White House faces growing outcry over migrant family policies
The Hill ^ | 06/17/18 | Brett Samuels

The White House appears poised for a fight over its policy of separating migrant families who cross the border illegally, even as a growing number of lawmakers are voicing concerns about the practice.

Democrats and some Republicans have in recent days visited facilities used to house separated family members, leading to new questions about the process and growing calls for the so-called "zero tolerance" policy to end.

GOP Sens. Jeff Flake (Ariz.) and Susan Collins (Maine) wrote to the Departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services on Saturday asking for clarity on the administration's practice of separating migrant families.

The letter cites multiple instances where families seeking asylum were separated, despite the administration's assurances that wasn't the case. The senators asked for details on when children are separated from their parents, what the purpose of doing so is, and how many children have been separated during the asylum claim process.

"It is critical that Congress fully understands how our nation’s laws are being implemented on the ground, especially when the well-being of young children is at stake," the senators wrote.

It looks like Democrats believe they have their midterm issue.>>>>>>>

If they get themselves worked up enough perhaps they will have to put their money where their mouths are.

PDJT is enforcing immigration law passed by the Democrats. Obama himself separated children from their families and then launched DACA.The democrats actually advetized DACA to maximize an exodus of young people from South America and Mexico.

Now the Dems are caterwauling about the enforcement of immigration laws they themselves passed. Maybe the idiots and the “progressive” Republicans can get together they reach critical mass and actually support the Republican initiative to reform immigration law as a package.

But the fact is that the Dems and Progressive Republican RINOs would sooner make a lot of noise than accomplish anything substantive involving “ Let’s make a deal.”

“Deport the whole family. That way they are kept together.”

To do that, the current RAT-written law allowing a “hearing for asylum” needs to go. 99% of the time an “asylum claim” is a ruse designed to allow the illegals to simply “disappear” into our country. All this “bringing them out of the shadows” should mean we round them up and mass deport them.

No, there isn’t any “growing outcry,” there is just bleating from desperate Democrats still searching (in mid June) for a single issue let alone a winning issue. Go away The Hill and try again.

No compromise, send them all home. Americans first, illegals a distant second.

Any parent that brings their children with them trying cross the border illegally should be separated from their children like every American citizen accused of child engagement. Their children should only be returned when they voluntarily self deport and agree to never return.

President Trump needs to stand resolute. His base is not buying this bullshit.

And the Dems, with they waaaay over the top Nazi imagery on this issue are overplaying their hand.

Democrats, like terrorists, frequently hide behind children.

The child is separated because of the actions of whatever adult entered this country with said child ILLEGALLY!! Completely the fault of the parent/guardian/trafficker/adult.

Don’t bring the kid then use the kid to tug on heartstrings. My heartstrings have been tugged on waaaay too much. Now I feel zip zero nada for these invaders.

I’d love to see the illegals -and their kids just not let in until we are ready to process them. Take a number Jose and we’ll call you. In the meantime, feed yourself and your kids on the Mexican side of the border.

The appearance of it is enough of an elections problem to change the policy.

Build the Wall. Use discretionary funds from the DHS budget, whatever - start building. We’re heading toward the halfway point of Trump’s first term and we’re still letting the Democrats play their sob-story games about “migrants”.

Yup. THIS is the thing that will finally bring Trump down. /sarc

And when it fails the scum will probably recycle some other fake stuff. I’m guessing they’ll take another run at the mental health canard. (In fact some already have.)

‘Coincidentally’ timed to make sure every liberal votes in November. It is their only chance to get any votes. They have no substance, nobody who can run on their ticket, no ticket beyond Socialism - good for the ‘gimmes’ but not regular voters; and no members beyond those who cannot legally vote.

This is not a winning issue. It is the flavor of the week, Russians, Melania, Mueller, Stormy, Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Obama, the new bright and shining Democrat Party Leader, Manafort, McCabe, tax reform, immigration and on and and on.

This current Democrat Party farce will last to the end of next week and will end with the Democrats boxed in the corner by Trumps move to pass legislation to correct this problem. They will refuse any action and will carry this on as a campaign theme with no legs. Trump wins...Dems lose again, and, again, and, again, etc.

But....what really gets me laughing is the clarion call out to Obama to come out from hiding, behind his wall that surrounds his Washington, DC home, and be the leader the Democrats are looking for to lead them to victory in the Mid-Term elections. “Dream, dream, dream...all you gotta do is dream, dream, dream”...forget it Dems...Obama is toast...no, Obama is burnt toast.

one, They only become asylum seekers when they get caught here illegally. Two if they want asylum don’t walk /ride/fly/take a camel here from your country, go to the US embassy and ask for asylum. This is all BS concocted by the dema and the media. Oh and it was started by the magic mulatto did they not investigate for 8 years? not very good reporters are they?
