There has been much weeping and wailing among the left for the past several months over the temporary separation of illegal immigrant families at the border after illegal alien parents are detained for prosecution and their children are held in separate custody for the duration of the process.
The Trump White House has finally pushed back against the left’s separation narrative in a video that features the American parents who’ve been permanently separated from their children through death at the hands of criminal illegal aliens.
The short but powerful video was released just one day after it was revealed that a missing Iowa college student named Mollie Tibbetts had been murdered by an illegal alien while out for her daily jog.
For 34 days, investigators searched for 20-year-old Mollie Tibbetts. Yesterday, an illegal alien, now charged with first-degree murder, led police to the cornfield where her body was found.

As tragic as the temporary separation of illegal alien families at the border may seem to many, the separation is by definition only temporary, and barring any major criminal prosecutions of the parents, the families are typically reunited a few weeks or months later.
But that tragedy pales in comparison to the American citizens who’ve suffered the permanent loss of their child through the criminal actions of illegal aliens, as there is no earthly family reunification in the cards for them at a later date.
That was the point made by the collection of parents whose children have been murdered or killed accidentally by illegal aliens who never should have been in the country to begin with.
“Permanently separated, not just for a week or a month,” said one of the mothers, countering the liberal media narrative.
Other parents recalled how their innocent children had been brutally murdered by criminal illegals, or killed in car accidents by drunk driving illegals.
“This man wasn’t supposed to be here,” said one of the fathers of his child’s killer.
“My separation,” stated all of the grieving parents one-by-one, “is permanent.”
Democrats and their liberal media allies have made great hay out of the temporary family separations that occur at the border as a result of the Trump administration’s tough enforcement of border security and immigration laws.
But the separation these families have tragically suffered because of previously lax enforcement of border security and immigration laws is permanent and irreversible. It’s time for Americans to say “never again.”
