Statement from the Candidate

In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

Trump Check: Trump Is Tearing Families Apart? Really?

Jorge Ramos was on Sean Hannity’s show the other night and dramatically tore up a picture of a Mexican family, then blamed the destruction of that family on Donald Trump and the recent arrest of persons known to be criminals here illegally. Ramos seemed to be suggesting that no criminals should ever be apprehended and imprisoned for their crimes because they may have children who need them. One would then rejoin that maybe the criminals should have thought of their children before they committed the crime. But Mr. Ramos is, of course, also insinuating that no illegal aliens should be punished for anything.

As President Trump continues to keep his promises and do what the American people want done, by rounding up criminals who don’t deserve to be here and don’t appreciate the value of being here, liberals complain, as they have in the past, about the destruction to immigrant families who are now illegally in America, as family members are arrested. This idiotic argument could be made about any American family that suffers when a bad actor in their midst breaks the law and is subsequently put in jail. Should Americans treat illegal aliens criminals differently from our own citizens and give them a pass when they break laws?

Liberals have long pulled their hair and shrieked when an illegal is sent back home to their country of origin, claiming the sin of separating family members from each other, when nearly all illegal aliens had to pull the family apart when coming here in the first place, and they had to disrupt the lives of spouses and children as they left their home country and their spoken language and came to a foreign country where the language and many of the customs of Americans is much different from the old country.

Mr. Ramos, a little common sense would help you make a more digestible point, and then maybe you’d be taken seriously for a change instead of being laughed at.
