Democrats appear to want illegal alien families to live “in the shadows”

Pratt on TexasIt is now abundantly clear that Democrats and other Leftists want illegal aliens to live in the shadows where they are subject to all the bad things they told us comes with living “in the shadows” over the last decade.

They decried illegal alien children and parents being held separately while their cases of illegal entry into our country are adjudicated. Now, President Trump has done what they asked and issued an order that they be detained together as family units.

The Left is not happy with this arrangement that leaves families together. Their solution is Obama’s solution of simply releasing these folk into the country on a promise that they will magically show up some day for a court date. That was called “catch and release” and it directly puts theses folk in a life in those shadows so trumpeted over the past many years.

This situation is the same as being picked up on a warrant for an unpaid traffic ticket – you go to jail until the matter is settled.

While in custody, these families are protected from predators; given health care; given plenty of food; given shelter, and; the list of benefits goes on.

It is true that these people do not have their liberty while being detained but they are being given the blessing of due process even though they are not citizens of our great country. The detention is temporary until their cases are properly heard and ruled upon as required by law.

There is nothing about any of this that compares to wartime internment camps or any other sad episode in our country despite what liberals claim. This situation is the same as being picked up on a warrant for an unpaid traffic ticket – you go to jail until the matter is settled.

What do you think?...
