Controversy continues to sweep the nation as the Trump Administration enforces our immigration laws - specifically not allowing those who arrive illegally with children, the ability to immediately enter the counter.
This all dates back to 1997 and a case called Flores. The Flores Settlement took place under President Clinton and was started under President Reagan. This from the New York Times in an attempt to blame President Trump:
"In 2016, the Ninth Circuit of Appeals ruled that the Flores settlement “unambiguously applies both to minors who are accompanied and unaccompanied by their parents.” It also overturned a Federal District Court’s decision that the government must also release the parents.
"Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a “zero tolerance” policy in April, stating that “our goal is to prosecute every case that is brought to us” — thus leading to the detention of migrant parents."
In other words, the Attorney General is the problem because he has decided on a zero tollerance policy when it comes to enforcing our laws and decisions.
So should we enforce those laws or just let everyone who has a kid with them, into our country?
