As the immigration crisis at the border continues unabated with hundreds of thousands of migrants suffering and even dying on the treacherous trek through Mexico to the U.S. border, Democrats are blaming President Donald Trump and gearing up to introduce legislation to increase the number of refugees admitted to 100,000 a year.
This despite evidence that shows some 500,000 migrants —mostly from Central America— will get across the U.S./ Mexico border without being apprehended, including women and children. The United Nations reports that in 2018 the United States took in around 23,000 refugees from all over the world.
A refugee is an immigrant who gains asylum after the court grants him or her that status because they have met the “credible fear” standard of persecution in their home countries.
In an opinion piece in the Washington Post, the commentator blames President Donald Trump, even though Trump has tried multiple avenues to end the illegal immigration crisis at the U.S. border with Mexico, including declaring a national emergency at the border, diverting federal defense funds to secure the border, and crafting comprehensive immigration reform legislation.
Thus far, judges and Democrats have thwarted those efforts.
The Post reported:
“Do we want to make it harder for desperate people to legally secure refuge in the United States, or easier for them to legally do so?
The Democratic answer to this question is: Make it easier for desperate people to migrate, provided it is done in a legal and orderly fashion, in as many ways as good policy allows.”
(Trump has blamed the Democrats not only for their inaction on the current border crisis but also for putting in place incentives — like catch and release and special treatment for migrants with children, even children that aren’t their own — that encourages migrants to come to the United States.)
“Now House Democrats are set to roll out a major new proposal on the asylum crisis that will constitute a big down payment on the longer-term argument Democrats are making,” the Post commentary said.
The bill is called the Northern Triangle and Border Stabilization Act — the majority of migrants in this latest border surge come from that Triangle: El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.
The new bill would, according to the Post, increase services to minor migrants in federal custody, create more ways for Central Americans to get refugee status before coming to the U.S., expand “dramatically” the support for migrant families while their cases are being processed, and increase financial investment in Central America to address the alleged problems migrants are fleeing.
The Post notes that the 100,000 number is “separate and apart from the refugees we take in from elsewhere.”
The Democrats are playing the emotional card, as evidenced on the House floor last week when Rep. Tony Cardenas (D-CA) expressed the idea that all immigrants are “human beings” who deserve the same rights as citizens.
“The United States of America has been the gold standard and that is the argument that we are making today,” Cardenas said. “This is not a game.”
“We are fighting for the lives of human beings who should have the opportunity to be like everyone else on this floor to be allowed the freedom to be who they choose to be, who God made them to be in the greatest place on the planet,” Cardenas said. “And that’s why we are fighting today.”
This push by the Democrats and their Vanguard, the Main Stream Media, to paint the President as a heartless monster is very hypocritical and disingenuous.
The practice of separating immigrant families at the border isn’t new.
The Alien Transfer Exit Program
The United States since 2008 has had a policy called the Alien Transfer Exit Program (ATEP), which detains male Mexican migrants near the border and, instead of repatriating them to their area of origin, leaves them hundreds—and sometimes thousands—of miles away at the opposite end of the U.S.-Mexico border. They are often released from custody at unusual times of day in completely unfamiliar areas where they have no family or other support system. The practice is supposed to deter further border crossing attempts, but instead it subjects migrants to crime and danger.
In 2011, the Alien Transfer Exit Program affected an estimated one-fifth of migrants detained by Border Patrol along the southwest border. That’s because ATEP ramped up under the Obama administration as a way to handle the spike in Mexican migrants attempting to enter the United States.
…“Under the transfer program, many immigrants who are caught in California are flown to Texas border cities, and the flights return west filled with immigrants caught in Texas. In Arizona, immigrant groups are divided, with some deported through Texas and others through California,” the Los Angeles Times reported at the time.
Federal immigration agencies have long claimed that ATEP “breaks the smuggling cycle by physically separating aliens from the smuggling organizations that will repeatedly attempt to bring guide them into this country,” but the program—called “cruel and unusual punishment” by human rights’ advocates—has separated families.
‘Lateral Repatriation’ Is Family Separation
While ATEP targets Mexican men attempting to enter the United States, the program doesn’t just nab men traveling alone. Men migrating with their families are separated from them, detained, and transported to an unfamiliar place in Mexico, while their partners and children are left to languish in detention centers. In 2011, during the height of ATEP, almost none of the reporting about the program focused on family separation.
The Arizona-based organization No More Deaths refers to ATEP as “lateral repatriation,” noting that the program often separates family members and purposely sends them to cities far from one other. Families aren’t notified of where each member ends up, leaving them unaware of where their partners and children are.
In other words, gentle readers, the House Democrats are a bunch of hypocrites who really do not care about these “poor separated children”.
If they actually did, they would have protested ATEP under Obama.
Just like Obama used children as human political props after the Sandy Hook Massacre and Democratic Activists have been using children in school walkouts to try to achieve the taking away of guns from Americans, their “concern” over the welfare of the children of those who wish to illegally enter our Sovereign Nation is nothing but a political ploy.
It is a plan born out of a Democratic desperation to avoid an Electoral Landslide in the 2020 Presidential Election by somehow damaging President Trump.
I mean, they had to do SOMETHING.
Mueller and his investigators produced nothing but a big fat zero in their attempt to prove that the Russians got Trump elected President.
The Dems’ “Stormy” attempt to re-invent a porn actress into a saint fizzled out.
Their recent debates featuring their Presidential Candidate convinced no voters of the “brilliance”of their relabeling of Marxism as “Democratic Socialism”.
So, they decided to prove that they are the “Party That Cares” by trying to “protect the children” through photo ops of them heading down to the border to show how much they “care”, like the image of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez heartbreakingly looking through a fence at those who are detained wen actually there was nothing but a parking lot on the other side of the fence.
Let’s fact it, gentle readers.
The Democrats still want to “radically change” America and to do that they need to import NEW voters.
Those of us already here have already figured out their game.
Heck, if they actually cared about the welfare of children, they wouldn’t advocate for a million of them to be yanked out of their mothers’ wombs every year in America.
Oh, the irony.
God help us.
