Trump Caved on the Border

President Trump was following the laws that were enacted by the Democrats from previous administrations. He does not have the authority to write his own laws, as the previous president attempted to do numerous times. We know the children being "held" at the border stations are safe and protected from predators and most were unaccompanied minors being cared for. But emotional rhetoric "trumped" reality and President Trump succombed to it, legitimizing all the argumentative lies.

I need to begin by stating that I am a father and I have supported the progress being made by Trump in getting America back on track. On the premise that no person is perfect and people make mistakes or take miss-steps in the course of making decisions, I have to state that this issue of illegals having their children ripped from their arms is totally inflated to a level of ridiculous and Trump signing the Executive Order that acknowledged it was happening is one of his first signs of weakness. He backed down; he caved to the media and all the leftist whiners.

President Trump has faced unreasonable opposition since he took office. I am sickened by these ignorant, whiney leftist Democrats who deliberately set out to promote their absurd hate-agenda at the cost of America and its people – its citizens. Whatever happened to the checks and balances in our country to where these treasonous, dangerous, failures in Congress can hold all of us hostage until election time to remove them? But I digress.

In the case of issuing the Executive Order, the President stepped backwards while demonstrating he has heart. He let the emotion of the lies pit him against the truth. Many of these perverted, so-called professional politicians have no interest in truth nor care about protecting American citizens over the evils that enter our borders. They also have no interest in protecting these unaccompanied minors from the predators using them to illegally enter our country. The facts show these same irresponsible, self-defined “leaders” have for years believed that illegal immigration requires control and illegals must be returned home; they have publicly stated that America cannot survive the wave of illegals that pour over our borders and must be caught and removed from our country.

When President Trump signed this order to re-unite illegal children with their so-called parents, he legitimized the lies touted by these politicians. Most Americans understand truth and can think for themselves when presented with that truth, coming to their own conclusions on how the lies and liars should be handled.

Trump’s initial view was correct: the current laws must be followed until changed. Congress is the branch that legally changes those laws and if the law is not what they like, they have the authority to change it. Until then, we all, including the President, must follow the law. The fact that cowards from the previous administration refused to enforce the law, shows the lack of respect they have for the law.

The entire administration should have stayed on point: the Democrats were the ones who passed these laws in the past, the President is adhering to and following those laws because he does not have the authority to write his own laws, the Democrats have to come to the table and work with the Republicans to legally change the law if their minds have changed; until then we are bound by the law.
