We have already heard over and over again that Republicans are worried about the Optics. The are nervous ripping families apart might have a negative political impact. Republicans are shocked and surprised that anyone cares. Hey, the immigrants are brown. Their kids are brown. What's the big deal? Remember when Republicans let CHIP lapse so they could use those children for political purposes? This was from Mitch McConnell: Using children for political purposes is nothing new for Republicans. If they do this to American children, then why would they care about brown foreign children running for their lives? If Republicans do anything to stop this insanity, it will be because of political pressure. Even in the midst of this awful, they keep lying by saying "Democrats want open borders" while at the same time, insisting Obama deported more than any president in history. Politically, will this "having it both ways" work for the GOP? Saying Democrats want open borders yet deported the most people?
