The grieving families of some Korean War veterans can finally get some closure now that their loved ones’ remains will be transported back to the United States so they can rest in eternal peace at home.
President Trump made good on yet another promise when the U.S. military moved 100 caskets to the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea so the remains of U.S. soldiers who died during the Korean War can be returned to their families.
Today UNC moved 100 wooden Temporary Transit Cases, built in Seoul, to the JSA. We are preparing to receive and transport remains in a dignified manner when we get the call to do so.

More than 36,000 U.S. soldiers died during the Korean War between 1950 and 1953. Of those, more than 5,000 were killed in North Korea, and their remains are still unaccounted for. For decades, their grief-stricken American families begged for the return of the fallen soldiers’ remains, but their pleas fell on deaf ears until President Trump took office.
The efforts to recover all the bodies is an ongoing process that will take years, but thanks to Trump, it has started.
It’s tragic enough to lose a loved one, but to not be able to give those who made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of their nation a proper burial is heartbreaking. North Korea is expected to hand over the remains over the next few days, Yonhap News reported.
President Trump negotiated for the return of the fallen heroes’ remains with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who agreed to the complete nuclearization of the Korean peninsula at their historic summit in June 2018.
“They’ve already sent back, or in the process of sending back, the remains of our great heroes who died in North Korea during the war,” Trump said this week.
Ever since President Trump won widespread praise for negotiating the denuclearization of North Korea on June 12, the media have aggressively pushed anti-Trump propaganda masquerading as “news” by blaming him for the decades-long immigration crisis.
Many noted that the nonstop coverage started the same day that the damning IG report came out amid escalating reports that Barack Obama’s administration had separated tens of thousands of children from their parents and even starved and beat the kids.

The Daily Caller’s Derek Hunter noted: “Weird how this wasn’t an outrage until the day the IG report came out, and wasn’t the media obsession until the hearings this week. Almost like it’s being used as a distraction, or something…”

As a candidate, Trump vowed to protect the U.S. borders, stamp out MS-13 gangs, and overhaul the broken immigration system. Now the press and liberals are attacking him for following through on his campaign promises. It’s probably because they’re not used to a politician actually delivering what he promised.
While President Trump consoled the moms and dads whose children were murdered by illegal immigrants, this is what CNN’s Jim Acosta did:
It would be nice if liberals put their money where their mouths are.
I have yet to see a single person from Hollywood offering to foot the $35,000 annual bill for every unaccompanied illegal alien child.

While liberals are crying crocodile tears over illegals, they blithely ignore mass homelessness in their own backyards.
Highest homeless population in the United States:
New York City…76,501
All have Democrat mayors, Democrat city councils, and all voted for Hillary by 80%

While North Korea is erasing its anti-American propaganda, liberals are increasing it.
Remember what this faux liberal outrage is really all about: Increasing their voting bloc by mass-importing illegal immigrants and refugees.
If illegals overwhelmingly, illegally, voted Republican, the Democrats would be putting land mines at the border. Believe me.

Over 90,000 kids were detained under Obama. And no one cared
