Former First Lady Laura Bush spent years saying nothing. Eight long years of silence through one of the most corrupt administrations the United States of America has ever had the misfortune to experience.
Then still another year through an election in which Laura was silent rather than talking up about the character of this guy that would be her husband’s predecessor.
Like her husband along with her in-laws, Laura sat silently by while Barack Obama followed through on his promises to fundamentally change America into a country that most Americans no longer understood.
When Officer Darren Wilson shot Michael Brown at the line of duty as Brown fled the scene from a robbery assaulting Wilson and riots ensued in Ferguson, Missouri over the fictitious story of “Hands up, don’t shoot” Laura was quiet.
When the events in Ferguson triggered the Black Lives Issue movement spewing racial hatred from coast to coast, blocking highways, damaging property and companies, and assaulting police officers, Laura was silent.
When Bill Clinton was accused of sexual assault as well as outright r**e contrary to other ladies, Laura was silent. During the highly controversial 2016 presidential election as Hillary’s crimes were shown in all their glory, rather than speak out against them, Laura chose to vote for Hillary, effectively supporting the criminal actions.
Today Laura is picking to talk. Now America has long last a president willing to follow through on securing American borders and actively working to fix America’s broken immigration policies, Laura has found her voice and is utilizing it condemn these policies. Policies that lots of Americans overwhelmingly support.
Based on Numbers USA, the graph below reflects how midterm voters across the board might like to see a significant Decrease in illegal aliens flooding America’s borders:
Her op-ed says in part –“On Sunday, a day we as a country set aside to honor dads and the bonds of family, I was one of the millions of Americans who watched pictures of kids who have been torn from their parents. In the six months between April 19 and May 31, the Department of Homeland Security has sent nearly 2,000 kids to mass detention facilities or foster care.
More than 100 of those children are more than 4 years old. The main reason for these separations is a zero-tolerance coverage for their parents, that are accused of illegally crossing our borders.
That I reside in a border country. I value the need to apply and safeguard our international boundaries, yet this zero-tolerance coverage is cruel. It’s immoral. And it breaks my heart.
Our government should not be in the company of warehousing children in converted box shops or creating plans to place them in tent cities in the desert out El Paso.
These images are eerily reminiscent of the Japanese American internment camps of World War II, now considered to have been among the most shameful episodes in U.S. history. We also understand that this treatment inflicts trauma; interned Japanese happen to be twice as likely to suffer cardiovascular disease or d*e prematurely than those who were not interned.”
I guess I missed the part where all of the surprising laws concerning illegal immigration no longer implemented. Especially considering President Trump is simply obeying a law that’s been in place in 2002 during her husband’s own administration from the DHS Security Act of 2002 since Paula Wood so eloquently reminds her through Twitter.
Odd considering they had been in cages back in 2014. Rather than the bedrooms with televisions, video games and teachers who are with them today.
This law was set since 2002 Trump is simply obeying the law. There are no fences, cages, or tent towns. My son works in this field, therefore I know. Here is your research on the law. https://www.dhs.gov/homeland-security-act-2002 …
Was Laura out of the nation when her husband’s personal production — the Department of Homeland Security was criticized at a 2005 report from the House Appropriations Committee for separating illegal alien children in their parents? In the report –“as young as nursing infants, are being separated from their parents and put in shelters.”
And then from MigrationPolicy.org –“Operation Streamline, launched in 2005 by the George W. Bush administration in Texas’ Del Rio border industry, aimed to boost immigration prosecutions in reaction to an uptick in non-Mexican border crossers.
Year over year statistics shows that this amount increased by 79% from 2005 to 2006. This growth was directly attributed to the actions of Michael Chertoff, the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, which conducts the Immigration and Customs Enforcement division.
In 2005, Chertoff declared the end of”catch-and-release” -the longstanding custom of allowing immigrants caught without legal documents to stay free inside the country while they waited patiently to an appearance in court.
Since illegal aliens were not tracked in any way, the speed of no-shows for court had been high. Predictably the New Yorker reports of the way this practice increased anti-immigration sentiments.
Just like the implementation of the policy, when authorities detentions began to rise and also scale post-9/11 the private prison for gain system eagerly offered up their beds, revitalizing the business.
It seems Laura’s hypocrisy knows no boundaries.m into the Justice Department’s correctional system, separate from ICE detention–the Trump administration may bypass the constraints of their family detention program, which now has the ability to hold only 2,700 individuals at one time.”
