This is unreal what's happening right now on the U.S.-Mexico border. Small children in cages! Be clear that this is not anything close to a court-ordered ruling, but rather represents White House policy itself.
Listen below to this June 14, 2018 exchange today on this crisis between news reporters and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
It's so disingenuous to say that this is the democrat's fault when it's the republicans that are in power and could do something about this crisis today. It's also incorrect that this decision to tear families apart, arrest parents, and send their children to jail is mere enforcement of the law. A CBS reporter tells Sanders that there is no such law in existence that requires family separation. Another cries out in anguish, asking Sanders if she has any empathy.
Read the NBC article and listen to Sanders' heart of stone.
White House policy is white supremacy at a level that I have never seen in my lifetime. Separating children from their mothers and jailing kids is flatly unacceptable.
Rise up, folks! Take a stand!

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday it's "moral policy" to enforce the law, falsely claiming that federal law mandates the separation of families at the U.S.-Mexico border. In heated exchanges at Thursday's press briefing, Sanders was pressed about remarks by Attorney General Jeff Sessions' at an event in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on Thursday in which he cited the Bible to defend the administration's immigration policy.
"These laws are the same that have been on the books for over a decade and the president is simply enforcing them," Sanders claimed. She added that it's "moral policy to follow and enforce the law." CBS News' Paula Reid noted to Sanders that in fact there is no such law that requires the separation of families at the border.
In April, Sessions announced that the Justice Department would prosecute anyone attempting to cross the border illegally, athat has resulted in the children being separated from parents. He defended the policy shift in his remarks on Thursday.
"First, illegal entry into the United States is a crime -- as it should be. Persons who violate the law of our nation are subject to prosecution," Sessions said at the event. "I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order. Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful."
