Illegal minors can’t be imprisoned w/ adult parents. Bush & Obama released all onto US soil til judges ruled. Rife w/ abuse.

Trump stopped this by separating illegals & their kids, holding both in jails & camps. All to force DC to fix the broken system.

It’s a brutal strategy.
While we debate whether #Trump’s strategy is right (or humane), the facts are being distorted.

Case in point: the holding facilities for kids (both accompanied by adults and those running on their own).

The left paints them as Nazi camps. They’re not.
Critics also claim that #Trump’s policies are resulting in kids being lost or abandoned. You see it in the frothy #WhereAreTheChildren cries for justice.

Trump’s approach, on the other hand, tears apart some families fleeing the chaos of drug wars & corruption.
Keeping families together in a US facility seems an obvious, humane solution. But even that is imperfect.

Examples: How does an adult prove they’re the parent if they have no documents? What if you house sex traffickers who claim a kid is theirs?…
