Sandra Sanchez is the mother of Time Magazine’s crying family separation poster child. They might want to try someone else. The Obama Administration deported Sanchez in 2013. Her daughter, an icon for the left’s 2018 narrative, was never separated from her mother. And the little girl was only separated from her family because her mother dragged her to the US border without them.
According to that little girl’s father, Sandra Sanchez took her without a word, leaving behind her husband and other three children in Honduras. This likely harpoons any claims she may have for asylum – which is part and parcel to the American Left’s current hissy-fit over border enforcement.
Her decision to leave others of her children back home — recounted by the girl’s father, Denis Javier Varela Hernandez, to The Washington Post and Reuters last week — will also likely weigh on her chances, suggesting that she didn’t fear for them in their home country.
“If the children and her spouse are safe, and she felt comfortable leaving them home, it is arguable that the mother has no real fear of persecution,” said Matthew J. O’Brien, a former anti-fraud official at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services who now works at the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
Mr. Hernandez says that “If they are deported, that is OK as long as they do not leave the child without her mother,” he told Reuters. “I am waiting to see what happens with them.”
But don’t expect the corporate media to be any more forthcoming on details than they have so far.
“The Mainstream media is falling all over itself not to furnish the public with relevant details, like the fact that this woman was previously deported and isn’t even eligible for asylum,” he said. “It appears to be a case of deliberate journalistic misrepresentation in support of a partisan political cause.”
I’d like to know how she got across Mexico, which has border barriers and a real zero tolerance policy for illegal immigrants coming into their country.
I know. There’s a pass-through-free card if you say you are breaking into the United States illegally. Well, maybe not free. Mexico may require you to take a few Mexicans with you. And, here are some instructions on what to say when you get there. And no, you can’t cross back through Mexico if you a) survive the journey and b) get turned away.
One final point. I know I’ve made fun of the left by accusing them of using this to distract from other problems in their ranks. The reality is that while this is a convenient side effect what they really want is wide open borders and unrestrained access.
To that end, a Democrat congressman is proposing to do away altogether with immigration control and enforcement.
So, Democrats want to run on raising taxes, and open borders? By all means please do that.
