BREAKING: Trump signs executive order to keep immigrant families together (VIDEO)

The latest battle in the media vs. Trump war has been underway for a while now, with news outlets and social media presenting wall-to-wall discussions of America’s immigration policies, and the Trump administration’s implementation of those policies.

President Donald Trump made a decisive move today, signing an executive order that puts an end to immigrant family separations, which should be a win for him in the public eye, but it remains to be seen how that will all shake out.

Until now, there’s been a veritable firestorm of emotions and shouting and misinformation, sometimes intentional, sometimes not, with a few random moments of calm explanation of the facts.

Some have been certain, as they have been for a few years now, that Trump is the new Hitler and is locking up children in destitute cages, feeding them gruel, and delighting in their pain of being separated from their parents who have sought entry into the U.S.

Other outlets, such as the Daily Wire, have taken the time to explain that it was a 1997 federal government agreement that stipulated that unaccompanied children of illegal immigrants could not be held in custody for longer than 20 days, and a 9th Circuit Court ruling that later added accompanied children into the mix.

It’s also noted that immigrants who come to official entry ports seeking asylum are not arrested—it’s those who are attempting to enter America illegally and claiming asylum once they are caught who are finding themselves in a bind. Trump is treating them like criminals, according to the law, and if they choose deportation they stay with their children, but if they choose to apply for asylum, their children are separated from them according to the Clinton-era law after 20 days.

Furthermore, many of the pictures of children detainment centers that have shocked so many are actually from the Obama era, when no one had a tear to shed over the issue.

But wherever one stands on the issue, one thing is now beyond debate—while Democrats talk the immigration policy talk, President Trump is now walking the immigration policy walk, and is actually doing something to change the situation brought about by the Clinton-era government and that continued under Bush Jr. and Obama.

He signed an executive order earlier today allowing children to remain with their parents who are caught crossing the border illegally.

Trump also made sure to emphasize that he is remaining tough on illegal immigration, and still has the wall in view, but that he, along with his wife and daughter, feel very strongly about keeping families together.

It’s about keeping families together, while at the same time, being sure that we have a very powerful, very strong border… We’re going to keep the families together. I didn’t like the sight, the feeling of families being separated,

Trump said, just before signing the order. After signing, he added,

I think anybody with a heart would feel very strongly about it. We don’t like to see families separated. At the same time, we don’t want people coming into our country illegally. This takes care of the problem.

Earlier in the day he had stated that the order would be matched by legislation from Congress. For instance, Senator Ted Cruz has proposed legislation that would double the number of federal immigration judges, authorize new temporary housing for immigrant families, and limit the processing of asylum cases to no more than two weeks, Fox News reports.

Democrat Chuck Schumer, however, is adamant that no legislation is needed beyond the president’s executive order. However, as the president’s order goes against the 1997 federal agreement, it is likely to draw a lawsuit.

And those they have already ripped apart? The ones where children are still screaming for ‘Mama, Papa”,; of parents tearing their hair, wondering where their babies are?. Do you Pale Northerners have the slightest idea how deeply children are loved among the people “south of the border”?
What are you going to do to reunite those you have already ripped up???

Look at that signature in the photo, looks like the mentally challenge Trump has been banned from pointy objects like Pens or Biro’s seems he can only be trusted with a “sharpy” as the Americans call it, a permanent marker in my home country.

Where in the Executive Order does it state family’s are to be kept together? It says the DHS will follow the law. The EO does not and can not amend existing law.

FACT IS: the (for profit) ‘kiddie jail’ was set up by the Obama administration and the media at the time said NOTHING about it – then comes along Trump and uses the same facilities built by Obama and all hell lets loose in the media. It was wrong of Obama to set it up in the first place AND wrong of Trump to use it as if on steroids. BOTH presidents are wrong on ‘method’ in this instance and I wish the mainstream ‘weepers’ would give viewers the WHOLE picture instead of their bias ‘selective’ outrage! It belittles the cause… Read more »

Strangely media did not mentioned anything of unlawfulness of illegal immigrants focusing instead of their children and no word was utter to blame illegals for bringing with them children posing a risk for them. Another think how to prove that they are their children. Tests must be in place to do so. Why the national media talking down lawfully elected president?

