THERE IS SO MUCH MISINFORMATION OUT THERE ABOUT THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S NEW “ZERO TOLERANCE” POLICY OF SEPARATING PARENTS AND CHILDREN AT THE BORDER” - MYTH:
This is not a new policy and was practiced under Obama and Clinton - FALSE. The policy to separate parents and children is new and was instituted on 4/6/2018. It was the brainchild of John Kelly to serve as a deterrent for undocumented immigration, approved by Trump, and adopted by Sessions. Prior administrations detained migrant families but didn’t have a practice of forcibly separating parents from their children unless the adults were deemed unfit. MYTH: This is the only way to deter undocumented immigration - FALSE. Annual trends show that undocumented immigration is at a 46 year low. We do NOT have people rushing to cross our border. What we have are people crossing the border illegally because they've already been hired by a US company, or because they are seeking political asylum. Economic migrants come to this country because our country has kept the demand going. But again, most of these people are not economic migrants, they are asylum-seekers. MYTH: Most of the people coming across the border are just trying to take advantage of our country by taking our jobs - FALSE. Most of the parents who have been impacted by Trump's "zero tolerance" policy have presented themselves as political asylum-seekers at a U.S. port-of-entry, from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. Rather than processing their claims, they have been taken into custody on the spot and had their children ripped from their arms. The ACLU alleges that this practice violates the Asylum Act, and the UN asserts that it violates the UN Treaty on the State of Refugees, one of the few treaties the US has ratified. This is an illegal act on the part of the United States government, not to mention morally and ethically reprehensible. MYTH: We're a country that respects the Rule of Law, and if people break the law, this is what they get -
FALSE. We are a country that has an above-ground system of immigration and an underground system. Our government (under both parties) has always been aware that US companies recruit workers in the poorest parts of Mexico for cheap labor, and ICE (and its predecessor INS) has looked the other way because this underground economy benefits our country to the tune of billions of dollars annually. Thus, even though the majority of people crossing the border now are asylum-seekers, those who are economic migrants (migrant workers) likely have been recruited here to do jobs Americans will not do. MYTH: The children have to be separated from their parents because their parents must be arrested and it would be cruel to put children in jail with their parents - FALSE. Seeking asylum is not against the law. Also, with regard to economic migrants, crossing the border without documentation is a misdemeanor not requiring an arrest. Additionally, parents have been detained with their children in ICE "family residential centers" for years. The Trump administration's shift in policy is for political purposes only, not legal ones. MYTH: We have rampant fraud in our asylum process the proof of which is the significant increase we have in the number of people applying for asylum. FALSE. The increase in asylum seekers is a direct result of the increase in civil conflict and violence across the globe. While some people may believe that we shouldn't allow any refugees into our country because "it's not our problem," neither our current asylum law nor our ideological foundation as a country support such an isolationist approach. There is very little evidence to support Sessions' claim that abuse of our asylum-seeking policies is rampant. Also, what Sessions failed to mention is that the majority of asylum seekers are from China, not South of the border. MYTH: This policy is legal. FALSE. The ACLU filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration on 5/6, and a recent court ruling denied the government's motion to dismiss the suit. The judge deciding the case stated that the Trump Administration policy is "brutal, offensive, and fails to comport with traditional notions of fair play and decency." The case is moving forward because it was deemed to have legal merit.
She is doing the right thing to keep America from being infested with crime. Must be nice not to have work on a weekday.
Jesus said "woe to those who hurt my young ones (children), I guess these people were too busy reading "Mein Kampf" to have time to pick up a BIble and learn how to be an authentic human being. I can't even express how disgusted and embarrased these crazy a-holes are making most of us feel, ashamed to be citizens of this oligarchy. Check the constitution and the bill of rights, there are statements there than may apply...
Beyond words !! the people promoting this,work for the deep state "Soros" look him up he wants a one world government and to decrease the population ! that's how much he cares about the children !!
nielsen lied,she should resign
I don't condone protesting at the homes of government employees. Doing so is unfair to the family of the employee.
This is absolutely perfect. Absolutely what Americans who care need to be doing. Make their lives as miserable as they are making ours. Let them know we WILL NOT CONTINUE to take their crap. Their morals and ethics are beyond questionable.
