Herr Trumph Upgrades Baby-Steps to Goosesteps

Fleeing from dangerous persecution and death squads in their Central American homelands, families rushing to our southern border are ordered by homeland Security Soldiers (SS) to take a "shower."

BROWNSVILLE, Texas - June 18, 2018 - PRLog -- Donald Trumph pledged to build "a beautiful wall along the border with Mexico," a key plank in his presidential manifesto.

In his very first dictate, Trumph in January 2017, mandated the hiring of 5,000 more Border Patrol agents and 10,000 immigration officers.  Basically, a battalion of supine mercenaries.

Entering the United States illegally is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail. But previously the Justice Department rarely targeted family units for prosecution. Yet, since January 22, 2017, families have endured the cruelest punishment of all from this president's administration.

In the Pre-Trumph regime, authorities typically routed migrant families to immigration courts, and they were detained no longer than three weeks. People with a credible fear of being returned to their native countries were likewise often sent to immigration administrator instead of being criminally prosecuted.

But now, Trumph's administration, the Department of Justice, Immigration Customs Enforcement, and Homeland Security are looking for ways to crush past policies and instead prosecute families that necessitate separating adults from their children.  Immigration hearings take weeks and months to prosecute because of the mushrooming number of cases.

Tens of thousands of children and families have been apprehended since 2014, when a surge of Salvadoran, Honduran and Guatemalan mothers and children raced into the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, fleeing violence and poverty.

"Detaining children for immigration purposes is never in their best interest and the prospect of detaining kids in tent cities is horrifying," said Clara Long, U.S. researcher at Human Rights Watch. "US authorities should focus on keeping families together, ensuring due process in asylum adjudications and protecting the rights of children." -The McClatchy Newspapers

And here lies the wiggling and squirming of the administration's contortion of the truth between Attorney General Jefferson Davis Sessions' policy (actually, it's only a memo), and the United Nation's Declaration on Human Rights and the mandates of our own immigration laws; not to omit our own personal values (Father's Day, Mother's Day, Lady Liberty with her Torch of Enlightenment call to all exiles).

"Of course, they (Trumpherters) have discretion not to do this," conservative Superior Court Justice, Andrew Napolitano said of separating families. "In my opinion, it is child abuse to separate children from their parents unless it's necessary to save a human life, and that's not the case here."

When AG Sessions claimed last night in New Orleans that, "The American people want their Laws enforced."  I have searched all night in our current Immigration lists of statutes for the law that gives the United States the right to separate children, infants, teenage girls from a parent; I could not find the simplest statement where the US Immigration laws suggested this abomination.

"On arrival at the death camps, the majority of children
(usually under the age of 12) were told to take showers.
But, as we now know, they were sent directly to the
gas chambers." –The Holocaust

Herr president Trumph dismisses journalists posing questions about the separation of children at the border with a passing quip:

"Change the laws…"

As I have just stated, there are no laws mandating the separation of infants from their families!

The only law regarding the detention of children is in the 1997 Flores Settlement that states:
1.      Children cannot spend more than 20 days in a detention facility
2.      Must be released to a family member or program
3.      Does not require parents to be separated
A federal judge ruled in 2016 that this applies to a family's immigrating status today.  Under this court order, a legal document, the administration is breaking the law!
