Border separations ripple through midterm campaigns

There are 101 comments on the CBS News story from Jun 19, 2018, titled Border separations ripple through midterm campaigns. In it, CBS News reports that:

Wrenching scenes of migrant children being separated from their parents at the southern border are roiling campaigns ahead of midterm elections, emboldening Democrats on the often-fraught issue of immigration while forcing an increasing number of Republicans to break from President Donald Trump on a matter that animates the GOP's most ardent supporters. Kim Schrier, a Democrat running for a House seat outside of Seattle, said Trump is pushing an "absolutely unethical, inhumane" policy.

Democrats using this issue politically will rue the day they tried to force these children back into deprivation, hunger and ignorance. Long treks from Central America for little children into the culture shock of flush toilets and showers by undocumented "parents" is debilitating. Now, Democrats want to force these youngsters into homelessness and living in vermin infested housing with seven other illegal immigrant families. Democrats and even First Ladies have no solutions other than returning the children to deprivation and malnutrition. Parents forcing their children into malnutrition and filth, using them as human shields to gain special treatment on arriving... are of very questionable character.

Why do you care? I can reassure you that Democrats will lose the midterms.

As the 2016 election showed everyone that Trump’s piss and vinegar rallies, Tweets and policies are the new normal.

The GOP pushback is just for show. They will ultimately let “Trump Be Trump.”

These practices of separating illegal children from illegal adults started under Bill Clinton, and was used under both Bush's, and Barack Obama so this whole mess is bull. It is to divert our attention from the good things President Trump has accomplished for Americans. It is 20 weeks from the election, and Democrats have nothing else to offer. Wouldn't it be nice if Democrats were as concerned for the American children killed in the crossfire in all our major Democrat cities?

who doesn't? if you look around the world, most of the worlds problems are caused by dark skinned people....America has its blacks, 13% of the population, but 75% of the violent crime, the middle east has its muslims, nuff said, they are in the midst of trying to take over the world, and mexico has its Mexicans, trying to turn the US into the 3rd world they are comfortable with. If not for Europeans, Honkies and Asians, the world would be in chaos

There is no federal law mandating children and parents be separated at the border; a policy resulting in that outcome was enacted in May 2018.

So replace everything about previous presidents and just replace with Trump

It is the Flores Consent Decree law of 1997. Look it up. It was used by every President since 1997, Clinton, both Bushes, and the first black President. They wanted it kept quiet. President Trump has a transparent Oval office. So he gets yelled at for following the law. It is all the Democrats have going for themselves into the mid terms, but it won't work any better then embracing MS13.

BOTTOM LINE:

If you don't want to be separated from your f**king kids, don't violate our laws and cross the border ILLEGALLY.

Do it the RIGHT/LEGAL way and you'll still be with your "kids".

PERIOD.

No this is a product of you listining to FOX and believing eveything they say

FCDL of 1997 is a class-action lawsuit that was initially brought against the Reagan administration, as Flores v. Meese, and settled under the Clinton administration in 1997, as Flores v. Reno.

The Flores settlement required immigration officials to “place each detained minor in the least restrictive setting appropriate”— for example, providing food, water and toilets. The government also agreed to release immigrant children “WITHOUT UNNECESSAY DELAY” under an established preference ranking for custody.

They have to release children swiftly

Enter Trum and Sessions stage righ
Sessions announced a “zero tolerance” policy in April, stating that “our goal is to prosecute every case that is brought to us”— thus leading to the detention of migrant parents.

This policy seperates children from the parents? of course you may see it differntly as these kids are criminals

Under Flores decree Trump has 3 choices

releasing families together
passing a law that would allow for family detention
break up the families.

He choice break up the families which was his decision

So maybe his logic is is break up the families and SPEEDILY put them back together

Or maybe he just wanted show his supportes how tough he is

Melanie wishes that her husband would governern with heart."

Trump and FOX doesn't have a heart

They see that these children and their families are criminals, so lets treat them as such.

And when the illegal adults plead guilty, (because they are)they are sentenced to time served, days, sometimes hours, reunited, and sent home to their country of origin. You make it sound like they are separated forever. Here's a clue, enter the country legally, and you have your children every step of the way. I have no sympathy for criminals, and neither do other Americans.

The US is not going to put them in jail as who is going to pay for it.

They will be sent home

and the family may get back together

and live happily ever after

I do not see them as criminals, I see them looking for a better life

If it infringes upon your tea party then so be it.

He is again, missing an opportunity to deal with immigration with a heart and do a better job than the previous administrations.

Instead he dug deep and decided to be a bigger, bolder monster.

So you are saying pumkinhead hitler is just trying to keep the bad people from causing trouble in America because ethnically speaking some people are more trouble then others.
And he is doing so by putting these undesirable people in camps, seperating children from parents and seperating husbands and wives too.
I wonder if any other country ever tried to do such good work before?
If so, do you by chance know what countries have tried this?
How did this ethnic cleaning work out for these other countries?
Sounds like a really good plan by pumpkinhead hitler.
