The Trump administration had markedly different reactions to the Las Vegas Route 91/Harvest Festival shooting and yesterday’s truck attack in New York City.
After Las Vegas, it wasn’t the time to discuss gun control policy. But after yesterday’s attack, apparently it’s the perfect time to discuss immigration policy, as well as attack Senator Chuck Schumer.
Here are segments from the White House press briefing, the day after each event.
Let’s not kid ourselves. The detention and possible deportation of 10-year-old Rosamaria Hernandez is not just an accident or oversight on the part of immigration agents.
It is intentionally done to instill fear and apprehension into the undocumented community. Which can have deadly consequences, if people are so afraid of being apprehended by immigration agents that they avoid seeking medical treatment.
It is a disgrace that this is what America has become. If anti-immigrant people saw this child as a person and not a dehumanized number or statistic, they might have a harder time justifying this despicable action on the part of our government.
