San Diego County could become a site where tens of thousands of migrants would be housed indefinitely by the U.S. government under the zero-tolerance immigration policy implemented by President Trump.
According to a report published Friday by Time magazine, military leaders are drawing up plans to create a tent city at Camp Pendleton to detain as many as 47,000 migrants from Central America and other locations…
…Officials at Camp Pendleton said they know nothing about the project.
“Camp Pendleton is unaware of any plan to house detainees on our base,” Capt Luke Weaver said in a statement.
Um, wait. What? It’s almost like Hair Furher is winging it?
On Wednesday morning, the president asked for a document that would — at least temporarily — reunite parents and children separated by his administration’s zero tolerance immigration policy. That afternoon, over the objections of several of his senior advisers and lawyers, he signed an order that had been dashed together in a matter of hours…
…At agencies from the Department of Homeland Security to the Department of Justice and the Department of Defense, which has been asked to help house illegal immigrants and their children, officials say they remain uncertain how to carry out an order they aren’t sure is legal in the first place.
OK, so it is FUBAR as usual.
The Department of Health and Human Services on Friday created an “unaccompanied children reunification task force,” a first step toward reunifying thousands of migrant children in the agency’s custody with their families, according to an internal document obtained by POLITICO.
The task force was established by the assistant secretary for preparedness and response — the arm of the agency that responds to public health disasters, and an indication that the challenge of reunifying thousands of families is likely beyond the capabilities of the refugee office.
Jeebus. One wonders if Comrade Stupid knows that by kidnapping these children for his vile political purposes to leverage funding for his stupid wall, he’s creating a new generation of Dreamers, you know, immigrant kids who were brought and raised here through no fault of their own.
