For many american’s, the Presidency of Donald Trump has been exasperating. For many, their aren’t any penalties for his misdeeds. The reality he has been checked.
There are literally hundreds of cases awaiting a court date.
However, Americans saw a rare about face from the President, after recordings and images of small children crying outraged the nation and the world.
In an attempt to honor two campaign promises, the president has limited the number of immigrants attempting to cross the border from Mexico and was hoping to force the democrats to agree to a new immigration bill that would include money for a border wall.
On Wednesday Donald Trump, signed a national an executive order designed to keep migrant families together at the U.S. Mexican border. Abandoning his earlier claim that the crisis was caused by an iron-clad law and not a policy that he could reverse.
In Trump’s new executive order, the defense secretary is instructed to take all available measures to provide to the Department of Homeland Security any existing facilities for the housing and care of “alien families” or to build them if necessary.
The challenge for the government is locating the children. Who were separated from their families without paper work and relocated in some cases thousands of miles from the border.
Don’t throw away your signs!
The Executive order was for just for the cameras. The new order will allow immigrants to be sent to military bases.
Yesterday, the New York Times reported the US is preparing to shelter as many as 20,000 migrant children on four American military bases, to carry out President Trump’s order to keep immigrant families together after they are apprehended at the border.
The 20,000 beds at bases in Texas and Arkansas would house “unaccompanied alien children,” said a Pentagon spokesman, Lt. Col. Michael Andrews, although other federal agencies provided conflicting explanations about how the shelters would be used and who would be housed there. There were reports of widespread confusion on the border.
It was unclear whether the military housing would also house the parents of children in migrant families that have been detained, and officials at the White House, the Defense Department and the Department of Health and Human Services said on Thursday that they could not provide details.
On Wednesday, he encouraged the house to draft immigration reform. Reliably, the president doubled down in tweet.
Today, the children are on lock down. The press are not allowed access. The White House say’s 500 immigrant children who were separated from their families at the southern border have been reunited with their families since May. The Associated Press first reported that about 500 of the more than 2,000 children separated had been reunited. A senior Trump administration official the AP spoke with said many of the children were reunited within days. The official wasn’t sure how many of the reunited children remain in custody with their families or how many are no longer in the country.
Americans stood up for the children and forced the President hands.
Today, the President continues to villainies brown skinned immigrants. He invited families to the White House that have been victimized by immigrants. They stood behind him holding photos of family members. “These are the American citizens permanently separated from their loved ones … ‘permanently’ being the word that you have to think about,” he said. “They’re not separated for a day or two days. These are permanent separations, because they were killed by criminal illegal aliens.
