Democrats unhappy with Trump’s executive order

Fox & Trends with Carley Shimkus.

According to the challenging for the day, the President of Trump at the end of the separation of illegal immigrant families on the border, Democrats responded to his executive order to stop the practice, only with the new legal tools — drawing of GOP accusations that they are more interested in the issue as a political cudgel.

The President, rarely one to back down from a fight, under the order Wednesday to stay the children-with the parents, caught signed you cross the border illegally. The relocation of the national outrage over the impact of the justice Department followed the “zero-tolerance” policy relates to all border violators for law enforcement. The children were separated by a 1997 order and the related decisions, the forbidden, in detention with adults over a long period of time.

For a solid week, was provided to the administration in the pillory, Democrats, journalists, activists, and even members of his own party.

Trump is trying to facilitate, to the indignation of his order. But, keen to show his base that he is not softening on immigration either, he vowed to continue the “zero-tolerance” approach, calling on Congress to find a lasting correction.

Democrats were not thrilled. Within minutes from Trump, the oversized signature is displayed, the cameras turned their focus to the “indefinite detention of families.”

“This Executive Order fix is not out of the crisis. For an indefinite time for the detention of children with their families in camps and people, is unworthy and not us for sure,” Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., said.

This Executive Order fix is not out of the crisis. For an indefinite time for the detention of children with their families in camps is inhumane and not that we may be sure that.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., tweeted: “This is not over.”

“The separation of children is not acceptable – but open-ended detention of families is cruel & inhumane,” she said.

It’s not over yet. Thousands of children have been torn, to reunite their parents with no plan. And now, @realdonaldtrump wants to store to create a new internment for families. Separation of children is not acceptable – but open-ended detention of families is cruel & inhumane.

Sen Dianne Feinstein, said that such a detention is “extremely troubling” and the order was to eliminate “the next step in the Trump administration’s larger agenda, the basic protection for asylum-seekers.”

It is extremely troubling that the President would be required by the executive order, the immigrant families with children in detention for an indefinite period of time. The contract appears to eliminate the next step in the Trump administration’s larger agenda, the basic protection for asylum-seekers.

“Let us be clear that the executive order, which he issued together goes nowhere, nowhere, nowhere, so far as it should go,” sen Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said in the Senate, before the echo of the concerns about the detention of families.

“Is this better, as they separated from their parents? I think,” Sanders shrugged. “But really, does anyone think that we should have detention for an indefinite period of time, little children?”

The Republicans counter that families detained actually for an indefinite period of time and go through the process. Further, you cited the Democratic shrug-off as evidence that they tried to keep the theme hot for the November mid-term elections.

“Although the President is the separation of the family decided to issue on a temporary basis, you condemn him for it,” Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said on “Fox & Friends”. “I don’t think you have no interest in constructive cooperation with us, but in the 2018 midterm elections.”

“The ink is not argued even once dry on the new executive order at the end of the separation of politics and some of the Democrats already, and not keeping families together is enough,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., tweeted. “Now, you want them & their parents published after the unlawful entry, knowing that a high % will never appear for the hearing.”

He also called claims that the United States would be the arrest of the children of immigrants for an indefinite period of time “is patently false.”

Trump also responded to the outrage, the calls for Democratic leaders to the table to come and a “real deal.”

The border was a big mess and a problem for many years. To do eventually, Schumer, and Pelosi, the weak are forced to crime and border protection,,, a real deal, so easy, that solves this problem. Schumer earlier border guards he wanted to take now a crime!

“Schumer used to border security — now, he’ll tweeted crime,” Trump, while highlighting past Democratic tough talk on immigration.

Don’t worry, the Republicans and their President will fix it!

The democratic outrage after the executive order was also of the allies in the liberal media and activist groups.

“Yay, no more baby internment camp,” said Samantha Bee, the host of “Full Frontal.” “Just a regular internment camps. Cool, that’s what we call a win in 2018!”

“Mom and I are in the prisons are not the solution,” she said, before urging her audience to “keep fighting.”

Democrats also expressed concerns about the more than 2,000 children separated before the executive order came into force, and whether they would be reunited with their families. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, called a “relief”, but said that he hopes that the children are reunited quickly.

Customs and Border Protection, said in a statement: “For those children who are still in Border Patrol custody, we are of a reunion with the parents or guardians returned to Border Patrol custody following law enforcement.”

The call for family reunification, a cross-party issue in the last days, and the administration can pressure and face cross-party, to ensure that the children are brought into care, with their parents.

But Republicans bristle at suggestions that the families should be simply dismissed. Meanwhile, the protesters, the executive order signals would do little to calm tensions in the streets.

In Portland, ICE offices were to remain closed on Thursday due to left-wing protesters to the area outside the offices occupy.

In New York, protesters flocked to the La Guardia airport, according to reports in social media that the children could be separated for arrival flights. An American Airlines spokesman told The New York Times that a flight was delayed, from Texas to the airline was not insured, that a group of seven young teenagers separated in age by their parents.


Left-wing activists and journalists have officials repeated for the persecution of the government. On Wednesday, it was reported that one of the socialist protesters, harassed by Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a restaurant, was a justice employees.

“If children do not eat in peace, you do not cry listen to eat in peace,” one protester was too.
