Please pray with us that the truth of this media frenzy will be revealed in its entirety to our citizens.

Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but he who makes his ways crooked will be found out.
(Prv 10:9)

The fire hose of fake news from the establishment media this week on the issue of illegal immigrant families separated at the border is designed to mislead the American people — and to distract from Trump’s recent successes.

Here are the facts — 13 truths the media do not want you to know about President Trump’s legal, humane, and moral handling of adults and children who enter our country illegally.

    Trump Is Only Enforcing the Law

The establishment media’s manufactured narrative about the necessary and moral separation of illegal alien parents from their children is designed with the specific purpose of spreading the fake news that, only as a means to be cruel,  President Trump is somehow making all of this up as he goes along.

In truth, Trump is only complying with and enforcing the law, which is his constitutional duty and responsibility….

Trump’s Only Choice Is to Separate Illegal Alien Families

When an illegal alien crosses the border into the U.S., he is a lawbreaker, and, like any lawbreaker (including American citizens), he is put into the criminal justice system.

This is the law.

Obviously, when an illegal alien is in custody, he is housed in an adult detention center. For obvious reasons, it would be illegal for Trump to “reunite” this family by allowing children to live in adult detention centers….

The only moral and legal option here is to temporarily separate families while the criminal justice system runs its course.

    The Left Wants Illegal Aliens to Enjoy Privileges Denied to American Citizens

If an American citizen breaks the law and is funneled into the justice system, he is separated from his family and children. This American citizen is not allowed to keep his family with him in a detention center.

Once again, our media want illegal aliens to enjoy special rights and privileges American citizens do not enjoy….

    Asylum Seekers Not Breaking the Law are Not Being Separated

If you cross the border illegally and claim asylum, you are still a lawbreaker. Regardless of your intent, crossing the border illegally automatically puts you in the criminal justice system, where you will obviously be separated from family.

These asylum seekers are choosing to break the law, are choosing to be separated from family.

Asylum seekers who respect our laws, by turning themselves in at legal points of entry, are not being separated….

Trump Is Correct About the Loophole

In 1997, a consent decree called the Flores Settlement made it illegal for America to hold migrant children for longer than 20 days. Meaning, in order to keep the family together after 20 days of detention, we can either reunite the family by letting them loose to live illegally in America, or we can keep the parent in detention and place the child in a foster home or with a relative who lives in America.

Trump is wisely choosing to do the latter (for a number of moral reasons I will explain later)….

    “Reuniting” Families Would Be a Disaster for Countless Children

Again, the only way to “keep a family together” is to allow illegals to pour into our country.

This policy would be a total disaster, especially for the children.

If word gets out that America automatically allows illegal border crossers with small children loose into America just because they have minor children, this would only further incentivize those who engage in the child abuse of dragging children along on the unbelievably dangerous trek across the border — or, even worse, both exploiting them for catch-and-release and then trafficking them after making it into the country….

    Obama and Democrats Incentivized This ‘Family Separation’

Until Obama came along, illegal border crossings primarily involved young, single men. Obama incentivized the idea of dragging minor children along on this dangerous journey (where many children are sexually assaulted) through his policy of  “catch and release.”

Once word got out that illegals with small children would be let loose into America, the number of children crossing the border exploded….

Barack Obama Separated Illegal Alien Families, Media Said Nothing

Under Obama, when illegal border crossers were put into the criminal justice system, families were indeed separated. Obama, of course, rarely prosecuted, even though the law calls for it.

Neither Democrats nor the media cared about family separation then, which proves this manufactured and coordinated uproar is only about politics….

    IMPORTANT: The ONLY Way to Unite Families Is to Release Them into America

Obviously, we cannot have children living in adult detention centers. Obviously, we cannot have adults living in child detention centers. Therefore, the only way to “reunite” these families is to release these illegals into our country.

The media will not tell you this because the media do not want you to know that flooding America with non-citizens is their true agenda. The rich and powerful love to exploit and abuse these individuals, as they can leverage their immigration status for illegally low wages, and politicians are salivating at the chance to bestow voting rights on them — and thus entrench their power.

But when you hear the media call for these families to be reunited, remember that is coded language that means only one thing: releasing illegal aliens into our country with nothing more than a court summons.

