Separating Families At The Border-The Left’s New Tactic Against Trump


The latest jab at Trump by the left is the situation of kids being separated from the parents at the border. This is being blown way out of proportion and has been going on since the Bush and Obama days. Many of the pictures the media is showing of kids in cages were either taken during the Obama years or were staged at protests. Trump is trying to fix this loophole he inherited. The other day at her daily press briefing, Sarah Sanders was yelled at by an unruly reporter for this saying to her loudly and obnoxiously, “Sarah you have kids, how would you feel if this was your kid?” Sarah very politely, but firmly made him look foolish – which he was – told him this has been going on a long time before the current administration.

The left is trying to push this false narrative of  Immigrants Seeking Asylum Are Being Punished For Seeking Asylum. This is plainly untrue as well. Immigrants who come to points of entry to seek asylum aren’t actually illegally in the country – they’re not arrested. They’re processed through ICE, and their children stay with them. If, however, illegal immigrants cross the border illegally, the Trump administration now treats them as criminals. If they choose deportation, they aren’t separated from their kids; if they choose to apply for asylum, they stay in the country longer than 20 days, and their kids have to be removed by operation of law.

Jeff Sessions was on with Laura Ingraham the other night and said there are plenty of entry portals where they can come in legally and families won’t be separated. When they come across illegally that’s when we have to separate them to find out if they are really are a family or just other illegals using the kids.

These are the ones they are separating the kids from not the real parents. This has been going on since the Bush years and Obama, but libs are using it to protest Trump.Through a series of legal loopholes, minors are smuggled through the southern border with illegal aliens posing as family units in order to eventually be released into the country through the “Catch and Release” program. Catch and Release allows foreign nationals to be released into the U.S. while they await immigration and asylum hearings through these legal loopholes.

On his show yesterday Rush Limbaugh so eloquently explained saying :

They have opened their borders in the U.K., Germany, you name it. So we have a perfect storm all orchestrated by Donald Trump to renegotiate everything, every single little deal with these countries. We are finally deciding that it’s no longer required of us to take one for the team. Trump is standing up for America and fair deals for America. As such, “Economic Growth in the United States Leaves the World Behind.” They have to change the subject, folks. They can’t report any of this. They can’t report on the Gallup satisfaction numbers.

They can’t remind people of the low unemployment numbers. They certainly can’t remind African-Americans that they’re doing much better than they ever have done under any Democrat administration, but especially that of Barack Hussein O. Let’s throw in the fact that there’s actually been a head-to-head sat down with the communist tyrant thug of North Korea, Kim Jong-un. Consumer confidence is racing. They have to change the subject. So what do they do when they change the subject?

Well, they either use the race card, or they throw down the card that “Republicans hate X.” Republicans hate kids. Republicans hate brown people. Republicans hate immigrants. Republicans this and that. That’s how they — and the media is right in on it. And I’m gonna demonstrate to you today that this is a manufactured crisis in the sense that nothing’s new here. This policy has been in place for years and was widely practiced during the Obama administration.

The only difference is the media didn’t tell you about it then. The Obama administration wanted it hidden, and so it was. But there’s nothing new under Trump, except an attempt to fix it by holding people accountable to the law. The only way circumstances like this can happen is if people are allowed to violate immigration law and not be punished.

There is a lot of leftwing outrage at Donald Trump for deciding to separate children from their parents at the border if they are illegal aliens. The left, in fact, went nuts over an ACLU report that showed rampant child abuse from children detained without their parents. The problem was that the report covered 2009-2014, a period when Barack Obama was President.

Members of the media who blew up the story quickly deleted tweets once they found out Barack Obama was in charge. Apparently, abused kids only matter if they can be used to attack Donald Trump.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said on Monday that some “well-coached” people illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border are using children to pose as families to gain entry.

“From October 2017 to this February, we have seen a staggering 315 percent increase in illegal aliens fraudulently using children to pose as family units to gain entry into the country,” she told the annual National Association of Sheriff’s meeting in New Orleans, the Daily Mail reports. “This must stop. All this does is put the children at risk.”

“We do not have the luxury of pretending that all individuals coming to this country as a family unit are in fact a family,” Neilsen added. “We have to do our job. We will not apologize for doing our job.”

Neilsen said Monday that the children often represent a well-publicized “get-out-of-jail-free-card” that the Trump administration stopped handing out with the adoption of a zero-tolerance policy two months ago. She also said America’s low bar for establishing asylum-seekers’ “credible fear” of persecution or physical harm in their home countries.

A journalist at the daily White House press briefing Monday played an audio tape of crying illegal immigrant children while Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was defending the administration’s policy of separating families who enter the country illegally.

Near the end of Ms. Nielsen’s press briefing, while she was still talking, the audio recorded by ProPublica could be heard playing on a journalist’s laptop or another electronic device in the briefing room. The sound of the crying children went on for more than 30 seconds; it wasn’t clear who was playing the tape during Ms. Nielsen’s presentation.

The recording of the sobbing of 10 Central American children, separated from their parents one day last week by U.S. immigration authorities at the border, went viral earlier in the day. The children scream “Mami” and “Papá” repeatedly.

It didn’t appear that Ms. Nielsen could hear the sounds from her position at the podium.

This is all contrived drama by the left and the DNC. Their chances of winning in November are diminishing by the day, the economy is booming, more African Americans have jobs than in the prior 8 years under Barry and the administration is correcting the anti-American foreign policy agenda of the prior regime. So now, so-called journalist (Pravda would be proud of this woman) are playing likely fraudulent tapes of children sobbing. How low can the left go depends on the day.

Don’t want a problem at the US border? DON’T CROSS IT ILLEGALLY? Bleeding heart liberals said nothing when Obama did the same damn thing.

Some use it as their way to get in the US. They send their kid on ahead, then after a short period, whine and cry about their kid being here and then they try to get chain migration to kick in. They aren’t doing it for their kid, they’re doing it for themselves.

This went on all the time Obama was president but since this administration decided it was going to enforce the law EQUALLY for EVERYONE the media has gone crazy to make this sound like these children are being torn from the arms of a sobbing mother and throw in a shed.
