‘It’s like Disneyland now!’ Trump says the border region looks like an amusement park since America stopped separating migrant families, because ‘ten times’ more people are trying to cross over from Mexico…(It Begins…4 Back To Back Attacks…)

President Trump says so many families are sneaking into the U.S. since the end of a policy separating children from adults that ‘it’s like Disneyland’
Court orders keep the U.S. from housing illegal immigrant children more than 20 days in custody
Existing laws and regulations prohibit housing most children in the same facilities as detained adults
The resulting conflict forces the release of the children and the men and women who bring them into the U.S., pending court hearings that many of them skip
Trump wants Congress to change the laws but Democrats are resistant

President Donald Trump said Sunday that a flood of family units streaming into the U.S. from Mexico has made the border region look like an amusement park.

The administration recently stopped its earlier practice at the border of separating adults without documents from children they bring into the U.S. The policy was meant to comply with a court ruling that required the government to house children it apprehended, and with existing law that prohibits keeping them in the same facility as adults.

But with dwindling bed space a constant issue, and a court ruling that limits children’s detention to 20 days, that practice has largely ended – resulting the president said in a Fox News Channel interview, in a carnival-like flood of children traveling north into America.

‘We go out and we stop the separation,’ he recounted. ‘The problem is you have ten times more people coming up with their families. It’s like Disneyland now.’

‘When they used to separate children, which was done during the Obama administration, with Bush, with us, with everybody, far fewer people would come,’ he said.

Trump painted the policy of family separation and its practical consequences as a matter of incentives, suggesting that Central Americans would typically say, ‘Let’s not go up.’

‘Now you don’t get separated, and you know, while that sounds nice and all, what happens is you have literally ten times more families coming up because they’re not going to be separated from their children. So it turned out to be a disincentive that’s obviously a disaster,’ he said.
