Anyone who’s paying even scant attention is aware the unacceptable situation on our porous border has escalated into a mega-issue that has been exploited by the Democrats. They disparately need it, since have nothing else to run on during the upcoming midterm elections. Their fake ‘Russian Collusion’ narrative has evaporated. Impeaching President Trump is a pipe dream. The economy is soaring and unemployment is at a record low. So Dems have zoned in on the issue of separating children from their lawbreaking parents at the border. Liberal churches have weighed in demanding an end to the program, though they do virtually nothing to end the steady stream of humanity, as they look upon the illegals as pew fillers in their declining congregations. Some have provided sanctuary within their walls. Others have worked to turns cities and states into enormous sanctuaries, often with dire results.
Rarely do you hear that these separations have been going on for decades, and reached a zenith under the Obama regime. As we wrote in this June 16th post, “Illegals’ status enhanced by ability to expand Dem voter bloc,” the mainstream media focus is on the Trump administration’s zero tolerance policies, although Newsweek reminds its readers that Barack Obama held more than double the number of children in shelters compared to the Trump White House.
Children are an easily exploitable distraction. What the left actually desires are open, transnational borders. It’s not about family reunification. They want no one detained. Ever.
President Trump signed this Executive Order on Wednesday, specifically addressing family separation. Still, there are obvious facts that should not be ignored:
American citizen parents who commit crimes and are arrested are routinely separated from their children. If they bring their children along on their crime spree, their penalties are enhanced when they are sentenced to prison. Children of divorce, whose custodial parent moves, are separated from their parents each and every day. The difference is they don’t have liberal advocates hysterically exploiting their situations for political gain.
Not all of these children are with their parents, Some are traveling with unrelated persons who use them as a tool to gain entry into the United States. Some children are being sexually exploited by these strangers. Older kids oftentimes travel alone, and once here will act as conduits for other family members. MS-13, a notorious and vicious gang originating in El Salvador has grown and spread throughout the U.S. recruits kids as young as ten.
Don’t be conned by purposely ginned up media hysteria. President Trump has long held that the United States must adopt an immigration system that serves our national interest. He has remained committed to securing our border by construction of a wall, restoring the rule of law, and returning illegal entrants to their countries of origin. Among his priorities is protecting American workers by ending the chain migration scheme. He has eliminated the irrational Visa Lottery, and implemented a merit-based entry system — reforms which advance the safety and prosperity of all Americans while helping new citizens assimilate and flourish.
These remarks and interaction are from the meeting President Trump and Vice President Pence held earlier yesterday with select House and Senate members.
