The liberals will have to find something else to complain about now…
On Wednesday, President Trump has signed an executive order to allow children to stay with parents caught crossing the border illegally “while ensuring we have a powerful border.” The measure would allow children to stay in detention with parents for an extended period of time.
“We are keeping families together,” Trump said from the Oval Office while flanked by DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Vice President Mike Pence.
He vowed his administration’s “zero tolerance” policy for illegal immigration would continue.
“This will solve that problem. At the same time, we are keeping a very powerful border and it continues to be a zero tolerance. We have zero tolerance for people who enter our country illegally,” he said.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said that the House will vote Thursday on legislation to allow families to remain together in Homeland Security custody throughout their legal proceedings.
“We do not want children taken away from their parents,” Ryan said. “We can enforce our immigration laws without breaking families apart.”
Yesterday, Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) rejected a legislative proposal backed by Republican leaders to keep immigrant families together at the border proving that Democrats don’t care about the children. Instead of actually fixing the problem, Democrats argued that President Trump could fix the problem more easily with a flick of his pen.
Schumer said: “There are so many obstacles to legislation and when the president can do it with his own pen, it makes no sense. The legislation is not the way to go here when it’s so easy for the president to sign it.”
So next week we’ll be hearing Dems crying that the children are being held in adult detention centers with potentially dangerous criminals and shouldn’t be subjected to that kind of treatment (you know, the whole reason the law was written in the first place)
President Trump is a wonderful father and grandfather! Unfortunately, no matter what he does the left will complain. But, now is a great time for Congress to act and get us our border wall.
