Democrat Rep. from Texas and brother of 2020 Democrat candidate Julian Castro (polling between 0%-1%) , Joaquin Castro, tweeted a heavy accusation against the Trump administration on Saturday. He alleges the Trump Admin. is committing human rights violations, and cites an article from The Hill (which cites a report from the AP) detailing a case where a migrant child was separated from her parent, and then put up for adoption. There's just one problem... the case happened UNDER THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. It takes a heavy set of nads to tweet something that profound knowing that anyone who reads beyond the headline will not only realize you're lying, but that the thing you're accusing Trump of actually happened under the messiah, Barack Obama. Pathetic attempt to gaslight and deceive the public. They really think you're stupid.
Migrants are taking advantage of the United States' lax laws when it comes to crossing the border with children. They know a child is a free ticket into the country due to the Flores Consent decision, which mandates family units with a child must be released after 20 days of detention. Show up with a kid? You're in... even if the kid isn't yours. This is why "family separations" at the border are in the interest of protecting children and are in fact the virtual opposite of the "human rights violations" those in DC want you to believe they are. Now ask yourself why certain politicians use this is a political weapon instead of just fixing it themselves like they should. Think for yourself.
