President Donald Trump’s Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) made a vile attempt to joke about Christmas by posting a photo of Santa Claus holding an identification card while proclaiming that he and his reindeer have all been cleared to enter the country. Needless to say, it backfired.
As we all know, thousands of migrant children have been taken away from their parents and locked away in cages on the border under Trump’s racist and cruel orders. It’s a crime against humanity that should result in him being tried at The Hague by the International Criminal Court.
Trump’s CBP agents have terrorized anyone who tries to enter the country, including journalists and American citizens. And they certainly don’t treat people like human beings.
Despite their inhumanity, they dared to post a Christmas message on Twitter, and they would have been better off if they hadn’t because it did not go well.
CBP claimed that even Santa needs clearance to enter the country to deliver presents.

Twitter users pounced on the misguided tweet, punishing CBP for seemingly suggesting it would arrest Santa, which is totally believable considering the way they treat kids.
Hope he brought gifts for these kids! pic.twitter.com/I7frD8YFM7

What sort of messed-up Regime jokes about detaining Santa and then has him pose with his papers?

Will Santa be bringing gifts to the kids in immigrant detention centers? How will he track them, since the government hasn’t?

Ummmmm, @NoradSanta used to sweetly and innocently let us all know where Santa might be on Christmas Eve … ? ?
Last we checked, Santa and his reindeer didn’t need @CBP’s permission for “entry into the United States.”
Merry Christmas? ?

Was he able to visit the kids locked in cages and maybe at least get them a flu shot for Christmas?

I don’t like this dystopia.

CBP should be ashamed for dragging Santa into their fascist crimes against humanity. And there’s a special place in hell for Trump for turning this government agency into the epitome of evil in his regime.
