Liberals have been up in arms over the past few weeks over the immigration issues at the U.S. border with Mexico. Much of the liberal criticism has been leveled at Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, but she just made an announcement that indicates that she will not be backing down.
“We have to do our job,” Nielsen just said, according to Right Wing News. “We will not apologize for doing our job. We have sworn to do this job. This administration has a simple message.”
When asked about the liberal reports that the DHS is keeping “kids in cages,” Nielsen fired back by telling the truth.
“It is important to note that these minors are very well taken care of. Don’t believe the press,” she said. “They are very well taken care of. You know this, as many of you have detention facilities of your own. We operate according to some of the highest standards in the country. We provide food, medical, education, and all needs that the child requests.”
She then send a brutal message to all illegal aliens.
“If you cross the border illegally, we will prosecute you,” she said. “If you make a false immigration claim, we will prosecute you. If you smuggle illegal aliens across an extraordinarily dangerous journey, we will prosecute you.” Thank you for saying it!”
This misreporting by Members, press & advocacy groups must stop. It is irresponsible and unproductive. As I have said many times before, if you are seeking asylum for your family, there is no reason to break the law and illegally cross between ports of entry.

We’re so glad to see that the Trump administration is not backing down to this liberal nonsense!
