Why are American criminals separated from their children when they go to jail/prison?

The system doesn't work that way with Illegal immigrants

    Because prison is PUNISHMENT! Punishment for breaking the laws that we are supposed to live by. To my way of thinking prisoners get way to much leniency as it is.

    Because that is what is done in a police state run by pedophiles

    If you want parity in these systems you need to look at pretrial detention rather than post trial conviction. People awaiting criminal trials in the US usually have the option of paying bail to get out and do their waiting at home. Most of these migrants are awaiting trial so maybe we should have a bail system for them as well. You pay your bail and you're released. You don't pay your bail and you stay in detention.

    Because the majority of American criminals have family right there to take their children and keep them in the family. The immigrant children have nowhere to go. And we all know that Trump decided to have his people kidnap those children as a "bargining tool" against the Democrats and he admitted that himself. https://edition.cnn.com/2018/06/16/politics/trump-...

    Just like he cut off health care to his own nephew's tiny baby as a bargaining tool. http://samuel-warde.com/2016/10/what-donald-trump-...

    Because they are not here ILLEGALLY breaking many of our laws. American LAWS actually apply to and AGAINST REAL AMERICANS.. NOT ILLEGALS... ILLEGALS are ABOVE AND BEYOND THE LAWS.. ASK ANY DEMOCRIT...

    Suspects gets detained for days unless they post bail, if they can't get bail they may get detained for month's until released without charges, unless convicted to be incarcerated for years. Illegals is suppose to get deported after claims for asylum is baseless & fraudulent. Homeless citizens don't even get proper care, & they deserve proper medical care more. Illegals didn't have medical care from any countries they crossed before illegally crossing into the US chasing after free ride entitlements that was meant for tax payers.

    Do American's have the right to illegally immigrate anywhere in the world? Whether under socialist or capitalist system uninvited non citizen/non residence (invaders) don't have the legal right to illegally enter or trespass on communal residence/complex, private property or residence without permission. Illegally crossing or overstaying ones visa is not a right. Taking in refugees is out of generosity not a right. A Legal Immigrant should have more right for having permission or invitation. It's as simple as Guest vs Trespassers.

    Funny how Cuba, Venezuela, N Korea, S. Korea, Japan, China, Canada, Australia, Saudi, UAE, most of Africa, at least most of non western countries don't have that problem. Could it be because Legal Immigration is Merit Base, laws against Illegal Immigration are highly enforced, at least 1 parent has to be a citizen or naturalized (after 10-15 years having proven allegiance & economic contribution to the sovereign) for birth-right citizen of a newborn, & limited, if not zero, social welfare advantages for illegal immigrants.

    Jordan only has real refugees because no opportunistic, parasitic, & criminal illegal immigrant would want to seek refuge in a country that doesn't provide employment opportunities, healthcare, permanent residency, birth-right citizenship, housing, & housing allowances for refugees & illegal immigrants, illegals will likely go to jail. Tent cities are all Jordan provides for refugee. Private charities, mostly foreign, provides the rest.

    Illegal Immigrants are (D)'s tools to gain more congressional seat in the same manner to how the slave state wanted full representation for the slave population for the slave states to have more power over the free states, but the (D)s today want power over free citizens as their addicted for handouts & highly dependent supporters' population grows exponentially. Activist Lawyers, Gov. funded Shelters, Social services, Publics schools, & Public Hospitals benefits in more funding & guaranteed employment.

    Sanctuary states are transporting Illegal immigrants in their states to a non-sanctuary state's city like San Antonio, Texas. Ironically Sanctuary states don't want illegal immigrants transported in their cities. In the end the poor & smaller minority citizens are disenfranchised even more.

    If open border & illegal immigrants illegally crossing the southern border are allowed then custom, immigration visas, airport, seaport, & the coast guard then has to be abolished, even all military & law enforcement branches (police, intelligence (FBI/CIA) including the Judicial system since it coincide with law enforcement.

    The incentives for illegal crossing in the southern border are mostly fraudulent in nature. Unaccompanied minors (teenagers: should be deported back to their parents or relatives in their country of origin immediately) will get welfare & housing with clubhouse amenities. Anchor babies will get welfare/housing assistance. Accompanied minors will get welfare as well. Illegals use false identities & fraudulent social security numbers.

    American citizens engaging in welfare fraud or any fraudulent schemes gets charge & imprisoned, but illegal aliens get sanctuary, especially the criminal element as they are not deported.

    Before Lyndon Johnson's Presidency vetted Legal Immigrants in less than half of todays numbers came for work opportunities, didn't receive social services & only real refugees were seeking asylum. Lyndon Johnson's great society programs initially was for U.S. citizens, as it expanded with various duplicate programs, illegal immigrants with minors & anchor babies are now being covered to overwhelm the school & welfare system.

    The refugee act of 1980 is purely virtue signaling, it doesn't solve anything, but burden the country even further burden society, otherwise there wouldn't be a homeless problem. The Bill should be repeal or amended to a case by case basis. The 1980 refugee act made asylum automatic. In WWI, WWII, Korean War, (no great society duplicate programs to take advantage of) & Vietnam War, Refugees & Asylum were case by case basis. Not having a refugee act does not mean Real Refugees will not be granted Asylum. Other countries without a refugee act accepts refugees, but they cannot accept 10%-90% population of the refugees native countries as it will put tremendous pressure on the host countries land space, poverty, over crowding, food production, tax expenditures, cost of living, schools, health care, housing, waste & environmental pollutions.

    Sanctuary states in the west coast have created a Homeless epidemic due to all their virtue signal & having no solution, & they simply won't act & admit that they have an epidemic & need solution, but instead they add more virtue signaling because that is their only skill in life to get elected. The sanctuary law they created will have the same effect as the Homeless epidemic. Instead of solving the problem of Illegal Immigration, they perpetuate it, just like they perpetuated the Homeless & drug addiction problem. Burdening Sanctuary Cities with more Illegals they claim to care about will expose the money & corruption behind sustaining & perpetuating the Homeless & Illegal Immigration problem.

    BC they are going to jail/prison? What a stupid question.

  • 5 months ago

    People don't care about those immigrant kids, so what's the point in separating them? It's just a further waste of tax dollars.

      Would you like to revise your statement to recognize that the system doesn't care about people in state custody at all?
