Cages. Doesn't that sound horrible. That will make a parent cringe, and the low-informed or easily duped by Fake News Media, will get all steamed up and take to Twitter or FB or even make threats against people that are working hard to address these problems while ensuring the safety and security of these minors.

There is a chain link fence around the neighborhood community pool where my friend lives.

There is a chain link fence around the daycare facility at the end of the subdivision where my niece lives.

There is a chain link fence around the playground nearby.

There is a chain link fence around the schoolyard.

There is a chain link enclosure within stadiums where separate activities are going on.

These are not cages, but rather safety enclosures. Show me a child put in a dog kennel and locked up and I will be the first to rise up.

And how is anyone to know what they're going through? We know kids are being detained, we know they've been held in cages at some point, at least. We know a US legislator was denied access and we know the propaganda arm of the government released five staged photos days later. Bottom line is we don't know what conditions the kids are living under, apart from carefully staged info, and that should be enough for a decent person to be outraged about.

If it turns out that the kids are not in cages, and have not been at any point, that they have pool tables and all get two scoops of ice cream, and that they have uninhibited access to the phones so they can keep in contact with their families and not suffer trauma -- well, that would be something. What are the chances of it being the second scenario, which would be the humane one?



do you even see what you are doing? option 1, be outraged, as the CNN machine told you to be. Option 2, there is a chance they are lying to you, but that is a crazy idea so it should be dismissed out of hand.

the dog whistle you folks are falling for is why the opposition is opposing you right now.


WASHINGTON (AP) — Bowing to pressure from anxious allies, President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday ending the process of separating children from families after they are detained crossing the U.S. border illegally. It was a dramatic turnaround for Trump, who has been insisting, wrongly, that his administration had no choice but to separate families apprehended at the border because of federal law and a court decision. The news in recent days has been dominated by searing images of children held in cages at border facilities, as well as audio recordings of young children crying for their parents — images that have sparked fury, question of morality and concern from Republicans about a negative impact on their races in November's midterm elections. Until Wednesday, the president, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and other officials had repeatedly argued the only way to end the practice was for Congress to pass new legislation, while Democrats said he could do it with his signature alone. That's what he did on Wednesday. "We're going to have strong, very strong borders, but we're going to keep the families together," said Trump who said he didn't like the "sight" or "feeling" of children separated from their parents. He said his order would not end the "zero-tolerance" policy that criminally prosecutes all adults caught crossing the border illegally. The order aims to keep families together while they are in custody, expedite their cases, and ask the Department of Defense to help house families.


so from now on, the kids can go to jail with their parents. is that what you wanted?

What they really want is for the free flow trafficking to continue. Somebody is making $$$$$$$ off this activity. So, they stir the stupid and ill-informed up into a frenzy to keep it going.

Watch those with the loudest mouths.

I'll throw your whole assumption based reply out with this: I don't watch CNN. In fact I don't have TV and I don't watch news.

I do my own research and educate myself, on everything, 100%.

What now?

Oh well then I would think you start your crusade with American children? Nah! The press tells you these kids are more worthy of your outrage.

My question is way doesn't fox or cnn talk with the children themselves on camera?
Why don't we see them asking the adults that are detained what it's like to be detained?


Why aren't we hearing more from the people involved??

(Forgive me. I’m throwing this out there for a little levity: youtu.be... )


But seriously, if the MSM had access, what should be asked instead of what I asked?

Your question is the one we should be asking them.

If they say it's better then great.

If they don't then we find out why and change things.

lol That is funny.

Your sharp. I like the showing of our spoiled mindsets. juxtaposed with the suffering that the immigrant children have suffered and are probably not suffering right now.

I bet if their interviewed there wouldn't be a whiner among them.
