Until Trump's executive order, it was illegal for children to go to jail with their parents. American families are separated everyday when a parent goes to jail, which is very sad for the children, as it is sad for the children of detained illegal immigrants. As Trump calculated, as soon as he signed the executive order, the left is now outraged kids are being held in detention centers with their parents, once and for all exposing the left's true position which is "no borders, no laws, sanctuary for all".
What a bunch of straight up lying BS and equivocating. It's almost like conservative parents don't teach children that lying is wrong but instead say "Create elaborate lies for yourself, it's fun!"
First off, Family Separation was in fact a policy on the books as a result of a court decision in the 90s. Correct. But virtually everything else you've said here is a lie. Do you enjoy Lying? Does lying make you a happy person? How must it feel to be a lying liar who lies?
It's true that Families have been separated in the past due to these regulations. However, those separations were kept to a minimum and handled by immigration courts, not criminal ones - because the offense - unlawful presence - is a misdemeanor that carries a civil penalty, not a criminal one, and because asylum seekers are entitled to a court hearing. And because separating that many people from their children would be barbaric and almost impossible to administer.
So it was never done on this scale until the zero tolerance order. Once it was, as predicted by previous administrations, it became impossible to administer - not that this stopped the "administration" from doing it and making a shit show out of it. A Shit show which could have been stopped at any time by a call from the "president."
Once the executive order was signed - because there was a real threat that congress would make a new law prohibiting this barbarism and only for that reason - the policy came to a partial end. Many children are missing and now we're talking about indefinite detention for migrant families in what amount to concentration camps. Camps built and run, btw, by contributors to the Trump campaign at considerable expense to the taxpayer.
Not that spending money matters when Republicans control things, right? Because all that interest in taxpayer dollars is just LIES, like everything else.
Then there's the false equivalence between "unlawful presence" and people going to jail for actual criminal acts. Because "unlawful presence" is, again, a Misdemeanor. Unlike lying on your SF-86 background check form, which Jared Kushner admitted to. Because all that interest in "the rule of law" is, once again, just lies.
As is, of course, the idea that Democrats want no borders at all. It's just a straight up, bald-faced lie.
Do you lie to your children? Do you lie to your coworkers? What's with all the lying? Why lie so often and in ways so demonstrably untrue?
