1. The issue with some passport denials for Border citizens actually has been going on for a long time. Here is an article from 2009, remember Obama was President then, not Donald Trump.

2. The problem stems from convictions of South Texas midwives for fraudulently registering births they didn’t deliver, between 1960 and the early 1990’s. The Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) lists at least 65 midwives who have been convicted of fraud since the 1960s
3. US officials have said the cases uncovered forgeries for about 15,000 people actually born in Mexico.
4. In September 2008, ACLU filed a suit charging that the State Department questioned the citizenship of virtually all midwife-delivered Mexican-Americans born in southern border states.
Why wasn't the media and the left incensed at that time?
5. Hardly any reporting took place then to highlight the plight of people that were facing this issue for a long time. But right now it is politically expedient and helps stir up rabid emotions amongst those incapable of researching independently. That is gullible idiots
6. What is occurring right now is the desperate digging up of old things that can be newly attributed to Trump in the fervent hope that something will stick. Unfortunately in the internet age, people forget, media is demented but the internet never forgets.
7. In today's age, ignorance is an act of exertional volition, because there are literally no barriers to dispelling it other than intellectual languor and inherent stupidity. And the languidly stupid are kept stuporous and moribund by having them gorge on drivel.
