Though the left intentionally misuses the words, illegal aliens are not “immigrants” or “migrants.” Immigrants enter the U.S. legally, using our generous system that takes in over a million yearly. Migrants are the swallows that come to Capistrano each March 19, but even they return home to Argentina.
The political rhetoric surrounding separating children from their illegal invader parents has escalated past a fevered pitch. A USA Today front page photo showing a father asking, in Spanish, of course, “Why are you taking my boy?” is a guaranteed heartstrings tugger. The report details the man’s long journey from Honduras to Texas with his 5-year-old son in tow. He left his wife and other children back home. The boy was supposed to be insurance.
Open border advocates and legal advisers have been counseling illegals breaching our border to bring their children and coaching them on the “magic words” to memorize enabling them to fall within the statute of credible fear that will put them on the asylum track, according to border officials. Mostly uneducated Central Americans from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, trekking through Mexico, but not stopping there, continue to flood the U.S. Once here they send back $billions of U.S. dollars in remittances to their homelands.
The mainstream media focus is on the Trump administration’s zero tolerance policies, although Newsweek reminds readers that Barack Obama held more than double the number of children in shelters compared to the Trump White House.
Families are routinely separated in the criminal justice system when adults break the law. It’s known as consequences for unlawful actions. If you rob a bank, you’ll be guaranteed to be separated from your kids, regardless of your country of origin. Taking a preschooler along on the heist will not ensure release from police custody. If anything, putting a youngster in harm’s way will enhance the charges.
A question to ponder: Would the throngs of immigration lawyers and illegal advocates be as committed to providing advice, aid and comfort, if they thought the majority of these “refugees” would register as Republicans?
This is syndicated columnist Ann Coulter’s reasonable twitter take:
No, Chuck Schumer, I do not want to see illegals separated from their children.
I want to see them separated from our country.
