Two House Democrats have gone on the record demanding the American government give reparations to illegal aliens who have been separated from their children after crossing the border.
Rep. Pramila Jayapal appeared on MSNBC to talk about her interaction with Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker during a House Judiciary hearing, where she asked him about family separations.
According to Jayapal, those who enter the United States illegally with their children should be given special treatment due to trauma inflicted on the families.
Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) also believes illegal immigrants should receive reparations for their treatment after illegally crossing the U.S. border — since children were separated from lawbreaking adults.
Rep. Crowley tried to blame President Trump, claiming it is the most “reprehensible thing” he has witnessed in his 20 years in the House.
“To have these children depart, separated, is one of the most reprehensible things I’ve ever witnessed in my 20 years of service here in the House of Representatives,” Crowley said on Wednesday.
President Trump has repeatedly dismissed claims that it was his administration that initiated the child separation policy, stating that the policy actually begun under the Obama administration.
During a press conference last Tuesday, Trump stated:
“President Obama separated the children, by the way, just so you understand. President Obama separated the children. Those cages that were shown — I think they were very inappropriate. They were built by President Obama’s administration, not by Trump. President Obama had child separation. Take a look. The press knows it, you know it, we all know it. I’m the one who changed that. I’ll tell you something: once you don’t have [family separation], that’s why you see many more people coming. They are coming like it’s a picnic, like ‘let’s go to Disney Land.’ President Obama separated children, I was the one who changed it.”
Last month, socialist Democrat Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez said Latinos should be exempt from following immigration laws.
Now the Democrats want the American government to grant reparations to illegal immigrants who have broken US law.
This is actually something many Communists believe. America is responsible for third world nations being crap holes, and so we should pay them to make up for it.
Of course, in reality its just another pathetic attempt at Marxist wealth redistribution.
American society must not reward law breakers. If we reward criminality, we will only encourage more of it.
Update: We have updated the headline to make it clear that the call for reparations are for those families separated at the border from their children, and not all illegal aliens crossing the border. We have also updated the article to make it clear that the claim that Obama also separated families at the border has been repeatedly refuted.
