It started with a tweet depicting illegal immigrant children sleeping in cages with the headline, “THIS IS HAPPENING NOW!”
The picture wasn’t from 2018, though. It was actually taken during the Obama years. That didn’t matter. The lie raced around the world, the Establishment Media pounced, and now Democrats are actually likening U.S. border security policies to Nazi Germany. It’s a complete hoax.
ABOVE: The photo used to attack Trump immigration policies was actually taken during the Obama years when the Obama administration held thousands of families in processing centers.
And those border security policies Democrats are now likening to “Nazi Germany”? They were enacted during the Clinton years and continued during the Bush and Obama years. The only thing to change during the Trump years is a focus on trying to be even MORE protective of children crossing the border illegally into the United States.
Some of these children are being used as cover for people to get into the United States – a situation that started in earnest during the Obama years. Word got out that Border Agents would treat families with children differently. You were quickly given food to eat, a place to sleep, and then after a few weeks, allowed to proceed into the United States on a promise you would return for full processing/vetting. Most never returned. As to what happened to the children being used as “immigration tickets” – who knows? Were they disposed of on the streets? Sold into child sex trafficking? Democrats don’t seem to care.
The media isn’t talking about the potential wrongdoing being done to these children. They focus on photos of “cages” and declare “This isn’t what America is about” while pointing the finger of blame at President Trump. Blame for policies that precede him by decades. Blame for wanting to protect children more than previous administrations did. Blame for wanting to make the border safer and more secure.
The above photo is from the Obama era. The below photo is from an illegal immigration processing center during the Trump years:
Today Nancy Pelosi and other Democrat “leaders” are showing up at the southern border for some photo-op politics. Some spineless Republicans are demanding President Trump “do something” about what they perceive to be a public relations nightmare. None of these politicians, many who have been in Congress for decades, have done anything remotely responsible or right regarding the immigration issue. Children continue to suffer. Women are being brutalized. Innocents on both sides of the border are added to the growing list of casualties.
Donald Trump wants to end this horrific status-quo and for that, he is being attacked and vilified. He wants to make sure the children being dragged (often against their will) across the border are in fact with family and not someone only using them to get into the United States. He wants to make sure the women are safe, and that the men are who they say they are. These are reasonable goals. They are moral ones. They exemplify true American values.
The leftist media would have you believe different. They would risk the lives of women and children in the hopes of swaying votes.
Don’t fall for it.
And don’t forget what they are doing. Make Democrats and spineless Republicans pay the price in 2018.
Be what they fear the most – an informed voter.
