Title: Anti-Trump media moves goal posts after executive order in 'shameful' display of bias

The reaction to President Trump's executive order on Wednesday, which will allow parents who have crossed the U.S. border illegally to remain with their children, served as a microcosm of how he simply cannot win when it comes to the mainstream media.

“It’s nearly impossible for this president to please his critics. In this case, he’s reversing his policy that separates these migrant families, but Democrats and the media immediately move the goal post, saying that what he’s doing isn’t enough,” Mediaite columnist Joseph Wulfsohn told Fox News.

After weeks of calling for Trump to take action, he signed the order allowing children to stay in detention with their parents for an extended period of time. The order came after he and other officials repeatedly said only Congress had the power to stop children and their parents from being separated.

Trump’s executive order wasn’t good enough for his critics. CNN’s Jake Tapper opened his show by asking, “Why didn’t he do this 2,000 kids ago?” Tapper would go on to speculate that Trump “didn’t really sound” like he wanted to sign the executive order, while other CNN pundits criticized the president by saying that he didn’t actually need to sign an executive order to end the policy. CNN’s Don Lemon called Trump “shameful” and said he only “caved” when heartbreaking photos emerged before defending Democrats – who the Trump administration has blamed for the law.

“Zero tolerance has nothing to do with Democrats. It was this White House that decided to prosecute every single adult crossing the border illegally,” Lemon said, perhaps not realizing what the term “illegally” means.

Since Trump signed the order, CNN’s on-screen chyrons have been snarky and condescending, such as “Executive order ending family separation creates new chaos” and “Trump caves on his own family separation policy.”

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell mocked Trump for generating headlines such as “Trump caves,” and spent a significant chunk of his primetime program looking for loopholes and flaws in the order.

“For the last week, the liberal media were concerned about the Trump administration separating kids while their parents were being detained. But now that the kids would be allowed to stay with their families, the networks were huffing and puffing about kids being in jail,” NewsBusters analyst Nicholas Fondacaro wrote. “CBS Evening News” anchor Jeff Glor ranted that Trump was trying to “put out a big political fire with a few drops of ink,” while NBC’s Jacob Soboroff harped on the fact that reunited families would continue to be detained.

“Frankly, we do not know how long these families will be detained together. What we do know is that children that were held alone in facilities like this will now be housed with their parents. Historically the length of those family detentions could be up to 20 days long,” Soboroff said.

ABC’s “World News Tonight” anchor David Muir said the executive order leads to new questions and asked, “How long can the Trump administration detain entire families?”

ABC News even sent a misleading Tweet, captioning a clip of Trump saying, "We're sending them the hell back," with news about the executive order – when the president was actually referring to the brutal MS-13 gang.

Wulfsohn said that it’s a “political strategy” for liberal pundits to “always be upset at Trump,” even if they get what they want.

“They will still express manufactured outrage in order to push their agenda,” Wulfsohn said.

Late night comedians also used the executive order as an excuse to mock the president. Stephen Colbert played a clip of Trump saying he doesn’t like the idea of families being separated – something liberals have called for him to say – and then sneered that Trump makes everything about himself.

Colbert said Trump signing the order “made it look like he did something good instead of admitting to ending the evil thing he started.”

Samantha Bee joked, “Yay! No more baby internment camps, just regular internment camps… That’s what we call a win in 2018.”

Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News that it was “never about the policy” and it wasn’t even about children or families.

“It’s always been about cynical emotional manipulation. Manufacturing a crisis, stoking hysteria and even condoning violence, all in the name of getting clicks and viewers. It’s one of the most shameful chapters in our modern media’s history,” Barron said.

Trump plays 3d chess while Dems play chess and pubs play checkers.

Got to love it.

MSM, Demoncrat left arm said Trump had the power to make child being separated from parents go away and Trump said he did not have the power to do so because it was a law. Regressives lied and Trump called their bluff gave an executive order and guess what? Regressives are freaking out and said you can not detain children because of the law that Trump sited to begin with and his executive order will be knocked down in court. Trump shows you how to fight demoncrats!

