On the same day the Trump administration said it would reunite thousands of migrant families it had separated at the border with the help of a "central database," an official was admitting privately the government only had enough information to reconnect 60 parents with their kids, according to emails obtained by NBC News.

"[I]n short, no, we do not have any linkages from parents to [children], save for a handful," a Health and Human Services official told a top official at Immigration and Customs Enforcement on June 23, 2018. "We have a list of parent alien numbers but no way to link them to children."

• They instituted an inhumane policy that resulted in thousands of children being taken away from their parents

• They detained these children and families longer than allowed under the Flores settlement

• They were ordered by a judge to reunite them immediately and claimed for months that they had a "central database" linking kids to parents

• No such database existed, and the officials who said it did knew that


This is completely indefensible. They treated these families and children with less care than farmers treat livestock.

It’s quite common to look back on history and say “wow, those people really got it wrong, what a terrible time that must have been.”

I get the sense as I look around what’s happening in the world, that we’re just living like that from moment to moment.

I’ve genuinely never felt less hope about our future. It’s not even so much about where we are at the moment, but the direction of travel is all wrong.

It's ok, you can put them to work.

As a note, the previous administration also detained children and families longer than allowed by Flores, and no one knows how many were separated for whatever reasons as no records!! were kept about the numbers.

The current administrations policies are sh*t tho, and completely indefensible, you are correct.

Our 'leaders' are pretty much trash.

Incidentally, that is what happened to orphans in the US in the 1800s. Three guess how that turned out.

Yeah, put them on a chain gang helping build the wall. Two birds with one stone.

They build from the other side, obviously.

Don't tell Trump. He might not figure out the logistics of that.

To be the guy that takes a joke and adds a serious note. Other than talking about the wall and token visits to the border I highly doubt trump has actually EVER considered the logistics of the wall.
