Laura Bush had no issue with her husband “permanently separating” hundreds of thousands of families from their loves ones in the Middle East in a war based on lies, but she’s outraged by the US government separating children from their illegal immigrant parents caught invading America.
Though Obama did the same for years, for some reason she only cares about it now that it’s a rallying point for #TheResistance.
Former first lady Laura Bush spoke out Sunday night about the separation of families on the US border, writing a harsh criticism of the current zero-tolerance immigration policy being enforced under the Trump administration.
Bush, whose opinion piece ran in The Washington Post, decries the separation of children from parents entering the United States illegally as “cruel” and “immoral.”
It’s a rare public admonishment of current administration policy from Bush, who has seldom weighed in on politics since her husband left office.
Translation: no one gives a s**t about ¡Jeb! or George saying this so they had Laura do it.
It was a 1997 Supreme Court ruling which said illegal immigrant minors could not be held in detention like adults. Criminals are separated from their children in jails across America and the world.
“I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart,” Bush writes.
Killing all those people in Iraq when Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11 was cruel, immoral, and violated international boundaries.