You guys of no faith watch Trump play the evil bastards using children as a shield. Demoncrats do not care about children. Abortion and telling illegal aliens that if they send us your children here we can break the borders. But don't worry if they are raped or killed along the way!

The whole thing is just an excuse for people that hate Trump to bash him. That's all it is, so nothing Trump does will be good or good enough.

It might be hypocritical for me to hold them in contempt though. If Hillary were in office instead, I might well be doing to her what the liberal media is doing to Trump.

But of course, the difference would be that she'd deserve it.

The difference between Trump and Hillary is she is a criminal. She is evil anti- American. No you would be right to disagree with her just like we were against Obama. If Obama would have gone to the right I would have not been so hard on him. But a marxist is a Marxist no matter what they call themselves.

What is that? Historically since less than a year ago?

And the legal history getting there, starting in 1985, is quite a story unto itself.

I haven't seen the text of the order here, so I'll just throw it in for the heck of it. I like the title.

Executive Orders

Affording Congress an Opportunity to Address Family Separation

Immigration

Issued on: June 20, 2018

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq., it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. It is the policy of this Administration to rigorously enforce our immigration laws. Under our laws, the only legal way for an alien to enter this country is at a designated port of entry at an appropriate time. When an alien enters or attempts to enter the country anywhere else, that alien has committed at least the crime of improper entry and is subject to a fine or imprisonment under section 1325(a) of title 8, United States Code. This Administration will initiate proceedings to enforce this and other criminal provisions of the INA until and unless Congress directs otherwise. It is also the policy of this Administration to maintain family unity, including by detaining alien families together where appropriate and consistent with law and available resources. It is unfortunate that Congress’s failure to act and court orders have put the Administration in the position of separating alien families to effectively enforce the law.

Sec. 2. Definitions. For purposes of this order, the following definitions apply:

(a) “Alien family” means

(i) any person not a citizen or national of the United States who has not been admitted into, or is not authorized to enter or remain in, the United States, who entered this country with an alien child or alien children at or between designated ports of entry and who was detained; and

(ii) that person’s alien child or alien children.

(b) “Alien child” means any person not a citizen or national of the United States who

(i) has not been admitted into, or is not authorized to enter or remain in, the United States;

(ii) is under the age of 18; and

(iii) has a legal parent-child relationship to an alien who entered the United States with the alien child at or between designated ports of entry and who was detained.

Sec. 3. Temporary Detention Policy for Families Entering this Country Illegally. (a) The Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary), shall, to the extent permitted by law and subject to the availability of appropriations, maintain custody of alien families during the pendency of any criminal improper entry or immigration proceedings involving their members.

(b) The Secretary shall not, however, detain an alien family together when there is a concern that detention of an alien child with the child’s alien parent would pose a risk to the child’s welfare.

(c) The Secretary of Defense shall take all legally available measures to provide to the Secretary, upon request, any existing facilities available for the housing and care of alien families, and shall construct such facilities if necessary and consistent with law. The Secretary, to the extent permitted by law, shall be responsible for reimbursement for the use of these facilities.

(d) Heads of executive departments and agencies shall, to the extent consistent with law, make available to the Secretary, for the housing and care of alien families pending court proceedings for improper entry, any facilities that are appropriate for such purposes. The Secretary, to the extent permitted by law, shall be responsible for reimbursement for the use of these facilities.

(e) The Attorney General shall promptly file a request with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California to modify the Settlement Agreement in Flores v. Sessions, CV 85-4544 (“Flores settlement”), in a manner that would permit the Secretary, under present resource constraints, to detain alien families together throughout the pendency of criminal proceedings for improper entry or any removal or other immigration proceedings.

Sec. 4. Prioritization of Immigration Proceedings Involving Alien Families. The Attorney General shall, to the extent practicable, prioritize the adjudication of cases involving detained families.

Sec. 5. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(b) This order shall be implemented in a manner consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

Which is precisely why you never agree with them on anything.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.
