It's legal to seek asylum here from persecution in your home country, but Trump is preventing this, and is punishing innocent children. Revolting.

Has roughly the same effect as child rape -- making the child feel abused and helpless. Traumatizing a whole cohort of kids -- gonna come back to bite us.

And he's signed on to the bill to end this, right? Of course not, he's a Republican.

Are you all crazy? He's done nothing for the poor. learned from Ayn Rand only the rich are deserving of help. (See e.g. tax bill)

They’re not ‘cages.’ They’re freedom rectangles bounded on all sides by chain link liberty curtains.

Curious. The obvious legal thing to do here, is for the "next friend" of one of these children to bring a habeas corpus action for their release. Why not? No contact with relatives? Legal obstacles (might be, it's partly immigration law). But that is something.

If the government had kidnapped Madoff's grandchildren to deter him from further crimes, that wd have been torture and they'd have cried.

Forcibly taking children away from their parents and keeping them away is prison.equivalent to child rape. Has same traumatic effect.

People are seeing through mean-spirited people like you. The US putting children in concentration camps? Not OUR US!

Good for Laura Bush. She is showing more moral courage than any Republican in Congress right now.

Trump, 2016: MEXICO WILL PAY FOR THE WALL!!! Trump, 2018: THESE KIDS WILL NEVER SEE THEIR PARENTS AGAIN UNLESS CONGRESS PAYS FOR THE WALL!!!

Actually, the quote is, "The taxpayers will pay for that wall or those children will never get out of the camps." (Because Mexico told him to shove it, and he'd rather torture little brown-skinned kids anyway.)

Do you give them access to a point of entry? I hear that you stop the parents before then can reach an official point of entry. Anyway, you're kidnapping kids and keeping them away from their parents. Shame.

And the guys in the SDNY unit of the FBI who were helping Rudy help you? Strzok didn't actually DO anything. But they did, and of course that's OK with you.

60 senators are currently not supporting a bill to bar family separation at the border. 60.

If Paul Ryan wanted to stop children at the border being taken from their parents, he could introduce a bill this week and it’d get 300, maybe even 400, votes in the House. Pardon me if I’m less than concerned about how his Father’s Day went.

Like, what was false there? Nobody but Trump is making this happen. Prior presidents realized it was inhumane and didn't do it. Trump did.
