(National Sentinel) Self-Separation: The hard-Left of the Democratic Party — which is growing, by the way — is trying to make POTUS Donald Trump’s immigration and border security policies a major campaign issue in 2018 and beyond.
Addicted to a flood of illegal aliens whom they hope to someday turn into Democratic voters, the hysterical Left has been whipping up supporters into a frenzy blaming POTUS for everything from civil rights abuses to “ripping migrant children from their mothers.”
Their solution is absurd: Dismantle the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and back off border enforcement altogether.
But when do Democrats hold migrant adults responsible for attempting break into our country with their children?
Oh, and when are Democrats going to hold migrant parents responsible for dumping their kids in the U.S. for American taxpayers to support?
As Breitbart reports, that is a new phenomenon as, once again, illegal aliens game our immigration system:
The number of Central Americans migrants who have left their children in the United States has risen to at least 142 and may reach several hundred, according to a July 23 agency statement to a district court judge in California.
The rising total of self-separating families shows the foreign migrants are gaming the federal government’s asylum process to deliver their children to in-laws and relatives living in the United States. Once delivered by government officials, the migrants’ children can continue to apply for asylum, to attend Americans’ schools or and get jobs.
The same “Unaccompanied Alien Child” process has been used since at least 2010 to deliver more than 230,000 Central American children and youths to sponsoring relatives throughout the United States.
In 2016, the Associated Press reported that at least 80 percent of the children were handed over to sponsors who are illegally in the United States. This agency cooperation with migrants is creating a semi-legal chain-migration pathway for foreign youths into the United States.
“About half of the sponsors are a parent of the child, but the others are mostly close family members — aunts, uncles, that kind of relationship,” Kenneth Wolfe a spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services, told Breitbart News. “It is not a deal-breaker” if the sponsor is in the United States illegally, he said.
Unreal. This is the system that POTUS Trump wants to reform but all Democrats and far too many Republicans refuse to help him.
But to claim that he’s “ripping kids from their parents” is not just stupid and dangerous, it’s not even accurate.