    Incentivizing the Act of Bringing Minor Children Across the Border Is Evil

The media do not want to inform Americans of one crucial fact: the dangers inherent in crossing the border from Mexico into America, most especially the dangers faced by minor children.  Sadly, these dangers too often involve sexual abuse….

    Those Who Come to America Legally Face ‘Family Separation’

Many people who come to America legally from other countries are separated from family. A big part of America’s LEGAL immigration policy involves family separation when one or two family members come over before the rest are legally or financially able….

    “Family Reunification” Is an Invitation to Human Traffickers

Because of “catch and release,” because of this dumb and destructive loophole carved out for families, the number of illegal aliens using children to enter the U.S. increased by 315 percent between October 2017 and February 2018.

Trump understands what is happening and this is why he has moved to a zero tolerance policy….

    Media Do Not Care About American Families Separated by Criminal Illegal Aliens

Illegal alien families are choosing to be separated by voluntarily engaging in lawbreaking. These illegal alien families, if they so choose, can stay together, simply by obeying the law.

This is not hard.

Those who do not have a choice in family separation are the legions of American families permanently separated from family members when that family member is killed at the hands of an illegal alien. (Excerpts from John Nolte article on Breitbart News)

  1. Linda,
    You asked the perfect and most important question and the one I keep asking.

    If it is OK with liberals (or anyone, even some who claim to be “Christian” and some who claim to be conservative or neutral) and you are not concerned about permanently separating a child (a human form) from the body of a mother is not murder, is just the woman’s choice; and you are not concerned about other children separated from their parents for whatever reason – tragedies, crimes, economic issues, How can you be so concerned for people choosing to put their children through great hardship and danger by bringing them illegally into America, fully knowing they are breaking the law; thinking they are a free pass. When truly we do not know if they are the legal parent, if they child has been kidnapped or sold by parent to be trafficed. To me this is an incongruity of moral understanding and logical reasoning. How does the One have so much priority over the other legally?? It is so important to you to (save?) one legally and yet so much more important to you to have the right to denigrate, decimate and literally “kill” the other.

  2. To Conservative Liberal, Why is no one looking at the actions of the parents who cross the border illegally? Are you just as concerned when a mother is separated from her children when she is sent to jail for doing something illegal, i.e., breaking and entering, stealing?
    What makes me wonder about the stance of liberals in all this is that they are the same people who support a so-called right to abortion, which is the definite and final separation of a child from his/her parents. If it is acceptable with you to deliberately cause the death of an innocent child before he/she is even born, why are you so upset about children being separated from their parents temporarily until it can be ascertained that the ones they are being separated from really are the child’s true parents?

  3. Well, try to explain why Bush, Obama and even Clinton did the same thing (and sometimes worse) and that was not/is not wrong. You have not argument, Trump is working with what Congress and previous administrations gave him to work with. He is just not letting people come and having know idea who they are and where they are ending up and having kids wander around with no knowledge who they are or where they are. It is not about crime; it is about knowing who is coming in and why. Immigration has always had rules and has always been about knowing who is coming in and then they can get established the right way. Do you really think that if hordes of Americans (or even the immigrants) could just go , walking across the border into either Mexico or Canada. Get real. Honest immigrants have always come. but since the founding of government, with process and with great hardship, but through a legal process.

  4. I am surprised that you believe all the lies that come out of the mouth of our president. Legal and illegal immigrants commit less crime than the general population, refugees have generated more income to the government than what they have cost the government. Immigrants are good for America and Trump is trying to drastically decrease LEGAL immigration by using these detained children as hostages. It was not required by law to separate these parents and children, it was done by a policy decision.

  5. Re: Deborah Lemons’ comments:

    Such a great example – to take it, perhaps, one step further: if someone were to bring his children to my door, I would recognize that person needs revelation of his identity as well as of his responsibilities. It, therefore, would be imperative for me to follow the example of JESUS Who walked with, taught, encouraged, mentored those who would follow Him so that they too could “do and say” what originated in the Father. Therefore, this is my prayer focus today:

    Father, we lift up the lost, who are struggling to provide what they perceive to be better lives for their progeny. We recognize that many are attempting, in the only avenues they see open to them, to come here because the United States of America has prospered. Unfortunately, few to none understand the Source of such growth. We call forth in all of us softened hearts and “eyes to see and ears to hear.” Father, help us as Your children to broadcast to all that it is in and by You alone that grace and complete surrender to You and Your ways have been a cornerstone of this great country. We call forth the body of Christ to stand firmly rooted in and boldly LIVING righteousness so that the world SEES, UNDERSTANDS, and EMBRACES TRUTH: You are the Creator, Sustainer, Deliverer, Redeemer, Provider and Protector of all that is good. We ask You to forgive us of the ways in which we have hidden Your Light under a bushel, walked in ways that are indistinguishable from the world and failed to worship You through our obedience to Your will.

