    You say that, and yet you are also provided examples of it not being a uniformly agreed on thing by the Left as a whole.
    It's about like me saying everyone on the Right is a hypocrite who believes the election was stolen from Trump. But that doesn't work, so I rarely even use the term "Right" to describe the Right and instead try to keep it more specific.

    I didn't support them then and I certainly don't support them now.

    I still wonder if the children separated from their parents in the last four years will ever see them again.

    That's where the criticism lies with Trump compared to Obama. It was a Trump admin policy to remove children from parents as a deterrent.
    The incompetence has now led to children who can't find parents. You'll blame the parents.

    The children are being seperated from the parents by the parents.
    This is what you get with a dufus mandating border security.
    Report: 117% increase in children 12 and younger crossing border alone
    Please explain what is to be done with those children.
    Got an idea.......have all of those that see dufus's border policy as right take them in.
    How many do you plan to personlly support (out of your pocket, not with our tax money)

    I called it, blame the parents. Blame the parents for participating in legal migration. Some aren't there for asylum reasons, but that didn't matter. Whether the immigration was by legal means or not, your children are gone.
    You need to work on empathy and stop seeing race.
    The children on their own are to be detained in holding facilities. Like normal.

    Failed to answer the hard questions again.... What are you planning to do with those children 12 and under?
    They can't work. So guess we taxpayers have to support them.
    Yeah, I have little or no empathy and race has nothing to do with it. They will be a burden on this country.

    I don't plan to do anything with them. There's a process when entering the US. Let the process play it's course. You should ask the kids your questions.
    How would they get support if they aren't working?
    Of course you don't have empathy, you're in the conservative culture. You do see race. Because your opinion would be different given different races being put in the same position.

    So what do you suggest we do with legal resident children under the age of 12, who has no guardians and caretakers?

    What knowledge do you have of the current legal laws concerning unaccompanied minor illegal immigrants.

    Here is a the picture of the facilities used by the Trump administration: These photos were the Trump administration’s attempt to quiet criticism. They’re only increasing critics’ horror. There also were other pictures taken that have been shown. On top of this, the Trump administration would not let most members of Congress to see these facilities nor allow any photographs by reporters.

    Again, the motives of the two administrations [Obama & Trump] were simply not the same, so using "false equivalencies" simply is simply not dealing with the Truth.
