Ivanka Trump to fly to check on migrants in Colombia — but she’s never visited kids her dad put in cages

Published

on

Jennifer Jacobs, the senior White House reporter for Bloomberg News, is reporting the first daughter is heading to Colombia to meet with refugees from Venezuela on the border.

The situation in Venezuela has caused falling oil prices, international sanctions from leaders, and years of corruption from leaders. Currently, 1.4 million Venezuelans have rushed to the border of Colombia, begging for help.

“Ivanka Trump will visit the Colombia-Venezuela border on Wednesday ‘to see Colombia ongoing efforts to address the migrant crisis,'” Jacobs quoted the Colombian embassy.

Meanwhile, Trump’s child hasn’t been to the border in the United States to meet with migrant children her father is keeping in cages.

Ivanka has always been an advocate of children, yet when given the opportunity to do something about the children taken from their parents and kept in cages without any hope for release, she has done nothing. Ultimately, a judge informed the White House that it was illegal to snatch the children and hold them indefinitely in substandard cages. The Border Patrol has been forced to follow the law on the children, as it searches for alternatives.

The president announced at the end of August that they would enforce an old rule that would allow the U.S. to detain migrants and their children indefinitely without any due process. They claimed it was to “protect” the children. In reality, however, the Department of Homeland Security has lost many of the children that were taken from their parents at the border. While they’ve been able to locate some of them, they still can’t find 1,100 children.

It’s unclear why Ivanka is not interested in meeting with the children in the cages at the border to comfort them, but she’s willing to fly to Colombia to meet with Venezuelans. The migrants coming to the United States are similarly fleeing economic instability, violent gangs, kidnappings, and a slew of other concerns. The administration has been more focused on building the wall than stopping the flow of migrants from Latin America.

Mitch McConnell crony running for Kentucky AG is ineligible for office: lawsuit

Published

on

On Tuesday, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that a new lawsuit seeks to remove Daniel Cameron from the ballot as the Kentucky GOP's nominee for state attorney general.

According to the lawsuit, filed by retired union worker and "concerned citizen" Joseph Leon Jackson Sr. in Jefferson Circuit Court, Cameron does not meet the office requirement of having practiced law for eight years — because although he was admitted by the Kentucky Bar Association in 2011, he spent two of the following years clerking for U.S. District Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove.
