It's time to Keep it Honest. If you let a lie go unchecked it creates havoc.

Barack Obama

President Barack Obama had a plan for immigrants that fell in line with history. Allowing them into the country to better themselves and our country. His plan was not to make them the enemy.

Trump defends his immigration policy with lies

Donald Trump met with Jose Diaz Balert of Telemundo for an interview and began to defend his immigration policy by blaming the former President of the United States, Barack Obama.

Fact: Obama's policy did not separate children from family unless it was to check and make sure that the individual they came with was not abusing, endangering or human trafficking a child, once that information was cleared, the child was returned to the family.

Trump said that Obama left him a family separation policy and that he was following it. After Balert question the validity of his comment; Trump refused to accept responsibility and claimed, "I brought families together, I'm the one that put them together." He continued with; "I was very good to immigrants."

Fact: March of 2017, John Kelley who now makes money from the child detention centers and was formerly head of Homeland Security spoke of implementing a separation program. April 1, 2018; Jeff Session, former Attorney General made the announcement for a new "zero tolerance" immigration policy.

  • Everyone caught crossing the border would be criminally prosecuted; "If you smuggle a child in, we will prosecute you and that child will be separated from you."

Fact: June of 2018, after Trump received backlash from the Republican Party as well as Democrats that he stopped the separation.

Sadly, 2700 plus children have been separated from their families and some may never see their families again because of lack of records claimed by the Homeland Security. Without records, we will never know how many children exactly have been separated. But we do know that he multiple detention centers in every state.

Fact: Trump did not order the unification of families until he was ordered to by law.


Exact amount of detainees unknown, as it changes constantly.

The hypocrisy of it all

Considering that 3 months ago, Donald Trump declared a national emergency due to the unsecured borders and illegal immigrant caravans, then losing funding, the issue died on the vine or did it?

On May 2019, Trump made an announcement about new immigration laws.

  • Change the asylum system
  • Implement a trust fund, paid for by border fees to finance border security.
  • Screen out the merit-less. Who will the judge and jury on this? Where do families fall under this process?

A few things he forgot to mention:

  • What about the illegal immigrants in the country already?
  • What about the Dreamers?
  • What about the 300 foreign immigrants who live in the United States legally with Temporary Protected Status? Trump tried to cut this program, but was tied up legally.

A twenty minute interview in which Donald Trump continued to push his lies; even after he had tweeted to his followers before he also announced his re-election that they were going to round up up millions of illegal immigrant families, up to 2000 in 10 cities on Sunday, the day of Sabbath, may have just given America answers to those questions.

By deporting the illegal immigrants, they do away with Dreamers and wait for the Supreme Court to give them the go ahead on the Temporary Protected Status Immigrants.

We can't forget that Trump has threatened America and policy with "his" judges.

Trump believes he will do well among Hispanics. Maybe his people didn't tell him about the latest poll. Three our of four Hispanics do not like or trust Donald Trump.

      When you are escaping, these children may be better off here than they are there. Trumps law separates indefinitely. Who cares what flag they carry. They are escaping poverty, political retribution and drug cartels, they aren't giving up who they are. For centuries, when the Irish fly their flags in Boston to celebrate St. Patty's day, do you they get ridiculed, no because they are white.

      Military bases fly flags from many countries to show unity. Trump supporters use them to spread hate and divisiveness.

      Aliens and Felons, to here you and all those Trump followers you would think they are all in that category.

      Caring about others is not a waste of time, spreading hate and fear is. If you don't like what I have to say QUIT following my stuff. I hear enough Trump rhetoric from Trump daily.

      The fault of separated families has to start with the family themselves. They know they are breaking the US law, and yet they take their children across the border, or let someone else that they pay to take them across the border.

      FACT: If the children didn't cross the border illegally they would be separated would they? NO!

      Why did Times magazine show a child in a detention cage, and say Trump was responsible?

      Do you really want thousands of people from Central America demanding entry into the US? They carry their own country's flag while burning the US. Is this any comparison to the immigrants that come into the country legally, or those that choose to become American Citizens. NO!

      Why do the democrats provide sanctuary to illegal aliens? Especially Convicted Illegal Alien FELONS!

      Recently 45,000 illegals were rounded up near the border in the US and they came from 52 countries. The US gives aid to countries around the world but we can't take care of all their people, can we? Illegal alien cost the US tens of billions of dollars a year And more than that if we include the indirect costs of processing all those illegals caught in the US. The court and justice system is overloaded with these illegals, and then there are those illegals that commit crimes even felonies. They cost in the arrest, prosecution and conviction. Then they increase prison costs for however long they are there. Then CA will give them sanctuary when they serve their time. They also include gangs from many countries including the Mexican Drug Cartel, And if we extrapolate on the number of criminals arrested, then how many are free and committing crimes.

      Why don't you spend time worrying about American, legal immigrants and America. This focus on illegals doesn't serve that purpose. Before you can take care of others you have to take care of your family.
