Democrats want open Borders, where anyone can come into our Country, and stay. This is Nancy Pelosi’s dream. It won’t happen!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 21, 2018
“We’re suspending prosecutions of adults who are members of family units until ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) can accelerate resource capability to allow us to maintain custody,” an unnamed official tells the [Washington Post].
Word was, Trump was looking to the military to house people. They've got military bases, right? Military bases house people, right?
To which apparently the DOD replied: "Sure, we've got military bases. That doesn't mean we have facilities to house families under guard indefinitely."
Trump's ignorance ran headlong into the buzz saw of reality. The real problem is, no one in the White House had the good sense to realize this couldn't possibly work.
