Fact checkers can spin this administration’s ‘zero-tolerance’ enforcement decision of the immigration laws so it makes Republicans the bad guys, but it doesn’t change facts.
Entering the USA illegally is a crime; a misdemeanor the first time, a felony after that.
And, guess what…committing a crime, while children are in your custody is defined by law as child endangerment – especially when 80% of those kids aren’t with parents.
If you jay-walk a high-traffic intersection with your 6-month old son in your arms, not only did you commit a misdemeanor…you endangered your child. If you rob a bank with that 6-month old in your arms, you committed a felony while endangering him.
In either case, while you’re in custody and being processed as an adult through the legal system (which involves, at some point, confinement in an adult-populated holding area), of course the child must be adequately cared for in a non-endangered manner.
How is what’s happening at the southern border any different?
ESPECIALLY WHEN 80% OF THE KIDS ARE NOT WITH THEIR PARENTS?
There are procedures in place for immigrating to America. Those who violate the system – with or without kids in tow – deserve no special treatment. They broke the law.
And don’t blame those enforcing the law.
Use common sense…don’t let these Left-wing emotion-whores cloud your judgment.
Final word – whether by law or by executive action…
…Obama and his Democrat cohort encouraged this border behavior for 8 years, thus CREATING yet another crisis they now politically exploit…the blame falls on them.
The height of political hypocrisy is to make law, then vilify those who enforce it.
