Trump administration considering separating women, children at US-Mexico border

Source: Reuters



03 MAR 2017 AT 15:53 ET

Women and children crossing together illegally into the United States could be separated by U.S. authorities under a proposal being considered by the Department of Homeland Security, according to three government officials.

Part of the reason for the proposal is to deter mothers from migrating to the United States with their children, said the officials, who have been briefed on the proposal.

The policy shift would allow the government to keep parents in custody while they contest deportation or wait for asylum hearings. Children would be put into protective custody with the Department of Health and Human Services, in the “least restrictive setting” while until they can be taken into the care of a U.S. relative or state-sponsored guardian.

Currently, families contesting deportation or applying for asylum are generally released from detention quickly and allowed to remain in the United States until their cases are resolved. A federal appeals court ruling bars prolonged child detention.

44. The GOP hates Native Americans, too. During his speech this week, they burst into applause & shouts

when he boasted that the very pipeline so many US Americans want ended, is going through, anyway. The Republicans were beside themselves with glee.

Enough to make any sane person absolutely sick.

5. This is what the Nazis did when they got off the trains at

the camps. I don't like to make those comparisons, but they keep slapping me in the face. The mothers were often made to prostitute themselves in efforts to save their children or not be separated. Of course, they took advantage and lied. Thank goodness DT's goons would never take advantage.

Inhumane. At least, don't punish the innocent children.

17. What's the goal in causing as much misery and suffering as possible?

Why? What is the payoff in torturing mothers and their children? Follow the money... There must be a profit taking business scheme involved, maybe its private run detention centers for the moms and institutional group homes for kids. Someone has figured out how to get double funding from the government for separating moms from their kids... kaching!

25. Probably is a $$ motive, but trumpsters love to punish.

He gets his base all salivating with this cruelty to Mexicans. He has practically started a war with Mexico. Mexicans are generally a passive peaceful people, with a lot of passion and pride though (drug cartels excepted, but he's not really after those, in any intelligent way).

I hate him for what he has done to our Mexican friends.
Fuck your wall, DT.

I was especially enthralled by this gem from commissar of reich security John Kelly:

"Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly last week ordered immigration agents to deport or criminally prosecute parents who facilitate the illegal smuggling of their children."

Translated, the refugees brought their children with them when they fled here for survival, so we'll prosecute them for 'illegal child smuggling'.
