President Trump, to his credit, is holding firm on his zero-tolerance policy for illegal migrants at the border.
That’s led the press to a considerable feeding frenzy on one of the consequences of it, the separation of migrants traveling with children (some may be parents, others may be smugglers, yet they are all billed as loving ‘families’ by the press) so that the illegally arrived adults can wait their asylum claims out in detention, and the children can wait it out in non-prison conditions. That’s brought on lots of pictures of crying children and claimed tales of missing-children outrages, as well as a ton of phony news, dutifully reported over and over. The object of course, is to weaken Trump in the wake of his successes on the economy and with North Korea, as well as end his quest for an end to open borders.
It’s also been announced that these stories are working, causing President Trump’s poll numbers to fall. Some call it ‘Trump’s Katrina.’