    This day, Father, we CHOOSE JESUS: the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE! Holy Spirit, we thank You for Your willingness and Your power to bring restoration and revelation so that the world will see through OUR LIVES that the only true “lamp held high beside the golden door” immortalized in the poem on the plaque of the Statue of Liberty is the LIGHT OF THE WORLD: JESUS Who IS the Golden Door into Your eternal Kingdom. Father, we worship You and praise You and extol You as KING of kings and LORD of lords. We willingly CHOOSE to love not our own lives unto the death that Your Truth will go forth to set the captives free. May You turn this immigration situation, and the attempted distraction it attempts to bring to cover other issues confronting our government, into great increase of Your KINGDOM. We love You, thank and bless You for loving us first and forever. In JESUS’ Holy Name and for His sake in the joy that was set before Him we pray. Amen
    See Psalm 107:1-9

  6. Esp. to Conservative Liberal (WHAT???) I don’t think this issue is about whether we (America) has compassion, has a heart or any of those ideals. Everyone knows America has compassion, that is why others want to take advantage, why they want to be here. However whether we are having compassion or doing right at the border is over-ruled by the fact that all of these people who are showing up at the border (except the kids who are being trafficked or abandoned) are making conscious choice to come there. If they cross the border at a non-crossing point, they are making a conscious choice to break the law and become a criminal, irregardless of their kids; but fully knowing America will take care of their kids. This is a conscious choice and total responsibility of the parent(s) or adults committing the action.

    If a person or parents from a neighboring town or state decided to pick your home as a place to drop their kids or to come and tell you they are leaving their kids at your house and telling you, now they are your responsibility, does it automatically become your responsibility? Would you accept that responsibility with heart and compassion and no questions asked, no attempt to try finding out why or to take these kids to authorities because they are not your kids and they truly are responsibility of someone else and should not be separated from their parents. The Border issue is basically the same scenario. Because we are a compassionate nation and peoples, does that truly make us responsible for everyone else’s problems or the problems created by their own governments?? REALLY???

  7. Thank you thank you for this article and reporting facts and truth!! This President needs our prayers & support like no other. I believe he may be one of the greatest Presidents our country has ever had, especially considering all the evil and fake news that is coming against him and his administration. How shocking and horrifying were Peter Fonda’s tweets, like a terrorist! Are there no moral boundaries left at all??? Yet I believe the American people will rise up!!! We will be a people who overcome evil with good!!
    “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil by good” Rom. 12:21

  8. I don’t want to put myself in “human shoes” or judge others by what I “think I know”. I decided what I “think I know” in this cultural war of “mediatic frenzy” is not enough, I turned to our Way-Maker God, He knows. God knows. He is our source of truth. Standing wholly-holy aligned with Him, I know, without a doubt, I can stand on the side of truth. I depend on the Holy Spirit of God for my truth. God is speaking what is true and I am listening up to Him first. The core of this matter for Christians is not our “worldly viewpoint” it is returning to a wholly-holy prayer dependence on God. We can’t know His Ways. He is working in the unseen of all of our human messes. We all are wrong, He is right. What I am doing is laying down what I “think I know” and asking God to speak what is true. I am praying for the return of #CommonSense, which has been sacrificed on the altar of political idols. Lay down political idols, return to seeking a Kingdom Perspective more than following a “worldly viewpoint”. We are in a cultural war on earth, but it is not so in heaven, Jesus, The Spirit of Truth, The Light of the world has won the victory and offers the freedom from all false narrative, a liberty that matters, eternally so. #PrayItUP Cling to God, Dig your life roots deeply in Him. Things are not as we “think” they seem from our worldly viewpoint, that is why prayer is the way we can #BeBest and walk, stand and be a Voice of truth that leads others to a Kingdom Perspective. #PrayItUP #IntercessorsForAmerica #RiseUpBowDownPray

  9. @conservative liberal. This isint about how you feel. All I see in your response is about how YOU feel.

