Disgraceful Conditions in Children's Detention Camps on the Border Exposed in Magazine Article
Clint, Texas, facility where children are being detained under horrible conditions.
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.
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

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
