A liberal guest on MSNBC declared over the weekend that President Donald Trump must be impeached for using the exact same immigration policy as former President Barack Obama.
On Sunday’s “Up with David Gura” on MSNBC, NPR’s Maria Hinojosa suggested that Trump should be impeached for separating illegal immigrant families and putting children in “cages.”
So impeachment is about the abuse of power, right? And I agree with you: I think that a lot of people just think impeachment, all of a sudden he’s going to be removed. No, it’s a process, right? But my question is: Again, sorry to go back to this, but sometimes I have to continue to say this, but is it an abuse of power to take babies and putting them into cages?
Is it an abuse of power? Is that an impeachable offense? In other words, we’re talking about impeachment in this one small construct, but actually what this President has done — if we look, from his own words — has been a continual abuse of power. So, for me, I understand the difficulties of the political conversation, but, you know, again, I became a citizen, right? I had to lift up my — swear to the oath. So I’m like: Do your job, members of Congress. This is your job.
She went on to decry: “I know it’s scary — we don’t know what’s going to happen. Well, that’s what it looks like to live in a democracy. Well, let’s try and keep it a democracy, so do your job and do your accountability.”
Of course, no one on the liberal panel asked if Obama also deserved to be impeached over his treatment of the illegal aliens in U.S. custody.
Many in the liberal media have been peddling disgraceful falsehoods about the Trump administration’s immigration policies, claiming officials are caging children and abusing them.
Aside from that being completely false, this is nothing more than the latest manufactured crisis from the open borders lobby.
If Democrats cared so much about immigration and temporarily separating some children at the border from their parents — which is done to ensure they aren’t being smuggled or trafficked by criminals — then why did they remain quiet for eight years when Obama was doing it?
