One would think that, despite having opposing political beliefs, people could agree that children should not be separated from their parents.
Yet President Trump, whose own mother was a Scottish immigrant, says that Democrats want illegal immigrants to “infest our country.”
But that hasn’t swayed conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren, who evidently believes Border Patrol agents are humanitarians. Which only proves that the former TV host does not actually know the definition of “humanitarian.”
Don’t buy into the Left’s emotional blackmail. These “family units” are often human traffickers, drug smugglers and cartel separated from “their children.” Our border patrol agents are not cold-hearted monsters- more often than not they are humanitarians.
