Eh yet then YOU ALL cry your fake crocodile tears supposedly caring about "the CHILDREN" sent to our country ILLEGALLY.... who are NOT being ripped out of their illegal immigrant mother's arms, yet you cry NO TEARS over the innocent 60 million babies in the USA who have been legally MURDERED while in their mothers wombs since 1973 SCOTUS ruling via Roe vs Wade??

steps up in the batter's box

Media spreading false Melania nonsense again.

Via Twitchy:

Remember the time Melania Trump left to visit the relief effort in Houston from Hurricane Harvey and the media questioned her choice to wear stiletto heels, which one reporter deemed “not exactly disaster friendly”? Of course, she changed into tennis shoes on the plane, but it gave the media something to gripe about.

That’s why Allahpundit over at Twitchy sister site Hot Air is right today when he says FLOTUS should apologize: “Not for the message on her jacket but for inadvertently subjecting America to all of the stupid, predictable late-night jokes this is going to inspire.”

We like to think the first lady was just trolling the media, and of course, CNN’s Jim Acosta was among those to bite:

“I hope the media isn’t going to choose to focus on her wardrobe.” Yeah, right.

Acosta did some research at The Daily Mail to learn more about the jacket.

And just as with her previous trip to Texas, Mrs. Trump changed clothes on the plane, so no, she wasn’t wearing the jacket while visiting the children.

They only affect to care now, and are falling all over themselves to pile on, for equally obvious reasons.

From your own reference, Vic:
"The Shenandoah detention center was built by a coalition of seven nearby towns and counties to lock up local kids charged with serious crimes. Since 2007, about half the 58 beds are occupied by male and female immigrants between the ages of 12 and 17 facing deportation proceedings or awaiting rulings on asylum claims. Though incarcerated in a facility similar to a prison, the children detained on administrative immigration charges have not yet been convicted of any crime."

Your reference is to a UN Convention, Vic. You should try reading it sometime. (hehe)

"Despite this provision, asylum seekers are placed in detention facilities throughout Europe, North America, and Australia, owing to their illegal entry or presence. In its July 2000 review of reception standards for asylum seekers in the European Union, UNHCR found several different types of detention in operation, including detention at border points or in airport transit areas, and that the grounds for detention also vary. For example, refugees and asylum seekers may be detained at the ‘pre-admission’ phase, because of false documents or lack of proper documentation, or they may be held in anticipation of deportation or transfer to a ‘safe third country’, for example, under the provisions of the Dublin Convention. Several countries have no limit on the maximum period of detention, including Denmark, Finland, Greece, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, while others provide maximum periods and require release if no decision on admission or removal has been taken."

In response to “Actually the laws on the books say that you...

According to Article 1 of the 1951 UN Convention, as modified by the 1967 Protocol, a refugee is defined as a person who ‘owing to well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality and is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country.’ This definition implies that several qualifying conditions apply to be considered a refugee: (1) presence outside home country; (2) well-founded fear of persecution (being at risk of harm is insufficient reason in the absence of discriminatory persecution); (3) incapacity to enjoy the protection of one’s own state from the persecution feared. The definition of refugees was actually intended to exclude internally displaced persons, economic migrants, victims of natural disasters, and persons fleeing violent conflict but not subject to discrimination amounting to persecution.

International refugee law or international human rights treaties neither articulate an explicit entitlement to asylum for the individuals concerned, nor impose an obligation on states to grant asylum. Individuals have a right to seek asylum, not to be granted asylum, and the states have the right to grant asylum, but no obligation. The Geneva Convention does not guarantee asylum-seekers the right to be granted refugee status, even if they fulfil the conditions to be considered refugees; this remains at state discretion. 

Entering a state party to the Convention unlawfully does not forfeit protection (Article 31) and illegal entrants can still qualify as refugees if they fulfil the relevant criteria. ‘Refugees unlawfully in the country of refuge’ should not be punished for their illegal entry if they come directly from the territory where their life and freedom was threatened and if they report themselves immediately to the authorities, showing good reason for their illegal entry (Article 31). Restrictions on their movement can be imposed until their status is regularised. To ‘refugees lawfully in the territory,’ Article 26 of the Convention grants the right to choose their residence and to move freely. The UNHCR considers that detention of asylum-seekers should be a measure of last resort. It has drafted a set of guidelines for the use of detention of asylum-seekers. In certain countries, refugees are confined to refugee camps and their movement is restricted. In other countries, including in many developed countries, detention of irregular migrants until their status as refugees is determined is a common practice.

Earlier today when I first saw that photo of our 1st Lady wearing that jacket...my first thought was, oh man the liberal nuts in our country are going to LOSE THEIR F'n MINDS with this lol...and you all did, as expected.

Eh but all you supposed "compassionate" liberals "for the CHILDREN" had NO OUTRAGE whatsoever with your fellow liberal "progressive" Peter Fonda tweeting out of him wanting Barron Trump(12 years old) to be kidnapped(ripped from our 1st Lady's arms) and then having Barron (a CHILD!!!!) put in a cage with pedophiles...... and then your fellow liberal NUTS doubled down on the internet by telling DJT Jr, that next they were coming for Chloe, his 4 YEAR OLD daughter, smh.

Hard core liberals of today are CERTIFIABLY nuts(suffering from mental disorders).... thankfully due to the internet, with you all putting your TRUE feelings out there via social media for ALL to see/read, your "tolerant of ALL" party is finally being exposed as the MOST vile, violent, INTOLERANT people in our country.

Eh but you "progressive" SJW's should keep on keeping on believing what our msm "news" reports to you, as well as you all believing what our WICKED SMAAAAT liberal celebrities tell you to believe...because doing so worked out so well for you all in 2016 lol!! Oh wait, I forgot that it was THE RUSSIANS who got Trump elected in 2016, my bad......now that we as a country know that THE RUSSIANS got Trump elected(lol) and that we're ONTO them.... you liberals/resisters have nothing to worry about for that BLUE WAVE that's going to happen in the mid terms and the 2020 Presidential election lol!!!

Mrs. Trump changed into a pale yellow jacket before the plane landed in McAllen, Texas, for a visit to the Upbring New Hope Children's Center, which houses 55 migrant children. But even after questions arose about her attire, Mrs. Trump was back in the green jacket when she returned to Washington in 80-degree weather. She has shown that she won't bow to public pressure or expectations about how she should comport herself as first lady.

It was an excellent choice. It worked as planned, drive a wedge deeper, solidify the base, get ready for the showdown.

Pure baloney, Vic, as usual on your part. (biggrin)

It solidified the lib base much more than the con base.

The parents know what will happen to the kids, they don't care.
They were hoping the kids would play on peoples emotions and get them (the parents) in...that's what they care about.

Mexico didn't give a damn about them or their kids and allowed them, like they allow all illegals, to slip through their country

I'm waiting for a law to pass, that all people being arrested, no matter what law they break, will have their kids stay with them while being locked up.

If that's a law for illegals, then its good for regular citizens too.

Probably have to start putting jail cells in Holiday Inns.

Our country has taken in children from illegals and once the kids are here, their parents are allowed to join them...seems our government are too stupid to understand...

Yes Vic, she wore the jacket.
She wore it on the plane down to visit the border, and on the way home. She did not wear it while off the plane.

Of course you and the left ilk will believe that she means to say she doesn't care about the kids.

Think what you want. Make it a mid-term ad! No one cares about your constant bitching anymore - including the first lady!
