America has been consumed with the so-called “mainstream” media’s manufactured crisis surrounding illegal alien children being separated from their parents.
Journalists and Democrats are trying to manipulate events to destroy Donald Trump politically.
But Attorney General Jeff Sessions fought back and all hell is breaking loose after he used this word to describe illegal aliens.
In a speech before the National Association of School Resource Officers conference, Sessions defended the administration’s handling of illegal aliens crossing the border with children.
The Attorney General attacked the idea that the administration’s policy was immoral and unjustified by listing the dangers and costs of not enforcing federal immigration laws.
Sessions declared the real scandal was the Central American parents who “recklessly” placed their children in the hands of smugglers to illegally enter the United States.
The Attorney General revealed that these unaccompanied illegal aliens cost tax payers one billion dollars per year.
“You may not know, our government spends enormous sums of money every year to protect and care for unaccompanied alien children who were recklessly sent to the United States by their family members.”
“A billion dollars a year.”
Sessions also detailed the real threat an invasion of illegal aliens pose.
The Attorney General stated MS-13 gang members can use the flood of illegal alien children to infiltrate America.
“Some are brought to help replenish the gang and they are terrorizing immigrant schools and communities from Los Angeles to Louisville to Long Island to Boston.”
Additionally, Sessions blamed the Obama administration for not prosecuting adults crossing the border with children for this explosion.
Sessions detailed how from 2013 to 2017, the number of illegal aliens caught entering the country with children exploded from 13,000 to 74,000.
The Attorney General stated:
“If we refused to prosecute these adults for illegal entry — as many of our critics want us to do — that would be a disservice to the people of this country. It would also be an insult to those who come here legally, waiting their turn lawfully.”
The simple fact of the matter is the administration’s critics in the media and the Democrat Party don’t care about the well-being of these children.
If they did, they would be demanding the United States government adopt a tougher enforcement posture that would discourage parents from entrusting smugglers and drug cartels to shepherd their children into the United States illegally.
10,000 of the 12,000 children held by the government crossed the border without their parents.
That is the real family separation scandal.
But journalists and elected Democrats support this invasion of illegal aliens because they believe it will both damage Trump politically, and box him into accepting amnesty for illegal aliens.
Amnesty for illegal aliens would allow the Democrats to stuff the voter rolls with millions of freshly minted American citizens who would become reliable Democrat voters.
However, after enduring a week-long pummeling in the media over the totally manufactured family separation issue, the administration has regained its footing.
Sessions speech is evidence that the administration’s enemies in the media and Democrat Party badly miscalculated Trump’s resolve to fight for a secure border and end illegal immigration.
