    Reuniting these families should be priority #1, don't you agree?




    If these kids sneaked into America illegally, what exactly do you want us to do with them?

That’s reason enough to justify temporary separation while verifying if they’re even related or legal guardians regardless of Trump’s motives.
    and is it also a fact that the Trump Administration initiated a policy of removing children from parents who were seeking asylum and putting them in detention centers?

    Or are you in denial of that plain ugly fact?

    And claiming that only the Democrats want them to come? All this despite the fact that neither party addressed the issue of illegal immigration for decades, regardless of who held the White House and Congress?

    Did they come on their own, or did their parents bring them?
    And when did it become illegal to seek asylum in this bastion of liberty and human rights?

Instead they urged: “Please present yourselves at a port of entry and seek to enter legally and safely.”

    But what the US authorities failed to acknowledge after the young girl’s death just after she was taken into US custody, was just how difficult it is to ask for asylum at any port of entry into the US along the sprawling border with Mexico.

    Yes, the Trump administration documented a policy for an existing practice.

    A deliberate policy of removing children from their families in order to discourage asylum seekers is, indeed, unprecedented. There is no "record set by Obama" in that evil policy, as it wasn't made a policy until Trump made it one.

    No, this thread is not about illegal border crossers. It is about taking children from their parents, then losing track of where the parents even are.

    An illegal border crosser who asks for asylum when he is caught is still an illegal border crosser and illegal immigrant
