As you know, President Trump signed an executive order earlier ending the separation of children from their parents at the border. Even though Sen. Chuck Schumer asked Trump for the EO, Democrats are predictably still continuing with the criticism. Among those Dems is Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, who says Trump’s EO “criminalizes asylum-seekers”:
Make no mistake: the President is doubling down on his ‘zero tolerance’ policy. His new Executive Order criminalizes asylum-seekers and seeks to indefinitely detain their children.

Durbin spitting?over Trump's executive order:
"His new Executive Order criminalizes asylum-seekers and seeks to indefinitely detain their children. Locking up whole families is no solution at all."
Asks Rs to "call for an end to this monstrous Trump Administration policy."

Reality check time, courtesy of Brit Hume:
People who cross the border illegally whether for asylum or any other purpose require no criminalization. They’ve already committed a crime. Trump’s order today does nothing to change that. Trump is simply refusing to go back to the old practice of catch and release. https://t.co/t7LFyVppXg

Now there’s a buzzkill for the liberals.
And, we've seen how catch and release goes…
