President chides Dems for blaming his administration for kids in cages

Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, a critic of President Donald Trump and rumored 2020 presidential candidate, on Tuesday fired back at his claim that Democrats are responsible for families being torn apart at the Mexican border by saying that children being separated is what he has in his mind.

Anti-Trump journalists and commentators tweeted their outrage that such a thing was happening under the Trump administration - and then quietly began deleting their tweets when it emerged that the photographs of caged children were taken in 2014 when Barack Obama was president. Dems must agree to Wall and new Border Protection for good of country...

However, former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau, who pulled down his tweet linking the pictures to Trump still took a slam at the current administration with his correction. "F*** your #SundayMorning." For the unversed, a report on Sunday said that the USA government could not account for almost 1,500 immigrant children in 2018.However, the federal government believes that it is not "legally responsible". Yet for that simple act, which has been routine in the past, migrants without documentation will be referred for prosecution and separation of parents from their children under a new "zero tolerance" policy declared by Trump's attorney general, Jeff Sessions, even if they're desperately seeking refugee status.

Later, as more parents started crossing the US border with very young children, the Obama administration responded by establishing large-scale family detention centers in Texas and Pennsylvania. 'The Democrat's solution would be to let everyone go, and that is not something the administration can responsibly do'. "If you call a friend and they don't answer the phone, you don't assume that they've been kidnapped".

But, as The Times acknowledged, that is unrelated to the report on the illegal immigrant children for which the government can not account.

Many criticised the timing of the First Daughter's post.

The reality is more complicated, and the blame can not be placed squarely on Democrats.

Diplomatic duels: what now for the Trump-Kim summit?

'We (in the Obama administration) never thought we would separate the parents and the children, ' Fresco said.

That means children will be separated from parents who are jailed. During those two months a total of about 8,400 unaccompanied minors were caught on the southwest border.

The president implied that children were being separated from their parents at the border because of a law enacted by Democrats. "And we didn't have enough shelter facilities, because we had a huge increase, so kids ended up piling up in Border Patrol lock-ups, which are no places for children". Yet undocumented immigrants were deported at significantly higher rates during the Obama administration.

"Separating parents and children is your administration's choice", the American Civil Liberties Union responded to Trump in a tweet of its own. The law came amid concerns about border control officials and their treatment of children.

WASHINGTON-The White House on Tuesday cited a combination of court rulings and laws as the underpinning for its policy to separate immigrant children from their parents, and looked to shift the responsibility to Democrats in Congress.

For years, as unaccompanied minors arrived in the United States, border patrol or customs officials transferred them to the custody of HHS, which then placed them with a relative or sponsor.

We need to face the complicated issue of immigration with sobriety, a keen understanding of current laws, history, economics, labor flows, supply and demand, demographics and what has actually made America great - its immigrant roots and its welcoming philosophy.
