Just to get this right: The QAnon crowd believes a fantasy that Donald Trump is fighting a vast child sex conspiracy, which means they support the guy who caused actual child abuse by separating kids from their parents. We live in a very stupid time.

BREAKING: A refugee child has died “following her stay at an ICE detention center, as a result of possible negligent care, and a respiratory illness she contracted from one of the other children. Events took place in Dilley Family Detention Center in south Texas,” says TX lawyer.

There was an episode of Frontline last night on Maryland Public Television about children being separated from parents at the border. It was an enlightening episode and in the tradition of Frontline, definitely not a shrill production. I would recommend it. I just blundered into it last night or else I would have posted some notice about it.

SATIRE

Ivanka Trump Distraught After Learning Detained Migrant Children Completely Without Sewing Machines

pmug3zyzae9jaojcxbdi.jpg

WASHINGTON––While being briefed on the inhumane, unsanitary, often abusive conditions in facilities housing more than 700 immigrant children who have been separated from their families for months on end, White House advisor and first daughter Ivanka Trump was distraught to learn Thursday that none of the detainees from ages 1 to 12 had even the most basic access to sewing machines. “When I think of those poor kids, caged so far from the factories where they belong, it just breaks my heart,” said Trump, as her chin quivered at the mere thought of the hundreds of young children who had been stripped of their right to make designer bags, shoes, and clothing. “These poor little children have the ideal hand and finger size to make small, precise stitches in profitable designer clothing, and any decent sweatshop should be able to find more than enough room for them. It’s deeply upsetting to picture them just waiting on a cold, empty concrete floor without a single purse or jacket to sew. That any child, regardless of national origin, should be treated like this is an unthinkable waste, and I intend to personally see that these children are reunited with their sewing machines immediately.” Ms. Trump later announced the establishment of the Ivanka Trump Collection Foundation, which will donate thousands of dollars’ worth of garment-making equipment to ICE facilities.

Yeah, but think of all the money she'll save by not having to ship the clothing from

China. What an airhead.

Ivanka Trump says the news of family separations at the border "was a low point" during her time in the White House: "I felt very strongly about that and I am very vehemently against family separation and the separation of parents and children..." https://cnn.it/2AJY2zF

Mothers being separated from their babies-- is all about her.

The truly pathetic thing about this woman is that she actually had some inroads to stopping this policy before it started and to stopping it once it had started.

More pathetic is she doesn't even realize what she really is.

@IvankaTrump, one of the few people in government who could insist on policies to reunite & provide care & compensation for damage done, uses strong words & distances herself from family separation but fails to take any action. Shameless.

‘Ivanka will save us’ ideology is sort of like a **** 21st century recast of the old ‘If the Tsar only knew how bad his ministers treat us’ mindset that kept Russian serfdom low energy and sad sack for centuries.

 Ivanka's only concern is saving her name in a good place on trump's will and last Testament.

Judge Sabraw angry with Trump administration for not having a plan in place to find deported parents:

“The reality is that for every parent who is not located, there will be a permanently orphaned child,

 

and that is 100% the responsibility of the administration.”

Should the children pay for the sins of the parents?

Still no responsibility for the parents illegally crossing the border

Day after day we hear of more reports that these migrant children --

who are being held in government custody--

Are being sexually assaulted.

There's no excuse for this.

Minor children always pay for the sins of their parents;  e.g. a parents commits a crime;  they are either fined or given a jail sentence,  which impacts the parents ability to earn an income;  both type of sanctions hurt their children.

Entering a foreign country illegally or overstaying one's visa is an illegal act.   

NOW;  the Feds should have never separated illegal immigrant kids from their parents; instead should have just instantly returned the entire family back over the border they came from.  BUT the initial action that caused these families to be separated was the adults deciding to enter a foreign country illegally.

I guess when it’s Melania’s Family, it’s “family reunification” and should be applauded. Everybody else, it’s “chain migration” and must be stopped.🤷🏻‍♀️

WH aide Stephen Miller, who takes responsibility for Trump’s harsh immigration policies, had a great-grandfather who was denied naturalization — and the reason given for his denial was "ignorance" https://yhoo.it/2lkPrbV  by @lisabelkin

It looks as though Mr. Miller has inherited much of his intellectual ability from his great-grandfather.

Genetics do count.

Remember this is the guy who threw away around $80 worth of sushi because he was angry with an employee in the restaurant.
