  • The Importance of a Family Meal Together

    metallicman ^ | June 2018 | editorial staff
    One of the things that I have come to appreciate the most was the family meal that we had when I was growing up as a child. During my early childhood we would hold formal “sit down” meals in the Dining Room. Us children each had our own roles / chores in regards to this. On Sunday we would have the largest and most elaborate meals. Mealtime was the opportunity when we could all talk about our day, our hopes and dreams, and things that interested us. At the time, I didn’t realize how important it was. Then, during the...
  • U.S. judge, Trump administration spar over immigrant child safety

    A U.S. judge struck back late Friday night at a Trump administration claim that speeding up the reunification of immigrant families separated at the U.S.-Mexican border would put children at risk, saying the government had either misunderstood his instructions or was “acting in defiance of them.” Last month, in a case brought by the American Civil Liberties Union, U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw ordered the government to reunite as many as 2,500 children and parents separated as part of U.S. President Donald Trump’s efforts to combat illegal immigration. The separations came after families crossed the border illegally or filed for...
  • Make Babies Great Again: Hungarian Fertility Rates Rise, Turns Back Demographic Decline

    Hungary’s pro-family culture has resulted in a rising fertility rate for married women which is “winding back the clock” on demographic decline — a trend once deemed irreversible in Europe and used by globalists to justify mass migration from the third world. “The country is not just experiencing a fertility spike; Hungary is winding back the clock on much of the fertility and family-structure transition that demographers have long considered inevitable,” writes the author of “Is Hungary Experiencing a Policy-Induced Baby Boom?” from the Institute for Family Studies website. “That’s unusual,” author Lyman Stone wrote, “as most countries around the...
  • DHS Refuses to ‘Reunite’ Children with Adults Who Aren’t Their Parents

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) held a joint call Tuesday to announce their efforts to comply with a June 26 federal court ruling mandating children under five years old in HHS custody be “reunited” with parents if they were separated at the border. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw, in response to an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lawsuit, set a July 10 deadline to reunite the families and refused to provide additional time for the government to use DNA testing to determine if the people in question are even the 102...
  • Judge 'very encouraged' by Trump's 'progress' reuniting separated illegal-immigrant families

    U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw on Monday said he was "very encouraged" by the Trump administration's "real progress" in reuniting illegal-immigrant families separated at the border. More than 50 immigrant children under age 5 will be reunited with their parents by Tuesday's court-ordered deadline for action by Trump administration, and the families will then be released into the U.S., a government attorney said Monday. That's only about half of the 100 or so toddlers covered by the order, but Sabraw said the news so far has been encouraging. "There's no question that the parties are meeting and conferring," Sabraw said...

    The first lady may have found her White House calling. Late last month she returned to the border to speak with officials at a U.S. Border Patrol facility in Tucson, Ariz., where she held a roundtable discussion with those on the front lines of the immigration crisis. “I’m here to support you and give my help, whatever I can,” said Mrs. Trump. It’s her second trip to the border, and she seems laser-focused on the issues there affecting children. “She cares about children deeply and when the news started to hit I think she was very concerned and wanted to...

    DNA tests are being performed on children and parents in an attempt to reunite migrant families separated at the US border, said a federal official with knowledge of the reunifications. "The safety and security is paramount, and it is not uncommon for children to be trafficked or smuggled by those claiming to be parents," the official said. "To our knowledge, this is a cheek swab and is being done to expedite parental verification and ensuring reunification with verified parents due to child welfare concerns."

    Contrary to reports of mass confusion at the Southwest Border, where the Department of Health and Human Services is under a court order to reunite children with the parents who brought them here illegally, "there is no confusion whatsoever," HHS Secretary Alex Azar told Fox News Thursday morning. Azar said his department is working against a court-imposed deadline to reunite the 11,800 children with the people who are claiming to be their parents. The process includes DNA testing. "Every child is accounted for," Azar said. "We know every child, where they are. We know the record -- the last time...

    A 57-year-old man is accused of cruelty and child desertion after witnesses saw him throw his children out of a car and drive away on Rampart Street with one holding onto the bumper Friday night (June 29), according to New Orleans police. Kenneth Watson was booked into Orleans Justice Center jail the next day on three counts of child desertion and four of cruelty to a child, court records show. Witnesses told police they saw Watson get out of a car after it stopped suddenly on North Rampart near the intersection of St. Peter Street around 11:30 p.m. Friday and...

    It’s about time… finally someone does a great job of explaining why President Trump’s plan is 100 times better and safer than Obama’s plan. Hopefully, whistleblower Jason Piccalo will go on TV and start screaming this to the public. I hope he gets on Hannity or Tucker Carlson to show what has happened to many children during the Obama Administration. This is important! While everyone on the left is screaming about the illegal alien children being put into detention centers, it’s important to remember that the Obama policy of catch and release put the kids in danger by placing some...

    Mexico has asked the United Nations to intervene to prevent the United States from separating illegal immigrant families. OH THE HORROR!!! No question about it from an emotional standpoint the Optics on this are horrible Yeah it's a bad deal but who caused it?

We have millions of American citizens sitting in...

    Parents who share pictures of their children on social media are putting their human rights at risk, the United Nations has warned. The UN's special rapporteur Joseph Cannataci said that "strong guidelines" were needed to preserve the rights of children whose parents upload video and images of them. During a mission to the UK to assess the privacy situation he also found that kindergarten-age children were being surveilled using CCTV at school and in their bedrooms. At a press conference on Friday he suggested there could be a rising number of cases involving children who argue their rights have been...

    After President Trump signed an executive order last Wednesday, effectively ending “family separations” occurring at the US-Mexico border where illegal immigrants are detained after crossing into the United States, Democrats and the liberal media started beating their chest. “We won! We made him cave, this is the most embarrassing moment for Trump and his presidency,” leftists exclaimed. The mainstream media alleged the president’s base supporters were tragically saddened and disappointed the Commander-in-Chief didn’t have the guts to stick to his policy and is even less committed to securing the border than Obama was. Rather than declaring victory after President Trump...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) shared her experience touring an immigration center on Sunday, saying it was a "disturbing picture." "It's a disturbing picture. There are children by themselves. I saw a six-month-old baby, little girls, little boys," Warren told reporters. "There are mothers with their babies, with small children. Family units are together if it's a very small child, but little girls who are 12 years old are taken away from the rest of their families and held separately. Or little boys," she continued. "They're all lying on concrete floors in cages. There's just no other way to describe it."
