Using the logic of Look at what you made me do, Donald Trump is blaming
asylum-seeking families for his cruel decision to forcibly separate children
from parents, and somehow also managed to blame the parents for his
administrations inability to reunite those families.
This is how Trump justified the administrations failure to meet a court-ordered
Tuesday deadline for family reunification: Well, I have a solution. Tell people
not to come to our country illegally. Thats the solution. Dont come to our
country illegally. Come like other people do. Come legally, he told reporters
on Tuesday, as reported by Politico. Im saying this very simply: We have laws.
We have borders. Dont come to our country illegally. Its not a good thing.
The Associated Press reports that around 54 children under the of 5 will be
reunited with their families on Tuesday, which means that the administration has
failed to reunite about half of the youngest children by the July 10 deadline.
The court has ordered the administration to reunite all families by July
26something the administration does not seem to know how (or care much) to do.
