Immigration Debate Rages On “The Heat”

Reactionary Times Editorial Director Julio Rivera appeared on CGTV’s “The Heat” to discuss the Illegal Immigration Problem in America. He referenced the fact that the policies that Trump has been slammed for were actually put into place during the Clinton Administration.

Rivera’s recent column in also touched on the fact that the “child separation policy” was not an invention of the Trump Administration:

A footnote to the Executive Summary created by The Office of the Inspector General (OIG), Evaluation and Inspections Division, after a review of the treatment of unaccompanied illegal juveniles held in the custody of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) after the Flores Consent Decree of 1997, clearly states, “An influx condition is one of the justifications the INS can use to place a juvenile in a secure facility.”

These protocols were put in place initially during the Clinton Administration, and have continued mostly unobstructed for over 20 years. Back when this Executive Summary was prepared, an “influx condition” was defined by the Flores Consent Decree as “a situation when the INS has more than 130 juveniles eligible for placement in a shelter facility.” Due to the irresponsibility in addressing our problems with illegal immigration over the subsequent 20 plus years, the number of detained children has only multiplied many times over.
