Contrary to what many might understandably believe, the U.S. is not being forced out, nor is the U.S. responding to national and international outrage over the Trump administration's policy of ripping young children from its undocumented parents' arms.

The move also comes in the days following the United States' president embracing the world's worst murderous dictator.
