For the first time since President Donald Trump has taken office, his wife Melania has taken a stance that would appear to be opposite that of her husband.
On Sunday, spokesperson Stephanie Grisham, issued a statement on the first lady’s behalf criticizing the separation of children from their parents at the border.
Govern with Heart
The mainstream media has made the plight of undocumented immigrants a mainstay during the latest news cycle.
Liberal reporters have been blistering President Trump’s press secretary during White House press conferences.
Every local channel across the country is putting up pictures and videos of immigration facilities.
Local politicians are all over the place calling Trump’s policy un-American.
Laura Bush even penned an op-ed, saying the zero-tolerance policy “breaks my heart.”
And now, the current first lady is calling out the president and telling him to have an administration that “governs with heart.”
Just One Problem…
What everyone is asking the president to do is create an exception to the law.
The problem with that is when you create an exception, the law basically becomes invalid.
The moment that exception is created, everyone will try to take advantage of it.
While more and more people are trying to pull at the president’s heart strings, nobody is looking at the actual cause of the problem: people are entering this country illegally.
Asylum Vs. Undocumented
The law in place stipulates what happens when people come to this country illegally.
However, if they knocked on the door and asked for asylum, their family would be able to remain together.
The problem is that they are breaking the law.
They will come here without documentation, then more than likely work under the table, never paying taxes, or worse, resort to crime to make a living.
There is a right way and a wrong way to do things.
This is not about heart; this is about obeying the rule of law.
No ifs, ands, or buts.
