The fact is, Obama, couldn’t get anything of substance done when it comes to immigration laws even when Democrats controlled the House and Senate for 18 months. For political reasons, Obama ended up throwing up a DACA hail Mary towards the end of his presidency to try and save face. Keep in mind, I’m okay with most of DACA but the fact is, Obama didn’t get it through the House and Senate and instead did an end-around which means any President can cancel the program. This is weak domestic policy.
One of the things Liberals are screaming about is how President Trump (in their opinion), is destroying families. Once again, he’s not doing anything that goes against current immigration laws. His Administration is clearly saying that if you illegally cross the border and you’re caught, that you’ll be tied up in court awaiting deportation so of course your children will be placed in custody pending the outcome of the hearing. No one would realistically want to subject their children to the massive number of illegals (some of which could be dangerous), so it makes perfect sense to separate the parent(s) from the children. Trump’s latest Executive Order is an attempt to do the best of their ability to keep the families together in safer locations than the general population of illegals.
If they have legitimate political asylum claims, then they can get the children back but until then our immigration system is going to make sure the children are placed in the best, safest, location and there are plenty of foster families who help in this effort. The children are certainly being treated better than the way they were in the countries their families are running from; you ever hear this truth from liberals?
Liberals also claimed that President Trump was responsible for children being locked up in cages which ended up being a lie although most of them didn’t recant their stories. They claimed that 1,500 children were misplaced…also a lie. The children were sent ahead of their families to get them over the wall first and then use the leverage to try to get in themselves. The children weren’t missing, they were being held in custody until their parents could be found. It was all a blatant lie spun to fit the Left’s narrative that Trump, and Republicans in general, are evil. Time magazine even head a cover shot of a young girl crying stating that she was separated from her family, but it wasn’t true, she was with her mom. This is the kind of fake news that Trump always brings up.
The bottom line is the Left lies constantly about what’s going on at the borders. The one thing Liberals leave out time and time again about immigration is that these people are crossing our borders illegally. They are lawbreakers thus there should be consequences or else the flood gates would be opened. Trump isn’t the problem. Trump is following the law. This doesn’t stop the Left from lying again and again to push their policies towards open borders and more voters for the Democrat Party.
