Don’t waste time with courts for migrants at border

Children are separated from their parents routinely in our court system and yet there is no propagandistic hysteria generated about it from the press and TV media.

One would get the impression that the children are routinely beaten and starved by the evil Trump minions by the slanted coverage we are being sold. Nevertheless, I agree that we shouldn’t separate them or hold them and their parents at detention centers. Since we already know all these people are trespassers the moment we catch them there is no need for time wasting legal processing. We should simply have buses available to load up and immediately bus them back to Mexico.

The left apparently doesn’t care that Mexico is dumping its people on us so that they don’t have to spend money on welfare, health care, unemployment or education even though they are a wealthy nation. Why would the left truly risk life and limb protesting in Mexico when it is easier to protest here where they can intimidate public officials while they are eating at a restaurant or watching a movie about Mr. Rogers? The press and left (oxymoron?) have been going full throttle at portraying ICE as stormtroopers stomping on the halo-adorned illegals while good ol’ Me-hee-ko skates free of any responsibility whatsoever.

The left should stand aside from this because their policies and prescriptions have been abundantly disproven over the last 40 years.
