The United Nations is committed to open borders on a global scale, and they are seizing on a media-driven controversy regarding immigrant families to push-back against Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration.
“We are deeply concerned that the zero tolerance policy recently put in place along the US southern border has led to people caught entering the country irregularly being subjected to criminal prosecution and having their children – including extremely young children -taken away from them as a result,” the UN said in a statement.
Leftist advocacy organizations are attempting to make this into a large national issue, exploiting the ignorance of the public to score political points with the voters. Attorney General Jeff Sessions set the record straight on the Hugh Hewitt show this week. He maintains that the rule must be enforced, and that the national security interests of the United States outweigh the feelings of the law-breaking families.
“You can’t be giving immunity to people who bring children with them, recklessly, and improperly, and illegally,” Sessions said to Hewitt. “The law requires us to keep children in a different facility than one for adults.”
The UN not only wants the US to give illegal immigrants harbor, but also wants the US to break the law to provide special treatment for these individuals as they sneak across the border.
“The majority of people arriving at the U.S.’s southern border have fled Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador – in many cases either because of rampant insecurity and violence, or because of violations of a range of other rights, such as health, education, and housing,” the UN said in their statement. “The US should immediately halt this practice of separating families and stop criminalizing what should at most be an administrative offence – that of irregular entry or stay in the US.”
Trump maintains that it is Democratic obstructionists in Congress who are preventing the laws from being changed so families would not have to be broken up at the border.
“Separating families at the Border is the fault of bad legislation passed by the Democrats. Border Security laws should be changed but the Dems can’t get their act together!” Trump exclaimed.
