As the media reports that the Trump administration overplayed their hand in the child separation drama at the border, the Democratic Party is doing the same as well. The Trump White House is enacting a tough border enforcement policy. It’s an action item that helped usher him into the Oval Office. It’s time we start enforcing our immigration laws. This should not be shocking. Yet, with 2,000 reported migrant kids being separated from their parents due to trying to enter the country illegally; the media and the Democrats have gone insane in their criticism. They’ve going full Nazi, suggesting that we’re becoming like Nazi Germany and that these detention centers, which were around before Trump was president, are like concentration camps. You can’t win with the Left. Trump signed an executive order to keep families together, but liberals said it doesn’t solve the problem; it only leads to families being detained indefinitely. Didn’t they say Trump could fix this with a swipe of his pen?
This isn’t over. Thousands of kids have been ripped from their parents with no plan to reunite them. And now @realdonaldtrump wants to create new detention camps for families. Separating kids is unacceptable – but indefinite imprisonment of families is still cruel & inhumane.— Elizabeth Warren (@SenWarren) June 20, 2018
Trump's executive order does not fix this crisis. It gives no solution for the thousands of children who have been torn away from their families and remain separated.— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) June 20, 2018
Trump’s executive order merely replaces one inhumane act with another. In response to the overwhelming public outrage at his policy of tearing children away from their parents at the border, this administration thinks the appropriate response is to indefinitely detain families. https://t.co/whZNxHzLHv— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) June 20, 2018
Well, according to new polling from YouGov, just 30 percent of Democrats support the catch and release agenda of their party, while 19 percent overall support this approach. That’s uh, quite unpopular. In fact, from across the country and from various economic backgrounds, the consensus was that catch and release was a total garbage policy.
When asked if they support holding families together until an immigration hearing, 49 percent of Democrats supported this initiative, 44 percent overall. So, it would seem that a large portion of Democrats actually find Trump’s border policy sensible. The sample size of this survey was 1,500 people.
Maybe the Democrats need to check their backyard. They’ve drifted way Left to the point, where they appear to (and maybe they do) care more about illegal aliens than they do about Americans.
