Trump and his AG are the culprits on this.

The policy is wrong and should end now. Trump is using this shift in policy to gain leverage with Congress for wall funding. He tried it with Dreamers and it failed to produce what he wanted. Now, he's using small children and families to extort the money. What's even more pathetic is watching all his little freaks coming up with all sorts of lies and false hypotheticals to defend him in this policy shift. They are following him down the morally bankrupt path.

One of the absolute worst was Pack using the Nielsen line that this was like summer camp for the kids. Sorry, but a detention center with what amounts to a cage sleeping on the floor is not summer camp. Add to that the fact that kids are becoming what could amount to permanent separation due to the lack of organization or a plan for how to deal with this policy shift.
...
This is Trump's Katrina.

Along with this we hear the infamous praise from Trump of Nielsen that sounds so familiar with Katrina. “Browney, you’re doing a heck of a job.”

So... It's wrong to take children out of the home of a pedophile?

Tell them to quit trying to enter the country illegally and they want be separated from their children-if a single mom robs a liquor store shouldn’t she be sent to prison-these people are breaking the law and tax payers have to support them

The Liberal trolls are showing their ignorance again.
Next Headlines... “New Bank Robbery Method Successful. Criminals now wear a front and back Baby Pack with child and calmly enter bank with gun and clean out the cash with no fear of being shot at and a Stand Down to police on any thought of chasing the robber after getting away in his vehicle with new liberal policy “Kids First” to protect them from accident”. It’s a new day in America.

It is truly amazing to learn and read of the thought processes some people twist themselves into to support evil.

Makes about as much sense as "Tell them to quit trying to enter the country illegally and they won't be gassed and cremated in ovens."

Really, if you're willing to do permanent damage to children and unnecessarily separate families, I don't see any reason why you won't use the same excuses for that travesty to justify any other travesty. If your moral compass is so putrefied that you can't discern it to be wrong to cage children and separate families unnecessarily just to promote a xenophobic political agenda, you're beyond the reach of sanity and morality.
