tRump: Using Children As Hostages

Wow what a guy, using children as hostages to get his way. I bet he sleeps really well at night.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has told congressional leaders that his hard-line immigration priorities must be enacted in exchange for extending protection from deportation to hundreds of thousands of young immigrants, many of whom were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.

Trump’s list of demands included overhauling the country’s green-card system, a crackdown on unaccompanied minors entering the country, and building his promised wall along the southern border.

Many were policies Democrats have said explicitly are off the table and threaten to derail ongoing negotiations over legislation protecting young immigrants known as “Dreamers.” They had been given a reprieve from deportation and the ability to work legally in the country under President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, which Trump ended last month.

tRump is having the worst time communicating compassion and empathy because he's a psychotic and psychotics have none of those things. People die in massacres, people homeless after hurricanes and all he can talk about his the praise he SHOULD be getting just for being in office. He likes to remind everyone about that a WINNER he is, and yet the only thing he's winning has nothing to do with helping the public.

This is a shining case in point: the vast majority of people have sympathy for immigrant children brought to the US, but instead of working WITH public sentiment and capitalizing on it, he's going to use it as a bargaining chip, use these children's FUTURE as a way to pour more pain and horror into the system.

The immigration system, like all systems, could use renovation but nothing useful gets done at the point of a gun. President DICKtater has yet to figure that out. I guess his deals aren't very artful after all, not without a ghostwriter and an entire press corps making up "fake news" a la Himmler...
