The reporting on the current American illegal alien high drama reminds me of the highly sensationalized crisis of Syrian refugees flooding western Europe a few years ago. I wrote a blog post, Adding It Up, back in 2015, where I jotted down the amounts spent by a group of Syrian refugees, which had 4 adults and one child, chronicled in a Washington Post piece, titled, The Black Route, by Anthony Faiola.
This chronicle was intended to pull at your heartstrings recounting the trials and travails of this group, but what struck me was that this group, if their accounting is truthful, spent over $20,000 to flee Syria and traverse Eastern Europe to arrive in Austria. I wondered where on earth they managed to come up with that amount of money to pay smugglers and to acquire a smart phone, which was needed to communicate via encrypted apps used to send and receive information to avoid apprehension, direct refugees to aid and relay messages.
This chronicle also mentioned NGOs along the route, set-up to assist refugees. I wondered what groups were funding these NGOs, to not only aid refugees, but also to help fuel this refugee crisis into western Europe. Common sense, upon reading these details, led me to suspect there were politically motivated groups working to foment the Syrian refugee crisis in Europe, playing on the misery of poor refugees.
Fast forward to this current child separation illegal immigration drama, with children being separated from their parents, the Left and media hysterically spinning this story to fuel anger and rage at President Trump… right when the IG report on the FBI and DOJ’s handling of the Clinton email investigation was released. The timing of the media hysteria about these children was obviously orchestrated. The hysterical talking points are obviously orchestrated too.
The perplexing issue for me is not the policy, it’s the way this crisis seems totally manufactured. If you were an illegal with a child, attempting to enter the United States and you knew that there was a zero tolerance policy in place or even knew the border agents were ramping up apprehensions, shouldn’t that lead to a decrease in illegal crossings?
Listening to the DHS secretary yesterday, she mentioned dramatic increases in illegals flooding the border. Long before the sensationalized news stories of illegal alien parents being separated from their children in the U.S. circled the globe the gossip along the illegal alien trail spread, so wouldn’t you expect a decrease in parents with children heading to the U.S border instead of dramatic increases?
This brought to mind the Syrian refugee crisis and once again, instead of wondering about the child separation policy, I began to wonder if there are political groups organizing, funding, encouraging, and working in Mexico and Central America to foment this border crisis? Are these groups working in concert with Democrats to orchestrate this crisis? And is the mainstream media complicit in selling an orchestrated crisis to damage President Trump and aid Democrats in the upcoming midterms?
It just smells like more orchestrated agitation propaganda being played against the American people… again.
Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) on Tuesday dismissed a legislative proposal backed by Republican leaders to keep immigrant families together at the border, arguing that President Trump could fix the problem more easily with a flick of his pen.
“There are so many obstacles to legislation and when the president can do it with his own pen, it makes no sense,” Schumer told reporters. “Legislation is not the way to go here when it’s so easy for the president to sign it.”
Asked if that meant Democrats would not support a bill backed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to keep immigrant families together while seeking asylum on the U.S. border, Schumer said they want to keep the focus on Trump.