Not necessarily wise move of Mr Trump in view of the whole picture of illegals. Let me be frank. If you want really to stand up to crime you have to put draconian measures in place otherwise you will be taken very lightly. This is a crime to pass the border illegally so what these people who drag with them children think. They simply think that they will be treated leniently as they have been so far and actually encouraging for this procedure and probably I would go even further they do it being instructed to do so by some… Read more »

“Transphobic” Swedish Professor May Lose Job After Noting Biological Differences Between Sexes

A university professor in Sweden is under investigation after he said that there are fundamental differences between men and women which are “biologically founded”

A university professor in Sweden is under investigation for “anti-feminism” and “transphobia” after he said that there are fundamental differences between men and women which are “biologically founded” and that genders cannot be regarded as “social constructs alone,” reports Academic Rights Watch.

For his transgression, Germund Hesslow – a professor of neuroscience at Lund University – who holds dual PhDs in philosophy and neurophysiology, may lose his job – telling RT that a “full investigation” has been ordered, and that there “have been discussions about trying to stop the lecture or get rid of me, or have someone else give the lecture or not give the lecture at all.”

“If you answer such a question you are under severe time pressure, you have to be extremely brief — and I used wording which I think was completely innocuous, and that apparently the student didn’t,” Hesslow said.

Hesslow was ordered to attend a meeting by Christer Larsson, chairman of the program board for medical education, after a female student complained that Hesslow had a “personal anti-feminist agenda.” He was asked to distance himself from two specific comments; that gay women have a “male sexual orientation” and that the sexual orientation of transsexuals is “a matter of definition.”

The student’s complaint reads in part (translated):

I have also heard from senior lecturers that Germund Hesslow at the last lecture expressed himself transfobically. In response to a question of transexuallism, he said something like “sex change is a fly”. Secondly, it is outrageous because there may be students during the lecture who are themselves exposed to transfobin, but also because it may affect how later students in their professional lives meet transgender people. Transpersonals already have a high level of overrepresentation in suicide statistics and there are already major shortcomings in the treatment of transgender in care, should not it be countered? How does this kind of statement coincide with the university’s equal treatment plan? What has this statement given for consequences? What has been done for this to not be repeated? –Academic Rights Watch

After being admonished, Hesslow refused to distance himself from his comments, saying that he had “done enough” already and didn’t have to explain and defend his choice of words.

At some point, one must ask for a sense of proportion among those involved. If it were to become acceptable for students to record lectures in order to find compromising formulations and then involve faculty staff with meetings and long letters, we should let go of the medical education altogether,” Hesslow said in a written reply to Larsson.

He also rejected the accusation that he had a political agenda – stating that his only agenda was to let scientific factnot new social conventions, dictate how he teaches his courses.

Despite Pledge Not to, Germany Approves Sale of Arms to Saudi Arabia

Germany is the latest to renege on promises to ban weapons sales for use in the Yemen War.

Authored by Jason Ditz via AntiWar.com:


With Saudi Arabia forever escalating their war in Yemen, the growing calls by human rights groups to stop selling them arms with which to commit war crimes are struggling to compete with the vast sums of money the Saudis are offering for those arms.

Germany is the latest to renege on promises to ban weapons sales for use in the Yemen War, announcing Wednesday that the Economy Minister has greenlit a new round of artillery systems for sale to the Saudis.

The systems are designed for precise counterattack, and are clearly being bought explicitly to use in Yemen. Yet the Merkel government, as part of its coalition deal, announced a full export ban to “any sides fighting in Yemen,” including the Saudis.

While this was at the time supposed to be a condition of the Social Democrats joining the government. So far, Merkel has not explained why the sale was approved over the putative ban, and the Social Democrats have not complained either.

FBI Had “Two Sets Of Records” On Trump Investigation; Comey, McCabe Implicated: Carter

Sara Carter: FBI/DOJ had ‘two sets of books’ in the Russia investigation.

Published

Journalist Sara Carter told Sean Hannity during his Wednesday radio show that the FBI has two sets of records in the Russia investigation, and that “certain people above Peter Strzok and above Lisa Page” were aware of it – implicating former FBI Director James Comey and his #2, Andrew McCabe.

Hannity: Sara, I’m hearing it gets worse than this–that there is potentially out there–if you will, two sets of record among the upper echelon of the FBI–one that was real one that was made for appearances. Is there any truth to this?

CarterAbsolutely, Sean. With the number of sources that I have been speaking with as well as some others that there is evidence indicating that the FBI had separate sets of books.

I will not name names until all of the evidence is out there, but there were certain people above Peter Strzok and above Lisa Page that were aware of this. I also believe that there are people within the FBI that have actually turned on their former employers and are possibly even testifying and reporting what happened inside the FBI to both the Inspector General and possibly even a Grand Jury.
