Crying Honduran Child Who Became The Face Of Border Family Separation Was Never Separated From Family


Reported by Julia Nista | General Assignment Reporter | 2:12 AM 06/22/2018

She has become the poster child for family separation at the border — and the subsequent moral outrage against the Trump administration — but the crying Honduran child held up as a heartbreaking example of family separation at the border was, in fact, never separated from the parent with whom she illegally crossed the border into the U.S.

The two-year-old girl, Yanela, and her mother, Sandra, were detained in Texas after attempting to cross the Rio Grande river, and were held together.

“I know now that they are not in danger. They are safer now than when they were making that journey to the border,” Denis Javier Varela Hernandez told The Daily Mail of his daughter Yanela and wife Sandra. Hernandez also said the two were doing “fine.”

Hernandez added that he heard through family members his daughter and wife were not separated at the border when caught by Border Patrol.

“I don’t have any resentment for my wife, but I do think it was irresponsible of her to take the baby with her in her arms because we don’t know what could happen,” Hernandez said of Sandra and Yanela’s attempt to cross the border, adding that he would not attempt the trip himself.

The photo of Yanela crying has surged across various media outlets as a way to pinpoint the Trump administration for separating families at the border. TIME magazine recently came out with a photo of Trump staring down at the little Honduran girl.

However, as her father stated, the little girl was never actually separated from her mother as they both attempted to cross the border, making the TIME cover misleading at best.

“‘I wouldn’t risk my life for it,” Hernandez said of the journey to immigrate into the U.S. “It’s hard to find a good job here and that’s why many people choose to leave. But I thank God that I have a good job here. And I would never risk my life making that journey.”

Watch: Border Agent Expertly Flips Script on CNN, Leaves Host Speechless

The establishment media’s narrative is clear: President Donald Trump is inhumane and is separating families trying to illegally cross the border because he is a monster.

People across Twitter have picked up on the claims, and Peter Fonda even called for people to “rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage” so that Melania Trump will “stand up” to her husband.

So, it’s not okay for children who are not citizens of this country to be taken from their parents who have broken the law, but it’s totally okay to kidnap the president’s son and put him in a cage? Sounds a little hypocritical to me.

But CNN quickly ran into a roadblock when they tried to get a border patrol agent to admit that the conditions the kids were being kept in at the border were horrific.

Brooke Baldwin interviewed Chris Cabrera, a spokesperson for the National Border Patrol Council, on CNN Tuesday to grill him on “these children being ripped from their parents,” The Daily Caller reported.

“I understand where you’re coming from. I don’t think everybody understands what is actually happening down here. You have a lot of these kids that are coming here and put through terrible, terrible situations by their parents. They are brought over in extremely dangerous conditions and extremely dangerous terrain,” Cabrera said.

All this could be avoided if they just go through the port of entry. There would be no crime committed by them and they wouldn’t get separated. Why they don’t do this is beyond me, but this problem is very easily solved, at least on the short-term basis, by going through the port of entry. If they choose to go through the (Rio Grande) river, they’re committing a crime just like anyone else and they’re subject to arrest. And we know when you get arrested, you don’t get to stay with your family.”

Baldwin tries to break it down so that it looks like the illegal immigrants are the victims, and Cabrera clarifies that crossing the Rio Grande is illegal for both U.S. citizens and immigrants. She then asked about delays for asylum seekers and families being turned away at a port of entry with an “indefinite delay.”

Cabrera replies that that is exactly the problem. “We’ve had this situation going on for four years now. I don’t think you can necessarily blame it on one administration or the other. It started under one and is continuing under another. It hasn’t been fixed and it needs to be fixed.”

As Baldwin tries to interrupt, the border patrol agent continued, “Right now we have this beacon of, ‘We’ll leave the light on for you and let you come illegally into the country.’ If you’ve seen some of the stuff we’ve seen, you’d understand how important it is to have a tough stance to divert people from coming here.”

He then tells Baldwin about the horrors these children face because immigrants have been allowed to “take advantage of this system.”

“When you see a 12-year-old girl with a plan B pill, her parents put her on birth control because they know getting violated is part of the journey, that’s a terrible way to live. When you see a 4-year-old girl traveling alone with just her parents’ phone number written across her shirt. Something needs to be done. We had a 9-year-old boy have heat stroke in front of us and die with no family around. That’s because we’re allowing people to continue take advantage of this system.”

