The Left’s new mantra is to demonize President Trump for separating families at the border while ignoring the law, and the fact that this practice has been ongoing since Clinton in 1997, then Bush, then their regal standard-bearer, Obama! They ignore that 10,000 of the 12,000 separated minors came across the border ILLEGALLY WITHOUT THEIR PARENTS! They ignore the fact that in the past week when they were “so” outraged at the family separations, 17, 811 babies were ripped from their mother’s womb and killed! Abortion is the Ultimate Family Separation Tragedy!
Make no mistake, this faux outrage by the left has nothing to do with protecting children. It is a political strategy to justify OPEN BORDERS in the 2018 Mid-Term and the 2020 Presidential elections. The Left is seeing that President has succeeded in convincing the American People that his immigration policies of building a wall, eliminating the Visa Lottery, Chain Migration, and tightening the border security and enforcement is the only sensible path to border security and homeland safety.
President Trump Will NOT Back Down!
What the Left is finally understanding is that this President will not stand idly by and allow them to dominate the narrative! What the Left is finally understanding is that this President sees Border Security and the Protection of the Homeland as a principle, and not some sound bite! What the Left is finally understanding is that this President sees the elimination of Open Borders as a principled means to ensure prosperity for American citizens and especially critical to uplifting economically disadvantaged minorities.
ICE, the Phony Straw Man:
As a side note, the Left is clamoring for the elimination of ICE, Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE does not detain and separate illegals crossing the border. This is done by the Border Patrol (CBP, Customs and Border Protection) who then MUST turn over unaccompanied minors or minors whose parents are being prosecuted to the Health and Human Services agency! Never try to confuse a liberal with FACTS! Even Fox News has not recognized this factual error in the Left mantra to “Eliminate Ice”.
ICE is responsible for deporting criminal illegal aliens, prosecuting smugglers and human traffickers and interdicting terrorists threats at the border. In 2017, the ICE ERO division (Enforcement, Removal Operations), arrested over 143,000 people and convicted over 92% of those arrested. In 2016, the ICE HSI unit in charge of investigating and prosecuting human trafficking, initiated 1,029 investigations with a link to human trafficking and recorded 1,952 arrests, 1,176 indictments, and 631 convictions; 435 victims were identified and assisted. ICE also is responsible for border counter terrorism and the illegal movement of goods, drugs and currency. So, who does the Left see as the heir apparent to this very effective agency? NO one! They merely use ICE erroneously, probably because their wacky membership can remember the word ICE, in order to gin up support for Open Borders!
Losing Battle for the Left
The Left’s protests on this issue will fizzle as did the women’s march and other similar contrived “outrages” ginned up by the Left. The real issue is that Donald J. Trump is living up to his promises and literally wiping out decades of Left Wing Socialist re-engineering of the United States of America and its foundation, the US Constitution. This President has annihilated Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of this nation, PERIOD!
But, be prepared, when this issue backfires on the Left, and it is already starting, they will slither onto another OUTRAGE. But, this President, will continue to OUTWORK them and their media lackeys and ultimately triumph over their destruction of our Constitutional Republic…
