Democrats’ “Child Trafficking Encouragement Act” by The Elephant's Child


These are people who were deeply disturbed by words that were contrived to disturb them — “little children ripped from their mothers’ arms”,”little children in cages” (with pictures left over from the Obama administration). There’s a picture of a woman with a sign reading “Let our children go! Stop Caging Families.” That is the very definition of propaganda. Words designed to influence the emotions and suppress thought. Nobody has been “caging” either children or families. In the cases where children have been separated from their mothers, it is because the law says that you can’t put children in detention (prison) with their parents. The kids have been well cared for, entertained, well fed, and have a good time.

Migrants know they have a better chance of being able to plead for asylum if they have a child with them. Unfortunately, the child may not be their own, and are disposed of when no longer useful. There is sex-trafficking – even of children. There is still slavery. This sort of provision would promote more trafficking, not less.

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) called the plan the “Child Trafficking Encouragement Act” last year as it ensures that adults bringing children to the southern border would gain immediate access into the U.S, without fear of being deported or turned away. He tweeted “Show up at border with a minor & call him your child, then you get released into the US! Children will be abducted & sold to drug cartels & slave-traders as a free ticket into the US.

Democrats respond to emotion, can’t be bothered to find out the facts, and are always ready with a stupid solution that will assuage their emotion and the attending guilt.

The number of adult illegal aliens arriving at the southern border with children has continued surging under Trump. The latest Department of Homeland Security (DHS) data reveals the number of adults crossing the border with children has skyrocketed 280 percent compared to the same time last year.

Last year, the U.S. saw a record number of adult border crossers coming to the U.S. with children. This year, if border reforms are not implemented, DHS officials expect to break last year’s record. As of December 2018, overall illegal immigration is up 81 percent compared to the same time last year.

The House offer includes no money for a border. No money for a border barrier. As of December 2018, overall illegal immigration is up 81 percent compared to the same time last year. It does provide bout $502 million for “humanitarian concerns” – funding that illegal aliens would have access to in the form of food, transportation, medical care, and housing. Medical costs are probably up as more diseases are showing up at the border. We’ve got a number of outbreaks of measles, Typhoid in Los Angeles, and many other diseases.

Democrats want to prevent President Trump from having any success of any kind, because they want to win the Senate and rule once again. Then they can turn their attention to saving the world from global warming, raising taxes on the very rich, moving ever closer to a  social democracy like Venezuela or Cuba, or whatever new bright idea they have like ending the Electoral College, signing all the illegals up to vote, and give everyone Medicare and free college. Don’t laugh, they’re already talking about this stuff. Makes a simple border barrier sound pretty tame.

ADDENDUM: Democrats first offer to President Trump in negotiations about the border wall included a provision that would end all immigration enforcement for migrants trafficking children across the southern border. Adults with children would be granted immediate access and be immediately released into the country, undoubtedly never to be seen again. The number of adults with children has increased by 280% compared to the same time last year.