Ryan William, do not be complicit in Trump's crimes. Humans do not "infest" a country and shame on you for using the Nazi term. Not everyone works Monday - Friday 9 -5. I'm retired but I worked shift work and so do many career people.
She is just following orders and where have we heard that line before? At the Nuremberg Trials in 1945 and 1946.
I love these protesters, they represent the real United States 💞💞💞👏👏👏👏
Send her to The Hague to be brought up on charges of crimes against humanity!
Thank you protesters! You are our HEROES!
No justice, no peace
This is so, so hard to listen to. Wonder how the guards in these facilities can bear to listen? Are they so callous that they can't hear?
Peaceful protest _ YES YES YES
Such good news. Take the protest directly to Pennsylvania Avenue, to the V.P. and A.J. Session's homes, wherever they go, follow them, blast the cries until the sound cannot be hidden.
She is an Evil human.
Rita Watson Muehlman kidnapping kids away from their mom's and dad's is unfair to this family so who cares about government families
Shouldn't cross the border illegaly and this would not happen. Its a risk they take and has been going on for years.
She owns this bullshit,her and that Thing she's married to!
She's going to have to move to a secure cage at the former Walmart.
Thank you and God Bless
Good, now go to the Fox News homes and let them hear the children's cries.
Protesters gathered outside the home of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Friday morning, playing audio of crying migrant children who have been separated from their parents after crossi...
She'll put earplugs in. The sünderkommandos in Auschwitz got used to hearing the screams of the People Being gassed.
FIRE HER SHE NEEDS TO resign from her post she no longer cares about America she wants to lock up the children if you're Mexican or if you're another immigrant bottom line he's a white supremacist that are against are immigrants this country was founded on immigrants I don't understand what's going on with this Administration but they're cutting everything Healthcare Medical Care food stamps children nutrition seniors nutrition programs and this is helping America some way of helping America
Never forget this is the woman responsible for deaths after Katrina for not responding to the pleas for help. How can anyone be surprised at this crisis?
Now go to Ann Coulter's house.
Excellent!! Get in her face. Make her life uncomfortable.
She deserves anything the protesters throw at her.
She is heartless and mean as hell.
I don't like this woman or her boss. But I don't like this behavior either. Harass her at work or in public places. But leave her neighbor out of this.
Another feckless blonde. Get in line with Ivanka®, Kelly Ann, Betsy and Ann Coulter.
Handpicked by DJT to do his bidding. THAT doesn't say much that's positive about her.
Interrupt everything and everywhere she goes!
Resignation and prosecuted, then jail !!
I hope they played it LOUD and all night. THese people need to have a taste of what they are doing to others. Boo Hoo poor little Kirstjen isn't happy. There is no place in our country for these sub-human misfits.
I'M AFRAID KRISTJEN IS MORE AFRAID OF THE DONALD AND LOSING HER JOB THAN DOING HER JOB..---- SHE MAY HAVE JUSTt BRANDED HERSELF FOR LIFE AS ONE OF THE DONALD'S CHILD STEALING WHORES.---TRY LIVING WITH THAT ONE WHEN THE DONALD IS NO LONGER AROUND.
Although her resignation won't change the evil being done. Abolishing the Heimat Sicherheitsdienst would be a good start, though.
My last name is nielsen. Danish and my great aunt worked in the Danish underground movement against the Nazis . That woman shames all of us. Kjirsten don’t even think of coming back home. YOU ARE DEAD TO US.
God I wish I could have been there. And then they should go to Ann coulter's house and set up a summer camp in her front yard complete with mylar blankets and cages oh no no fenced walls
Too bad there is no video so she could see as well as hear them. Her father must be so proud.
She has a look as if she smelled shit that's just her soul that she smells
This allows her to understand the results of her actions. What she does next is up to her.
Truth be told she was probably inside masturbating to the sound.
Good you need more people and bull horns
How can I go about participating in similar direct-action protests? Any info greatly appreciated. I did visit the website and signed a petition but can't find any info on upcoming protest actions. Thank you.
String them all up in the rose garden! 🤡💩🤡💩🔥🔥⚰️
Being a Gestapo Queen has consequences.
Hope she hears it in her dreams for the rest of her life.
