Immigration is such a divisive issue that California Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters suggested liberals should harass Trump officials wherever they are until they are insubordinate to Trump and refuse to do his bidding.
She said “tell them they are not welcome anywhere:” like the people who harassed Homeland Security Secretary (DHS) Kirstjen Nielsen at a Mexican restaurant and at her home last week. One was a justice department staff member who bragged about being a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, reports The Washington Times.
Sarah Sanders, Trump’s White House Press Secretary, was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant by the owner, who then organized a group to harass her and her family. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi was attacked by a group while attending a movie. Happy now, Maxine?
All this is happening because the liberal media has been hammering Trump on separating illegal immigrants and their children at the border. They showed pictures of the children behind wired facilities, accusing Trump of incarcerating them when in fact the photos were taken in 2014 when Obama was in office.
They showed a picture of a little girl crying as she stands beside an immigration officer. Time magazine even used the little crying girl on its front cover with Trump menacingly looking down at her with the caption “Welcome to America.” Problem is, the two-year old girl was never taken from her mother but was picked up by her mother right after the photo was taken. The cold hard-fact is the mother had taken her from her father in Honduras, leaving her two other children. Once the father saw the photos, it was reported he was incensed.
These heart-wrenching photos were seen around the world. Almost every world leader, former President George W.
Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush, even the Pope condemned Trump for cruelly separating children from their parents, never realizing that this practice also happened under Obama – to none of the uproar. While Obama flourished under his “Catch and Release” program, his Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said he deported over “a million” illegal immigrants, commenting we “can’t have catch and release.”
First Lady Melania Trump and First Daughter Ivanka reportedly got POTUS to alter his “Zero Tolerance” immigration policy and detain families together. Then the First Lady visited some of the children, but the media excoriated her for the words “I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” on the back of her designer jacket and accused her of being mean and callous to the children.
A further example of Trump Derangement Syndrome: on June 20 The Texas Tribune published an article entitled “Immigrant children forcibly injected with drugs at Texas shelter, lawsuit claims.”
The article by Reveal begins with “Children held at the Shiloh Treatment Center, a government contractor south of Houston that houses immigrant minors, described being held down and injected, according to federal court filings.” Later, the authors write “President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy is creating a zombie army of children forcibly injected with medications that make them dizzy, listless, obese and even incapacitated, according to legal filings…”
Again, this is to make Trump look heartless. Truth is Shiloh is one of 71 companies receiving funds from the federal government for years to house and supervise immigrant children deemed unaccompanied minors (UCs) according to an investigation by The Texas Tribune and Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting.
In 2008, a forensic psychiatrist was “an expert witness for a lawsuit that stopped the federal government from forcibly administering antipsychotic drugs to deportees.” Even Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Houston called for Shiloh to be shut down in 2014. In 2017 I met a young man who had been supervising over 2, 000 UCs down at Homestead AF Base. CNN reports that as of this week, the Department of Health and Human Services has more than 11,600 migrant children, 80 percent of whom came by themselves.
So where were the passionate screams when Obama was POTUS? But now Trump is POTUS and the Democrats are crucifying him for the same things that happened under Obama. Blavity.com compared Trump’s separating children to racists ripping children from slaves, saying “Ripping Children Away From Families Is As American As Apple Pie” on Facebook.
Totally unfair! It’s all about discrediting Trump. This is nothing but The ClowardPiven strategy which calls for overloading the U.S. public welfare system to create a crisis and a national system of guaranteed income.
So the organization Pueblo Sin Fronteras has been quietly doing an annual pilgrimage through Mexico for a decade now, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune. In late March, they brought about 2 – 3,000 immigrants from Central America (Honduras, Guatemala) in a caravan. Trump caught them and instituted his “Zero Tolerance” policy.
Pew Research Center estimates there are over 11.3 million unauthorized immigrants in the U.S. with over 5.4 million Mexicans and more than 5.7 million nonMexicans. The Democrats want these new voters so they can control this country forever. First they have to run Trump out of office and they will try by any means necessary.
