Focus on the Family Head Jim Daly — Gave Trump Free Pass For Imprisoning Immigrant Kids — Blames Biden ‘Policies’ for Migrant Children at Border, But Can’t Name One Policy
Evangelical leader and Focus on the Family head Jim Daly refused to condemn President Donald Trump for knowingly separating immigrant children from parents, and imprisoning thousands of the separated kids, noted Slate.
Daly gave Trump a free pass for imprisoning kids in 2018, and instead blamed prior administration’s policies, unenforced laws and foreign governments:
The crisis we find ourselves in at the southern border has been years in the making, a complex consequence of bad policy, unenforced laws and an inability of politicians to make difficult and often unpopular decisions.
It’s also the result of tyrannical and unpopular governments – and the attractive bright light of America that has historically drawn people to her shores.
Daly is now attacking President Joe Biden by name in The Christian Post because thousands of unaccompanied children (not being separated from their parents by the U.S. government) have been showing up at the U.S. border.
Daly is furious at Biden for refusing to use the Republican talking point that there is a “crisis” at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Biden also whined: “So why hasn’t now-President Biden visited the border to see the terrible human cost of this crisis for himself?”
Daly failed to mention that Biden placed Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of the border issue.
Daly also blamed Biden’s policies for the tens of thousands of immigrant children that are trying to enter the U.S., but Daly could not name one actual policy:
The Biden administration’s policies, which have driven much of the recent migrant surge, have been reckless, irresponsible, and put the lives of immigrants at risk. If the administration wants to truly care for these immigrants, this crisis must be dealt with. Now.
Daly also tried to compare himself to an immigrant child without parents:
I know what it’s like for a child to be separated from their parents. I may not have come across the southern border, but I was left alone at age nine when my mother died and my stepfather abandoned me and my siblings.
