Oh, the mainstream media and the Democratic Party have really sunk their teeth into this one.
Not a day goes by that we do not read or watch some new story decrying the abject heartlessness of the Trump administration’s decision to RIP children away from their parents at the border. Just today, we heard that this puts the president on par with Adolf Hitler. We heard that migrant detention centers are equivalent to concentration camps. We heard that child separation policies will have long-lasting, irreversible effects on the kids. We read that Jeff Sessions is using slavery apologia to defend the policy. Boy, if you didn’t know better, you’d really think this was one evil, cold, brutal regime.
And unfortunately, there are a hell of a lot of Americans who actually DON’T know better.
In an interview on Friday, an anonymous official from the Department of Homeland Security fought back against the fake, biased coverage in fiery remarks to reporters.
“We are left with a choice of whether to enforce the law at the border or to allow individuals who enter the country illegally with children to go free and not face consequences for their illegal actions,” the official said. “Advocates want us to ignore the law and to give people with families a free pass.”
This. So much this.
Does it never occur to any of these idiots in the media that law enforcement officers separate parents from their children every single day of the year in every single town in America? That is the nature of being arrested! You don’t get to take your kids to jail with you, do you? No, not the last we heard. Where are all the sorrowful think pieces on how evil it is to take a thief, a rapist, a murderer away from his children?
The underlying thing you have to accept if you want to join in the outrage about all this is simple: Illegal immigration should no longer a thing that exists. Not that it should be eradicated, mind you, but that it should no longer be illegal at all. Or, at most, it should get you a slap on the wrist. Maybe you have to pay a fine of $300 or something if you’re caught coming into the country illegally. Take care of that at your next court appearance, and you’re good to go. Enjoy the welfare, amigo!
We can’t go on with that kind of policy. And until Democrats come around to the idea of changing the law so that the Trump administration no longer needs to take a zero tolerance policy at the border, this will have to continue. Build the wall, and we don’t have to arrest illegal immigrants at this rate.
But no, Democrats would rather use this as a campaign issue than actually do anything about it. They are hypocrites in every sense of the word, and it’s about time Hispanics saw through their phony crocodile tears.
