I really don’t understand the thinking here:
“I think we should fix it,” King responded. “I think we should first articulate this clearly. This is a man-caused disaster, and the man that caused it is Barack Obama with his DACA policy, with his Morton memos and the advertisement that has been such a huge magnet that have caused these families to give their daughters birth control pills and send them down a rape path all the way through Mexico. That’s a death path on the death train too.”
So, Rep. King knows that the path to the US is really bad and he knows the parents of the children know it’s really bad … and his conclusion is to make it more difficult to get here. Obviously the situation in these countries must be so bad that parents (assuming the parents haven’t both been killed) send their children to the US even though they know the trip here is terrible. The only way King’s statement makes sense is if he doesn’t care about the children–it isn’t bad that terrible things are happening to these children, the terrible thing is that they’re trying to get into the US. Ok, never mind, I’m not confused. It’s just that King is a horrible person.
