The President's persecutors on the child immigration issue and their cynical use of these children to emasculate his administration


Democrats: Experts at separating families  . . . "I don't know if the Statue of Liberty is weeping over the plight of non-citizens under the care and protection of Border Patrol agents, but I do know that Democrats have no high ground to stand on when deliberating the issue of separating families.
"They long ago perfected the art of smashing family units into unrecognizable and ineffective debris. 
"Democrats will do the same to any constituency that submits to their electoral will."
What’s inside Sen. Cruz’s emergency legislation to prevent immigrant child separation?  . . . "While the full text of the Protect Kids and Parents Act is not yet available, Cruz claims the bill will curb child separation by doing the following:
  • Double the number of federal immigration judges, from roughly 375 to 750.
  • Authorize new temporary shelters, with accommodations to keep families together.
  • Mandate that illegal immigrant families must be kept together, absent aggravated criminal conduct or threat of harm to the children.
  • Provide for expedited processing and review of asylum cases, so that—within 14 days—those who meet the legal standards will be granted asylum, and those who do not will be immediately returned to their home countries.
"Cruz is up for re-election this fall and will square off against Rep. Beto O’Rourke. Finding bi-partisan support in an immigration issue that’s drawn national outrage certainly won’t hurt him in the race.
"Reporting is all over the place on the border/child separation issue that has only recently drawn an incredible amount of attention from the media. Everyone on every side (including the people that brought them here) are using these children in some way for some particular reason. It’s gross on every side and I have no idea which reports are overblown and which are accurate." . . .
The Trump administration has implored Congress to fix the loop holes that require a child to be removed from their parent’s custody pending hearing. Cruz, it would seem, has accepted the challenge.

Some economic migrants are using children as chits, but the problem is fixable — if Congress acts.  . . . "The Trump administration is throwing as many resources as it can at the border to expedite the process, and it desperately wants the Flores consent decree reversed. Despite some mixed messages, if the administration had its druthers, family units would be kept together and their cases settled quickly."

Press whips up emotion in child migrant feeding frenzy, and workable solutions get obscured . . . "A good piece to read on the background of why illegal immigrants are coming to the border, instead of the embassies, to claim asylum, is by Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review, headlined "The Immorality of Open Borders."  His opener is a perfect summary of all the hard facts he supports with diamond-clarity:" . . .

Comparing separations  
. . . "The real engineers of human separations are not the Department of Homeland Security or the Office of Refugee Resettlement, but organizations like Planned Parenthood and everyone in and out of politics who supports the abortion industry.  Those who profess outrage over the separation of the illegal alien children have no credibility unless they express equal or greater indignation over the appalling human separation called abortion.
