The media has been feigning outrage for weeks over President Donald Trump’s immigration policy that calls for enforcement of the actual immigration laws that Democrats apparently want to ignore. President Trump took to Twitter on Monday to fire back at those critics and hit them with the facts.

Democrats and their cronies in the media have been screaming that President Trump is separating families, but they have failed to acknowledge some basic facts. In other cases, they have outright lied to the American people about what is happening.

Democrats do not acknowledge the fact that no one has forced anyone to sneak into the United States and break federal immigration laws. None of them point out the fact that people are not allowed to bring their kids with them to prison, which is where the illegal alien adults go. And they don’t acknowledge the fact that this policy has been on the books for decades and has been selectively enforced by other presidents.

What has changed is that President Trump is enforcing the law in every case. Illegal aliens and smugglers are aware that if you bring a minor with you to the border, the border patrol would catch and release you with a summons to go to court that you could ignore. It has been abused, and now the president is putting a stop to it.

On Monday, President Donald Trump sent a series of tweets to show that he has no intention of caving to the pressure campaign being brought by Democrats and the media. “Why don’t the Democrats give us the votes to fix the world’s worst immigration laws? Where is the outcry for the killings and crime being caused by gangs and thugs, including MS-13, coming into our country illegally?” he wrote.

“We don’t want what is happening with immigration in Europe to happen with us!” he said. “Children are being used by some of the worst criminals on earth as a means to enter our country. Has anyone been looking at the Crime taking place south of the border. It is historic, with some countries the most dangerous places in the world. Not going to happen in the U.S.”

“CHANGE THE LAWS!” the president demanded. “It is the Democrats fault for being weak and ineffective with Boarder Security and Crime. Tell them to start thinking about the people devastated by Crime coming from illegal immigration. Change the laws!”

White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Monday and explained the policy. “Do you think that the message from the media is correct, that your administration is separating parents, moms and kids?” host Brian Kilmeade asked Gidley.

“It is completely false,” he said. “This is all the Democrats’ doing. Democrats are saying ‘you can’t deport them, you can’t detain them, you can’t prosecute them,’” Gidley said. “The only thing you can do, per a Democrat, is release them into the Interior without any ramification for what they’ve done by breaking our laws.”

Hogan Gidley explained that there are not many choices when it comes to what to do with illegal immigrants. Democrats would prefer to release them into the United States, but Republicans want the law enforced.

“There are only one of two things that can happen when [immigrants] come here [illegally],” he said. “You either have to release them into the Interior of the United States as a family unit, or you have to separate the families. That’s what the law says.”

“The Democrats’ policies put drug cartels in business… and also the child smuggling industry,” he said. “International child smuggling is up because Democrats create incentives by not closing these loopholes.”

It is that simple, and it is what the media is hiding from the American people. Illegal immigrants are being sent to jail because they have committed a crime, and they are not allowed to bring their kids with them to prison. No one has kidnapped these migrants from their home nations, brought them to the United States, and placed them in detention centers. They have a choice, and they have chosen to break the law. The president has chosen to enforce it.
