Breaking. Hillary just went on a Rampage!

By

Hillary Clinton just went on a Twitter storm, blaming President Trump for the illegal acts of others.

On a day when protests are happening against the United States handling of children brought to the United States illegally, Hillary Clinton is trying to fuel the fire, and blame Trump for the illegal actions of others.

Here’s what Hillary had to say on the matter.

Like so many others, I am horrified and heartbroken by what is happening to immigrant kids and families because of this administration’s disastrous policies.

We now know that more than 700 kids were separated from their parents between October 2017 and April 2018. As a mother and a grandmother, it’s devastating to even imagine.

Not only that – this administration built on their “zero tolerance” policy earlier this month. The result? Nearly 700 more kids were separated from their families in the first two weeks of the new program. Think about that. Hundreds of families torn apart in two weeks.

Muzaffar Chishti of ‪@MigrationPolicy‬ said something that has stuck with me.

He said that “In the immigration context, the government has never taken a stand against the protection of kids in this country. For the first time, it is now formally taking a position that explicitly goes against the best interests of kids.”

He said that “In the immigration context, the government has never taken a stand against the protection of kids in this country. For the first time, it is now formally taking a position that explicitly goes against the best interests of kids.”

There is no more important test of our country than the way we treat the most vulnerable among us, especially children. We cannot turn away from what’s happening on our watch – we have to act.

Notice the continued use of the term “immigrant” and “immigration” while leaving off the “illegal” aspect of all of it. When parents in the United States endanger their children, we applaud when authorities remove them from danger. When parents drag their children across a desert, with hardly any water or food, knowing that they most likely will become injured or worse on the trip, we are supposed to consider that safe parenting practices? If you don’t want your child removed from your custody, don’t bring them to cross the border illegally. How could anyone blame the administration for that?
