Skip to comments.Trump Retreats on Separating Families, but Thousands Will Remain Apart
Posted on 06/20/2018 6:21:09 PM PDT by tcrlaf
President Trump caved to enormous political pressure on Wednesday and signed an executive order meant to end the separation of families at the border by detaining parents and children together for an indefinite period.
Were going to have strong very strong borders, but we are going to keep the families together, Mr. Trump said as he signed the order in the Oval Office. I didnt like the sight or the feeling of families being separated.
But Justice Department officials said it was not clear whether the practice of separating families could resume after 20 days if a federal judge refuses to give the government the authority it wants to hold families together for a longer period.

Now libs are cheering about "Defeating Trump!!!"
ACLU suing to stop it.
Yep, just as Rush Limbaugh predicted.
Leftists are so transparent.
And this is why you never give leftists anything. It’s never good enough, and they always want more. Their goal is absolute, unquestioned, unchecked power and they will kill to get it.
Hopefully the family units will be adjudicated first and sent back within the 20 days. I hope they set up an assembly line with the door opened onto the tarmac where a big military plane sits to move them back to their country.
Yup. He should rescind the EO and tell them to just send him wall funding if they truly want to avoid these humanitarian crises. He’s not a king and his only option is to execute the laws on the books.
No problem then. It will be once again the fault of the Judge meddling in crafting law when the little ones are in playland while Mommie sits her illegal behind in jail.
I hope that either the court refuses or that the ACLU and a bunch of leftist state attorneys generals sue saying you cam’t hold the children and the solution is to release both children and parents.
If that happens, I expect Trump to hammer the Democrats and the courts and use it as an excuse to get more judicial appointments approved. Then propose a new law to be passed by the Republican House that would pull the legal rug out from under the court settlement.
Send two or three of these poor illegal children to live with crying and hand wringing Liberals including politicians like Schumer, Pelosi, Cumming, Waters, Feinstein, Jerry Brown, Becerra, Kamala Harris, Gavin Newsom, Cuomo, DeBlasio, et al. and send two or three of these children to each of the MSM especially Whorealdo. Let them spend their own money to support the poor children! And, to not be outdone, send two or three to each of the Liberals in Hollyweird.
Immigration policy cannot be made on feelings.
The kids don’t deserve that!
I wouldn't mind seeing the execution of traitors to this country.
How does Trump “retreat” from a policy that wasn’t his to begin with?
Sadly, many American voters born in recent decades are not aware leftist have in fact killed millions of their own people in domestic power struggles. The leftist in our nation's education system and our MSM prefer to avoid the subject.
The left will force POTUS to choose between a completely open border...and family separations.
He will choose separations.
This EO is only so that he could say he tried.
But I do not believe he will stop prosecuting the crime of illegal entry.
What we need is law that allows the Border Patrol to refuse entry in all cases where a visa cannot be presented. And allows immediate removal of those caught here illegally without judicial review or appeal.
Then those families would remain together.
If Republicans in Congress were worth a sh!t, they have it on his desk in 5 days.
But, alas, they are not worth a sh!t. So the stalemate will continue.
They are going to take their victory and make it a defeat.Once they start pursuing lawsuits that would force a catch and release situation, they will lose all the ground they gained.
The liberals boxed themselves on this issue. They should really stop it now if they want to look good to the voters, but I bet you they will screw themselves up by going further on this issue.
He won't have to ... some arsewipe "judge" will do it for him, and he can just wash his hands of the matter ... and go back to enforcing the law.
Just how old are some of these children anyway. . .regardless . . .put parent and child(if they really are) hand in hand and escort them back across the border.
It's similar to the advice I got back when I was trying to be a successful author.
"Every single sentence you write must advance the plot."
People compliment me on them.
Well, I'm working hard to make them compelling.
No wasted words.
The SPECIFICS don't matter, because we're talking VERY small numbers of people.
Remember the HYSTERIA?
The caravan barely existed. It totally petered out.
"Democrats are the party of illegal immigration" is the plot.
They alerted Americans that entire illegal FAMILIES are coming.
Another sentence that advanced the plot.
Democrats are wildly insane.
Every action Trump takes is advancing the plot and subplot.
They always WERE round the bend.
Trump simply does and says things that he knows will goad people into losing it.
Kim Jong Un ends visit to China with a message for the US
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ended a celebratory visit to China's President Xi Jinping on Wednesday with tea, praise, handshakes -- and a message for the US.
The entire piece is malarkey on every level.
Why do I say that?
CIA Director Mike Pompeo visited North Korea more than two weeks ago for a secret meeting with leader Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang, sources confirmed to CNN.
It didn't leak.
Pompeo set up a secure video link between Kim and Trump.
That's the end of the problem.
President Trump did not retreat on anything. He was merely following the same law the Obama and Bush did. They did nothing about it and President Trump has.
