Democrats and me­dia play dirty on im­mi­gra­tion

Im­mi­gra­tion is such a di­vi­sive is­sue that Cal­i­for­nia Demo­cratic Con­gress­woman Max­ine Wa­ters sug­gested lib­er­als should ha­rass Trump of­fi­cials wher­ever they are un­til they are in­sub­or­di­nate to Trump and refuse to do his bid­ding. She said “tell them they are not wel­come any­where:" like the peo­ple who ha­rassed Home­land Se­cu­rity Sec­re­tary (DHS) Kirst­jen Nielsen at a Mex­i­can restau­rant and at her home last week. One was a jus­tice de­part­ment staff mem­ber who bragged about be­ing a mem­ber of the Demo­cratic So­cial­ists of Amer­ica, re­ports

Sarah San­ders, Trump’s White House Press Sec­re­tary, was asked to leave a Vir­ginia restau­rant by the owner, who then or­ga­nized a group to ha­rass her and her fam­ily. Florida At­tor­ney Gen­eral Pam Bondi was at­tacked by a group while at­tend­ing a movie. Happy now, Max­ine?

All this is hap­pen­ing be­cause the lib­eral me­dia has been ham­mer­ing Trump on sep­a­rat­ing il­le­gal im­mi­grants and their chil­dren at the bor­der. They showed pic­tures of the chil­dren be­hind wired fa­cil­i­ties, ac­cus­ing Trump of in­car­cer­at­ing them when in fact the pho­tos were taken in 2014 when Obama was in of­fice.

They showed a pic­ture of a lit­tle girl cry­ing as she stands be­side an im­mi­gra­tion of­fi­cer. mag­a­zine even used the lit­tle cry­ing girl on its front cover with Trump men­ac­ingly look­ing down at her with the cap­tion “Wel­come to Amer­ica.” Prob­lem is, the two-year old girl was never taken from her mother but was picked up by her mother right af­ter the photo was taken. The cold hard-fact is the mother had taken her from her fa­ther in Honduras, leav­ing her two other chil­dren. Once the fa­ther saw the pho­tos, it was re­ported he was in­censed.

Th­ese heart-wrench­ing pho­tos were seen around the world. Al­most ev­ery world leader, former Pres­i­dent Ge­orge W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush, even the Pope con­demned Trump for cru­elly sep­a­rat­ing chil­dren from their par­ents, never re­al­iz­ing that this prac­tice also hap­pened un­der Obama – to none of the up­roar. While Obama flour­ished un­der his “Catch and Re­lease” pro­gram, his Home­land Se­cu­rity Sec­re­tary Jeh John­son said he de­ported over “a mil­lion” il­le­gal im­mi­grants, com­ment­ing we “can’t have catch and re­lease.”

First Lady Me­la­nia Trump and First Daugh­ter Ivanka re­port­edly got POTUS to al­ter his “Zero Tol­er­ance” im­mi­gra­tion pol­icy and de­tain fam­i­lies to­gether. Then the First Lady vis­ited some of the chil­dren, but the me­dia ex­co­ri­ated her for the words “I RE­ALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” on the back of her de­signer jacket and ac­cused her of be­ing mean and cal­lous to the chil­dren.

A fur­ther ex­am­ple of Trump Derange­ment Syn­drome: on June 20

pub­lished an ar­ti­cle en­ti­tled “Im­mi­grant chil­dren forcibly in­jected with drugs at Texas shel­ter, law­suit claims.” The ar­ti­cle by Re­veal be­gins with “Chil­dren held at the Shiloh Treat­ment Cen­ter, a govern­ment con­trac­tor south of Hous­ton that houses im­mi­grant mi­nors, de­scribed be­ing held down and in­jected, ac­cord­ing to fed­eral court fil­ings.” Later, the au­thors write “Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s “zero tol­er­ance” pol­icy is cre­at­ing a zom­bie army of chil­dren forcibly in­jected with med­i­ca­tions that make them dizzy, list­less, obese and even in­ca­pac­i­tated, ac­cord­ing to le­gal fil­ings…”

Again, this is to make Trump look heart­less. Truth is Shiloh is one of 71 com­pa­nies re­ceiv­ing funds from the fed­eral govern­ment for years to house and supervise im­mi­grant chil­dren deemed un­ac­com­pa­nied mi­nors (UCs) ac­cord­ing to an in­ves­ti­ga­tion by The Texas Tri­bune and Re­veal from The Cen­ter for In­ves­tiga­tive Re­port­ing.

In 2008, a foren­sic psy­chi­a­trist was “an ex­pert wit­ness for a law­suit that stopped the fed­eral govern­ment from forcibly ad­min­is­ter­ing an­tipsy­chotic drugs to de­por­tees.” Even Con­gress­woman Sheila Jack­son Lee, D-Hous­ton called for Shiloh to be shut down in 2014. In 2017 I met a young man who had been su­per­vis­ing over 2, 000 UCs down at Home­stead AF Base. CNN re­ports that as of this week, the De­part­ment of Health and Hu­man Ser­vices has more than 11,600 mi­grant chil­dren, 80 per­cent of whom came by them­selves.

So where were the pas­sion­ate screams when Obama was POTUS? But now Trump is POTUS and the Democrats are cru­ci­fy­ing him for the same things that hap­pened un­der Obama. Blav­ com­pared Trump’s sep­a­rat­ing chil­dren to racists rip­ping chil­dren from slaves, say­ing “Rip­ping Chil­dren Away From Fam­i­lies Is As Amer­i­can As Ap­ple Pie” on Face­book.

To­tally un­fair! It’s all about dis­cred­it­ing Trump. This is noth­ing but The ClowardPiven strat­egy which calls for over­load­ing the U.S. pub­lic wel­fare sys­tem to cre­ate a cri­sis and a na­tional sys­tem of guar­an­teed in­come.

So the or­ga­ni­za­tion Pue­blo Sin Fron­teras has been qui­etly do­ing an an­nual pil­grim­age through Mex­ico for a decade now, ac­cord­ing to The San Diego Union-Tri­bune. In late March, they brought about 2 – 3,000 im­mi­grants from Cen­tral Amer­ica (Honduras, Gu­atemala) in a car­a­van. Trump caught them and in­sti­tuted his “Zero Tol­er­ance” pol­icy.

Pew Re­search Cen­ter es­ti­mates there are over 11.3 mil­lion unau­tho­rized im­mi­grants in the U.S. with over 5.4 mil­lion Mex­i­cans and more than 5.7 mil­lion nonMex­i­cans. The Democrats want th­ese new vot­ers so they can con­trol this coun­try for­ever. First they have to run Trump out of of­fice and they will try by any means nec­es­sary.
