Democrats are in full shriek mode, having found an issue they think they can milk to the max, namely that junior illegal aliens are being separated from their criminal parents by the cruel Trump administration — oh, the horror.
A few days ago, Democrat Leader Pelosi remarked, “They’re doing away with children being with their moms. . . I don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country.”
Meanwhile, liberals forget that their beloved Obama precipitated a run on the border with his ill-considered invitation to all of Central America a few years ago that caused many child-endangering situations as a result.
Below, parents from Central America imperiled their toddlers by transporting them hundreds of miles across Mexico on the top of a freight train toward the US where they intended to break in as illegal aliens.
As DHS Secretary Nielsen observed a few weeks ago, “In the United States that if you break the law, you go to jail and you’re separated from your family. It shouldn’t be any different for illegal immigrants.”
To that point, around two million American children live apart from an incarcerated parent, but Democrats are not squawking up a storm about citizen separation suffering. Dems express copious sympathy for foreign kids, but it’s just the usual media-focused outrage as the pols hope to turn fake emotion into winning the House in November.
In fact, current housing for alien kiddies is deluxe, same as it was under Obama a few years ago. There was even a Congressional hearing in 2012 titled Holiday on ICE. Still, the quarters weren’t nice enough for some picky invaders, as I blogged in 2015, Freebie America Inadequate for Discriminating Illegal Aliens.
Back then, Fox News host Greta van Susteren raised a howl about the excessive luxury of the accommodations:
Times certainly have changed.
Below, in the Karnes County Texas shelter, illegal alien kiddies were offered an array of free stuff, training them for a life of mooching off US citizens.
The invader strategy du jour is to claim asylum, but former ICE Director Tom Homan recently noted that 80 percent of such claims are rejected, revealing applicants to be plain illegal aliens looking to steal jobs, welfare and other free stuff from American taxpayers.
There was a time when poor people around the world would fight against oppression in their home countries, but now it’s just easier to relocate illegally to somewhere rich and scrounge up a more agreeable lifestyle.
