Trump Thankfully Relaxes Separation Policy

I tend to write slowly when it's about something like yesterday's summit between Northampton County Council and the county's General Purpose Authority. So it actually took me about seven or eight hours for the story you see below. Because I was engrossed in county government, I had very little time to read about Donald Trump's sudden reversal on his barbaric separation policy. I know the criticism continues, but I'm thankful he changed course. I doubt morality had much to do with his decision. He was obviously concerned this might have an adverse impact on the midterm elections. But for whatever reason, I'm glad that no one is going to separate children from their parents over an illegal entry.

Bernie, "his barbaric separation policy" also occurred under your buddy Obama. Where was your outrage then??? Oh yea -- Obama was a democrat.

When you do find the time to read about Trump's executive surrender Order, try and find where it states the parents and children will be reunited. It may not say that.

I place responsibility for all this on weak and ineffective members of Congress. So full of excuses and blame to cover their own inaction. Totally concerned about the flow of corporate campaign contributions and remaining in office.

Public outcry forced Trump's hand. Now, the ACLU vultures will pounce. We will return to the practice of holding the kids with their parents for no longer than 20 days, then releasing them into the community where they will scurry to sanctuary cities to hide. Only 10% attend a hearing. They will become burdens of the American taxpayer for no good reason.

7:10 This problem is hyped up and was generated at the hands of Obama. There would be no (real or imaginary) act of taking away children from their parents if they came here legally. We can also hold Congress critters responsible for illegals entering this country too.

President Trump sent out a warning not to come illegally. He sent it out again and again. Why is he the bad guy? We are living in times where the Democrats have gone brain dead and off the rails. Jail them all.

Sincere questions for all sides of the debate:

What number of immigrants per year is manageable/acceptable/moral?

Anonymous said...

Democrats have no platform, no optimistic plan for the future of America, only vote for us because Trump is a bad person. Trump has been the first president in recent history that is willing to focus and address the problems head on. The congress lives in fear of making a mistake or being criticized, Congress would much rather engage in back-biting and kick the can down the road. Can-kickers of all parties should be rejected. Lets solve problems, rather than engage in political bull-shit.

7:42 -

The amount of legal entries per year is whatever number AMERICA decides. Not what Mexico decides. We need a wall or other comprehensive barrier that limits entry to whatever AMERICA decides, not to whichever person chooses to step over.

No one knows what's in today's proposals, Congress is keeping that secret. But, if it does not include adequate funding to control entry, the problems will just continue.

Lets give this guy ignoramus of the day. What he is says is false. The currently policy framework was a Trump idea:

"Obama’s guidelines prioritized the deportation of gang members, those who posed a national security risk and those who had committed felonies. Trump’s January 2017 executive order does not include a priority list for deportations and refers only to “criminal offenses,” which is broad enough to encompass serious felonies as well as misdemeanors."

In other words, Trump is doing it to people just for crossing the border who are charged with misdemeanors. But nice try.

Oh Bernie, Bernie Bernie..... Is this you wanted when you urged Trump to use his executive order power?

Trump’s executive order stipulates that instead of separating families of illegals, they will be kept together, in detention facilities, while waiting for their cases to be heard by the courts.

Of course, the Democrats will simply go to the Ninth Curcut and have one of their reliable judges there simply throw it out. Then the kids will be back in the same situation that they were in before.

Better that they just be sent back along with their parents right away, so they can all be kept together back in Mexico.

Hopefully, and because of it's vocal distain for US policy the Catholic Church and it's representatives will help provide for the children in their counties of origin.

My understanding is that most of these immigrants come from nations with a catholic majority with nearly all else being some other Christians sect. Where are the churches beyond their judgement of secular policy?

Why are their no imbedded church representatives riding along with ICE advocating for these Christians?

Donald Trump's barbarism is surpasses only by the churches neglect of it's own flock.

You know, as these illegial kids are being given food, video games, sightseeing trips and whatever else while being held in detention, the elderly in the United states have to choose between buying food to eat or obtaining prescription drugs so they can live.

The difference is what this whole "thing" has been about. As a matter of policy, former presidents have detained families together while trump has detained them separately and has even sent parents back to their countries of origin while their children remain in the US. Most people believe that it is cruel and unusual to detain families separately, which is why trump did it in the first place but it's also why he was forced to stop.

