Donald Trump has intensified his discourse on illegal immigration as outrage mounts at his immigration’s policy of dividing parents and children on the US border with Mexico and in an unfriendly tweet, the President stated illegal immigrants are pouring into the United States, and his political opponents wanted them to infest the country.
The White House’s harsh zero-tolerance immigration strategy has seen thousands of children segregated from their parents and kept in enclosures as their families face criminal prosecution.
One report alleged a woman from Honduras had her daughter taken away as she was breastfeeding and when the woman resisted, she was handcuffed but the President has repeatedly and wrongly accused the policy of severing families at the border of his political adversaries, stigmatizing it a Democratic policy and he tweeted that Democrats were the problem.
He stated that they don’t care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest the country and he said that they can’t win on their terrible policies, so they view them as potential voters.
But illegal immigrants can’t vote in the United States.
He went on to explain the constraints of families crossing the border, which the Department of Homeland Security dismissed was an official policy, as a policy and he said that people must always be arrested that are coming into the country illegally.
Of the 12,000 children, 10,000 are being sent by their parents on a pretty dangerous journey, and just 2000 are with their parents, many of whom have attempted to access the country unlawfully on many occasions.
Plus he went on to suggest his administration’s hands were bound on whether to arrest and divide families up at the border, which is incorrect.
He wrote that the best opportunity ever for Congress is to change the ridiculous and obsolete laws on immigration and that they must have strong border security and under US law, accessing the country unlawfully is a crime and detained perpetrators in the United States are always segregated from their children and families.
But until May this year, the United States did not prosecute everyone who crossed the border unlawfully, not least because many of them are asking for refuge, and are escaping persecution or threats of brutality from illegal gangs in Mexico.
Normally, people arrested at the border were kept in immigration detention centres, before being brought before an immigration court to decide whether they should be deported but that all changed with a statement from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, made on May 7th, 2018.
Now, if a child is being smuggled into the country, the United States will prosecute, and that child will be segregated from the family, apparently, as dictated by legislation. So, if you don’t want your child separated, then don’t bring them across the border unlawfully and the United States is now saying that it’s not their problem if somebody does this.
Migrants are being sent to federal prison and brought before a federal judge to determine if they will face prison time but people kept in federal jail can’t be kept together with their children, instead, those children are being put in crates.
Donald Trump’s immigration system is repugnant, outrageous and crazy. In fact, there is really nothing American about Donald Trump and if you go back on his genealogy, his family were German through and through and his German lineage dates back to 1601 and perhaps before that, they all came from Germany. I bet they weren’t put into crates when they came over as immigrants.
Here’s what it says on the Statue of Liberty:
Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
It appears that the American’s have got A levels in bullshit and lies and America is supposed to be the land of the free when it satisfies them. Although the Statue of Liberty doesn’t say anything about hopping over the border unlawfully, it does give them the right to a just trial and to at least know that their children are safe and not caged up like nothing more than animals.
People should be against treating other human beings like excrement, it shouldn’t matter whether they’re in America unlawfully or not, they’re still human beings and should be treated as such. It’s not a Hitler administration (or is it), next he’ll be putting them into concentration type compounds.
They wouldn’t need to escape their own countries if the West hadn’t blasted the crap out of them, to begin with, and the precious orange hobgoblin Donald Trump should take responsibility for his own actions.
Of course, they didn’t blast the crap out of Mexico, but they presumably would have done if Mexico had anything of worth because America doesn’t like other countries to prosper, it only takes what it can get from them and if it’s not worth anything they throw it back.
This is about mankind, taking children from their families which is simply unnecessarily cruel. Prosecute illegal adults all you like, but at least keep their families intact and whilst these children may well have entered the country unlawfully they should not be segregated from their parents or custodians, how anyone can dispute this and put a positive spin on it is shameful.
