I’d like to challenge somebody to debate the topic of the immigration fiasco, specifically the separation of children from parents, and just how anybody would think that it’s the presidents fault that it’s happening. Looking forward to a good, respe

isn't the idea of being an immigrant absurd though? especially in America. this country was built on immigration. which half them mf didn't wanna come in the first place.

I'm going to start by saying that I'm not American and I try my very best to not follow American politics, so I'm taking what The Eleutherian said at face value. If Trump is really trying to fix the system by ridding it of bad laws, I don't think enforcing everything, waiting for problems to present themselves, and allowing the issues to continue while trying to pass better laws, is the best way to do it. It's probably the fastest way, but there will be collateral damage to people who had nothing to do with the bad laws being passed in the first place. Instead, enforcement organizations should have pointed out which laws they themselves were only selectively enforcing, and there should have been a deadline on the governing body reviewing them. It may not be Trump's fault that the law that putting kids in cages was existed in the first place, but it is his fault that it was being enforced instead of simply being reviewed and changed. I don't think his desire to weed out bad laws is a bad thing, but I think that his method of doing so is deeply flawed.

you are correct in that the president didn't start this. however, his AG Jeff Sessions was the first to enforce it. they usually take children away and have done this but they would cherry pick. it was NOT done to this extent. and they kept no logs so those kids that are spread out, they don't even know what parents they belong to. I guarantee you children will fall through the cracks. video to be uploaded later. below is a snipet from fox news, The Trump administration isn’t the first to separate adults and children at the border – but it did up the ante with the “zero-tolerance” policy, what the Justice Department called a “new” plan to curtail illegal immigration in April. “If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you and that child will be separated from you as required by law,” Sessions said in May.
