Scaramucci, Dershowitz, O'Reilly and Cruz Split With President on Separating Children Immigrants From Parents

 The government should know how bad this looks and how innocent children are actually suffering. That kind of scenario is unacceptable to most Americans...
It is  debatable whether this general border policy is entirely the fault of this administration, or goes back to earlier administrations.  But that too, misses the point.  Right now, this administration is allowing young children to be taken away from their arrested parents.  The more important point is that President Trump, with one phone call or one signature, can stop the separation of children and parents right now – today.

Supporters of the policy claim that the president does not have this power.  They are wrong.  The president is the chief executive officer of the U.S. with the constitutional authority to see that the laws are properly executed.  As President Harry Truman once put it: “The buck stops here.”

And so, Mr. President, I urge you to do the right thing: to order that no child will be taken from a parent for even one moment.  Devise better methods of dealing with the problem.  But right now, end the policy that separates children from parents. You can do it.  You should do it.  You must do it.  Don’t’ let nay sayers try to persuade you that you lack the authority to do it.  As the ad says: Just do it.

Mr. President, I have defended your civil liberties and will continue to do so, because I believe in civil liberties for all people.  Civil liberties does not end at the entrance of the Oval Office, nor does it end at the entrance to America, at its borders.  Basic decency requires that we recognize the traumatic impact separation can have on innocent children.  Please end that policy now.

BREAKING Ted Cruz Introducing Emergency Legislation to Keep Illegal Immigrant Families Together



  1. •Parents shouldn't drag their children.
    •The families, by international law, should have stayed in Mexico when they arrived ("first country of asylum"); that they continued shows it is not about escaping danger, but getting to America.
    •Many of the "kids" are NOT the children of those they travel with; it is fraud, and many of the children are abused (beyond being used as props).
    •American citizens do not get this treatment; if you break the law they separate you from your children, at least during the initial process, and definitely if you're jailed.
    •The camps they would set up for "families" would mean children sleeping/housed with many adult strangers. This is a recipe for abuse.
    •It is the parents fault for bringing the kids. Responsible adults over the centuries travel first and make a safe home for their family before they bring them.
    •This will create moral hazard, reducing the cost of breaking the law and trying to bullshit your way onto American welfare, and creating more parasitic voters raised on welfare.
    •There is a huge burden on the school system (yes, get rid of public schools; but until then, live in the real world). Completely uneducated and hungry children do not succeed; they fall behind and end up on the dole. Ask ESOL teachers.

    Dersh: "order that no child will be taken from a parent for even one moment." The way to do this, and maintain the rule of law, is to prevent entry. Order that no person, young or old, will be allowed illegal entry. Change the asylum laws. Mandate that any immigrant must have a job waiting, and be insured and bonded by their sponsor.

    Or do Ass-Backwards PPS'ism and say that until we have full private property in all things we can't advocate for State action to reduce the State's overall burden on us (in this case, using the State apparatus to limit new welfare recipients).

  2. The establishment unites on behalf of the status quo. How heroic and brave.
