1500 Immigrant Children Unaccounted For; Blame Dems

It's not 'cruel' to separate families at the border — children will be 'put into foster care or whatever'

Allow this as a start to the perfect example of an American long gone and a future of horrors. Trump blames a sick and unfathomable immigration policy of Democrats.

Now the horror.

"....or whatever."

If you know US politics (Ideology and practice) you know conservatives and their GOP are vehement in their opposition to immigration. The US is comprised of over a hundred million people who oppose the very fabric (immigration the 18th century) which was a foundation of the so-called "New World." Immigration to escape horrific conditions in their native countries is actually more aptly called refugees. In fact, if the history offered to us as children is correct, (and we have evidence it was not always correct) many who joined the New World were a variant of refugees for a better life. The nation has roots in immigration and yes, some were refugees. Yet, to think such seems far from the historic paradigm of the GOP.

As the standard barrier for the GOP and conservative America, Trump certainly foretold his handling of issues related to Immigration while declaring an intent to run in 2016. Trump's formal announcement after his now infamous escalator charade. 

After one year we are hearing this based on the Trump Administration policy of separating immigrant children from their parents. Let's make certain the scene is clear/ We have ICE agents who have been ordered to take children from parents and facilitate housing the children in barracks?  As you will see and hear in the following video segment (and it runs 11 plus minutes for good reason) some of the children (1500) are unaccounted for (excuse the ending preposition). 

Trump's Chief of Staff recently responded to a question from an NPR host regarding the policy of using family separation as a means to an end.
On the administration's recently announced "zero tolerance" policy that calls for separating families who cross the border illegally and prosecuting them 
"Let me step back and tell you that the vast majority of the people that move illegally into the United States are not bad people. They're not criminals. They're not MS-13. ... But they're also not people that would easily assimilate into the United States, into our modern society. They're overwhelmingly rural people. In the countries they come from, fourth-, fifth-, sixth-grade educations are kind of the norm. They don't speak English; obviously that's a big thing. ... They don't integrate well; they don't have skills. They're not bad people. They're coming here for a reason. And I sympathize with the reason. But the laws are the laws. ... The big point is they elected to come illegally into the United States, and this is a technique that no one hopes will be used extensively or for very long."
Could Trump have found a more facilitating authoritarian who consistently exhibits bigoted rhetoric as an indicator of his personal ideology? I suggest not as Chief of Staff. Kelly facilitates as effectively as another well-known adviser to international leaders who governed in autocratic states. A dangerous reality.

Kelly sought to clarify his statement, but remarks following his initial comments fall in the same overfilled basket of: "Oh I was inarticulate." A basket with a rare exception for a couple of cases of Dems misspeaking (e.g. Harry Reid on Obama's race as a potential candidate) is a basket as filled with GOP statements as your childhood Easter basket.

The Boston Globe ran a piece regarding Kelly's background and it reveals what we have come to expect from conservative America: Do as I say, not as I live.

Again the MSNBC segment which follows is not a short segment it runs a full 11 minutes and slightly longer. however, if you fail to educate and inform yourself, you are as guilty of facilitating-acquiescence to Trump's draconian policy as those who crafted the policy. Yes, a group of people associated with Trump sat in meetings to devise a policy which has led to a most shameful of policies.

A day later and after a barrage of concern expressed via social media and with the full expectation of what will come after the Hayes interview, Trump took to friendly media with typical carnival barking. "M13, M13, M13........."  Trump has supported Kelly's statement via doubling down on references to immigration as a path for M13.  

Speaking of the horrors of a Los Angles originated gang in no way works at rationalizing the policy of separating children from parents.  Especially when the policy and practices lead to 1500 children someplace on Earth with no hope of a future...and possibly in the hands of abusive people. 

"....or whatever."