    This goes beyond your feelings. You state you don’t need facts to have a heart, I’m sorry to say but that is so wrong. Truth is vital here, and most of what shapes how YOU feel has been influenced by lies.

    It is clear that the liberal media is lying and twisting facts for its political gain regarding this issue. This article is factual. Please check yourself, and deal with your high degree of cognitive dissonance.

  10. Father GOD,
    Right now, we call forth Holy Spirit to bring His life-giving conviction to all, particularly believers, who perceive themselves to be in situations that are causing them to gravitate to actions that are against laws that have been established by those in authority. We know, Father, that it is Your will that we:
    be subject to those in authority…there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
    We also recognize that too often, even as believers, we challenge those laws: just look at our driving habits! We also know, Father, that when we are faithful even in the little things, it establishes our character, our trust in Your Holy Nature and our commitment to living lives that are pleasing to You.

    The fact that people all over the world desire to come to the United States is because You alone have blessed our nation as we have exalted Your Lordship and lived according to Your principles, precepts and power. However, as we, too, have traded truth, honor and integrity for a baser course of action, and failed to manifest righteousness and holiness in the mundane things of life, we have presented a false view of Who You ARE. We ask for Your forgiveness and we recommit ourselves to the high standard to which You not only call us but empower us through Holy Spirit to live. We recognize that the defeated foe would veil the truth that disobedience brings consequences. Hence, we choose Life and the narrow path that is a lamp to our feet. Help us to be always mindful of the masses who are watching and to do our part to ensure that it is Your glory that is always and increasingly manifested through us as living members of the body of Your Son. It is for His sake and in His Blessed, Mighty Name – the name of JESUS, Your Anointed Son we pray. Amen.

  11. ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 19:18-19.

    Thank for your insight at ” United Families ” for I have the same situation for years which badly affected to my children. Because important is important so that ” we cannot have children living in adult detention centers and we cannot have adults living in child detention centers.” Believing, we will get total release soon and have the opportunity for restoration. Please give. God bless America. Thank you.

  12. Justice Reigns thank you for your response. As in politics and religion everyone has an opinion and everyone feels theirs is the “right” of it. I do agree that the system is broken. I do believe in enforcing our laws. I however also believe in COMPASSION.

    I personally don’t see anything wrong with children staying with parents until they are deported. I don’t have to have facts to have a heart. I am not looking at it from a political stand point, I am looking at it from a mother, a person. I want us as a country to do the right thing but still have heart. Is that so hard? Why can’t there still be compassion? Remove politics and imagine the crying faces of children missing their parents. Imagine you not knowing where your child is and barely getting any answers? I don’t care which party is to blame. Let us truly treat others as we would want to be treated if we were in their shoes.

    I felt the piece that was written was just as bad as the other news out there. I felt it was justifying why things were being done as they were. If you feel I have judged them, so be it. That’s your right. I feel I have been judged by you as well and that’s okay, too.

    Once again, let’s remove politics out of this situation and let’s have a heart. If you are on this site, I assume you are a Believer, as am I, and as a Believer we should try and live out 1 Corinthians 13 as much as we can. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Blessings on you.

  13. Conservative Liberal: You may not agree with what you read but it all comes down to enforcing our laws. There is no justification here at all. They are following the law and trying to fix our broken immigration system. Did you know that 10,000 out of 12,000 children have been sent to the US borders by themselves, with no parent? What are we to do with these children, just release them into the packs of ravenous sexual predators just waiting to snatch them up and into sexual slavery. I hope you will find out the facts before you begin to judge others so harshly and publically shaming them.

  14. The Globalists want ilegal aliens to have more privileges that the US citizens. My grandparents came here here legally with a job waiting. Democrats just want new voters and more power.

  15. I do NOT agree with this. This article is a justification of actions. Its wrong, period. It’s not about Republicans and Democrats, it’s about doing right. Put yourself in their shoes. We as a country can do better than this. We as Believers in the Body of Christ can do better than this. Separating children from parents is wrong and this article makes me wonder if the powers that be TRULY knows Christ and what He stood for. Shame on you Intercessors For America!

  16. Once again the media is deliberately misleading people. The left does not want a solution to this problem and between the pols, Hollywood, and the MSM, they are showing their true colors to the American people. Congress in the US is a disgrace. May the President remain calm and stand firm.
