Trump locking children in cages… or is he?

Social media has been flooded with the above picture and claims that the US government is separating children from their parents, (parents who are criminals, illegal immigrants), then putting the children in cages like animals.

Caged toddler out or the cage. There children in the cage holding posters.

But is that what was happening?

No. The boy was in a cage, but he was put in their by his parents to stage the photo.

The photograph was taken at a protest to call attention to the Trump administration’s practice of separating families and confining undocumented children. The photo was taken on the 10th June 2018, in front of Dallas City Hall.

So powerful has been the outcry that this photo has raised that US President Donald Trump has bowed to public pressure and signed an executive order promising to “keep families together” in migrant detentions.

Mr Trump reversed his own policy amid international fury over the separation of undocumented parents and children. He said he had been swayed by images of children who have been taken from parents while they are jailed and prosecuted for illegal border-crossing.

Ho… and by the way. We are frequently separating parents and children when the parents break the law, and illegally crossing a countries borders is a crime. Yes, it is hard on the children and presumably the parents too, but that is the effect of crime.

Interestingly, many of the parents of the children being brought across the boards are not… well, not the parents. there is often NO genetic relationship.

For more on this story see Mark Dice’s coverage below.

To understand more about the challenge of immigration see Gum-Ball Immigration.

One thing I have against Donalds Trump’s State of the Union address.

As part of Trump’s immigration policy, he said,

“It is time to begin moving towards a merit-based immigration system — one that admits people who are skilled, who want to work, who will contribute to our society, and who will love and respect our country.”

On the whole, fantastic, I am just a little cautious about three words, “who are skilled”.

It has been the way of powerful and prosperous societies for, well probably almost all time. Strong armies and nations have been taking property, land, people and even ideas.

In Daniel chapter one verses 3-4 we read, “And the king, [Nebuchadnezzar], spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his eunuchs, that he should bring certain of the children of Israel, and of the king’s seed, and of the princes; Children in whom was no blemish, but well favoured, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans.”

And it is far more than just Donald Trump or even Americans. Many, many UK politicians have said something very similar. Even Nigel Farage said,

“This is why UKIP wants to see a Migration Control Commission – with a remit to bring down net immigration while assuring the right number of highly skilled workers from across the globe are able to enter.”

“Highly skilled workers from across the globe!”

So what do I have against highly skilled workers coming to Britain or going into America?

Well in many ways nothing, it sounds great, just what we want! But if you give it some thought…

Unintended Consequences

When you take an action like this, such a big and powerful action as, the first world sucking skills gifts and determination from what we used to be permitted to call the third world, then there are going to be consequences.

The law of unintended consequences, often cited but rarely defined, is that actions of people—and especially of government—always have effects that are unanticipated or unintended.

Short-term consequences.

There may well be some positive short-term consequences that may look like they would be good for our countries.

  • Increased skilled worker bass that employers can recruit from.
  • Companies, (generally the better off of society), able to reduce employment costs and make bigger profits and even, maybe pass savings on to customers.
  • Our economy may grow and become more competitive against those of other nations.

Longer-term consequences.

As well as these positive short-term consequences, there are other knock-on outcomes that we should think about. The increase of skill for our country is the depletion of skills for other poorer countries.

The depletion of skill and motivated educated people from poorer countries is likely to lead to these poor countries becoming even poorer and their population becoming even more desperate.

The motivated, skilled and educated people who we are thinking of taking from poor countries are the people who are more likely to:

  • Improve their own society.
  • Create employment for others.
  • Be motivated to bring political improvement/reform to their own countries.
  • Raise the economic state of their own countries, and thereby raise the stability of their countries but also provide a market for our good and services.
  • The creation of employment within their county is likely to motivate the population of that country to seek an education, employment, political reform and the like. In other words, we might say that this country is likely to move towards a middle-class lifestyle. Employed, middle-class people are less likely to get involved in crime or to become radicalised.

On top of this, there is the effect on our country.

  • Depression of wages.
  • The demotivation of our young people.
  • Resentment of migrants and immigrants legal and illegal.
  • Loss of a possible market for our goods, by the depression of the economy of the counties that we take skilled migrant from.
  • Increased economic migration because their counties had been impoverished by us taking their skilled people.
