Chukie Schumer just dropped the pretense of caring about “the children”:
Senator Chuck Schumer just proved that he’s using illegal-immigrant children as pawns to score political points rather than actually solve the longstanding border crisis.
On Tuesday, Schumer dismissed proposed GOP legislation that would keep illegal-alien families together at the border, suggesting he basically wants President Trump to allow wholesale amnesty via an executive order.
“There are so many obstacles to legislation and when the president can do it with his own pen, it makes no sense,” Schumer told reporters. “Legislation is not the way to go here. Unacceptable additions have bogged down every piece of legislation we’ve done.”
Schumer and Democrats don’t want to negotiate to fix the border crisis and keep illegal-alien “families” together, preferring instead to use the migrant children as hostages in order to get amnesty for illegal immigrants.
Schumer’s rejection of proposed GOP legislation confirms speculation that the Democrats are using the border crisis — which they blithely ignored during Obama’s 8-year presidency — to foment manufactured outrage in order to attack President Trump.
Senator Schumer wants to keep the focus and the pressure on Trump instead of doing his job as a legislator by passing bipartisan laws to fix the problem.
It’s all a game. Dems and their media tools exploit “the children” for their agenda.:
The mother of the crying child featured on the cover of TIME Magazine was previously deported from the United States in 2013, according to ICE.
TIME Magazine pasted the image of the young girl crying as President Donald Trump looked down on her, attempting to symbolize the administration’s zero-tolerance immigration policy at the border that leads to family separations.
The father of the child later revealed that the girl was never separated from the mother and that the child was only briefly set down so that border patrol agents could perform a pat down. The mother also left three other children behind in Honduras. (RELATED: Crying Honduran Child Who Became The Face Of Border Family Separation Was Never Separated From Family)
As more information comes out about the situation of Sandra Sanchez and her 2-year-old daughter, ICE confirmed on Friday that Sanchez was previously deported in 2013.
“ICE said Sanchez was previously deported to Honduras in July 2013,” The Washington Post reported.
While illegally crossing the border is a misdemeanor, illegal reentry is a felony.
The leftwing propagandists are getting sloppy.
The illegal alien children are being detained by law.
Guess who voted yes? Diane Feinstein, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Chuck Schumer, and (RINO) John McCain.
Obama’s record of dealing with illegals was an abject horror. He refused to remove convicted criminals, in ICE custody, who had been ordered deported but were instead released back into U.S. communities, and then went on to murder Americans.
Obama released thousands of illegal aliens into the streets with felony records including theft, sexual assault, kidnapping and homicide. The borders leaked like a sieve and nothing was done to stop illegals or the flow of security risks like ISIS, Al Qaeda, and gawd knows how many others who have escaped capture and detection. The DHS admits that they’ve lost track of how many security risks have crossed the border.
This is some of the detention of children that happened under Obama:
Video footage surfaces from 2014 showing that under Obama, family separations and holding centers were EXACTLY the same.
The media said absolutely nothing then, but are ramping up the propganda now because the midterms are fast approaching.

From The Daily Wire:
Obama Kept More Than Double The Number Of Children In Detention Centers Than Trump White House. Newsweek reports:
“Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Administration for Children and Families spokesperson Kenneth Wolfe told Newsweek on Wednesday that it had as many as 10,852 undocumented children in its custody—a significant jump from the 8,886 that were in the agency’s custody on April 29, according to the Washington Post.
In fiscal year 2013, under the Barack Obama administration, the HHS Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) had as many as 25,000 unaccompanied children in its care across 80 shelters, according to a July 2014 article in Mother Jones.”
The revelation that illegal alien children were being kept in cages came to light in 2014 when Breitbart Texas’ Brandon Darby broke the story. On Sunday, Darby tweeted out a thread of 39 photos that he reported on in 2014 that showed the conditions that the children were subjected to:
