During the first two years of the Obama administration the Democrats controlled all three segments of the federal government for two years.
During those two years passing Obamacare was their sole mission.
Immigration reform and the plight of immigrant children was not the issue they were interested in. We have had the same immigration policies for decades.
Now that Trump is President, the Democrats are worried about the abuses of immigrant children often smuggled here by paid coyotes.
Remember folks, this is and election year and politicians will exploit anyone or anything to get your vote.
