Mainstream media has consistently falsely reported that the Trump administration’s official policy is to separate migrant children from their border-crossing parents. This falsehood resulted in multiple retractions from the New York Times, USA Today, the Washington Post, and the Seattle Times.
President Donald Trump’s administration will soon build a tent city near the United States-Mexico border close to El Paso, Texas, that will house hundreds of young border crossers, Breitbart reports.
The Trump administration has selected Tornillo, Texas, for the construction of tents to house the overflow of immigrant children, many of whom have been separated from their parents under a new “zero tolerance” policy, according to three sources familiar with the decision.
The Department of Health and Human Services will erect a “tent city,” full of large tents whose walls touch the ground, that is estimated to hold 450 beds for children, say the sources.
Ron Vitiello, acting deputy commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, told MSNBC on Thursday that about 1,500 immigrants are being arrested each day for crossing the border illegally. Vitiello said the policy is meant to deter families of immigrants from coming to the U.S.
“If you apply consequence to illegal activity you get less of it,” he said in defense of the policy. “They are only in these shelters long enough to be reunited with their family members. That’s the purpose of them.”
Do not buy into what mainstream media is attempting to brainwash people into believing. Blunt truth is, the massive illegal activity at our southern borders is getting worse and these illegal aliens choose to cross.
This is an extreme National Security breach and the democrats and libs should honestly be detained for their part in the illegal activity.
