Dating a border patrol agent list of old dating shows
If you don’t like that, then don’t smuggle children over our border.” Parents doing what any native-born American mom or dad would do in a similar situation — trying to get their kids away from places where they might starve or get shot — are branded by the Trump administration as “smugglers.” And the attitude of top administration officials on what happens to these children is shockingly callous. The growing uproar about how America mistreats these migrant kids comes at the same time that Trump speaks of migrants — possibly members of a gang called MS-13, although the president left it intentionally vague — as “animals.” This weekend, we learned that the president of the United States — who has in the past raged privately about arrivals from “shithole countries” in Africa — also brags on how he demonizes Hispanic immigrants for political gain.Trump’s chief of staff John Kelly told NPR the kids “will be put in foster care or whatever.” . “Trump reminded them the crowds loved his rhetoric on immigrants along the campaign trail,” reported the Washington Post of a recent Oval Office meeting.“Acting as if he were at a rally, he recited a few made-up Hispanic names and described potential crimes they could have committed, such as rape or murder.
The human toll of state-sanctioned hatred hits people like Estaban Pastor, another Guatemalan who came here with his 18-month-old son after he’d mortgaged his family’s tiny farm to pay for the child’s hospital bill and needed the income to pay back the loan. Border Patrol agents deported Pastor last October but wouldn’t say where his toddler was other than “somewhere in Texas.” “I cried. “No one could tell me anything.” The Chronicle says a judge eventually freed the child after a Kafkaesque three-month crusade by Pastor to find his son, now 2, and secure his release.
It was a system with a high risk for abuse — and abuses occurred.
The agency tasked with placing thousands of kids — the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement — clearly wasn’t up to the task of vetting potential sponsors.
In a normal world, the administration of our new-in-2017 President Trump would be dedicated to fixing the problems.
To the contrary, Team Trump rolled out new punitive polices at the border that would have the consequence of tossing hundreds and eventually thousands more children into this growing American gulag.
