Let’s remember that just a couple short years ago the Democrats were all for coming down hard on it illegal immigrants at least, that’s what they said. Thing is of course they never did it… Apparently being unwilling to sacrifice a number of illegal voters who will do jobs Americans won’t do, that being specifically to vote Democrat.. And they get mad when somebody else, in this case, Trump, actually follows through on those promises.

So now we see Chuckles the Clown Schumer…

.Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer(N.Y.) on Tuesday dismissed a legislative proposal backed by Republican leaders to keep immigrant families together at the border, arguing that President Trump could fix the problem more easily with a flick of his pen.

“There are so many obstacles to legislation and when the president can do it with his own pen, it makes no sense,” Schumer told reporters. “Legislation is not the way to go here when it’s so easy for the president to sign it.”

Asked if that meant Democrats would not support a bill backed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to keep immigrant families together while seeking asylum on the U.S. border, Schumer said they want to keep the focus on Trump.

So what we have here is the Democrats using these kids as hostages to their own political power grab.

I’ve been saying it for years now and longtime readers know this well…

The worst thing in the world you can do to a Democrat is provide an actual solution to a problem because the moment you do that, you’ve removed their ability to demagogue.

Remember something else also that I’ve been saying about all of this for years now…. This is not about Trump. For all of their screaming and bitching that they want to keep the focus on Trump, the Democrats wouldn’t be reacting any differently to anybody else in the White House, who was not Hillary Rodham Clinton.

  1. “In March of 1993, The United States Supreme Court issued a ruling in Reno v Flores. (Yes, “That” Reno. Janet Reno, Bill Clinton’s first Attorney General who ordered that young Elian Gonzalez be torn from his family’s arms while hiding in a Miami closet. You might remember the iconic photograph.)

    The Court in Flores decided that minors could not be incarcerated with the adults accompanying them across the United States border illegally. The decision was the result of a long dispute in how to best care for these children while the adults were detained for criminal proceedings.

    When aliens cross the border illegally, they are incarcerated until their criminal case is decided. The understandable argument at the time was “why should children be incarcerated while their parents are in jail?” It seemed a fundamental violation of international human rights. Makes sense, right?

    As a result, The Flores case drew a line in the sand. Children could not be incarcerated with their parents or accompanying adult while being held for illegal immigration violations. And a subsequent 1997 agreement stipulated that children must be placed in a safer environment where they could enjoy certain privileges, including education, a clean, safe environment and other normal life cycle amenities that incarcerated individuals do not enjoy.

    It was considered a “victory” for human rights. By separating adult and child, we protected the children, reducing any harm done to them for their parent’s or accompanying adult’s decisions.

    A lot has happened since then. However; bottom line, these juvenile, shelters have been operating in accordance with the law, and overseen by the Department of Health and Human Services to protect those children from the hazards of parental incarceration since 1997.

    So, since Donald Trump was running his real estate empire, selling wine and casinos in 1993, we are left to determine just how he managed to orchestrate this cruel “separation of immigrant parent and child” 25 years BEFORE he was President of the United States. The obvious answer is, he didn’t. He had nothing to do with establishing this United States immigration policy. Today, he simply enforces it.

    This one story illustrates how important it is for us to do our research regarding today’s headlines. The Corporate Media either refuses to do the research, is incapable of doing the research or has done the research and decided to lie to you about its findings. Either way, this would make the Corporate Media lazy, incompetent or just plain deceptive. Liars, if you will.”

  2. IMHO, the proper first reference to Reno, is Janet “The Butcher” Reno.

  3. Janet preferred FLAMER.

    She was often heard screaming “Burn the Bastards!”
