Our Southern Border - three stories

| No Comments

Three great stories today courtesy of Andrew Wilkow:

From the NYC ABC affiliate:

Mayor de Blasio turned away from detained migrant children's facility in Texas
Mayor Bill de Blasio and mayors from more than a dozen other U.S. cities gathered near a holding facility for migrant children on the Texas border with Mexico -- and were turned away from going inside.

The New York City mayor and his counterparts from Los Angeles, Seattle and beyond pilgrimaged to the Tornillo facility Thursday to push for the immediate reunification of migrant children with their families, even as President Donald Trump ordered a halt to the policy separating them.

Heh - they tried to do a little virtue signalling and got blocked.

From Newsweek:

CANADA ALSO DETAINS IMMIGRANT CHILDREN AND SEPARATES THEM FROM THEIR FATHERS
The United States has been the subject of intense international scrutiny for its immigration practice that has resulted in immigrant families being separated at the border. But it appears that neighboring Canada has done the same

This is not an immigration issue. If a parent is pulled over for driving erratically and there are kids in the car, these children will be put into care if that parent fails a field sobriety test. Tell me one jurisdiction where a child will not be placed into protective custody if an accompyning parent is arrested. Remember, these adults are breaking the law by coming across the border. They are cutting in line - trying to come in ahead of all the people trying to immigrate here legally. If you seee someone trying to cut in line do you get pissed?

And, from Gateway Pundit:

Stormy Daniels Says She’s Headed to the Border Next Week As Soon as She Figures Her Best Course of Action
Porn actress and Trump antagonist Stormy Daniels says she is heading to the border to help with the migrant crisis–but in a week as soon as she can figure out her best course of action. Daniels’ grandstanding Trump-hating attorney Michael Avenatti already jumped on the border crisis and is representing detained migrants and also claims to represent ICE whistleblowers. But first Daniels had to hang out in Boston with psycho Trump-hater Kathy Griffin where they posed togther flipping the bird at President Trump.

Well, she started her career as a whore - now she is just a media whore. In her 40's and seeing the career slipping away. Always classy!
