On Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions appeared on Fox News and commented on the “crisis” at the border and refuted the Democrat’s narrative that immigrants seeking Asylum were being detained and separated from their children. The truth which the media is refusing to report is that those illegally trying to cross the border are those that are being detained and separated.
The Trump administration once again is being forced to do what past Presidents and administrations failed to do and they are being unjustly criticised for it.
The Democrats always find a way to make enforcing the law appear unjust and inhuman. It is one of their specialties.

Specifically, explaining to House Republicans what he wants to do about immigration and border security.
House Republican leaders sidestepped an insurrection last week. The GOP brass forestalled a potential takeover of the House floor by a coalition of 20-plus Republicans and all 193 House Democrats. The special parliamentary gambit would have forced the House to debate a series of immigration bills later this month. But House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and his team skirted the calamity by engineering a revamped border security and immigration package. It’s aimed at courting the support of moderate GOPers and many conservative Republicans.
On Thursday, the Republican leadership released details and text of the "Border Security and Immigration Reform Act." The plan allots $25 billion to construct Trump’s border wall, ends the so-called "catch and release" program and allows the DACA population to apply for what’s termed as "six-year indefinitely renewable contingent non-immigrant status." Republicans planned to pair a debate and vote on the new leadership measure with separate consideration of a more conservative plan authored by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., this Thursday. GOP leaders planned to measure support for the bill Friday morning.
But Trump spoke about the immigration plan on "Fox & Friends" Friday morning. Everything then spilled off the rails.
"I'm looking at both of them. I certainly won't sign the more moderate one. I need a bill that gives this country tremendous border security. I have to have that," said the president. "We have to have the wall. If we don't have the wall. There's no bill."
Trump's remarks confounded everyone following the immigration debate. "Both of them?" That sounded like the Republican leadership compromise bill and the Goodlatte bill. "Won’t sign the more moderate one?" Well, the President seemed to refer to the new leadership bill. That measure wasn't as "conservative" as the Goodlatte bill. After all, it was indeed more "moderate," because, well, it was designed to court the votes of moderate Republicans.
Never mind that the leadership orchestrated the legislation alongside White House staff, aligning the plan with Trump’s demands on immigration.
The whole exercise reminded everyone of a late March fire drill where Trump threatened to veto a $1.3 trillion omnibus spending package to fund the government. The president himself pushed for a major increase in defense spending in the legislation. His staff cut a deal alongside congressional Republican and Democratic leaders. Then, just hours after Congress okayed the pact, Mr. Trump threatened a veto before reluctantly signing the plan.
