Do the crime, you do the time…without your family
Two local lawyers who draw their salaries from a tax-exempt corporation known as Abolish Private Prisons, have written an op-ed in the Hillary-endorsing, homeless vagrant newspaper, condemning border detention centers.
Under the guise of “criminal justice reform,” the now sacred cow of the left, John Dacey and Robert Craig, are in reality, working to lodge a legal challenge to the constitutionality of prison privatization in the United States. Socialist billionaire George Soros has been funding the overturning the U.S. criminal justice system for years as noted by Politico.
They inventively link the 1776 signing of the Declaration of Independence to holding illegal invaders in border facilities, which they disdain. They focus on children, since that fulfills the heartstrings tugging aspect of their lengthy screed.
The word pictures they paint are more preposterous than disturbing. This is an example: “Babies on cold concrete floors, not being allowed to sleep, shower or wash themselves.”
They write of “distraught parents having loved ones ripped from their arms.” as they ignore the facts. Many of these children are not traveling with their parents. Our lax laws allow invaders traveling with children priority processing status. They know the drill, bringing often exploited children, as they falsely claim asylum status.
If asylum is actually what Central Americans are seeking, why didn’t they make that claim when they set foot in Spanish-speaking Mexico? American benefits are generous and the Democrat presidential candidates are promising them even more, along with the right to determine our congressional representation, by being counted in the 2020 U.S. Census.
American citizens who commit crimes are separated from their children during their incarceration. It happens every day in every state in the nation. If the crimes are egregious enough, the parents and children are permanently separated.
Then comes the ax wielded by the Abolish Private Prisons profiteers: “Most detainees are in private facilities.” What the duo is looking for is launching a money-making challenge to the constitutionality of private for-profit prisons at the SCOTUS level. They are on the same page as the radically left Southern Poverty Law Center, which places people and organization it reviles on a hate group list. Their allegations are on par with radical Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who falsely alleged that detained women were told to drink out of the toilet.
Claiming to care about babies “unable to shower,” they actually care about money lining their own pockets.
The duo opines that “the evils” of private detention “enable the current atmosphere of over-enforcement” — as if were it not for incarceration there would be no crime.
Disingenuously alleging basic hygienic amenities like toothbrushes and soap is denied to the illegals, Dacey and Craig actually write that the conditions have prompted former prisoners of the Taliban and Somali pirates to speak out, saying that such basic items were provided even while they were held captive — placing the U.S. below terrorists.
They urge voting for legislators who will end this. “We need active citizens to demand so much more than we are getting from our elected leaders. Support leaders and organizations that demand moral solutions. But unless we are willing to fight for change, by voting for policies and legislators that would end these practices, we are complicit in these cruelties.”
Guess who Dacey and Craig will be voting for? Hint: it won’t be Republicans. That’s why the leftist newspaper provided undeserved space.
