HIRONO: Mr. Albence, would you send your children to FRCs?

ALBENCE: Again, I think we’re missing the point. These individuals are there because they have broken a law. There has to be a process —

HIRONO: They have broken a law but only as deemed so by the president with his —

ALBENCE: No ma’am. They are there for violation of Title 8 of the U.S. Nationality Act — Okay? — U.S.C. 1325. That’s illegal entry is both a criminal and civil violation. They are in those FRCs pending the outcome of that civil immigration process. They have broken the law.

HIRONO: Well, these are mainly — my understanding is that under zero-tolerance, these are no longer civil proceedings, but in fact were criminal proceedings.

ALBENCE: They were criminal proceedings when the Border Patrol prosecuted them. But at the conclusion of that process, once the individual came into ICE custody, they would go through administrative proceedings.

HIRONO: I’m confused.

Wow ......

I don't pretend to know much about local Hawaii politics but, looks like they got their own Sheila Jackson-Lee D, (TX).

How could someone run for office and be that damn clueless?

Most 5th graders have a better understanding of immigration laws in this Country.

How does that happen?

She needs to stop watching CNN.

Only the Democrat Party.

You can quit trying to put perfume on Trumps child ripping directive, no one is buying it.
This thread is about a Senator in Hawaii who doesn't understand immigration law.

Please participate accordingly and don't do the usual thread derail thing.

Bullshit, many of those kids were ripped from parents trying to claim asylum( not illegal), and you are a liar if you deny it.

So some kids were ripped from parents trying to cross illegally and others were ripped from families seeking legal asylum, you are deceitfully trying to paint them as all being illegals trying to sneak across the border to promote your agenda.

What was confusing about that exchange?

The enforcement policy, the zero tolerance, separate the kids form their parents bullshit is, or was, the policy of the Trump administration. Where does someone say the president made this law?

"They have broken a law but only as deemed so by the president"

Does that sound like someone who understands US Immigration Law to you?

Before you respond, let me remind you that the President didn't write or sign into law Title 8 of the U.S. Nationality Act or U.S.C. 1325.

Those laws were already in place when the President was elected.

When was the law passed that made it legal to rip kids away from immigrants seeking asylum?

There is no such law and ripping kids from immigrants seeking asylum never happened.

You are parroting fake news.

The children who are in the FRC's are children of people who have entered the Country illegally.

Not asylum seekers.

Asylum seekers do not have to enter the Country illegally.

They have a legal right to enter.

It sounds like someone that understands the **** president opted to have the laws enforced in a manner that was fairly fucked up, that being the zero tolerance and separation.

There seems to be a level of obtuseness and ignorance among Turmp fans, present company excluded, where the totally fail to realize that the level of enforcement of these laws are dictated by the administration, in pretense that Turmp had no other option when fucking reality clearly said he did. Clearly Breitbart is providing intellectual masturbatory fodder for these people in that article.

And you are denial of reality. I just don't know if it is because you don't know any better, or do know, and are just lying to promote your ideology.
