Be prepared. OrangeHead FatPants will blame the Democrats and begin doing this again, claiming that he gave Congress a chance to fix a law that doesn’t need to be fixed.
First, Trump said that he was not responsible for splitting up the families. He told reporters over and over that separation was required by the “Democrat law.” His Homeland Security Chief Kirstjen Nielsen on Sunday had Tweeted that “We do not have a policy of separating families at the border. Period.” She soon went back on that statement a day later by insisting that separation was, as Trump said, required by law. If it is required by law, how can the president change the policy? You can’t change a law with an executive order.
