A COLLISION OF POLICY AND POLITICS – FOX and Friends
GUEST: Hogan Gidley, WH Press Secretary – Special Assistant to POTUS
DEMOCRATS ARE SAYING ABOUT ILLEGALS WHO BROKE INTO OUR COUNTRY:
-YOU CAN’T DEPORT THEM
-YOU CANT’ DETAIN THEM
-YOU CAN’T PROSECUTE THEM
-THE ONLY THING YOU CAN DO IS TO RELEASE THEM INTO THE INTERIOR WITHOUT ANY RAMIFICATION ABOUT WHAT THEY HAVE DONE BY BREAKING OUR LAWS.
-The law says (INSTITUTED way before President Trump) that they have to break up the family of parents who committed the crime of breaking our border laws.
-Democrat policies put drug cartels into business by sending in people into this country carrying drugs and international child smuggling because democrats create incentives by not closing the loopholes.
-the situation at the border is a crisis
-President Trump put out a 70-point immigration plan (9 months ago) to cure all immigration woes on immigration. Democrats laughed at it. They had the Schumer shut down.
-Democrats are playing politics with people’s lives
-republicans are united in immigration policy to stop child smuggling. Democrats don’t want it
-you can’t just take the family, put it back together and send them back to their country to come back legally. The law says the parents stay in jail and the children can’t be sent back under our present laws.
-permanent separation is an abomination
-but no one is speaking about the American citizen who gets killed by someone who is here illegally.
-a wall will force immigrants to come to the U.S. through our ports of entry.
-Republicans are trying to come to the table to get this done to close the loopholes.
-international smuggling rings tell these illegals how to claim credible fear asking for asylum. Smuggling rings tell them what to say exactly.
-There is a lot of blame flying around about the lock ups. But the Republicans want this fixed. They put forth a bipartisan plan (Trump)
