Illegal Alien Transsexuals are the Latest "Victims" of Trump
Boo Hoo . . . Poor Trannies
(CNS) - At Jezebel, Prachi Gupta has switched the Border Crisis-O-Matic’s Special Pleading dial to LGBT and fired it up.
It seems that “trans women” are afraid to sneak across the U.S. border. And that’s a bad thing. Gupta introduces her subject with a sentence whose length is matched only by its hysteria:
“As the Trump administration leans into its mission to find new, horrific ways to terrorize immigrants, many LGBTQ migrants, particularly trans women, fleeing violence in Central America are faced with an impossible choice: remain in countries where they face violence and abuse, or cross into the U.S., where they may be denied asylum and face additional violence.”
It seems that if you show up at the border – or, more likely, get caught crossing it illegally – you can claim anti-LGBT discrimination in your home country and get asylum. Or it was that way in the good old days.
Now, Gupta says “the administration has tightened its controls at the border, aims to prosecute all undocumented adults as criminals, weakened the asylum-seeking process, and dismantled LGBTQ protections across the board.”
The fear is that these trans women will be denied asylum and sent home. But there’s also this:
“Trans women in immigrant detention are especially vulnerable to abuse. A 2016 Human Rights Watch report found that in 28 cases in the U.S. between 2011 and 2015, more than half of trans women were detained alongside men, where many were sexually assaulted. Half of the women in detention were placed in solitary confinement, which is another form of abuse.”
Our immigration personnel are so benighted they haven’t figured out the special treatment required by .4 percent of the people they encounter.
