Original Article

Like thousands of Central American parents seeking asylum in the United States, Patricia panicked when, after she and her son crossed the Rio Grande into Texas last year, U.S. border agents took the boy away. For weeks, she was crushed by fears that then-6-year-old Alessandro was lost forever. Though they were eventually reunited, Patricia isn’t ready to put the past behind her. She wants the U.S. government to pay for her family’s ordeal, and she has become part of a novel legal strategy to achieve that goal.

How about a $3 Million fine in the other direction for attempting to enter the country illegally?

If you commit a crime in the US and you have your kids with you, guess what? If you're apprehended, you get separated from your kids. I guess the coyotes didn't tell their, uh, clients, about that little thing. All those cases should be dismissed.

The first thing that should be done is DNA tests for all, to verify that they ARE those people's children, and not rented, borrowed or stolen like thousands of the 'asylum seekers' do.

Criminals who by definition break the law usually are separated from their children . . . and their spouses, friends, family members, neighbors, their grocery store, their favorite foods . . . they lose their freedom . . . they do time in the calaboose. So if you don't want to be treated like a criminal, don't act like one.

Then, fair is fair. If this law suit has any merit, then all the mothers who were separated from their children during Obama's reign must sue Obama too. If not, then we have another case of RACISM. It won't be right for some judge to decide it is o.k. to sue the white guy, but not o.k. to sue the mixed race guy. Fair is fair.

They can pick up their children on the other side of the border, if they can prove the kids are theirs. A lot of child trafficking going on and who knows if these kids are really the offspring of those who n\brought them.

Carl Bernstein, of Watergate fame and not much else since, had a meltdown a few weeks ago, a common occurrence from the Left since Trump has taken office. While on CNN’s Reliable Sources he called for a closer look into why people support Trump. He said, “No president in the history of the United States in 246 years has expressed the kinds of ideas and thoughts and undemocratic notions and authoritarian notions that he has. We need to start connecting these dots. What do people in the country think of this and why do they think and support him, no matter what he does,

The lyrics are as relevant today as 1970: [music video] The Dems and the media are having their daily Trump Derangement Syndrome moment because President Trump advised Mullah Ilhan Omar to take her pals Commandante Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Che Pressley, and Mullah Rashida Tlaib, members of the Whack-Job Squad, to go to whatever country they prefer to the USA, fix that country, then return to the USA.

Most racist, woman-hating, immigrant-fearing party ever, amirite? The not-so-inside talk has been whether Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's four-woman war against Nancy Pelosi would earn her a Democratic primary challenger next year, but her high-profile antics have drawn another Republican into the race to represent heavily Democratic NY14. Fox News reports that Scherie Murray, a 38-year-old New York businesswoman and Jamaica native (she emigrated as a child), has launched a campaign to unseat AOC next year.

If Democrats become the victims of a massive electoral defeat next year, it's doubtful that they will understand why. Not one of them seems to have any awareness of how ridiculous they can be. Case in point, former Vice President Joe Biden, in earnest, just said he would challenge President Trump to a push-up contest as a way to measure his own manliness. The outburst came with great assist from MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski after she asked Biden in an interview how he would “fight” Trump, given that he “lies,” “bullies,” and “doesn’t play fair.”

Is a remark like that, universally decried by Democrats, a step too far? Not by Trump's standards. The controversial string of tweets, which stirred the pot mightily in the press, was as politically incorrect as it comes. In fact, Trump hasn't put out a string like this since the 2016 campaign. The tweets were at least in part about the 2020 campaign. They were also about weakening House speaker Nancy Pelosi,

It’s déjà vu all over again. President Trump has given the hanging party a first-rate piece of rope to use against him. His tweet will not live in infamy, but his cringe-worthy “go back” language rhymes with many of his earlier self-inflicted mistakes.

So it was Sunday, with Democrats engulfed in a vicious civil war and Trump’s poll numbers rising against the 2020 candidates as the public begins to realize how far left they are goin
