I have been tweeting away and posting on Facebook about this but I have yet to compose my thoughts in a blog about what is happening at the border. I have witnessed so much emotion, with so little facts. This is how the Democrats operate though, they go for emotion….and what tugs on ones heartstrings more than pictures of crying children? Nothing, so that is what is being used here and now.
Why are we suddenly addressing and covering a story that has been going on since 2011? I will tell you why -Panic. Sheer and utter panic from the left. Midterms are around the corner and the Democrats have absolutely NO policies to stand on. If they object to what Trump has done for this country they are literally objecting to GOOD happening to America. Job unemployment is at 3.8%. Black Unemployment and Hispanic Unemployment are at HISTORIC lows. Over three million jobs have been created since election day. Consumer Confidence is at a 18 year high. Female unemployment is at 3.4%. And last week President Trump met with North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un, making HISTORY. North Korea has now agreed to begin the process of denuclearization. There is NO NEGATIVE way to look at Trump policies unless you are an America hating liberal. Hard to hear, but that is the TRUTH. So what do liberals do to counter the goodness, pull out an issue that has been happening for YEARS and blame it on Trump.
Trump did not enact a law saying that children cannot stay with their parents if they cross the border illegally -President Bush did in 2008. So I find it really amusing that former First Lady Laura Bush is condemning President Trump for enforcing a law that her husband created! “But President Trump is cruel by enforcing the law,” the left is crying! Really? This is honestly what I am hearing. They are upset that a law is being enforced. They have no solutions, their only idea is to not enforce the law because laws are “mean” and “hurt people’s feelings.” This is how the left thinks. All emotion. If they could have it their way, they would open the borders, let anybody in -criminals too, and subsidize the burden by taxing the rich until all are impoverished and live in a third world country. They have obviously never educated themselves on why an open door policy would NEVER work! For clarity watch the video below.
In 2011 Obama, decided to overrule the law of children being separated from their parents. As a result, the Obama Administration failed to verify the parents or relatives of thousands of children that crossed our southern border in 2011. These children were accidentally placed in the hands of sex traffickers who claimed they were a parent or relative. You see the law that liberals are losing their crap over, actually PROTECTS children. Yep. It prevents sex traffickers and drug smugglers from claiming children that are not theirs. More than often children are brought to the border by sex traffickers, or they are simply used and recycled to get adults across the border. The Trump Administration is taking the time to verify that those who claim a child to be theirs is in fact theirs. If their is suspicion that the child does not belong to those who claim, they are separated.
If an individual is seeking asylum the process takes much longer. Children are only allowed to be held for 20 days according to the law. According to the law children cannot stay in adult detainment facilities, because adult facilities put children in danger, so they are cared for by Health and Human Services or a relative.
Putting children in with adults, who could be criminals, is not safe. Yes, I get it. It is sad that children are separated from their parents. I know that my children would cry and scream if I were separated from them. But the law is the law. And this law has been put in place to PROTECT kids. If Americans are expected to obey the law as seen in the video below, then why are we not expecting others to abide by the law?
If liberals REALLY cared about these children then they would work on implementing different laws for families, but you know what -they don’t want to. Why? Because they want to use this issue that has been around for years to now paint President Trump in a bad light. The left doesn’t want immigration reform. They want an open border and they want to keep it open for future voters. That’s why they don’t want anyone to be required to have an ID to vote. They are preying upon innocent people for votes. So while liberals scream that separating children from their families to protect children is “in humane,” I believe that Not enforcing our immigration laws is inhumane. Keeping our borders open, which encourages children to cross a desert, to then be raped or sex trafficked or murdered is inhumane. You want to be humane? Then secure the border, build the wall and pass proper immigration reform.
