There a report of another child that died while in custody of the U.S. government, and the Democrats and liberal press are having an emotional meltdown blaming President Trump and his immigration policies. The entire border crisis is the fault of Americans excusing and rewarding illegal immigration, and children are the victims.
The 10-year-old girl from El Salvador died on September 29 at the Children’s Hospital of Omaha, but her death was not made known until now. She was sick when she was taken into custody and held at a facility in San Antonio on March 4, 2018, in a “medically fragile” state. She was eventually transferred to Ohama, NE to be close to her, where she died on September 29 at the Children’s Hospital of Omaha.
Prince George’s County Maryland, a sanctuary county that has boated “protecting” illegal aliens, has admitted it ignored a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer and released an illegal alien with connection to the Salvadoran gang, MS-13. Joel Ernesto Escobar, age 17, had been accused of attempted murder but convicted of conspiracy to commit robbery in 2018 but released, has been implicated in a gang-related killing in April 2019.
Andrew Cephas with the PG County corrections department said Wednesday, May 22, that they had released Escobar. Cephas retracted his statement from Tuesday when he said that the department transferred custody of the teen to the state, and when he also claimed that the county notifies ICE of impending releases.
On Wednesday he admitted that PG County does NOT notify ICE except for the most severe crimes. However, incredibly, PG County did not consider Escobar’s charged with attempted murder in 2018 severe enough to make him a priority for the county to turn over for deportation.
America longer has a mostly agricultural, low skilled economy as it did in the 19th or early 20th century. Today, we need skilled and educate immigrants that can enhance the economy and assimilate into society.
President Trump has proposed a plan for what America needs: a "merit-based" immigration system compliments the "rule of law" and gets rid of the loopholes and outdated laws currently on the books.
America needs educated and skilled workers, and less emphasis on family ties. Currently, approximately 12 percent of immigrants are admitted based on employment and skills, while 66 percent are admitted based on family connections.
Under the new plan, skilled workers admitted would shift to 57 %, and immigrants admitted based on family connections would drop to 33 %.
In another example of the leftist rebellion against law and order, King County (Seattle) Executive Dow Constantine issued an order pressuring companies that fuel planes, to stop servicing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) flights or lose their contracts with the county. Bryan Wilcox, ICE’s acting field operations director in Seattle, said, “state and local efforts thwarting ICE operations serve only to create additional security concerns and add significant delays and costs to U.S. taxpayers.”
ICE has deported about 34,000 illegal aliens over the last decade from the King County airport, but a recent politically motivated study done by the University of Washington’s liberal Center for Human Rights criticized the use of the airport, and Constantine issued the directive to airport businesses.
Tanya Roman, an ICE spokesperson, issued a press release detailing some of the illegal immigrants deported with charter flights from the King County Airport. The list includes a Mexican citizen wanted for human trafficking, a Honduran man accused of rape and murder and a Guatemalan man charged with torture and murder.
CBS’ “60 Minutes” show did a report on the border on Sunday, April 27, and the New York Times did a piece about the “border crisis”, so it appears some liberals made be waking up to the problems on the border. However, conservatives need to have a reality check on illegal immigration and border security, because even if the border is secured today and all illegal immigration ended, what about the rest of the problem? Or have we lost America already?
- What about the Illegal aliens already here? Will they be rounded up and deported?
- What about the illegal alien children with “families”? Will DACA apply to them and their families? Will they receive a new special amnesty?
