Trump doubles down on family separation policy
The Hill ^ | 06/18/18 | Jordan Fabian

President Trump on Monday doubled down on his controversial policy of separating children from parents when families illegally cross the border, while also calling on Congress to change laws to end it.

In a series of tweets, Trump appeared to justify the strategy by claiming criminals are using children in a Trojan horse–style operation to cross the U.S. border.

“Children are being used by some of the worst criminals on earth as a means to enter our country,” he wrote. “Has anyone been looking at the Crime taking place south of the border. It is historic, with some countries the most dangerous places in the world. Not going to happen in the U.S.

Trump also warned that the U.S. must avoid the migration problems affecting Europe and blasted the policies and government of Germany, a close ally.

The president falsely claimed that crime in Germany is “is way up” and said migrants “have so strongly and violently changed their culture,” a phenomenon he said is generating backlash overseas.

Reunite the kids with their parents and drive them over the border to be together in Mexico. For that matter, get a bus and reunite the DACA people with their loving families down in Mexico too. It’s the loving thing to do.

“The president falsely claimed that crime in Germany is “is way up””

The Germans would be amazed at that statement.

The president correctly claimed that crime in Germany is way up.

That is why the Leftists are always weeping about how Trump lies. They count the accusations of Trump’s lies, not any actual lies.

The President didn’t falsely claim anything.

Proof? Merkel’s government may fall next week because of crime from immigrants.

Suck on that Hill.

We need to bring up Bill Clinton’s policy regarding the treatment of children who are in the country illegally. Remember Elian Gonzalez?

“Proof? Merkel’s government may fall next week because of crime from immigrants.”

Exactly!

If things were going so great, Germany would be building statues to Frau FUBAR.

Democrats don’t care about these children, Obama had the exact same policy and they didn’t raise a peep. This is about pulling on the emotional heartstrings of the suburban, mini-van driving sucker...I means soccer...moms right before the election.

“...criminals are using children in a Trojan horse–style operation to cross the U.S. border.”

Rats and proggies know that tactic well — they’ve been using it with our children for decades, to get ignorance, abortion, queerness, drug culture and male-hating entrenched here.

We here know how Democrats and progressives view children, and for that I despise them.

It isn’t the Trump policy, it’s been the policy for years.

Having read the original article and the comments on the website, I have a suggestion. Let’s load anyone who comes over illegally onto a plane to Germany or Great Britain since those places are so great with almost zero crime rates according to leftists. Imagine how well the islamists and MS13 members would get along with each other while the jelly spines in Europe sit by and watch their cultures destroyed.

My love for Trump doubles every time I read an article like this.

Attack Trump? He’ll double down and punish you till you cry “Uncle”

Other Republicans would yelp like a whooped hound and head under the porch!

Love this man!
