You show me babies and not teens who crossed without an adult. We all know about these kids who came unaccompanied by an adult. That was humane
because 1) they're not babies who don't understand and 2) they were immediately cared for and sheltered.
Please don't cloud the issue. It's not the same thing at all. And if you weren't so stubborn you'd see that. BUT...
Its not my responsibility to find evidence supporting your claim. You do that. Show me something real, something factual, something I can verify
myself and I will look at it with honest eyes. But all you have is opinion. Sorry, but that doesn't cut it.
Associated Press fact check showed my statements were true. All you had was snopes saying the policy of enforcement had changed but not the law
itself. And since the pictures of actual enforcement under obama have been verified as fact your argument is blatantly false.
To avoid dealing with that inconvenience you fall back on the "what about the babies" card because the what about the children card didn't work. Show
me something, anything, that proves what you are saying about babies that is not being done for their own safety and well being.
For that matter, what kind of psychopath makes a dangerous trek across 2000 miles of scorching desert to enter a country illegally with an infant? You
want to blame someone for putting those babies in danger how about aiming your moral outrage at the parents?
Four sitting Presidents had a chance to change this policy but only one is actually doing it and you find fault with him for it. This policy started
because democrats said it was in the children's best interests to be taken out of detention after 20 days and put in foster sponsor care, usually with
other family members. The younger the child the more difficult it is to do so. There are numerous health issues to consider, not just who has
temporary custody of them. What if none of these babies has ever been vaccinated for anything? What if they are carrying, oh lets say, polio, or TB,
or any of a number of illnesses we would like to prevent? Being responsible takes time. Being wreckless and careless happens very quickly.
Trump didn't start this but you blame him. Trump doesn't act quickly enough on it so you blame him. If he acts too quickly and someone gets hurt, you
blame him. The bottom line is you just want to complain and you will no matter what happens.
Unless the POTUS is a democrat. Then you won't say a damn thing.
