The Progressive Left, which today includes many Republicans as well as Democrats, have no platform to run on for the November midterm elections. So, they have decided to make the separation of children from parents of illegal aliens the issue they want to run with.
Instead of laying out their plans to improve life for their prospective supporters in campaign speeches and rallies, many of them have chosen to try to show just how "inhuman" the Trump Administration is by going on the road to their nearest southern border with Mexico to tour facilities holding illegals who have just crossed into the US. Many Leftists like Jeff Merkely, Nancy Pelosi, and a handful of others hope to show the American people how cruel and dastardly the Trump Administration is for holding children of illegals in separate facilities from their parents. Many on the Left, including the main propaganda media are calling Donald Trump and his supporters Nazis for the policy of family separation.
Anyone who has followed politics for a length of time, knows they are lying through their teeth because not one of them really cares about illegals, at any age as human beings. Their bottom line is politics and their desire to be reelected in November, not to mention the prospect of acquiring new voters in the form of the illegals themselves. We know they could care less about these families because they were silent on the issue during the Obama years when he was doing the exact same thing. As a matter of fact, many pictures showing kids crowded into large areas used by the Left to demean the president and those who support him that we are currently seeing are from 2014 when Obama placed literally over a hundred thousand children on various military bases in the US.
Thus, we know the Progressive Left really is not interested in the welfare of illegal immigrants themselves, only in using their situation as an excuse to hopefully get the votes in November. If they were sincere in their concern for these families, they would have brought the issue up during the Obama years.
The nucleus of the Left's concern is also rooted in making sure we have cheap labor, open borders, and the continuation of the NWO where the US has no identity as an individual country, but is part of an overall world entity, centrally and primarily governed by the UN continues.
The Progressive Left shows no concern for American citizens in wanting to keep illegal families together immediately after arriving here, this because we have no idea whether or not adults claiming to be parents, really are the parents of the children they are with until they are checked.
We also have the crime associated with unchecked illegal immigration in the form of street gangs, illegal drugs, sex trafficking, slave trade, and the inclusion of children in human trafficking which includes the sex and slavery trades. Only politicians with vested interests in certain criminal activities, financial or otherwise would approve of an open border where such vice trades can conduct business in the US, unrestrained.
The bottom line here is, we see no tears or concern from the Progressive Left over the deaths of American children at the hands of illegal aliens who are now permanently separated from their parents. The fact that 13 million American children are living in poverty, in neighborhoods where it is not safe for them to be walking on gang-controlled streets, being kidnapped, raped, and killed, and snatched off the streets for the sex and slave trade while these same politicians give billions of our tax dollars to illegals from welfare to medical expenses.
