While President Trump is working to stop illegal immigration, Democrats are demanding open borders.
Their policies on illegal immigration are absolutely insane.
And a top Democrat just revealed a horrifying plan that will leave you speechless.
From day one of his presidency, Trump has made stopping illegal immigration a priority.
This involves both enacting his own policies, and more rigorously enforcing current policies.
The most controversial of these measures, which is actually very much common sense, was the so-called “family separation policy,” which Barack Obama also implemented.
Under this policy, family units that cross into the United States are separated, with the children being held separately during processing.
This is essentially what already happens when somebody in the United States commits another crime.
Children are not allowed to accompany their parents to jail when they commit crimes.
But for illegal immigrants in particular this is important considering that human smugglers will often claim children as their own, when in reality that child was being brought into the United States without their parents, often to be sold into sex trafficking.
Of course, Democrats never mention that fact.
And one Democrat is taking their hysteria on this policy to new heights, stating that parents who were separated from their children should be compensated by the United States.
Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg announced his proposal during a campaign stop in Iowa.
“Can you imagine if you’ve been taken away from your parents and didn’t know where they are?” Buttigieg said in Charles City, Iowa, according to the Washington Examiner.
“The United States owes something to the kids in that situation. First of all, of course, to swiftly reunite them with their families. But we probably owe them a little more than that given what we’ve done. In fact, we definitely we owe them more than that.”
“We need to make sure that they have compensation and that we do things to try to make it right,” he continued.
Buttigieg doesn’t state what that compensation would look like.
But regardless of what it is, he is essentially arguing that people that break U.S. immigration laws have more rights than any other common criminal, and that they should even be given free money if they are treated like any other criminal.
This plays into a trend among Democrats across the country that see illegal immigrants as above the law.
In sanctuary cities and states, illegal immigrants are often allowed to get away with crimes in order to avoid deportation.
This is allowing criminal illegal aliens to remain on the streets, where they become emboldened to commit more crimes.
Angel moms, who have a child who was murdered by an illegal alien, have been sounding the alarm on this for a very long time.
But Democrats ignore them, and sometimes even dismiss them as racists.
Thankfully, Trump is taking their concerns seriously, and often invites angel moms to the White House.
And he’s following through on his promises to them, with his wall already making progress.
Do you think Trump should finish building the wall?
