They knew they were breaking the law when they entered the United States of America illegally. They could have applied for citizenship and waited in line behind everyone else who made the decision to follow their dreams of becoming an American citizen. They instead, chose to take the risk of sneaking themselves and their families across the border. Now, they want American taxpayers to give them millions of American dollars because they didn’t feel they were treated fairly by the immigration officers, who are being tasked with figuring out what to do with thousands of lawbreakers from foreign countries. Do these lawbreaking foreigners believe they deserve some sort of prize, or special treatment for dragging their children, or in many cases, other people’s children across the border with them? Apparently, they do, and now, they’re unashamedly asking American taxpayers to do the unthinkable.
According to the Daily Mail – Eight immigrant families demanded millions of dollars in damages Monday from the Trump administration for separating them, including a Guatemalan woman who alleged an officer said her five-year-old son would be taken and then taunted, ‘Happy Mother’s Day.’
In claims filed with the U.S. government Monday, the parents accused immigration officers of taking their children away without giving them information and sometimes mocking them or denying them a chance to say goodbye.
The claims allege that many children remain traumatized even after being reunited with their parents, including a seven-year-old girl who won’t sleep without her mother and a six-year-old boy who is reluctant to eat.
In a MUST WATCH video, Turning Point USA Communications Director Candace Owens can be seen ranting after touring an ICE detention facility for illegal alien children and women in Broward County, Florida. She is shocked when she sees an indoor basketball court, Zumba classes, 24-hour medical care, a barber shop, beauty shop and sand volleyball pits. Candace claims that the rooms where the illegal aliens are being housed are nicer than her dorm room where she attended college. Owens says she has never wanted a video to go viral more than this one, claiming that Democrats should be “disgusted with yourselves” after seeing how much better illegal aliens are treated than the poor children in inner cities in America. ***Language warning***
The Department of Homeland Security did not respond to a request for comment regarding the lawsuits by the illegal aliens.
The Trump administration has acknowledged it separated more than 2,000 families last year through the implementation of a zero-tolerance policy intended to crack down on Central American migration at the U.S.-Mexico border.
In June 2018, Breitbart News revealed mutliple images from the inside of a shelter where migrant children who’ve been separated from their parents are being held. The Department of Health and Human Services hosted Breitbart News and other media outlets on a tour of a detention facility in El Cajon, California.
Families that arrive together at legal ports of entry and apply for asylum status are generally not split up and are permitted to stay in the U.S. pending the adjudication of their applications (which can take several years).
Democrats and the mainstream media have accused the administration of separating the children of “immigrants” from their parents and imprisoning them in “cages.”
The facility at El Cajon, however, is not a “cage.” It is a comfortable facility providing lodging, meals, clothing, medical care, education, recreation, counseling, and other services.
It is run by a nonprofit organization called Southwest Key as part of the Department of Health and Human Services’ Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) Program, run by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF).
The facility is located on a main street in a quiet, suburban neighborhood. It has 65 beds, occupied by boys ages 6 to 17. The rooms are spare, with three to four beds in each; the boys are responsible for cleaning the rooms and making their own beds. There is an outdoor recreation area with picnic tables and a small soccer pitch.
There is a classroom area and English lessons. The goal is “reunification”: letting each child depart with a legal guardian.
Some 90% of the children at the shelter arrived at the border without adults; the other 10% were separated from the adults accompanying them. Once the children arrive — usually brought by U.S. Border Patrol agents — they are greeted in the “intake” office, where they receive any urgent medical care, are assigned a case worker, and are given food, a shower, and new clothing. They are also given toiletries and lessons in hygiene — literally how to flush a toilet, brush their teeth, and operate the shower, which some of the children may have never seen in their lives.
The children receive six hours of education daily, which include lessons in English and physical education. The boys interact with girls who are housed offsite and brought to the shelter during the day to access its services.
We’re still waiting to hear how many American families have successfully sued the Mexican government for allowing illegal aliens to cross into the U.S. and killed their loved ones…
We’d love to know what you think about foreigners who broke our laws, attempting to take millions of our hard earned U.S. tax dollars? Is this more proof that we need a wall more than ever? We’d love to know what you think in the comment section below.
