Should We Pay Illegal Alien Families Separated at the Border?
I have stopped being surprised by what the Democratic Party and some or all of their members are calling for.
The latest is Congressmen Joe Crowley a democrat from New York and chairman of the House Democratic Caucus. At a press conference at the U.S. Capitol the other day he suggested that the illegal alien families that attempted to break into our country with either their children or someone else’s children be “compensated” by you the U.S. taxpayer for separating the parents from the children.
The Washington Examiner is reporting at that press conference he stated:
To have these children ripped apart and separated is one of the most reprehensible things I've witnessed in my 20 years of service here in the House of Representatives…The damage that has been done to these families will be lifelong as well. And in fact, I suggest that they need to be compensated for what this administration did to them. And the first form of compensation needs to be the full reunification of these families
The New York Congressman is refereeing to President Trump’s “zero-tolerance” policy. That policy essentially ended “catch and release” and restored the rule of law in the United States. Under President Trump’s policy, anyone who were apprehended trying to come into the country illegally were separated and held until their hearings. Under former President Obama anyone who was caught trying to enter our country illegally were released and expected to show up to their court date, approximately 3% of those illegal aliens and their children showed up for their court date and former President Obama and the Democratic Party did nothing about it. Apparently they thought a 3% show rate was acceptable.
I would ask Congressmen Crowley if he felt all families separated in the United States due to their parents committing crimes should be compensated for what the U.S. legal system has done to them.
Have you noticed that the Democratic Party is running solely on one issue this year for the midterm elections and that is for all the rights of illegal aliens, their children and all non-U.S. citizens?
Do you not find that strange? Why are they not running on issues that might help U.S. citizens?
Also do not forget there is an increasing amount of democratic controlled cities that have or are voting on whether to allow non-U.S. citizens the right to vote in their municipal elections.
Do you see a pattern here?
