Just a note that should not get lost in all of this

Yes children are being ripped from their parents, supposedly to comply with a law that does not require that to happen. That is the primal outrage against humanity of course. But it seems families are then being further desecrated. Maybe I am missing something but it appears that siblings are being ripped apart from each other as well, sent to different cages and/or different states based on age and gender. These children all have lost their parents, only then to also lose each other, the last real solace available to them?

I haven't seen this commented on. Are those segregated by age and gender holding cages used only for children without siblings of a different gender, or are brothers and sisters being ripped apart also?

1. brothers and sisters ripped apart also.. NBC reported on the California facility where

brother and sister are housed separately but said to be allowed to see each other once a week for a short visit. And THAT was the "model" facility in CA. Gawd knows what is happening in TX

2. Thanks for the confirmation. Pure Evil

It undercuts even the most flimsy pretense Trump is using for his racist orders. This is pure inhumane punishment of those who dare trod on American soil to protect their children's lives from horrors. "Zero tolerance" can be twisted to result in parents being separated from children when prosecuted due to limits on children being housed in adult detention centers, all of which is legally avoidable in the first place of course. But even using Trump's transparently anti refugee racist logic - the children of a family detained after crossing a border CAN be kept together, that portion of the family can be kept intact. Young siblings usually cling to each other when fearful - they give comfort to each other, they help each other retain a shred of hope that they still are part of an actual family.

I would like someone in the national media to point this out.
