ICE Director Serves Up The Truth To Lying Dems
by: TTN Staff
The situation at the border is not a tenable one. Children are being separated from their parents as asylum proceedings take place. This has the left up in arms.
Despite Barack Obama enforcing this same law throughout his presidency. It is just politically expedient for them to care about the situation at the border now. The fact of the matter is, the immigrants who seek asylum lawfully are not arrested or separated from their families. Only people caught illegally entering the United States are separated pending adjudication.

According to Town Hall:
Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan echoed DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in slamming the media and politicians who are “intentionally misleading the American people” on the immigration crisis at the border.
Homan said the vast majority of asylum claims brought before immigration court judges have been deemed “frivolous.”
“What no one is talking about is the underlying reason for this whole argument—are these families really escaping fear and persecution? The immigration court has said in the last year and a half over 80 percent of these claims are frivolous,” he told Carlson. “So we have to attack the very foundation they’re arguing these people are coming to the country. These parents themselves are using these children as pawns to gain entry to the United States.”
“They are choosing to enter between the ports of entry, they know they will be separated but they want to blame the government when we are forced to do that. So let’s put the blame where it lies, not on the fine men and women of Border Patrol and ICE, we’re enforcing the law.”
Families are separated every day in this country when one or both parents are arrested for an accused crime. The Democrats are faking their sincerity and it must stop along with the illegal crossing that is placing such a burden on this county.
