President Donald Trump speaks during an event on tax policy in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, D.C., on April 12, 2018.

The White House continued to insist Monday that Democrats are to blame for the administration's forced separation of migrant children from their families at the southern U.S. border, as opposition to the policy continued to build, including among some Republicans.

Another of the lies he has used. It is the policy of being a hardline on the subject that has all this happening.

"Trump blamed Democrats for the current state of affairs and urged them to agree to broader legislation on immigration that includes border-wall funding and other White House priorities." And we see why we have this crisis. Trump is using children as bargaining chips for his border wall funding. He falsely accused Democrats the last time when he used Dreamers as bargaining chips for funding and now he's using children.
I suspected this would be the case, knowing the depravity levels this president would go to for his own selfish priorities, but was waiting for someone to publicly admit it. He can blame Democrats all day, but many have already proven it is a lie. What made this even more idiotic is how Trump freaks like moz bought into it hook, line, and sinker. I can't wait for their next line of lunacy to be that if we want the children reunited, then fund the wall.

The power of ignorant white people in government. Sessions, Neilson,Trump cannot construe any concept of helping another human that wants to better their life situation. Sad. As a nation we can do better, and we shall. This ugly chapter of American progress to “ form a more perfect Union” will be referenced in history as the example how derelict and deplorable arrogance damages American status as the beacon of hope, at home and to the world. Vote these people out.

Trump’s lies and tactics are getting more outrageous every day.

I was raised and taught -- as probably most of us were -- that the end does not justify the means. Trump obviously was not raised that way. His end game apparently justifies anything.

"Tough action is needed to fight illegal immigration, President Donald Trump declared"
Separating families and caging children isn't tough action, it is morally bereft evil.
"Trump's comments came as images of children held in fenced cages fueled a growing chorus of condemnation from both political parties, four former first ladies and national evangelical leaders."
But, not from his base. You will see some of them on this thread today, I'm betting. Watch them try to justify permanently damaging innocent children in the pursuit of a political agenda.
"It is the Democrats' fault for being weak and ineffective with Boarder [sic] Security and Crime," said Trump.
I see he has reached the "I don't want to hit the children, you make me hit the children when you don't do as I want" chapter in the handbook for abusive husbands.
"We want to fix the whole thing," she said. "We don't want to tinker with just part of it." Read: "We have no moral hesitation to separate families unnecessarily, cage children, and hold them hostage to promote our political agenda." Jesus. These people would use kids as human shields if it would get them a brick for their medieval wall.
"We do not want to separate parents from their children," he [Sessions] said." Of course you want to. If you didn't want to, you wouldn't do it. It is a policy your team originated with malice aforethought. Your team has admitted it was done as a deliberately chosen deterrent.
One can only hope that there are enough mothers, moderates, and people with a conscience who will punish Trump and his enablers in the mid-terms for their barbarity.

Humpty Trumpty sat on a wall
He cracked down on children
He had a great fall
He grabbed our attention with his superlative splat
And all Humpty's horses and all Trumpty's men
Said Trumpty can't get any lower than that
And thinking of children instead of their king
They wouldn't put Humpty together again

Y'know, "progs", I think you're onto a winning issue for the mid-terms. I can't think of anything the American people want more than children grouped in with a bunch of criminals in a detention center.
Hammer it home, "progs", all the way to November. You can't possibly lose!

Hillary Clinton is very concerned about what’s happening on the southern border, and despite not being a candidate for anything (yet), she wants Americans to give her money to do something about it.

The failed Democratic candidate for president sent a fundraising email this afternoon to supporters, asking them to donate to her organization so it can exploit the “humanitarian crisis” she says is being created by “Trump’s immigration policies.”

She writes:

"What’s happening to families at the border right now is horrific: Nursing infants ripped away from their mothers. Parents told their toddlers are being taken to bathe or play, only to realize hours later that they aren’t coming back. Children incarcerated in warehouses and, according to more than one account, kept in cages. This is a moral and humanitarian crisis. Everyone of us who has ever held a child in their arms, and every human being with a sense of compassion and decency should be outraged".
Those pictures of kids in cages were taken in 2014, y'know, during the Obamanation.
