I chuckled when I saw this news at Newsweek because the phrase “fake families” shows that this Administration gets it!
As I’ve been telling you, the Left generally controls the language and their widespread use of the phrase “new Americans” is one such example.
For Open Borders activists, “New Americans” is an all-encompassing way to describe all migrants, whether legal refugees or illegal aliens, meant to erase any differences between them and make the uninformed listener or reader feel warm and welcoming toward all.
Kudos to the Trump team for coining the phrase “fake families” to describe those arriving illegally at our border with a child in tow (someone else’s child in tow!).
By the way, there were thousands of fake Somali families discovered by the US State Department in 2008 causing the entire family reunification program for Somalis to be closed for years. See one early post here at RRW.
Here is a bit of Newsweek’s “fake families” story,
ICE CRACKING DOWN ON ‘FAKE FAMILIES’ USING CHILDREN AS ‘PAWNS’ AT BORDER
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency revealed on Monday that it is reallocating resources to the Southwest border in a bid to crack down on “fake families seeking to exploit U.S. immigration laws.”
The Trump administration has repeatedly warned of “fake families” arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border in recent months, with Department of Homeland Security officials claiming that migrant children are being kidnapped by smugglers and then sent to the border with “fake” parents to help their chances of making a successful asylum claim in the U.S.
“ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) is redirecting resources to the border in response to cases of fake families using forged documents to illegally enter our country and avoid detention,” ICE Acting Director Matthew Albence, who recently replaced resigned ICE chief Ronald Vitiello, said in a statement published online.
“Our highly skilled teams are working to stop individuals, networks and organizations facilitating child smuggling and document fraud,” Albence said.
In one case, the agency said HSI special agents identified two suspect family units presenting themselves as two fathers with their sons on April 22. The agency said the four individuals, two of whom were found to be 23-year-old men pretending to be minors, are now being prosecuted for visa fraud and making false statements.
In another case, ICE said an adult Honduran man had presented a false birth certificate for a 7-year-old child who was traveling with him. During an interview, the man admitted that he was not related to the child, the agency said. As a result, the man was prosecuted for illegal entry, and the child was turned over to the care of the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement as an unaccompanied minor in accordance with procedures outlined in the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act.
So what do you do?
Help the President’s team! Use the phrase “fake families” every chance you get and make the Leftwinger’s heads explode!
