This is a bad idea (from Jezebel):
The Department of Homeland Security is considering a measure that would separate women and children crossing illegally into the United States from Mexico, according to three government officials who spoke to Reuters.
The change in policy would allow the government to keep parents in detention while awaiting asylum hearings, while their children would be put into protective custody with the Department of Health and Human Services (a form of detention the department refers to as the “least restrictive setting,” whatever that means). Prolonged detention of children is currently forbidden by a federal appeals court ruling, and families are generally released from detention as they await the results of the asylum process.
Where have I heard this before?
I’m asking again, 50 years from now, do DHS and ICE agents want their grandchildren and great-grandchildren to vilify them as if they were the German soldier in this clip.
