Fox News is offering a full-throated defense of Trump putting children in cages, as the kids having it good.
During the first six weeks of the Trump Administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy nearly 2,000 children were separated from their parents at the U.S. border with Mexico.
A spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said on Friday that the separations took place from April 19 to May 31 of this year.
Trump supporters are saying that they were tricked, and they may go out of business because they need the seasonal workers that Trump is deporting or not allowing into the country to survive.
Donald Trump caused this mess by lifting protections for DACA recipients. Paul Ryan is making it worse by not holding a vote to clean it up.
If Congress fails to find a solution, (and that is likely) this means 800,000 people who were brought here as children, will be vulnerable to deportation proceedings and all the charm that ICE brings to the table.
While mass deportation of people based on race or ethnicity may appear to be more “humane” the objective is the same: it’s about destroying the community in whole or in part.
Trump is doing the very thing he accuses opponents of his policies of doing: he is court shopping, or trying to get the case heard in a sympathetic court. Trump's attempt to bypass the lower courts on DACA may further damage the judiciary's independence.
The empty letter comes weeks after the president offended just about everybody with a conscience by referring to nations in Africa as "shithole countries," a view which apparently guides his immigration policy.
A federal judge late on Thursday said President Donald Trump's administration cannot immediately deport 92 Cambodian citizens from the United States without first allowing them a chance to challenge the action in court.
"So let us be clear: any politician who backs up this ransom note is enabling Trump and Miller’s white supremacist agenda."
"The chief executive of the United States, the commander in chief has racist ideas about America and this country, and the American people, all 320 million of us, better figure out what the do about it."
"If you don't have a tough skin, this is not a good business to get into," Durbin said. "I know what happened. I stand behind every word that I said in terms of that meeting."
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) defended Democrats from Trump's claim that Democrats are not acting in good faith on DACA and the Dreamers.
"She should just move to Haiti since she's more concerned about Haitian immigrants than black Americans here in poverty, in America."
There is not a holy book on the face of the planet – certainly not the Bible – that can justify Trump's words or deeds.
During the campaign, Trump said he would be the "champion" of Haitian Americans. Now that he's actually in the Oval Office, he is plotting ways to remove these same people from the country.
"I'm absolutely -- stand beside Donald Trump, his policies. I think he's moved this country in an incredibly positive direction."
In other words, it doesn't matter how despicable Trump's rhetoric is. If his base applauds with approval, then all is well in Trumpland.
Not only did Trump's immigration stunt fail to change the subject from Michael Wolff's book, but he has alienated at least one of his most passionate supporters in the process.
In the wake of the terrorist attack in New York City that left eight people dead, Donald Trump refuses to stop playing politics.
