Laura Ingraham stated the media keeps attempting to blame President Trump for producing a crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, but "troublesome realities" are emerging to undermine that story.
Obama prosecuted mothers for pertaining to the United States unlawfully. He fast tracked deportations. And yes, he housed unaccompanied kids in tent cities.For much of the nation-- and President Donald Trump-- the prevailing belief is that Obama was the president who went easier on immigrants.Neither Obama nor Democrats created Trump's zero-tolerance policy,
which calls for every prohibited border crosser to be prosecuted and causes their children being apprehended in different centers before being shipped to a shelter and eventually a sponsor family.But Obama's policy assisted produce the roadway map of enforcement that Trump has actually been following-- and developing on.Ingraham stated Trump is trying to repair issues that have festered for several years due to previous administrations and Congress failing
to act. She asked Art Del Cueto, president of the Border Patrol Union in Tucson, Arizona, about the"misstatements "about the situation at the
border and the attacks on U.S. Border Patrol agents.He described the true nature of the journey of minors from Guatemala, Honduras and other Central American countries, describing that border agents enter into the field with toys, clothing and food -acquired with their own loan-to aim to help the kids they find.Del Cueto said girls are often found with contraception in case they are raped on the difficult journey."It's sickening that particular members of the media have opted to attack
our president ... and Border Patrol representatives and describe us as Nazis. It's revolting that you would even believe that, I don't know
where that even comes from," he said. "You can spin it any method you want, but the truth is I am out there all the time, I work that border and I'm telling you things are being done properly."
