Mr. Trump has spent the majority of his presidency forcing people and departments to follow existing laws.
This is truly a foreign concept to a great many who are used to wink and a nod politics.
Trump is not having any of that... follow the law or change it.
This “Children of criminal aliens” crisis is nothing new. This policy was instituted in 1997 by Bill Clinton, was written into law in 2002 when passed by Congress and was endorsed by First Lady Laura Bush when her husband was president.
Obama’s administration ignored the law for 8 years because it was expedient for him to do so to gain the support of the immigrant community.
Trump has just instructed DHS to FOLLOW the LAW.