It is on Congress, Cabrera pointed out, to change these laws and get these problems fixed.

“They need to come in there, they need to get to work and they need to change this law,” he said. “Until then, us as border patrol agents, we have a duty to enforce these laws and we will continue to do it until they change this law and hopefully they will.”

Baldwin responded to these horrors and this call to Congress by asking for reassurance that the kids America is outraged about are being treated humanely, looking one last time to put the agent into a corner. And Cabrera flips the narrative again.

“I can tell you with absolute certainty that they are being treated humanely. Most of our agents are parents. I’ve seen guys, and I’ve done it myself, you give your last bottle of water to a kid, you’ll take a toy out of your car to give to one of these kids because you know the situation they’re in,” Cabrera said.

“Agents are very sympathetic. We’re human, we’re fathers, we have families. We do a lot for the communities here, whether or not a camera is involved. Our agents are very involved. And nobody saves more lives along the southwestern border than the U.S. Border patrol.”

So, it looks like the border patrol agents are not evil monsters after all. Cabrera makes a good point, despite what your opinions are about the situation, it is up to the lawmakers to make any changes. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has drafted executive orders for Trump to sign that wouldn’t end the zero-tolerance policy, but would instead try to keep families together while they are detained.

At least the Trump administration is trying to do something. Congressional Democrats, it’s your move.

This Weeks Ann Coulter Letter: “Google ‘Internet,’ Media!”


Commentary by Ann Coulter  | 

URL of the original posting site: http://humanevents.com/2018/06/20/google-internet-media/

Journalists know absolutely nothing about immigration and refuse to learn, so when I cited the fraudulent “humanitarian” cases on TV Sunday night, I footnoted myself live on air, citing a New Yorker article as well as my book, “Adios, America,” which has nearly 100 pages of footnotes. That should make it easy for even the stupidest reporters.You haven’t met The Hill’s Jacqueline Thomsen! She was at a loss. The New Yorker? What’s that? Jacqueline thought and thought and thought, until her head hurt! Finally, she decided, as she wrote in The Hill, “It’s unclear what New Yorker article Coulter was referring to.”

Armed only with the information that there was an article in a tiny little publication known as “The New Yorker” about asylum applicants being coached on their fake asylum claims, how could an American reporter ever hope to locate “The Asylum Seeker” in the Aug. 1, 2011, New Yorker? Forget “Adios, America,” where it is cited, along with many, many other sources. I can’t read a BOOK, Thomsen thought to herself.

I Googled “New Yorker asylum,” and the article I was referring to came up as the third item in the list. Add “coaching” or “coached,” and it’s the very first item Google gives you. It took 3 seconds.

Thomsen: HOW DOES GOOGLE WORK, ANYWAY?

The New Yorker article begins with “Caroline,” an illegal alien from a middle-class family in Africa, who passed herself off to U.S. immigration authorities as a victim of rape and torture. As she admitted to The New Yorker, while giggling: “I have never been raped.” Fortunately, “Caroline had been tutored in how to act like a rape victim by her landlady in the Bronx, who hadn’t been raped, either, but had successfully applied for asylum.”

As she prepared to weep and lie through her interview with a very tough American immigration officer about her nonexistent torture and rape, Caroline said of the country she was lying her way into: “I don’t know why I didn’t just go back. They are racists and xenophobes here.”

Glad to have you, too, Caroline! (At least you’d make a better reporter than Thomsen.)Luckily, we have the very best government officials reviewing asylum applications. (Pasted on the window of one immigration official’s office was a cover from the official Cuban Communist newspaper.) Caroline’s completely apocryphal asylum application was, naturally, approved.

Our immigration officials are so thorough, so hard to fool, that they granted Beatrice Munyenyezi asylum and citizenship, allowing her and her kids to live off the U.S. taxpayers for 10 years before federal prosecutors noticed, Hey! Munyenyezi wasn’t a victim of the Rwandan genocide; she was a perpetrator! Munyenyezi had personally sentenced thousands of Rwandan women and children to death.

And now the poor murderess has been SEPARATED FROM HER CHILDREN!

Crack reporter Thomsen must have missed that story, too. For her reading pleasure, assuming she can read: Chris McGreal, “Rwandan woman stripped of U.S. citizenship after lying about genocide,” The Guardian, Feb. 22, 2013.

