Sarah Sanders Slaps Back Hard At Former First Lady – ‘Your Husband Signed The Law’

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been having a difficult time with the press recently. Immigration has been a hot-button issue and journalists and reporters alike have been going to the communications department in the White House looking for answers regarding what is happening. Recently, a press briefing devolved into a conversation and questions in reference to former First Lady Laura Bush’s article she wrote for The Washington Post which she wrote on immigration. However, Sanders had a response that some might not like.

Western Journal reported,

“The complicated legal entanglements regarding illegal immigrants who get caught trying to bring their children to the United States have been reduced, more or less, to two separate sets of opinions: either separating children from their mothers while their cases are adjudicated is a human rights violation like never before or we should enforce the law until the problems with it are fixed by Congress. Part of the great irony with the first argument is that many of the luminaries speaking out against enforcing what they see as unjust laws are associated with the individuals who passed the laws in the first place. One of these individuals is Laura Bush, who penned a much-ballyhooed op-ed in The Washington Post in which she decried the Trump administration’s immigration policies.

“On Sunday, a day we as a nation set aside to honor fathers and the bonds of family, I was among the millions of Americans who watched images of children who have been torn from their parents,” Bush wrote in the piece published Sunday night. “In the six weeks between April 19 and May 31, the Department of Homeland Security has sent nearly 2,000 children to mass detention centers or foster care. More than 100 of these children are younger than 4 years old. The reason for these separations is a zero-tolerance policy for their parents, who are accused of illegally crossing our borders. “I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.”

If it breaks her heart, perhaps she should have been blaming her husband. Late in his second term, former President George W. Bush signed a law that was likely well-intentioned but has added to the problems faced by the Trump administration in enforcing their “zero tolerance” policy without separating parents and children. On Monday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders noted this during her news briefing. “Frankly, this law was actually signed into effect in 2008 under (Laura Bush’s) husband’s leadership, not under this administration,” Sanders said, according to The Hill. “We’re not the ones responsible for creating this problem. We’ve inherited it,” she added. “But we’re actually the first administration stepping up and trying to fix it.”

The law she was referring to, assumedly, was the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, which requires formal deportation hearings for child immigrants who aren’t from Mexico or Canada and don’t have family in the United States. The intention was that it would stop child sex trafficking, but one of the unintended problems has come now that family units from Central American countries besides Mexico are making up the bulk of new illegal immigrants. In most cases, as The New York Times noted in one story about a Guatemalan woman who was repatriated to her country of origin without her child, most first-time illegal immigrants who don’t seek asylum plead out their case in an expedited manner and are sentenced to time served, then deported.

However, due to federal law, children can’t go through expedited hearings, instead of requiring formal deportation hearings. Thus, while the parent might be repatriated to their home country, the child remains back until their case works their way through clogged courts. This is just one of a maze of laws and court rulings, some of which are meant to do good but all of which have made it more difficult to actually enforce the law and secure our border. There are obviously ways to fix this without jeopardizing border security and ensuring that parents aren’t separated from their children for elongated periods of time. Still, those who bear some responsibility for the maze shouldn’t pretend that this is all on Trump. This is the result of an agglomeration of bad legislation and an unwillingness to touch illegal immigration. Instead of lamenting it in high-profile op-eds, perhaps they ought to be writing about how to fix it beyond just blaming the president and demanding he stop enforcing the law.”

Bush is not the only First Lady to come out against the zero tolerance immigration policy. All of the living former first ladies have spoken out against the policy regarding illegal border crossing that has resulted in family separation. Even former First Lady Rosalynn Carter made a statement, something she rarely ever does. She called the policy disgraceful and shameful and called upon her experience working in Cambodia and Thailand as well as her work with the Carter Center.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama shared Bush’s article on social media. Additionally, former First Lady Hillary Clinton condemned the policy at a Women’s Forum of New York awards lunch. She alleged that the separation policy is not mandated by law. The current first lady, First Lady Melania Trump has also encouraged Congressional Democrats and Republicans to work together to come to a conclusion to this immigration issue. She released a statement where she indicated she hated this policy and believes bipartisan lawmakers need to work together to achieve a successful and efficient solution.

Share if you agree with Sanders.