That's not how deportation works. We don't just drop people off on the Mexican side of the border. They are put on a plane and flown back to their countries of origin, which is NOT Mexico in these cases. They have no idea where their children are bc the concentration camps are not always by the border... they are all over the country. And some kids are with foster families.

Parents are self deporting because they think it'll mean they'll be reunited with their children. They aren't. Trump is keeping the children and there is no plan or strategy to reunite.

1:23 disagree on your definition, but let's do with it for a minute. Are reproduction and the process of fetal development "about how nature works". Yes.

Every good Public Relations person knows that there are certain subjects that are especially fruitful in swaying the ignorant, non-thinking public. Perhaps the greatest one is the use of children.

If you watch and listen to the Democrats as they unveil the latest propaganda against Trump using the children separation from their illegal alien parents, then you will not only see the blatant and dishonest propaganda, but you will also see the over-the-top hypocrisy.

(1) Try and focus. This isn't about what Obama did or didn't do. This president has been office for 18 months. He owns what ever happens today.

(2) This has nothing to do with abortion. It's about family separation.

(3) There are no plans of reuniting these kids with their families. God knows how many will be forever separated because parents never received any kind of paperwork whatsoever which could lead to their reunification.

My young grandkids don't know their parents or our last names (we watch them 3 days a week) or any of our phone numbers AND THEY WERE BORN HERE SPEAKING ENGLISH. Face it almost none of these kids will ever be reunited

(4) How many special needs are being left unattended. (Medical records, allergies, learning disabled, etc.) because parents were never consulted before their kids where snatched?

You know, Democrats believe that abortion, particularly partial-birth abortion, justified? So don’t lecture America about children being separated from their families and suffering as a result when you would cheerfully support the “right” of their mothers to abort them.

Being in a detention center because adults used children to get illegally across the border is a lot better than winding up in a plastic trash bag or having your body parts shipped to “researchers.”

@9:59 - this is a false equivalency. The abortion debate should be left for another time. However, no one is going around forcing mothers to have abortions against their will but they were separating children from their parents against their will.

You're placing more value on a fertilized egg or fetus than a 10 year old child. If you are really pro-life, you should be just as against this policy as you are abortion. If you're not you are just as much a hypocrite as the those you posted about.

Possibly housing and cash assistance for a time too. You anti-choicers have no problem forcing women to give birth but you're sure not going to let your tax dollars go to those in need. How can you care about the value of fetal "life" but not the quality of an actual child's life?

The more demand for workers means higher wages for all of us. People who are legally in the United States and entitled to be employed here. Illegals simply dilute the worker pool and keep wages depressed. Plus they cause many problems with other people's social security numbers, as they use fake ones and that can cause problems when filing for IRS refunds or Social Security SSI or other things.

10:45 I think there's a lot of misunderstanding when it comes to the dems stance on immigration. I'm happy to answer any questions to the best of my ability.

You asked "why import poverty? We have plenty of poor people..." That makes sense but he's how that plays out. Trump's solution is to reduce the number of legal immigrants by ending programs like tsp and daca. The problem is that those immigrants are already living among us and they aren't likely going to up and leave at the stroke of a pen, as much as we might want them to. They'll still have to work to support their families, but now they'll have to work without any protections so employers are likely to exploit them. When there's a sudden influx of people desperate to work under-the-table everyone's wages decrease because why pay Joe Schmoe $15 an hour plus insurance, payroll taxes and overtime when Mr. Hernandez will work for $6 an hour flat?

The democrats are willing to increase border security and even fund the wall as we agree that people should not be entering the country illegally. But it would be a mistake to strip the people who are already here legally of their visas because that will hurt working Americans.

Anonymous said...

Here's what I think, Trump is a businessman and he and his family are surrounded by lobbyists and dealmakers. Trump doesn't actually care how many people cross illegally. Why would he? Undocumented workers are good for business (for the owners and uber rich) and it's not like they're moving into his neighborhood. But immigration is a wedge issue so Trump knows it'll get his base fired up. He knows that a hard-lined stance on immigration will get Republicans to the polls. It's a distraction.

If these migrants where Jewish they would be welcomed in the homeland, likewise if they where Muslims, but these migrants are Christians and apparently Christians do not have an equivalent moral code concerning the care of their brethren.

When will the American media begin to refer to these migrants as "illegal Christian aliens" or "undocumented Christian workers"?
