In May, an image of immigrant children placed in holding cells went viral and was shared heavily, not only by a former Obama administration official but also by leftist activists – who used it as an opportunity to blast Trump for the heartless nature of his immigration policies. The only problem, the infamous image was from 2014 – under Obama.
Once again, we find liberals criticizing policies supposedly enacted by Trump, all whilst ignoring that these practices have been ongoing for almost the entire duration of Obama administration.
The mainstream media and Democrats have denounced families being ripped apart at the border under the Trump administration, with the children of illegals being placed in detention centers and their parents put in jail for trying to enter the country illegally. Former CIA Director Michael Hayden even went so far as to compare this practice to concentration camps in Nazi Germany. Somehow, we doubt that his illegal spying has uncovered millions of illegal immigrants being murdered in their detention centers by ICE officials.
However, even ignoring Hayden’s hyperbole, the outrage and furor concerning these families torn asunder is completely ignorant of any context. No one decided to care or go against this same practice when it was happening under the Obama administration – unlike Trump, the mainstream media all but ignored the story while Obama was president. Even Hillary Clinton was right on cue with her lambasting of Trump’s “devastating” policy, saying:
What part of illegal does Nancy not understand?
The media and the democrats are extremely upset at the Trump’s Administration method of “separating” families. But the fact of the matter is, the Trump Administration is just enforcing the law. Plus, when people break the law, they are often separated from their families. Illegal immigrants knew their risk when they decided to bring their families with them across the border.
President Trump this morning blamed the democrats for the mess at the border.
“The Democrats are forcing the breakup of families at the Border with their horrible and cruel legislative agenda. Any Immigration Bill MUST HAVE full funding for the Wall, end Catch & Release, Visa Lottery and Chain, and go to Merit Based Immigration. Go for it! WIN!” Trump tweeted.
If families do not want to be separated, they have to come to the U.S. legally.
