Because the Trump administration was created to show us exactly what the devil looks like, in 2018 they issued a “zero-tolerance” border-crossing policy that separated migrant children at the southern U.S. border from their parents and enslaved them in cages. Then it turned out that the administration had been separating migrant children from their families since 2017 using a pilot program.
The Trump administration did so with no filing system, no logs, no Microsoft spreadsheet, no notes taken on the back of an envelope like Spades scores. Nothing. And now they have no idea where or even how to track down the parents of 545 children, according to a filing Tuesday from the American Civil Liberties Union, NBC News reports.
