A new poll reveals that a majority of American voters blame illegal immigrant parents for the child crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, not the Trump administration.
According to a new Rasmussen poll, 54 percent of Americans said parents are to blame for the issues at the southern border.
The poll spells bad news for Democrats like Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer, who have been falsely blaming President Donald Trump for the “crisis.”
More than half of voters say the parents are to blame for breaking the law and trying to infiltrate a country they are not legally authorized to be in.
Only 35 percent said the U.S. government is more to blame for the migrant crisis.

Additionally, 54 percent of Americans agree with a recent quote from the president, where he said: “The United States will not be a migrant camp. And it will not be a refugee-holding facility — it won’t be.”
The collective outrage from liberals began a few weeks ago when reports surfaced that children were being temporarily separated from their families at the border.
The media and Democratic lawmakers immediately politicized the situation, accusing Trump of caging and abusing children. Some even said the detention centers — which have gaming consoles, nice beds, air conditioning units, televisions, DVD players, ping-pong tables, and so on — were comparable to Nazi concentration camps.
Has anyone conducted a study to find out if the people comparing Trump to Hitler or America to Nazi Germany indeed have a brain? And if so, does it function? And if so, can it read? And if so, can it retain what it’s read? I feel like this could shed a lot of light.

The truth is that the Trump administration was following the exact same “zero tolerance” immigration policies as former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.
Immigration officials sometimes separate children from the adults they arrive with to ensure they are not being smuggled or trafficked by criminals.
The measure was put into place in the mid 1990s to ensure child safety, but liberals outright refuse to admit that because they would rather spread misinformation and smear Trump.
On Wednesday, Trump signed an executive order to allow children to stay with parents caught crossing the border illegally — but that’s still not good enough for the Left.
Even after President Trump issued an Executive Order allowing migrant adults with children to stay together after apprehension on the border, the hate-Trump press continued to hammer the President in deeply personal ways.

Liberals view this as another opportunity to make money and smear Trump, so of course they are spreading outright lies to the American people.
Fortunately, a majority of the American people clearly believe that parents, not the government, are to blame for breaking the law and, at times, endangering children to infiltrate the country.
