There is no federal law mandating children and parents be separated at the border; a policy resulting in that outcome was enacted in May 2018.


Pretty clear to most that something new has taken place.

The difference is now every crossing is considered a crime.

So what part of kids can't go to jail with their parents do you not get?

doesn't matter, if Trump said it was the 'dems', then it will be a cold day in hell before any of the fans are convinced otherwise.

besides, the economy is going great!

I truly don’t see the issue. The parents are in jail so the kids can’t be with them. What are the alternatives that people expect to happen?

Is there some part of "illegal immigration" which confuses you, dude? Seriously now, I just can't imagine why every illegal crossing of the US border would be "considered a crime." It's baffling to me. Why in the world would every violation of US border law be treated as a criminal act?

He has to create a 3rd thread to talk in circles on for pages and pages not backing up any of his claims or accusations, telling people how stupid they are , and then totally ignoring the answers he gets

Only to drop another 3 posts that have been answered ad-nauseum and continue the thread insanity because:

1. Hes either Trolling
2. He literally cannot understand simple concepts
3. Hes a teen that cant think critically
4. Theres some sort of unfortunate injury or problem that doesnt allow them to digest information

So two strikes against them, crossing illegally without seeking asylum and trafficking children.

It could just as easily be said
"Doesn't matter whether the law is what it is, if Trump is pushing for it to be enforced, then it will be a cold day in hell before any of his haters don't find fault with the policy."

This, this is freaking asinine. Let's get into a political pissing match over illegal aliens! Oh, that just makes all the god damned sense in the world, ya? Destruction from the outside in... whether they're allowed to swarm in unabated or whether they run into legal resistance, one way or another they're determined to take us down the crapper and the liberals are all for it because they don't see illegals, they see potential Democrat voters wooed by handouts, health care, free education, and pandering.

I'm against separating families... they can all go back to their home country. Problem solved.

YES! Obvious answer to problem is obvious, but watch the obtuse find fault.

could you expand on your point?

i am interested in it since it is the only post with even a hint of anything other than attacks.

If you'd stop dumping logic and common sense down the toilet every time you make a thread you wouldn't have this problem.

We always argue, like it's one way or the other, never considering other options. We don't need to separate families.

We can have compassion and still stop families from crossing the border.

How hard would that be? If we catch a family crossing the border...we round them up and we "detain' them until we can return them. All the while keeping them together. It's really not that hard. LOL

What's the real issue? Cost? Cheaper to keep everyone together. Logistics? Easier to keep them together. Processing? We just gave our military a trillion dollars...let's send some money and hire some contractors to process. More agents? I've said this all along...we don't need a wall, we need to fix what we already have and hire a few more agents and give them the resources they are requesting. Not what we think they need.

Why the secrecy too...when our own elected officials aren't even allowed in these "Camps". Seems shady.

I know right? And it seems every murder is considered a crime too. it's all a scam.

Depends on what is going on.

How do we know these kids actually belong to the people they crossed with?

Check this out:
Obama administration placed children with human traffickers, report says

Maybe we should stop with the hysterical garbage and figure out what is actually going on.

The problem is, and in all fairness it started under Mr. Obama, that we (The US) are setting up Private/For-Profit concentration camps for immigrants with no standards or accountability.

It was being discussion this morning on Lila Garrett's "Connect the Dots" on KPFK

Monday June 18, 2018 7:00 to 8:00 am

Many of the children are unattended minors sent by their parents to escape gang or other violence. These sibling groups are being broken up, not allowed to hug one another and further being traumatized by this barbaric political stunt.

exactly.. but logic dictates that you would still keep a group together with the children they crossed with. At least at first. You don't just rip children away.. That's how you figure out what's really going on. Still pretty easy.
