tiffany (R-Wis.) accused these groups of “running the pipeline to our border” and engaging in “human trafficking.” 
He called for the head of Catholic Charities to “explain what they’re doing down on the border.” Tiffany’s remarks echoed those of Texas Rep. Lance Gooden (R-Texas), who called Catholic Charities “the biggest villain of them all” and claimed that “the Catholic bishops” are complicit in a “ruse” to spur illegal immigration. 
These are jarring accusations made only more perplexing by the details. What Catholic Charities is “doing down on the border” is not exactly villainous: Its staff and volunteers offer respite and basic human needs like food, clothing, medical attention and temporary shelter to vulnerable migrants after they have been processed by border authorities and as they await further proceedings. They also happen to do this work with the support of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) through a program that was expanded under Presidents Trump and Biden to address these glaring needs.  [emphasis added]
