A U.S. Senator from California is sponsoring a bill that would let anyone waltz into a holding facility for illegal children and claim them, regardless of the results of a background check.
“[Democrat Sen. Kamala] Harris has signed onto a bill in the Senate, which has a bipartisan House counterpart, that would bar ICE from using information uncovered in a background check to arrest an adult seeking to take in a child,” according to a San Fransisco Chronicle report.
The Chronicle report frames the Trump administration policy of checking the backgrounds of would-be caretakers of illegal children as inhumane, as some of those would-be caretakers are illegals themselves, and as such some have been arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
But the point of the background checks is to protect children from being taken in by undesirables. It is not possible to verify the identity of illegal aliens – only their illegal status – meaning that any old illegal could claim a child by saying that they are are a relative.
That is another fine-print item of the current system.
“The government typically releases [illegal alien] children into the custody of a qualified adult, often a relative,” the report said.
How is that information verifiable without a background check?
The fake news media, in attempting to spin Trump as an evil monster, is aiding Democrats in doing away with safeguards meant to assure that children aren’t taken from holding centers and placed into the hands of strangers, which could lead any number of negative externalities.
The Chronicle report also claimed that most of the illegals who were arrested while attempting to claim a child “had no criminal record.” Apparently, the paper forgot that crossing the border illegally is a crime.
The whole leftist narrative on illegal immigration is a shame. In the interest of upholding the rule of law and keeping children safe from predators, illegal aliens should be background checked before claiming a child, and the whole family should be deported together for breaking the law. That would be a truly “bipartisan” solution to this problem.
NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine
Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.
In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.
In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.
A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.
Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.
This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
