    So, instead of asking questions which have been already answered, why do not you answer MY questions?

    Do you object that this administration is threatening to veto a bill designed to offer humanitarian assistance because it does not provide funds related to TRump's immigration enforcement policies?
    If the dems are trying to pass a bill that republicans find objectionable then of course Trump should veto it. Why is it that the House cant put together a bipartisan bill on this issue?

    Translation:

    Here is the Senate trying to create a bill about the humanitarian crisis that includes what Trump wants regarding funds for immigration enforcement policies. It is obvious that the republicans use a humanitarian problem as a way to accomplish their political objectives regarding the funding of their immigration policies

    from the same link

    The bipartisan measure, approved on a 30-1 vote Wednesday, includes $793 million for Customs and Border Protection migrant care and processing facilities, $112 million for medical care and supplies such as clothing and hygiene products, and $300 million for U.S. marshals and the military services.

Incredulous.

    But I will do the work for you and actually give you the primary source from the White House itself

    https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-conten...r_20190624.pdf



    The EXECUTIVE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET

    STATEMENT OF ADMINISTRATION POLICY
    H.R. 3401 - Emergency Supplemental Appropriations for Humanitarian Assistance and
    Security at the Southern Border Act, 2019

    ....

    The Administration strongly opposes H.R. 3401, the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations
    for Humanitarian Assistance and Security at the Southern Border Act, 2019. After ignoring the
    Administration’s request for desperately needed funding to address the humanitarian crisis at the
    border for over a month, and despite the efforts of the House minority, the House majority has
    put forward a partisan bill that underfunds necessary accounts and seeks to take advantage of the
    current crisis by inserting policy provisions that would make our country less safe.
    The Administration is disappointed that neither the House nor Senate bills include necessary
    funding for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention.


    Do you buy it now?
    IOW, the trump administration is willing to let the detainees continue to live in squalid conditions and block funding to alleviate those conditions.

    And that’s the Democrats’ fault?!?
    Dear God, Please give trump a well deserved retirement, preferably starting no later than January 20, 2021.

    No reason to treat the migrants inhumanely or deny them some basic dignity. No excuses

    The US often does, and even where it is not directly or indirectly responsible, it has the power to intervene or to alleviate.

    There is no moral standpoint from where someone who calls themselves a good person can complain their tax dollars should not be spent on a little soap for migrant children apprehended at the border and separated from their families after they've undergone months of hardship to flee poverty and conflict.

    All the complaints and finger pointing about how they got there are irrelevant. They're here now, and they must be dealt with humanely. There is a social, religious and moral obligation to do so, and no reasonable moral grounds to refuse.

    Neither do I however holding ourselves accountable isn't the same thing as blaming, it's taking responsibility.
    Blame is an excuse. Taking responsibility is holding ourselves accountable, and without that, you have "inaccountability" which is irresponsible.

    I cannot find any sort of justification for continuing to support irresponsibility.

    A Trump official tried to argue that detained children don’t need soap, toothbrushes, or beds to be ‘safe and sanitary’ while in Border Patrol custody
