Hey Schumer! Remember when you caused a government shut down because you wanted to protect DACA? Remember that President Trump handed you a bill granting amnesty to 1.8 million DACA recipients and you rejected it because you didn’t want to fund the border wall?
So please spare me your fake outrage 6 months later regarding families being separated at the border!
Right after the government shut down, Democrats, the media, and the never Trump Republicans went completely silent regarding DACA. We have not heard a peep out of them! What happened to them and why all of a sudden no one is shedding tears for their horrible fate of being illegal thanks to their parents lack of judgment, the same lack of judgment that is responsible for the new fake outrage at the border regarding families being separated?
Anyone still buying into the 24 hour news cycles with dramatic coverage of ordinary daily government business either has an extremely short memory, or lack the ability of independent thinking.
It’s all about politics and keeping people angry and divided, period.
If Democrats cared about DACA they would have taken the amnesty for 1.8 million recipients and allowed a border wall to be built so we are not in the same situation again in 10 years. If Republicans cared about building a wall and improving security at the border they would come together instead of fighting among themselves and pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill.
But here’s the ugly truth…
The drug cartels have a 29 billion dollars a year business in the US thanks to a porous border, and this business is just going to grow as more and more people become addicted to meth and heroin. If big pharma has lobbyists, don’t you think the cartels do too? Look at skid row in California, all those people living on the streets in tents are drug addicts, and they are there because we have an unstoppable flow of drugs into this country.
Another border issue is sex traffickers. As many as 80% of the minors coming into the US are either teenagers coming alone or smaller kids being brought in by a kidnapper to be sold to pedophile and prostitution rings. Teenage girls as young as 13 are brought in to “service” migrant camps, where the pimps will charge $35 for every 15 min spent with the girl and force them to be with 50-60 men a day. And the male teenagers are often gang members coming in as mules for the drug cartels.
If you take the time to research, then you understand why the separation is actually needed! What do you know? Bill Clinton actually signed a law that was meant to protect these children and now his own party think it’s cruel just because Trump is using it to solve a problem that has put thousands of minors in danger.
Also, keep in mind that these people are coming in without any documentation whatsoever, how do you know that this particular 3 year old belongs to the woman holding him? Authorities have to do a lot of work to find out if this relationship is legitimate, or if there is a mother back in Guatemala whose child was kidnapped to be sold in the US to a pedophile.
Something else that reporters and politicians conveniently forget to mention, are the billions of dollars spent by the U.S. government every year in financial aid to countries like Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras, with the sole purpose of helping those governments with health, education and security, so their citizens have a better life. Why are we giving them all this money and then taking their citizens in, along with all the drug trafficking? This is your money, your tax dollars, completely mishandled.
Last, but not least, let’s not forget that there are 10 American Consulates spread all over Mexico and these migrants claiming asylum could have stopped at any of the Consulates at the southern part of Mexico, and apply for asylum before taking the long and dangerous trip to cross the border illegally. So why didn’t they? Could it be that they knew they would be screened there and most likely not be able to enter the US with a child that didn’t belong to them?
In order to maintain independent thinking, one must learn to question everything or you are doomed to become a tool in the hands of politicians who have mastered the art of pulling on your heart strings to guarantee another 4 years in office.
At the end, the best thing our government can do is to build a wall and protect the border so these disgusting people who make a living from drug trafficking, or selling children for sex, will no longer have a market to profit from.
But next week Democrats, the media and the rhinos will be outraged by something else, there will be another “big story” to keep you fighting with each other and the voting population will be divided so no one notices the corruption happening behind closed doors… and they will forget about the children the same way they forgot about DACA. And unfortunately, so will you.
