Mission diametrically opposed to Pres. Trump’s announcement
Following President Trump’s announcement on enhanced immigration policies which will favor those who can benefit America, we read that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is seeking to hire a ‘highly responsible” private contractor that will be accountable for transporting approximately 225,000 illegal alien children and families to shelters across the country over the next five years as they wait for their asylum claims to be processed.
Does any rational citizen believe illegals in the U.S. for five years will step forward to be processed on the chance they will be deported? Any children they have while in the United States will automatically be American citizens via a distorted interpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment, put in place after the Civil War to specifically grant citizenship to American-born children of freed African-born slaves.
And…the not to be missed proviso is that the contractor “fully embraces the philosophy” of treating all unaccompanied minors (UACs) and family units (FAMUs) with “dignity and respect,” according to this 70-page federal procurement document dated Tuesday, May 13.
The private company will be hired to transport approximately 60,000 people a year. It will work to arrange commercial flights and ground transportation for solo alien children up to age 17 as well as adults with children and will provide food, clothing and hygiene products during transit.
How much this will cost American taxpayers and why the unaccompanied minors are not sent home and reunited with their families remains a mystery.
On Thursday, May 15, President Trump unveiled his points-based proposal to “transform” America’s immigration system focusing on high skilled workers, and eliminating chain migration based on family ties. English proficiency, education, and whether the applicant has a well-paying job offer were specifically detailed.
In his speech, the president said, “The crisis at our border is at a breaking point. Approximately one million aliens are projected to arrive at the border this year alone, and more than 100,000 aliens have arrived each of the past two months.”
His unwavering support of enhanced border security and completion of a border barrier thrust him to the front of the 19 GOP presidential candidates in 2016 and have been hallmarks of his administration.
“It is time to begin moving towards a merit-based immigration system — one that admits people who are skilled, who want to work, who will contribute to our society, and who will love and respect our country,” he stated in his recent announcement.
Is ICE listening?
