One piece of the puzzle: The Left Wing Industrial Media Complex:

The media is doing a great disservice to the American public. They do not know immigration law. They do not know the difference between a refugee and an aslymn petitioner. They are so uniformed and choose to remain so. Nor to they wish to inform the public of the ins and outs of US immigration law.

It is against the law for me to swim across the Rio Grande or forge across the glacier fed rivers up north to enter the USA. It’s against the law for any US citizen or any person to enter the Unites States at some place other than a designated point of entry.

It is legal to catch any illegal Mexican National crossing the border (with or without family) and deport them on the spot. That’s the way it is and has been for years. Abutting nation, shared border, adjoining nation immigration laws. There are immigration laws designed specially for OTMs (other than Mexicans), and as seen all over the news lately, applying to Central Americans. There are laws governing where to apply for asylum for OTMs. If you hail from Guatemala and are in route, that place would be Mexico, assuming you are heading north into the USA. There are places to apply for asylum in your home country....to start the process to apply for a VISA and keep the family safe and intact while waiting. There are loopholes and complexities.

Yet, the media chooses to ignore telling its viewers this, choosing to keep the viewers ignorant and in the dark.

And yes, it’s a waste of time to point out that 700,000 servicemen and women are separated from their families today.

re BillT 1149am - Now I wonder, what are some of the plausible reasons that the lamestream does not "wish to inform the public of the ins and outs of US immigration law." Considering this is the real issue here, because the relevant "ins and outs" are not complex, especially pointing out that such separations have occurred for both Americans and aliens for decades.

The leading lights of the left fail over and over in their lying narratives but the dummies don't know the difference.

It is bad enough that the magazine outright reported on an event that didn’t actually happen. But Time’s cover adds another layer of media malpractice to the whole thing. In effect, the magazine is exploiting the tears of a little girl in order to drive home a political point; it is tricking readers into thinking a photograph is depicting something that objectively it is not.
In other contexts, this tactic would have been roundly condemned. By way of example, several years ago, when pro-life activist David Daleiden used some stock footage of a stillborn baby to illustrate an abortion worker’s claims, the news media had a feeding frenzy over it. The Washington Post, CNN, ThinkProgress and other outlets were quick to point it out. Nobody likes to be fooled.
Not to be outdone, The Associated Press last week published a bombshell report on a civil rights lawsuit brought by numerous immigrant children. They were allegedly held at a detention center in Virginia and subjected to brutal abuse, including being “beaten while handcuffed and locked up for long periods in solitary confinement, left nude and shivering in concrete cells.”

The allegations are horrifying. What was surprising, however, was the way the article framed them. In the original report, which has since been amended online, readers had to make it through more than 20 paragraphs before learning that most of the alleged abuse took place under the Obama administration.

The deplorables ain't taking it anymore -

CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta was met with jeers ahead of President Donald Trump’s rally with South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster on Monday evening.
Attendees of the event chanted “Go home, Jim!” at Acosta, as one man held up a sign that read “CNN Sucks.”

Quotes

“Without a doubt the images, and the reality, from 2014, just like 2018, are not pretty. And so we expanded family detention. … I freely admit it was controversial. We believed it was necessary at the time. I still believe it is necessary to remain a certain capability for families.” —Obama DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson

“We cannot have a system of catch and release. We are a sovereign nation. We have to secure our borders. And so we just simply cannot have a situation where people are apprehended, they’re released, they don’t return to court, and they know they’re able to do that.” —Jeh Johnson

Do as I say, not as I do: “Are we a nation that accepts the cruelty of ripping children from their parents’ arms, or are we a nation that values families and works to keep them together? Do we look away, or do we choose to see something of ourselves and our children?” —Barack Obama

Dezinformatsiya: “The June 12 photograph of the 2-year-old Honduran girl became the most visible symbol of the ongoing immigration debate in America for a reason. Under the policy enforced by the administration, prior to its reversal this week, those who crossed the border illegally were criminally prosecuted, which in turn resulted in the separation of children and parents. Our cover and our reporting capture the stakes of this moment.” —a Time magazine spokesman defending the rag’s phony cover photoshop

“In our country, there are 2.7 million children separated from parents who are currently incarcerated in American prisons. Their story is not less worthy of notice. One in nine black children has a parent in prison. Is that inequality not sympathetic enough? And what about children who are separated from their parents by illness, death, or economic troubles?” —Rev. William Owens

Here's the latest outrage from the McClatchy News Service.
http://www.sacbee.com/opinion/california-forum/article213722049.html
Big, tear jerking headline - "Meet a local immigrant family. They’re legal, and Trump still split them up."
Next, we read - 'And the First Lady visits children taken by the government while wearing an “I don’t care” jacket.'
Actually - she didn't - but what are facts to folks out to froth at the mouth about everything anybody named Trump does?
That poor, poor, family that was 'split up'? Oh yeah - some little detail about not showing up for his immigration hearings and oh yeah, 4 (count 'em) FOUR DUIs. That's exactly the kind of diverse, vibrant addition to our society we just can't live with out. And remember folks, this is all from an opinion piece that is supposed to make us feel really, really angry at Trump. Waiting for the lefties to chime in here. Waiting, waiting, waiting.....

But she is a child! You can’t deport her.

Well, we are a nation of laws. She had no prior contact with ICE, which means she did not submit a DACA application. But, but, but she is mentally slow. Slow or not, they found a shotgun in her home, a big no-no. No illegal alien can have access to a firearm, minor or adult. But, but, but......

From Business Insider

How low can we go:
"The officers say, 'I'm going to take your child to get bathed' — that's one we see again and again," Chandler said. After the parent asks about their child, agents have said "This is a long bath", or "you won't be seeing your child again", she added.

Who should be held responsible for this disgusting behavior and should they be able to keep their job ?

Why do you care, you're not committing misdemeanors or felonies while caring for a minor child?

Gregory

Yes... and connecting the dots, as a past deportee having crossed the border illegally, the mother of that 2 year old was committing a FELONY.

Bill Tozer

Kinda of topic. Obama era whistle blower addresses unaccomplied minors. Heck,, do we even know that these “babies” are separated from the real mothers? A father was just separated from his daughter because the father had a prior conviction for rape....in the USA. Do we release dad into the US? No. Do we try to place child with relatives in the US? Do we send them both back? What a mess.

The most humane method is to deport back them as a family.

Quip of the day from a former government official remarking on the protesters occupying ICE buildings:

“Why are they protesting ICE? It’s the Border Patrol that is seperating mothers from children [at the border]”

Garza said some of the separations are likely to continue, despite the executive order, because some of the children aren’t related to the adults purporting to be their parents. Some cartels, he said, will sneak across the border by pretending to be families

Garza did not have specific numbers about how many children may have been recruitedby drug cartels.

Each day, agents confiscate mass amounts of drugs along the border -- drugs that could kill people in the U.S., he said.

“They’re focusing on this issue with families, but they’re not focusing on the fentanyl, the cocaine and all these dangerous drugs that are killing our kids in this country,” he said. “Those are the drugs we need to stop.”
