Dear Mr. President

Instead of blaming the Democrats, why don't you just issue an executive order? Executive orders don't seem to be foreign to you.

Dear Mr. President, you and I both know the answer.

As part of your "art of the deal" tactics, you really do not care how many kids' lives you destroy.

Dear Mr. President, your actions are so despicable that at least 15 Republican Senators are willing to call you on it.

Senators Object

The Hill reports 13 GOP senators ask administration to pause separation of immigrant families.

GOP senators, led by Sen. Orrin Hatch (Utah), sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions asking for a moratorium of the president's controversial "zero tolerance" policy, which is resulting in the separation of families detained at the border.

"We support the administration’s efforts to enforce our immigration laws, but we cannot support implementation of a policy that results in the categorical forced separation of minor children from their parents," the Republican senators wrote.

In addition to Hatch, GOP Sens. John McCain (Ariz.), Pat Roberts (Kan.), Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Bob Corker (Tenn.), Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), John Boozman (Ark.), Dean Heller (Nev.), Cory Gardner (Colo.), James Lankford (Okla.), Bill Cassidy (La.) and Rob Portman (Ohio) signed on to the letter to Sessions.

The senators added in their letter Tuesday that they've "read with increasing alarm" media reports of immigrant children being separated from their parents.

Ted Cruz

The Texas Tribune reports Ted Cruz introduces legislation to keep immigrant families together after they cross the border.

That's 14.

Rand Paul

KFVS News reports Both parties move to stop Trump Administration from separating migrant families.

Republican Sen. Rand Paul released a statement that read, “I strongly support enforcing our immigration laws, securing our border, and protecting our country. At the same time, I oppose the government separating families.”

That's 15.

There may be more that I do not know about. The rest are fools or cowards afraid to speak out.

Cowardly Response

RECOMMENDED ARTICLES

This was the cowardly response from Homeland Security: Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Monday it was up to Congress to pass legislature to end the policy of separating children from their parents as part of the country's overall immigration procedure.

Excuse me for asking again.

Dear Mr. President

Instead of blaming the Democrats, why don't you just issue an executive order? Executive orders don't seem to be foreign to you.

By the way, 13 Republican Senators believe you can do this by yourself. Not only do they believe this can be fixed by executive order, they are explicitly asking you to do just that!

Let the Taunts Begin

In response to my last post on this subject, I received the expected jackass responses. One person asked me to take in refugees.

Clearly that person cannot read because I never said, "Let them in." Rather, I said, "Don't separate families."

Another commented on abortion and my crocodile tears. I replied the subjects are not the same and I do not accept his definition of personhood.

A third person commented on the "rule of law," and I politely pointed out that slavery was once the rule of law.

So keep the inane comments coming. I will reply to them as time fits.

But before making inane comments I advise re-reading Trump's Immoral Immigration Tactics: What's the Libertarian View?

Oh Well

I expect this:

That's always the risk. And it has happened to me numerous times.

Like Hussman, I prefer to state my views and let the consequences be damned.

I do not play politics. I state my views.

Addendum

As expected, this did not take long:
