    Branford College residence, Yale University Earlier this week, I addressed the national hissy fit over separating children from adults who claim to be their parents at U.S. borders. I noted what happened before the U.S. started doing that. Under Obama, we unwittingly handed thousands of children to slave labor operators or sex traffickers. Because they claimed to be their parents. Even Obama felt constrained to stop doing that. He put in place the policy which Trump is now enforcing. Bush-era laws and crackpot court decisions won’t let the government hold children with their parents while we evaluate their asylum...

    American Airlines asked the federal government on Wednesday to stop using its commercial planes for “transporting children who have been separated from their families due to the current immigration policy.” The announcement, which was posted on American’s website, is the latest fallout from the Trump administration’s decision to separate parents who have arrived at the southern border illegally from their children. Several flight attendants for American, the world’s largest airline, have posted testimony on public and private social media channels in recent days, describing how they have seen groups of unaccompanied Latino children on domestic flights, accompanied not by parents...
  • More than 100 arrested in Ohio large-scale immigration raid

    More than 100 workers were arrested Tuesday at an Ohio meatpacking plant by federal agents following a yearlong immigration investigation, the second large-scale raid within the state in the past two weeks. The investigation focused on whether the company knowingly hired people who are in the country illegally, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said. The agency said it also was looking into whether many of the workers were using fraudulent identification belonging to U.S. citizens. The arrests come as the U.S. government steps up its focus on businesses that hire people in the country illegally as part of a broad...

    Yesterday on Face the Nation, I responded to questions about the migrant separations from their children under the Trump Administration’s policy announced last month by trying to shift the focus to what drives these migrations in the first place – something that can’t be addressed by a simple band-aid piece of legislation paving the way for more lax border requirements.

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said Tuesday that Democrats would reject legislation to address the crisis at the U.S-Mexico border, where children have been separated from adults after crossing illegally. “There are so many obstacles to legislation and when the president can do it with his own pen, it makes no sense,” Schumer said, as quoted by The Hill. “Legislation is not the way to go here when it’s so easy for the president to sign it.” The Hill‘s Alexander Bolton observed: “Schumer said [Democrats] want to keep the focus on Trump.”

    Chelsea Handler believes the United States is at risk of turning into Nazi Germany. The liberal comedian took to Twitter to slam President Trump's decision to increase the prosecutions of illegal immigrants under a "zero-tolerance" policy that critics say can lead to parent-child separations. "Can someone please DM who knows of an organized movement to revolt against this latest trump abomination at the border? We need to stop everything and march until this Trump policy ends," Handler tweeted Monday. "We are going to end up like Germany in WWII. We have to all stand up and do something."(continued)

    The Daily Caller ^ | 06/19/2018 | Benny Johnson
    The media and political class become more and more outraged over the Trump administration’s decision to detain and prosecute immigrants illegally crossing the border. Lost in the debate is any acknowledgment that President Obama’s administration also used detention facilities. Current U.S. immigration laws, when enforced, have the consequence of temporarily separating adults who arrive with children into separate detention facilities in order to prosecute the adults. The policy of prosecuting immigrants for crossing the border illegally has been in place for multiple administrations. The Obama administration prosecuted half a million illegal immigrants and similarly separated families in the process. So...

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow broke down in tears on-air over a report about the Trump administration operating “tender age” shelters for migrant babies and toddlers. Maddow choked up while reading the first lines of the Associated Press report on the three facilities where children under the age of 13 are being sent after being separated from their parents at the border. She was unable to read the description of the shelters, first asking a producer to display a graphic and then deciding to abruptly end her segment. “I think I’m going to have to hand this off, sorry,” the MSNBC host...

    Subtitle:Legislation stresses importance of maintaining prosecution of first-time illegal border crossers Posted on Mar 19 2015 WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Sens. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.), today introduced S. Res. 104, legislation expressing the sense of the Senate regarding Operation Streamline, a program that has seen success in reducing recidivism among illegal border crossers. The resolution, which is co-sponsored by U.S. Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), also calls on the Obama administration to immediately remove any directives or policies that would bar the prosecutions of first-time border crossers under this program. Operation Streamline is a...

