But Democrats in Congress refuse to act. They won’t change the regulations to allow families to remain together in custody, and they won’t provide the funding necessary to keep detained families in some level of comfort. Instead, they snipe at the supposed cruelty of the Trump administration, which simply seeks to end the policy of “catch and release” that results in hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants remaining indefinitely in the country.This week, Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, revealed the truth about the Democratic agenda: It’s not about compassion at all, but about politics. “Tough doesn’t equal smart,” Perez stated. “Tough equals dumb.” The only truly dumb thing is continuing to play politics with the lives of people crossing the border illegally and American citizens being forced to cope with the price of illegal immigration.
