No. The law does not require zero tolerance. As I stated elsewhere, the Attorney General has broad prosecutorial discretion whether to charge someone or not.  And what to charge then with. That’s why people can plea bargain. For example. the prosecutor can drop the murder charge in exchange for the lesser included offense of manslaughter, if the defendant testifies against his accomplice.   Other prosecutors decide not to press certain charges, or they drop others, because they are balancing the use of state resources vs. the severity of the crime.

 

Sessions was never required to go zero tolerance. Of course, he certainly has the authority to do so.

It will certainly be interesting to see what Trump signs because, as I said below, he is following the law as he is required to do by the Constitution. And, according to the Constitution, ONLY Congress can make or change law. The President cannot. The President can only use Executive Action to implement or enforce the law. That was a Supreme Court ruling when they overturned an Executive Action. So, unless Trump finds some way to get around that, any Executive Action he signs will be challenged on court by someone who disagrees with it and when it is it will be overturned. The problem can ONLY be solved Congress. Unfortunately, liberals everywhere, including in Congress, would rather whine about it than actually do something about it and EVERYBODY who has an intelligence at all understands they are doing it for political purposes at the expense of children. Shame on them.

 

Over and over and over liberals keep telling us how bad Trump is for his policy of separating children from their parents. But there is no such policy. The Zero-Tolerance policy issued by Attorney General Jeff Sessions simply states that U.S. Code 8 U.S.C. § 1325(a) will be enforced. That's it. That's the policy. If you want to verify that, it's easy enough to google. U.S. Code 8 U.S.C. § 1325(a) simply states that both attempted illegal entry and illegal entry into the United States by an alien is prohibited and defines the penalty, which includes both fines and imprisonment. That's it. That's the law. If you want to verify that, it's easy enough to google. The Constitution requires the President to "take care that the Laws be faithfully executed." I would hope most citizens of this country are familiar with the Constitution, but for anyone who is ignorant of what it says, that too can be googled. So, in truth, the REAL Trump policy is to enforce the law as required by the Constitution.

Back in Mexico where they belong. Bus trip back won't cost taxpayers $35,000 each year either!

 

Will still have zero tolerance, but he knows the Democrats wants an open boarder. He always has to add what bad things the Dem. say or want or do to blame them.

Dems need open borders to build their party up!


 


Can’t put them in Mexico because most aren’t Mexican.  These folks are coming from Central America.


Did they enter via Mexico? If so, return them there. Let them walk back to Central America. The libs don't want families separated and I don't either and I sure don't want to be spending our tax money ($35K/year) housing these illegal aliens.


Doesn’t work that way. Do you think Africa is a country too?

They aren't from Mexico. They come from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, three of the poorest countries on the planet. The drug and arms dealers, sex traffickers, and other criminal syndicates have a stranglehold on those weak governments, and the poor people are easy victims.

 

The arms that power the gangs, the cartels, the syndicates come from  - guess where?

 

We aren't sending our best either.

Just to point out that Trump has been trying to blame the Democrats for the mess he created with this executive order. He stated he was unable to fix it (the same way he created it). So, what we have is another case of Trump lying in public. 

 

 


The EO to start following the law?
