"Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform," -Stephanie Grisham, communications director for First Lady Melania Trump
The only person who had the power to resolve the issue was Donald Trump, because, despite his repeated attempts to pin the blame on Democrats, the Democrats had nothing to do with the policy. The only way this makes sense as anything but a continuation of that lie is as a call to action to impeach Trump, which...

And, sure enough, Trump signed an executive order reversing the administration's position on separating families on Thursday. Over 2000 children were separated from their parents in the meantime, and it's likely that many of them won't be reunited for a long time yet.

Well, it's mid-September now, and the POTUS is back at it again with the problem causing...
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was allegedly sexually assaulted 30 years ago at a high school party by supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Dr. Ford claims that the nominee had pinned her down, and started groping her. According to Ford, when she attempted to call for help, he covered her mouth to prevent that. She had suppressed these memories and been to therapists to help with the mental trauma, but 30 years later, when she heard he was being nominated to be a Justice in the Supreme Court, she sent an anonymous letter to the senate, informing them that he sexually assaulted her, and would need to be evaluated. She included great detail in this letter, to the point that they had to ask her if she wanted to testify against him. She agreed, although it would put her under heavy scrutiny. Kavanaugh denies all claims that he did indeed sexually assault this woman, and that he wasn't even at that party. Dr. Ford called for an official FBI investigation to clear up the facts, and to bring up nothing but the truth. The Republican party refused to allow it, and moved the hearing to this next Monday. Refering to not allowing the FBI investigation, Trump responded with, "The FBI doesn't do that sort of thing." Trump, being the president of the United States, has full power to order the investigation on his own. In regards to the hearing date, Trump stated that "If she comes to the hearing, and testifies, it will definitely be interesting to hear, but if she doesn't make it... That will be unfortunate."
Thoughts, anyone?

{Sorry for semi-necropost; but I do want to give my opinion on the matter}

I don't know enough about the situation that Zavier mentioned; however about the immigration thing my stance is that if the country has a law about immigration, and you break that law, the country has every right and obligation to remove you from the country. Yes, you may be doing it out of desperation, however if the country's laws prohibit you from doing what you're doing then they must deport you, no matter what the moral implications of it are.

Does this mean Trump's actions are justified? No, not really; but from what I can tell his stance on it is that he's trying to defend the laws put in place by his predecessors and is getting rid of loopholes within those laws.

He locked the children of refugees in a concentration camp to try to scare other refugees into not coming to the border to request asylum. The policy that lead him to do this was one he put in place.

He wanted to put troops on the border with guns to shoot at refugees as they attempted to enter into the United States to request asylum. He did this solely for a political stunt to boost his polling numbers for the Midterms.

The dude is xenophobic as sin.

If they want to request asylum they should do so at the checkpoints. Y'know, the legal way.

That is hard to do when ICE isn’t allowing you to reach the checkpoint, or ports of entry are simply turning you away, or if you somehow manage to reach the ports the legal way without US border agents turning you away before you can reach a port of entry you are then faced with a purposefully lengthy process.

Our current administration is making it hard on purpose to legally request asylum, that’s what so many people are crossing illegally as its their only actual option to get away from the things that are threatening their lives.

Personally I find this whole thing just to be a temporary thing. Practically every President tries to get rid of the previous President's accomplishments so for me its simply a matter of time. Orange Man Bad but Orange man is temporary, and his rules are as well, but that's just stating the obvious now isn't it?
Meh.

When you definitely understand how politics and policies impact the lives of people today as well as several decades down the road.
