Deplorable donald's misadministration: biblical to separate immigrant children


Separation of church and state. Dotard donald's supporters love to cite the constitution only when it fits their deplorable agenda. It's bad enough that dotard donald's racist policies are separating children from their parents; they are also losing track of these kids. Where in the bible does it say God favors these activities?

Quote:
The White House cited a nonexistent law and the Bible to defend the government’s controversial policy of separating undocumented immigrant parents from their children upon their arrest at the U.S. border with Mexico.

CNN reporter Jim Acosta asked press secretary Sarah Sanders about comments made by Attorney General Jeff Sessions earlier Thursday, in which he referenced the Bible to defend the administration’s border tactics.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order,” said Sessions.

In her first press briefing since CBS News reported that she may soon leave her position in the Trump administration, Sanders said she had not heard Sessions’s exact comments but agreed with the sentiment.

“I can say it is very biblical to enforce the law,” said Sanders, “that is repeated a number of times in the Bible.”

There is no U.S. law requiring that the children of immigrants entering the country illegally to be separated from their parents. Sanders later blamed Democrats for not fixing border policy despite the fact that Republicans control both houses of Congress and the White House.

President Trump’s administration has been criticized in recent weeks for stepping up efforts to separate migrant children from their parents as a means of deterring more immigrants. Over 10,000 migrant children are currently in federal custody. Previous administrations have chosen to deal with border crossers via non-criminal immigration courts, which did not require separating families, but under Trump, children are being placed in camps when no relatives or foster care spots are available.

Those who have visited the camps have compared them to prisons, and NBC News reported that in one detention center a mural of Trump along with a quote from his book “The Art of the Deal” was painted on the wall. Earlier this week, a migrant mother claimed that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents took her infant daughter away while she was breastfeeding her, a charge the government denied. Other immigrants have reported that agents have told them their children were being taken to bathe only to never see them again. Some children have been in foster care for months without knowing the location of their parents while other parents say they’ve been deported for months but still haven’t had their children returned to them.

The increased separations can be attributed to a change in White House policy that took effect in early April that stated that anyone attempting to cross the border illegally would be incarcerated and charged. The policy’s goal, per a memo obtained by the Washington Post, is to deter border crossings. Since children are not allowed in jails, they’re separated from their parents. Many of those attempting to cross the border are seeking from violence in their home countries, but new policies would disallow asylum seekers for the reasons of domestic abuse and gang violence.

CBS News reporter Paula Reid pushed back on Sanders’s claim that federal agencies were simply following the law by pointing out that no such law existed, asking why the White House refused to take responsibility for its policy change.

“There is no law that requires families be separated at the border,” said Reid. “This is the administration’s choice to move from civil matters on immigration to criminal.”

Sanders again cited nonexistent legislation, arguing that the White House had been consistent in its policy of enforcing laws. This answer caused an emotional reaction from CNN political analyst Brian Karem.

“Come on, Sarah, you’re a parent, don’t you have any empathy for what these people are going through?” asked Karem. “They have less than you do.”

Sanders declined to answer the question.

That's a genuinely scary thing for someone in that position to be saying. Separation of Church and state people.... She's also implying that they are using children as hostages.

Your 100% in anything, even if you're not the best at it, is a success.

This is a Democrat law. Republicans have introduced legislation to change this old Democrat law but Democrats don't want to vote for it. They need 60 votes.

'They Peeled Him Away': Watters Points to Elian Gonzalez Case After Dems Rip Trump for 'Separating Migrant Children'

http://insider.foxnews.com/2018/06/1...e-watters-said

Jesse Watters said that Democrats are being hypocritical in their criticisms of President Donald Trump supporting criminal law that may separate illegal-immigrant minors from their parents.

Watters said the Democrats used to support the forced separation of migrant children, pointing to the 1999 Elian Gonzalez case that garnered heavy media attention at the time.

In November 1999, Gonzalez -- who was about six at the time -- fled Cuba with his mother, Elizabeth Rodriguez, and several others on a doomed voyage to the U.S. on an aluminum craft.

The boat's engine later failed and the group encountered bad weather. Elian's mother ultimately drowned.

The Immigration and Naturalization Service under President Bill Clinton released Gonzalez to his great-uncle, Lazaro, upon reaching the United States, but Gonzalez' father, Juan, demanded that the boy be returned to him in Cuba.

Despite calls by Lazaro and the Cuban-American community in Florida, Clinton Attorney General Janet Reno ordered Gonzalez be returned to Cuba -- an edict that led to dozens of federal agents storming the younger Gonzalez' house and taking forcible custody of the boy in 2000.

"They peeled this crying child away," Watters said. "They started it."

"The empathy play, where they pretend that they care? I'm not buying it," he said, pointing to criticism from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and several members of the mainstream media.

"We need a healthy economy and we shouldn't be embarrassed about our system. If you want to look at a system that is non-capitalistic, just take a look at what was perhaps the wealthiest country in the world and today people are starving to death. It's called Venezuela."

Family values for the GOP means how much money do they inherit? The GOP and their supporters are as evil as they come. They thought they could distract everyone from their evil agenda by using kids as hostages. They are too evil to think straight. Steal from the poor and give to the rich.

agreed. None of these laws or their enforcement is going to end the problem of migration. 200 years of laws/policies haven't made a dent in solving the problem of US/Mex migration, why would this one be any different?


if people really want to solve the problem with migration, they need to eliminate the reasons to migrate in the first place. The US gov and its military are never going to go along with such idea.

Also, the whole citing of the bible is stupid. constitutional/civil laws did not exist in those times, as the middle east was controlled by an emperor.



The "laws" the apostle Paul would refer to are God's laws, which is the 10 commandments.
