Congressman: Youth shelter reflects flawed immigration plan

There are 12 comments on the Brunswick News story from Jun 16, 2018, titled Congressman: Youth shelter reflects flawed immigration plan. In it, Brunswick News reports that:

A Republican congressman from Texas who toured a tent-like shelter for hundreds of minors who entered the country illegally said Saturday the facility is a byproduct of a flawed immigration strategy. U.S. Rep. Will Hurd said the shelter near the Tornillo port of entry in far West Texas will house about 360 boys who are 16 and 17. The teens began arriving Friday, the same day Hurd toured the shelter, he said, noting that they're being moved from other shelters to make way for younger immigrant children taken into custody at the border.

Well if you have a republican from Texas who said that its flawed.

Yes it is flawed because Trump never has a plan

He just does things because he said so on the campaign trail and he wants to be reelected

He then blames the democrats

His people then say its in the bible

Yeah there was no plan, they thought it would be easy

He doesn't think of the consequences

Here are the consequences scarring children for life.

16 and 17 year olds are quite capable of living like Boy Scouts for a while. These people come from places where they don't have flush toilets and sewers run in the open. Making room for trafficked youngsters is anathema to the Democrats actually inviting these illegal activities to increase, mimicking the false rhetoric of actual Communists throughout Mexico and Central America. There is no way to establish if these children are relatives of the adult trafficking them. The complaining Democrats don't seem to care about child sex trafficking and other types of child kidnapping, but only about grabbing emotional headlines. There is undeniable child sex kidnapping and traffic across the Southern border. Leftists and Liberals suddenly displaying their otherwise nonexistent concern for children and families have no magic 8-ball to establish that even one of these children is not in fact being trafficked. Democrats actually have efforted to destroy families and have done a very good job of it. Impeding one Chicano gang member drug dealer from kidnapping, or buying White toddlers to enslave in prostituion is worth all of it.

This is a Trump policy that he created. Nearly 2,000 children were removed from the care of their parents and taken into federal custody between April 19 and May 31, an immigration official said Friday.

This is Trumps Zero Tolorance policy implemented by Sessions. There was no zero tolorance policy under Obama

This is why Sessions is quoting from the bible

This is why Trump and the right wing spin machine is blaming the Democrates

Obama did not have a policy to seperate children from their parents

They had a problem with children showing up at the boarder alone. They were then place in detention until the parent or guardian could be found. In fact the ACLU even filed lawsuites about it.

yet the right wing is trying to spin a different story to avoid talking about what is happening here and now.

Another lie being fabricated when things don't go well

Trump was bragging about the number of arrest at the border.

Now its the Demos fault when it goes south

Just anothe lie and misdirection by the Trump administration.

Just another effort to make America Great again

I would just add that America was already at the top militarily and one of the best economic systems in the world before Trump came along.

You unfeeling bastards have killed 70 Million babies in the womb for convenienc, out of cowardice and to maintain your lusts amongst dead bodies. Now, you want us to believe you care about children, when you can't even establish if they are being trafficked.

If the shelter is in the U.S. I'd say it's flawed.
