Why?

Maybe because they're deemed ineligible for asylum?

I won't disagree that the system is probably flawed, but do you honestly think we should just open the border to any and everyone?

If I were in charge, I'd start a modern day Ellis island on the southern border. That way you could vet those coming in. Anyone else that tries to skirt the process probably has something to hide because there'd be no reason for them to illegally cross the border.

The law does not matter. Being right, whether with edicts or a sharpie, is the important thing.


The law doesnt matter?


Not when Trump is the one breaking it.

Using children as scapegoats?

You obviously do not know the meaning of the word scapegoat.

This thread is about the IG report on the children who have been detained and separated from their parents.
This is the IG report.... from trumps people.
(PDF link)
oig.hhs.gov...

No one is asking you to take care of anyones children. ( as if)
The point is that the parents were there to take care of their own children until the assholes took them away.

So these people that are simply looking for a better life for their children should either leave their children behind in the "#hole" country they're fleeing or send the child off on their own?


Or immigrate legally.

I’m not sure why that option is always ignored by people like you.

How did we go from torturing and traumatizing migrant children to open borders?

Seeking asylum is legal immigration.

You're only looking for a better life outside your home, if your home is in a "sh**hole country".

Only when it is applied for.
There is no true asylum in the US
Well , since the wetfoot/dryfoot policy allowed to Cubans.
And , Obama ended that.

In the summer of 2017, prior to the formal announcement of the zero-tolerance policy, ORR staff and officials observed a steep increase in the number of children who had been separated from a parent or guardian by DHS (“separated children”) and subsequently referred to ORR for care. 1 Officials estimated that ORR received and released thousands of separated children prior to a June 26, 2018, court order


For those who think this was Obama's doing.

If they crossed into Mexico or Canada first and did not seek or refused asylum in those countries, then it does appear that they are more selfishly concerned about getting to America only and not simply seeking safe sanctuary from their country of origin. I cannot help but place the blame on the parents. Mexico may not be America, but if it is not better than their country origin...then their asylum claim already seems suspect!

Best they stop traipsing thousands of miles I say. Good for them in the long run.

But the best way for a parent to guarantee they get separated from their kids is to go to a border that says "If you cannot be verified, you just might end up being separated."

It's not the child's fault, it's the parents.