    “If they take my son from me, I would die,” one woman, who was seeking asylum when she was turned away from the border, told BuzzFeed News. REYNOSA, Mexico — Families waiting inside Mexico to cross into the US are increasingly nervous as reports of the child separations enforced under the Trump administration's "zero tolerance policy" sow fear and anger on the other side of the border. Most of the families affected by Trump’s policy are, like them, from Central America, where gangs frequently extort small businesses, forcibly recruit pre-teen kids, and burn houses down as a form of punishment...

    The Obama administration announced a program late last week that would provide attorneys for the young illegal immigrant children crossing in waves over the U.S.-Mexico border, saying they want to make sure the unaccompanied minors are getting fair legal representation. The joint project between the Justice Department and AmeriCorps, the government’s national service organization, aims to recruit 100 lawyers and paralegals to shepherd the children through the immigration system, making sure they are treated properly and can make claims for legal status or protection if they are eligible. “We’re taking a historic step to strengthen our justice system and protect...

    Back in the Sixties, Marxists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven came up with a great strategy for overloading and collapsing democratic welfare states, paving the way for socialist tyranny. Basically, the idea was to hit the system with a tidal wave of demands it couldn’t refuse, and couldn’t possibly fulfill. The Left would then insist that the moral argument for the system remained intact, so the only way to meet those impossible demands was to scrap every vestige of Constitutional restraint and republican self-government, instituting a totalitarian system that in theory would forcibly restructure society to promote “fairness” and...

    Guatemalan President, Jimmy Morales took to social media today to share his views on the immigration policy of U.S. President, Donald Trump’s administration. Morales stated “when a policy, however necessary it pretends to appear, ends with the separation of the family and the pain of so many human beings, especially children, it should not only be revised, it should be corrected as soon as possible.” “The nobility and greatness of a nation are at stake,” he added. The policy has sparked international concern because its enforcement causes the separation of entire families at the United States border. The United Nations...

    Senate Democrats indicated Tuesday they may not agree to narrow legislation that would end the separation of children from parents who cross into the country illegally at the southern border. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., refused to say if he and other Democrats would support a bill that Republicans are working on, and when pressed, said several times that President Trump should act on his own to stop these family separations from happening. "Let's hope we never get to that. Let's hope the president does the right thing and solves the problem, which he can do," Schumer said. "That's...

    """Democrats’ Border Separation Bill Would Let Nearly All Parents Who Commit Federal Crimes Get Off Scot-Free"""" Democrats’ proposed legislation to prohibit so-called border separations would actually prevent federal law enforcement agencies almost anywhere inside the United States from arresting and detaining criminals who are parents having nothing to do with unlawfully crossing the border and seeking asylum. Every Senate Democrat has now signed on to cosponsor a bill written so carelessly that it does not distinguish between migrant children at the border and U.S. citizen children already within the United States. The bill further does not distinguish between federal officers...

    There is a great amount of bleeding heartism going on right now regarding the border policy of separating children from their families. Even Laura Bush has joined the chorus. In an unusual break from her political retirement, former first lady Laura Bush condemned the Trump administration’s practice of separating parents and children while their parents are prosecuted for illegally entering the country. “I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart,” she wrote in a Washington Post article published on...

    The Trump administration has likely lost track of nearly 6,000 unaccompanied migrant children, thousands more than lawmakers were alerted to last month, according to a McClatchy review of federal data... “There is a lot more,” said a field specialist who worked in the Office of Refugee Resettlement until earlier this year and was tasked with reaching out to sponsors and children to check on their well-being. “You can bet that the numbers are higher. It doesn’t really give you a real picture.” The new estimate comes as backlash widens over President Donald Trump's' decision to separate parents and children. Advocates...
