The “Missing” Children Aren’t Missing

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JUNE 1, 2018

WHEN IT COMES TO ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSING THERE IS A LOT OF FICTION BEING PORTRAYED AS FACT. THE LEFT WANTS YOU TO THINK THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS DELIBERATELY SEPARATING CHILDREN FROM THEIR PARENTS AT THE BORDER.

THERE IS A TRIPLING IN THE NUMBER OF ILLEGAL CROSSINGS, NOW AT 50,000 FOR THE LAST TWO MONTHS. THE LEFT CLAIMS 1400 CHILDREN ARE LOST. NOT TRUE. ALL HAVE BEEN PLACED WITH SPONSORS OR FAMILY MEMBERS, BUT IN THE LAST FISCAL YEAR 14 PERCENT OF THOSE CALLED TO CHECK ON THE CHILDREN DID NOT ANSWER THEIR PHONE. THE DEMOCRATS CLAIM THESE ARE LOST KIDS.

THERE ARE LOOPHOLES IN THE IMMIGRATION LAWS THAT DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS REFUSE TO FIX. THEY WANT THE ILLEGALS HERE BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE IT MEANS FUTURE VOTES FOR THEM.

A WHITE HOUSE STATEMENT SAYS: “IF WE WERE TO HAVE THOSE FIXES IN FEDERAL LAW, THE MIGRANT CRISIS EMINATING FROM CENTRAL AMERICA WOULD LARGELY BE SOLVED IN A VERY SHORT TIME. FAMILIES WOULD THEN BE ABLE TO BE KEPT TOGETHER AND COULD BE SENT HOME EXPEDITIOUSLY AND SAFELY, WHICH IS THE NORMAL REMOVAL PRCOEEDINGS THAT APPLY TO MEXICAN NATIONALS EVERY DAY.” THIS IS WHAT FRUSTRATES. THINGS CAN BE FIXED, BUT SOME POLITICIANS PREFER THE ISSUE TO SOLVING A PROBLEM. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
