Kirsters Baish| The mainstream media has made their stance very clear. They are against President Donald Trump and have dubbed him “inhumane” for separating illegal immigrant families at the border.
Conservative Tribune reports:
People across Twitter have picked up on the claims, and Peter Fonda even called for people to “rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage” so that Melania Trump will “stand up” to her husband.
So, it’s not okay for children who are not citizens of this country to be taken from their parents who have broken the law, but it’s totally okay to kidnap the president’s son and put him in a cage? Sounds a little hypocritical to me.
But CNN quickly ran into a roadblock when they tried to get a border patrol agent to admit that the conditions the kids were being kept in at the border were horrific.
CNN’s Brooke Baldwin conducted an interview with a spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council, Chris Cabrera, this Tuesday. She tried to press him by claiming that “these children being ripped from their parents,” as per The Daily Caller.
Cabrera answered, “I understand where you’re coming from. I don’t think everybody understands what is actually happening down here. You have a lot of these kids that are coming here and put through terrible, terrible situations by their parents. They are brought over in extremely dangerous conditions and extremely dangerous terrain.”
He continued, “All this could be avoided if they just go through the port of entry. There would be no crime committed by them and they wouldn’t get separated. Why they don’t do this is beyond me, but this problem is very easily solved, at least on the short-term basis, by going through the port of entry. If they choose to go through the (Rio Grande) river, they’re committing a crime just like anyone else and they’re subject to arrest. And we know when you get arrested, you don’t get to stay with your family.”
The CNN host desperately tried to make it seem like the illegal immigrants are the victims, but Cabrera was clear that for these people to cross the Rio Grande is totally illegal… not just for immigrants, but for United States citizens as well.
Then, Baldwin questioned Cabrera on delays on those immigrants seeking asylum in the United States and the families being sent away with an “indefinite delay.”
The National Border Patrol Council spokesman explained that this was the very problem. “We’ve had this situation going on for four years now. I don’t think you can necessarily blame it on one administration or the other. It started under one and is continuing under another. It hasn’t been fixed and it needs to be fixed,” he explained.
The CNN host tried to interrupt him, but he went on to say, “Right now we have this beacon of, ‘We’ll leave the light on for you and let you come illegally into the country.’ If you’ve seen some of the stuff we’ve seen, you’d understand how important it is to have a tough stance to divert people from coming here.”
He goes on to explain to Baldwin that these children are being subjected to this because illegals have been allowed to “take advantage of this system.”
“When you see a 12-year-old girl with a plan B pill, her parents put her on birth control because they know getting violated is part of the journey, that’s a terrible way to live. When you see a 4-year-old girl traveling alone with just her parents’ phone number written across her shirt. Something needs to be done. We had a 9-year-old boy have heat stroke in front of us and die with no family around. That’s because we’re allowing people to continue take advantage of this system.”
Take a look at the interview below:
Cabrera reminds Baldwin that Congress must change the laws in order to fix these problems.
He said, “They need to come in there, they need to get to work and they need to change this law. Until then, us as border patrol agents, we have a duty to enforce these laws and we will continue to do it until they change this law and hopefully they will.”
The CNN host answered by asking for his reassurance that the children are being treated humanely. He made her look like a total fool.
“I can tell you with absolute certainty that they are being treated humanely. Most of our agents are parents. I’ve seen guys, and I’ve done it myself, you give your last bottle of water to a kid, you’ll take a toy out of your car to give to one of these kids because you know the situation they’re in,” Cabrera remarked.
He went on, “Agents are very sympathetic. We’re human, we’re fathers, we have families. We do a lot for the communities here, whether or not a camera is involved. Our agents are very involved. And nobody saves more lives along the southwestern border than the U.S. Border patrol.”
Border patrol agents aren’t the monsters that the left makes them out to be. Trump is doing everything he can do, but Congressional Democrats continue to try and block him at every turn.
