This is the story being discussed at length on TV programs such as Morning Joe and other TV news outlets today.

YOU CAN DO YOUR PART BY PASSING THIS ON TO YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILIES AND TELLING THEM TO DO THE SAME.  EVENTUALLY, SOMEONE IN WASHINGTON WILL LISTEN.

Jack Lippman



And while on this general subject (Immigration), we see that the President has postponed by two weeks his announced operation to gather up and deport all those undocumented immigrants living in this country illegally.  Aside from the enormous logistical problems such an action would create, if indeed it were legal, is the emotional effect it has on families which may, or may not, fit into that category.  Children going to school, a spouse going to work or out to shop for groceries ... all live under the fear that on their return their family might not be where it was a few hours earlier.  Try to imagine the emotional stress involved.  On adults, and more so, on children. 

But it all fits in with the President's skill as a negotiator. Keep changing your position.  Be slippery.  And then no opponent will be able to handle you.  That's his game with immigrants, with health care, with Iran, with trade.  People who have been swindled (Trump University students, Casino contractors, etc.) don't know they've been had until it’s too late.

And also not to be disregarded was the Liar-in-Chief’s claim, when interviewed by Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press” last week, that the practice of separating children from families was originated by Barack Obama, and not Donald Trump, so he should not be blamed for it.  In fact, he went on, he was attempting to undo the harm done by Obama’s practice. 


This is a perfect example of how a skilled professional liar gets away with his lies!  Yes, it is true that under the Obama administration, the practice of separating children from their parents was started, but ONLY where the veracity of the parental relationship needed to be resolved or there was a question of parental abuse involved.  This was not the wholesale separation of children from parents used as a tool to discourage immigrants from applying for asylum which the lying scoundrel presently contaminating the White House has initiated and supported.
