    The policy was only an expansion of Operation Streamline and the practice of separating children from people suspected of not being their parents. Joe was called out by CNN in September for lying about this in claiming these separations didn’t happen under the Obama administration.

    MY statements YOU are disputing were about illegal border crossers. Thus your drastic efforts to change the topic. Typical.

    An asylum seeker has to ask on US soil. Asylum seekers aren't hiding from the Border Patrol. They have to present themselves to ICE.

    Even it that's true, there's still a big difference between separating children from parents and separating them from people suspected of not having custody.

    Even when dealing with citizens within the USA, an adult with children who are not his/hers is subject to suspicion. The children need to be taken from their custody to protect them from potential kidnappers.

    The topic is what it has always been: the policy of removing children from their parents as a way of discouraging asylum seekers. If the subject was somehow changed to illegal border crossers, that was not my doing.

    And if they do so at the port of entry like the laws required, they are not charged with a crime. MY STATEMENT YOU WERE RESPONDING TO was

    Previous administrations did both. Children were separated from their parents when said parents were detained for prosecution under Operation Streamline and also if there was suspicion that they weren’t actually the child’s parents. The only things that changed between those policies and practices and what Trump did is DHS’s awareness of a child-leasing scam that cast suspicion on anyone with a child and an expansion of Operation Streamline to include first-time offenders.

    They were already orphaned by their parents, and sent up here with human traffickers. Many are molested on the way up here. Are you okay with that?

    That's false, you specifically brought up MIGRANTS who at this time are considered to be the illegal aliens crossing the border. You have now realized how very wrong you are about everything, and are trying to change the subject. You also brought up asylum seekers. Legal residents aren't seeking asylum.