One asylum applicant written about in The New York Times claimed she was being persecuted in Russia because she was gay. She told her immigration lawyer, “I’m not gay at all. I don’t even like gay people.” (For ace Hill reporter Thomsen, who is hopelessly confused about “books” and “Google,” the cite is: Sam Dolnick, “Asylum Ploys Play Off News to Open Door,” The New York Times, July 12, 2011.)

Usually, frauds are only exposed when the asylum applicant makes the news. You’d think one of these times, an asylee would become famous and we’d find out: Hey, this person really was fleeing persecution!

Nope. The pattern is: They make the news; we find out their asylum applications were total frauds.

Here are a few:

Ramzi Yousef was the mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the Bojinka plot, as well as the nephew of 9/11 architect Khalid Sheik Mohammed. Poor Yousef almost didn’t make it through customs. Not only was his own passport of dubious provenance, but his traveling companion was carrying bomb manuals, car bombing videos — and instructions on how to lie to U.S. immigration inspectors. Yousef claimed asylum and was released into our country to execute the first WTC attack.

Sofitel hotel maid Nafissatou Diallo falsely accused the head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, of rape. She had been granted asylum after memorizing a tape given to her by an American immigration activist about being gang raped in Guinea. (For Jackie “How does Google work?” Thomsen: That’s from the same Times article cited above.)

Amadou Diallo was all over the news after being killed by four New York City police officers in 1999. Only because of that, we found that, in his asylum application, he had claimed his parents had been murdered by the Mauritanian government. APPROVED! In fact, Diallo was born into a prosperous Guinean family and his parents were alive and well — and looking for a settlement from New York taxpayers. (For super reporter Thomsen, you’ll find that story here: Alan Feuer, “$3 Million Deal in Police Killing of Diallo in ’99,” The New York Times, Jan. 7, 2004.)

America is the most generous country on Earth, but — as The New York Times’ John Tierney demonstrated 20 years ago — even denizens of the “nicest” town lose patience when the third panhandler asks them for money. (For reporters who couldn’t find their asses if you drew them a map: John Tierney, “Mean Streets,” The New York Times, May 12, 1996.)

Our country is being victimized by a network of con-artist foreigners and America-hating left-wingers passing out fake papers, fake stories and fake scripts to Third-Worlders, who lie about seeking “asylum” to get in on the American gravy train and wreck our country.

And that’s in normal times.

The crisis on the border today is no ordinary asylum fraud. It’s a political stunt by a left-wing organization, “Pueblo Sin Fronteras” — People Without Borders — which believes, as its name suggests, that the U.S.A. has no right to have a border. This group has very publicly marched hordes of Latin Americans through thousands of miles of another country to demand entry into our country. Pueblo Sin Fronteras’ monthlong trek has been so well publicized that everyone in the country knows about it — except, apparently, our media.

The New York Times describes the horror thus: “At some border crossings, migrants are being forced to wait for days or longer in Mexico.”

Wait. Why don’t they just stay in Mexico? Isn’t Mexico a fantastic country with ZERO rapists? If not, maybe we should build something at the border — I don’t know, maybe a wall?

Wall” is a one-syllable word, so even Jacqueline Thomsen can understand that.

Border Ranchers Shock MSNBC With Facts On Illegal Immigration


Reported by Amber Athey | Media and Breaking News

A husband and wife who ranch on the Rio Grande river told MSNBC on Tuesday that they believe President Trump is doing the right thing by enforcing border laws.

MSNBC tried to ask the couple a multitude of leading questions about the separation of families when they cross the border illegally, but the ranchers continuously smashed their narrative.

“When you see parents and children separated why do you support the policy that, to many people, appears to be heartless?” MSNBC’s Kerry Sanders asked.

Sanders asked Stephanie Cage, “You’re a mother, you’re a grandmother of seven, um, how do you react when you see that the families are being split apart?”

“Of course it is very upsetting, but I’m as equally upset with the parents for exposing their children to the dangers of smuggling their children across the border,” Cage replied.

The Cage family also debunked the notion that the vast majority of illegal immigrants are fleeing violence, retorting, “That’s very much exaggerated … very few cases are caused by that, I think most of them are coming over here to try to make a better life in this country and all this country has to offer.”
