The debate over separating the kids from the parents at the border is an idiotic one when you think about it. Of course, NO one wants to separate kids from their parents. That seems to be yet another in a very long liberal line of sludge that’s spewed by the snowflake left. It’s the same type of thing we heard back in the 80’s when Republicans wanted to kill babies, or take the food out of the mouths of grandmothers. What rot!
But, who really is to blame for this happening? I did a blog a while back fact-checking some things on this, and while there really isn’t any law regarding separating children from their parents, there is a court case. In fact, it was a class-action court case. I won’t bore you by rehashing that…that’s not what this particular blog is about.
The fact remains clear. On Thursday, there was to be a vote in the House to basically solve the immigration problem. It was the more conservative of the two bills being considered by the House. It failed 193-231. There were 40 some Republicans that went along with all of the Democrats in making the bill fail.
Now, part of that bill would have addressed separating children from their parents. Let’s be clear about something here. Only Congress can pass a law. The President can’t do it, and judges can’t do it. That’s the Constitution folks…and it’s set up for a reason. Donald Trump, though wrong about there being “a law” about separating kids from their parents, was right about one thing. Congress should be the ones to solve this problem, and can solve it immediately with a law. He already said he’d sign it.
Chuck Schumer on the other hand, doesn’t seem to understand that. In the well of the Senate yesterday, he said the president could solve it with his pen. Now, that may be under the Obama regime, but that’s not what the Constitution says. In fact, what he was referring to was an Executive Order (which Trump has already signed). Schumer needs to go back to 9th grade civics class if he fails to understand how it works!
But that still doesn’t answer the real question, who is at fault here? Are the Republicans at fault because they allowed an Obama era problem to fester into their administration? Is Trump with his “Zero Tolerance” on border crossings at fault? Are the House Democrats at fault because they could have rectified the situation yesterday, but didn’t?
I say there’s someone else at fault. It’s the “parents” of the kids coming across illegally. They are the ones that have put their kids in harms way (actually not…more in a minute) by crossing the border illegally. They are the ones that have broken the law. Actually, their kids, even the ones shown living in a fenced-in area with space blankets, sleeping on the floor have it better in a lot of cases then where they came from. They are being fed. They are taking showers. They are getting air conditioning. They have seen doctors. Those are all things they didn’t see back in their home countries.
You want to blame someone? Do what most Americans have done. Blame the adults crossing the border illegally. It’s what liberals seem to want to gloss over in this debate. These people are breaking the law. That is one undeniable and one unarguable fact. Until they get that through their thick heads…this debate goes nowhere.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
