Trump Administration Took Thousands More Migrant Children from Parents, Report Says

The Trump administration separated thousands more migrant children from their parents at the U.S. border than has previously been made public, according to an investigative report released Thursday, but the federal tracking system has been so poor that the precise number is hazy.

According to a report issued Thursday by the Department of Health and Human Services’s inspector general, the separated children include 118 taken between July and early November — after the administration halted a short-lived family separation policy that provoked a political firestorm and public outrage.

The report estimates that thousands more youngsters were taken into government custody from early in the Trump administration and through last summer.

When immigration enforcement officials transferred those youngsters into HHS custody, they said the biggest reason was that their parents had criminal histories. But information on the parents’ criminal records often was so sketchy that it is unclear whether the separations were warranted or whether the children can be safely returned to their families, the report said.

    Round them all up and bring them to justice,and lock them all up! Donald J.Trump, Jeff Sessions,John Kelly,Stephen Miller and others.These immigrants left their countries to seek a better life in the United States,and to flee from violence,gangs, and corruption. Other than seeking asylum and denying it, Donald J. Trump separates children from their parents,puts them in cages then shuffles them around the country.
    Glad that the walls are closing in on this racist motherF,as he continues to hold innocent federal employees hostage for 28 days now. By refusing to pay them,but his day in federal court will come for all the crimes he has committed . As Buzzfeed has now unveiled that Donald J.Trump asked his lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to congress.
    Donald Trump once said that he was going to drain the swamp, but instead added his own sewage waste to the swamp.
    AG,William Barr should recuse himself at once,he may think that he is Donald J. Trump’s get out of jail free pass.
