A New Low For Trump / Separating Immigrant Children From Parents

Immigrant Children Separated From Their Parents and Caged Up In Detention Centers

I don’t often write about our elected president, not because I agree with anything he has done or tried to do, but, because I don’t have enough time to write about all the stupid and diabolical things he has done. But, I feel I need to express my feelings about his latest actions in regard to separating illegal immigrant children from their parents, for no reason other than crossing into the US illegally for a better life.

On April 6, 2018, Trump’s attorney general, Jeff Sessions sent out a zero tolerance order for people crossing the US/Mexico border illegally. This order includes separating children from their parents at the border, the parents are sent for criminal prosecution while the children, who cannot be held criminally responsible are taken, distraught, screaming and crying to separate holding locations around the US.

Let’s be clear, anyone that believes causing children, immigrant or otherwise unnecessary emotional distress, which often has long-lasting effects is acceptable has a cold black heart. And, those in the Trump administration that consistently lie to defend the administration’s policies, Jeff Sessions, Sarah Sanders, and Kirstjen Nielsen, well, as Madeline Albright said “there’s a special place in hell” for these people.

Now, this is where it gets really dark, Trump, all but admitted, that this ‘zero tolerance’ policy was a way to force Democrats in Congress to vote in favor of giving Trump $25 billion for his border wall, which, of course, was one of his campaign promises, albeit without Mexico footing the bill as Trump promised over and over again on the campaign trail. Trump is literally holding these children hostage, blaming the whole situation on a non-existent Democratic ‘loopholes’, which Trump’s base laps up enthusiastically.

Obviously, there has been a massive backlash, the majority of Americans can’t watch and listen to children crying as they are being ripped away from their parents and accept it, which forced Trump to sign an executive order, which allows children to stay with their parents, but this does not affect the over 2,300 children that have already been separated, probably because of the reasons in the paragraph below.

Some reports have suggested that some immigrant parents have already been deported without their children. It has also been reported by some that there is no solid plan for reuniting families when the parents are inevitably deported, which does not surprise me in the slightest, Donald J Trump and his cronies have no clue, they literally could not successfully organize a piss-up in a brewery. a

We should also note that the administration has tried to justify the separation of children by claiming that a lot of illegal immigrants are trafficking children, and that the adults are not the true parents of the removed children. Something that the administration has provided no real evidence of being true.

Bottom line here is that the powers that be in the United States of America are using blackmail to get their way, basically holding children hostage, in this immigration crisis and while the GOP were pushing their spending bill and tax ‘reform’, holding CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program) and Dreamers hostage. It’s disgraceful that our leaders are using hostage-taking tactics to pass their self-serving bills.

Then, to add insult to injury, Trump’s wife, Melania, decided it would be a good idea to wear a jacket with the words “I really don’t care, do u?” emblazoned on the back as she boarded a plane on her way to a compassionate visit to one of the centers where immigrant children are being held. Melania’s spokesperson said “it’s a jacket, there was no hidden message”, only to be contradicted by her husband, the idiot and chief, saying it was an attack on the fake news media, which, came in the form of a tweet.

To conclude, we live in a time where our politicians are a law unto themselves, there is zero accountability, at least if you play for team red. This is why it’s massively important that we flip the house and senate blue in November, so we can put a stop to the open corruption before it is too late, There are self-serving assholes on the Democrat side too, but it’s far worse on the Republican side of Congress.
