John McCain just launched a new vicious attack on President Trump
Once again, Senator John McCain finds himself aligned with the extreme leftwing media, Chuck Schumer, and Nancy Pelosi.
Since the 2016 election, John McCain has slandered and viciously attacked President Trump and his agenda. He even voted against the repeal of Obamacare.
But his latest attack on Trump revealed what a hypocrite he really is.
Liberals’ heads are popping off over the illegal immigrant children being separated from their parents during short criminal proceedings.
Trump hasn’t changed any rules, he’s just simply enforcing the laws already on the books.
John McCain has been in the U.S. Senate for three decades and had every chance to fix this issue. But instead he chose to attack Trump at a politically convenient time.
The administration’s current family separation policy is an affront to the decency of the American people, and contrary to principles and values upon which our nation was founded. The administration has the power to rescind this policy. It should do so now.

It appears that Senator McCain has bought into the mass hysteria that fake news outlets (such as MSNBC) is creating.
Kasie Hunt of MSNBC also took to Twitter to spread fake news and attack the President on the latest immigration debate.
Congress did not create this problem.
Congress did NOT create this problem.
CONGRESS DID NOT CREATE THIS PROBLEM.
The Trump administration created this problem.
THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION CREATED THIS PROBLEM.

Apparently she believes if you yell something “loud” enough on Twitter it will become true.
Since Kasie Hunt refuses to report the facts regarding the Trump administration’s immigration policies, we will do her job for her.
The National Review sums it up nicely:
For the longest time, illegal immigration was driven by single males from Mexico. Over the last decade, the flow has shifted to women, children, and family units from Central America…
The Trump administration isn’t changing the rules that pertain to separating an adult from the child. Those remain the same. Separation happens only if officials find that the adult is falsely claiming to be the child’s parent, or is a threat to the child, or is put into criminal proceedings.
It’s the last that is operative here. The past practice had been to give a free pass to an adult who is part of a family unit. The new Trump policy is to prosecute all adults. The idea is to send a signal that we are serious about our laws and to create a deterrent against re-entry. (Illegal entry is a misdemeanor, illegal re-entry a felony.)
As you can see, the hysteria over this alleged cruelty is greatly exaggerated. In fact, typically when these adults are prosecuted they are returned to their families on the same day.
However, the “mainstream media” refuses to report the facts. The media and the Democrats are using immigrant children as pawns to attack the President.
These pathetic attacks are falling flat.
