  • wow where to begin with this pile of activist drivel. i hope Julie hirschfeld davis doesn't consider herself a journalist but i know the nyt does.

    she speaks of the administration's policy of separating migrant families. this practice is the end result of the Flores Settlement, a 1997 activist decision

    wow where to begin with this pile of activist drivel. i hope Julie hirschfeld davis doesn't consider herself a journalist but i know the nyt does.

    she speaks of the administration's policy of separating migrant families. this practice is the end result of the Flores Settlement, a 1997 activist decision that put strict rules on detention of minors in these situations. yet she says ' there is no law that requires families to be separated at the border'. blatant lie. but she says it. the implication being that if you don't incarcerate the parents, then the family is kept in tact. in other words, we're back to open borders. which is what this dangerous progressive mental patient 'journalist' wants. That's what trump is referring to when he says it's the left's laws that are tying his hands. the Flores Settlement dictates that children cannot be legally detained with their parents or whomever may be carting them across the border for an unreasonable amount of time.

    she characterizes the enforcement of this United States law as a 'widely condemned practice'. by what measure i wonder was she using to discern this info? the bubble people in Manhattan?

    she also refers to illegal immigrants as 'migrants apprehended crossing the border without authorization'. wow what a flourish of journalistic elan. although some would call it doublespeak. and a lame but well worn tactic of conflating legal migration with illegal immigration.

    she talks condescendingly of ag sessions statement that a strict approach is a vital tool for deterrence. i am not college educated but i know that that statement is true and the most humane. but he's painted as a sinister villain for stating a truth.

    she says the President is asking the public to discount what it sees with its own eyes but is that really a tall request when most people 'see' things through the distorted lens of activist wackos like julie hirschfeld davis?

    she is right that previous administrations have made exceptions to the actual laws that hold this country together. by not enforcing the laws enacted by representatives of the American constituency btw. but let's blame the current president for enforcing the will of the people.

    if we as a nation could get a handle on illegal immigration, imagine the resources we could put towards more legal immigration. not saying that's part of the current administration's goals, but think progressively!