Share if you think people need to stop blaming the president.

Share if you believe that these immigration issues need to be fixed by Congress.

Michelle Just Got Deep Under Trump’s Skin – He Stops Everything And Fires Back

Published

* By

It is refreshing to have a President that is not afraid to speak the truth. Everything he says about the Obama’s is correct.

Everything Barack Obama did in 8 years..is unforgivable.

From NY Post:

President Trump on Friday fired back against former first lady Michelle Obama’s criticism of him in her new memoir — by going after her hubby, his predecessor.

“She got paid a lot of money to write a book and they always expect a little controversy,” Trump told reporters outside the White House, just before departing for Paris.

“I’ll give you a little controversy back. I’ll never forgive [former President Barack Obama] for what he did to our US military by not funding it properly. It was depleted, it was old and tired, and I had to come in and fix it.”

He added, “What he did to our military made this country very unsafe for you and you and you.”

Trump’s comments were in response to Michelle Obama’s new memoir, “Becoming,” which hits shelves Tuesday, in which she writes that she’ll “never forgive” the billionaire for fueling a claim that Barack Obama wasn’t born in the US. In reality, he was born in Hawaii.

“What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls?” the mother of two wrote in the book, according to ABC News. “Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this, I’d never forgive him.”

Immigrant Actress Says She’ll Leave The U.S. And Not Just Because She Hates Trump

Published

Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron has been a citizen of our great nation for more than a decade, after leaving South Africa for a better life in America. Now, she’s wanting out and nobody is stopping her, but she wants everyone to know why she’s leaving and others should high tail it out of here too. Theron has identified what she feels is an imminent threat to humanity in this country and is more than just President Donald Trump, who she’s definitely not a fan of.

The successful actress has enjoyed all the perks of being an American citizen including an incredible career. More important than her acting chops are her two black children she’s adopted. She doesn’t feel that they are safe here in the U.S. and is at least talking about leaving, but like all other anti-Trump celebs, she probably won’t make good on her announcement and actually leave. She just likes the attention of complaining about this country, this time citing a new reason.

American News Central reports:

Charlize Theron was born in South Africa during the time of apartheid. She knows what racism is like.

Theron gained American citizenship just over a decade ago, however, she’s not that proud of her country or her president.

According to Charlize, she’s considering leaving the United States because it’s just too dang racist. Her two adopted black kids shouldn’t have to live in such an evil country!

She said this during an interview with far-left nutball Chelsea Handler.

From Downtrend:

When Charlize Theron isn’t making really dumb statement about gun control she apparently passes the time by making really dumb statements about race. The whitest person you’ve ever seen says there are parts of America that are so racist that she won’t go there and worries that this racism may drive her from the country entirely. It should be noted that she is from South Africa where white people are killed for the color of their skin and white farmers are driven from their land by angry blacks.

Theron sat down with her drunken leftist friend and equal foe of Trump’s as she is, to commiserate over how awful they feel that America has become. This “safe space” interview is rich with leftist insanity.

Chelsea Handler: You’re raising two children of color. Obviously, coming from South Africa, you know a lot about racial inequality, but what are your thoughts on Black Lives Matter and our current climate?

Charlize Theron: Being raised during the apartheid era in South Africa made me so hyperaware of equality and human rights. Of course, I have two black kids, but that was always something I was passionate about. I don’t even know how to talk about the last year under our new administration. But racism is much more alive and well than people thought. We can’t deny it anymore. We have to be vocal. There are places in this country where, if I got a job, I wouldn’t take it. I wouldn’t travel with my kids to some parts of America, and that’s really problematic. There are a lot of times when I look at my kids and I’m like, If this continues, I might have to [leave America]. Because the last thing I want is for my children to feel unsafe.

Theron’s children are among the most privileged kids in America guarded by people protecting them and likely a security wall or fence around their home. Her children are not in any danger with Trump as the president who has done nothing to make the country more racist with him in office. The only people perpetuating racism in America are liberals like her who are lying to their children and telling them that America is a racist place. Instilling fear in little ones like this is what’s really unsafe.

If Theron wants to fix a racism issue, she should look at her home country and start there. That’s where it really is dangerous, but she will just stay right here in America where it’s safe and complain about Trump for attention.
