Michelle Obama's statements represents the Democrat's philosophy regarding immigration. Just let everyone that wants come in regardless of why or the circumstances. Tear down the borders and eliminate the laws and those that enforce them our priority is to let everyone that wants to come in do so and then we'll take care of them regardless. We'll let everyone that is working pay more so they can take care of and support those who either won't or can't work. WE (working Americans) will provide FREE healthcare and FREE everything to those who can't or won't work and we'll have a liberal utopia where Democrats will always be in power and be reelected. This is, I believe, the reason that the Democrats want to let everyone in and give them driver's license so that they can then have an ID and can legally vote (for Democrats).
I guarantee if it was proven that these illegals were to vote for Republicans there would be the most massive, inhumane, casting of people out of the Country that you ever did see. It's laughable how the media and Democrats clammer about the separation of families at the border and blame Trump when the same, and more of it, happened under Obama and with the blessings of the Obama administration before. That, however, doesn't have any merit or mention because this is something we will attempt to use to turn others against Trump.
Like many have said ... if you break the law you are going to be separated from your family if you are caught and arrested. You are going to be separated for the term of your sentence for whatever law(s) you broke and were convicted of. Most of the times you are separated from the time of arrest till the trial also unless you can come up with and meet bail requirements but for those illegals that enter illegally we are to totally upend the Nation's laws for. At last that seems to be what the Democrats are advocating for.
