4. I've read an article where an 8 year old was seperated from his father last July.

Supposedly, the government has been separating kids if caught when crossing if they suspect the parent(s) are coming over as gang/cartel members (i.e., felony level criminals) or if they suspect the child is being trafficked or and unaccompanied minor - travelling with people who are not family members - since 2004 or so.

It's apparently been changing since last March, depending on how the border patrol supervisor feels at the time in determining whether or not the parent is really a parent. It's only just become "zero tolerance" just in the last couple months.
