  • Flashback: Obama in Political Bind Over Unaccompanied Immigrant Minors (2014)

    SNIP Under current law, unaccompanied minors from Central America are automatically referred to the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services, which works to place them with family members already residing in the United States while they await a court date. Unaccompanied minors from Mexico, however, are treated differently, and can be screened for immediate return to their home country by U.S. Border Patrol if they do not present human trafficking or refugee concerns. “There isn’t really a policy rationale for treating them differently,”a second White House official said Tuesday, arguing that the current system is allowing too...
  • Freedom Caucus chair unveils bill to end Trump family separation policy

    Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) on Tuesday introduced legislation that would end the separation of immigrant families at the border as the White House scrambles to contain the fallout from the controversial policy. The bill from Meadows, one of President Trump’s top allies in Congress and a conservative ringleader, would allow children to be detained with their parents. The measure would also make it more difficult to seek asylum in the United States — a top priority for conservatives that could stop Democrats from backing the measure.“We need to better enforce our immigration laws, but we can do so...

  • Separating Families At The Border: The Hysteria Overlooks Some Key Facts

    The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who've crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there's plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,...

    Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen called on Congress to change laws she said force the government to separate immigrant children from parents who cross the U.S. border unlawfully and called Democrats who say the Trump administration is using the controversy for political leverage “very cowardly.” Nielsen both defended President Donald Trump’s family separation policy at a White House briefing on Monday and maintained that it wasn’t his creation, but rather a consequence of the government’s prosecution of immigrants apprehended illegally crossing the border. "So I want to be clear on a couple of other things," Nielsen said. "The vast majority,...

    Here's the thing with this policy, logically, you can make arguments that say it makes sense. 1. There are 50,000 people crossing the border illegally each month, and you need a no nonsense policy. Arrest everyone who violates the law. 2. If you are arresting everyone, you can't make exceptions for people coming in with kids and people coming in without kids. 3. Making an exception for people with kids, has led some migrants to admit they are bringing their kids because they think it will help them get in. This has led to the trafficking of children unfortunately as...

    WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz announced emergency legislation Monday evening to keep immigrant families together after they cross the border into the United States. The legislation follows comments Cruz made on Saturday that essentially called for more resources to adjudicate asylum claims. He also called for keeping immigrant kids with their parents as long as those adults are not associated with criminal activity. "All Americans are rightly horrified by the images we are seeing on the news, children in tears pulled away from their mothers and fathers," Cruz wrote in a release. "This must stop. Now. We can end...
  • Myth vs. Fact: DHS Zero-Tolerance Policy

    06/18/2018 6:10:28 PM PDT · by McGruff · 47 replies
    In recent days, we have seen reporters, Members of Congress, and other groups mislead the public on the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) zero-tolerance policy. Federal law enforcement officers have sworn duties to enforce the laws that Congress passes. Repeating intentionally untrue and unsubstantiated statements about DHS agents, officers, and procedures is irresponsible and deeply disrespectful to the men and women who risk their lives every day to secure our border and enforce our laws. Myth DHS has a policy to separate families at the border. Fact DHS does not have a blanket policy of separating families at the border....

    Hillary Clinton on Monday slammed the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" border policy that has left hundreds of children separated from their parents, calling it a "moral and humanitarian crisis." Speaking at a women's event in New York, the former secretary of state said President Trump's claim that breaking apart adults and their children who enter the U.S. illegally is a law (instilled by Democrats is "an outright lie.")

    “They should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are. There are concerns about whether all of them can be sent back, but I think all of them who can be should be reunited with their families… We have to send a clear message: Just because your child gets across the border, that doesn’t mean the child gets to stay. We don’t want to send a message that’s contrary to our laws or will encourage more children to make that dangerous journey.”

    The Trump administration's policy of separating illegal immigrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border doesn't sit well with some people, including former First Lady Laura Bush. In a new op-ed for The Washington Post, Mrs. Bush explained why the White House's zero tolerance policy is "cruel," "immoral," and "breaks her heart." Mrs. Bush compared today's policy of separating families to our treatment of Japanese Americans during World War Two.
  • The Biblical Case for a Big, Beautiful Border Wall

    06/18/2018 9:52:11 AM PDT · by CondoleezzaProtege · 10 replies
    The Bible is filled with examples of walls that are presented as a positive symbol of law and order. Our word for “city,” from the Latin cititas means a walled, protected space. The Hebrew qiryah, used to denote the cities in the Bible, has the exact same meaning. The people inside the walls were protected and allowed to prosper in peace. Cities where the walls have been torn down or reduced to rubble were unprotected and the result was chaos, lawlessness and misery. Nehemiah’s great task in the Bible was to rebuild the wall around Jerusalem. It was the Make...

    WASHINGTON -- Lawmakers who had been trying to gain access to a holding center for undocumented immigrant children were given a tour Sunday starting with a Customs and Border Protection processing center in McAllen, Texas, as DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen declared in a rare tweetstorm that the kids aren't being separated from parents. Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), calling the McAllen facility "the dog kennel," said he "witnessed loads of kids massed together in large pens of chain-linked fence separated from their moms and dads." He and Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) then went to the McAllen–Hidalgo–Reynosa International Bridge, where agents...

Pelosi is travelling with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and other members of Congress. **SNIP** As a result of enforcing that policy, families who cross illegally have been separated from their children, because those accompanying the children are put into the criminal justice system.
