Trump Administration Considers Separating Families to Combat Illegal Immigration

Trump is a beast.

The New York Times reports:
The Trump administration is considering a new policy that would separate parents from their children when families are caught entering the country illegally, according to officials who have been briefed on the plans. The forceful move is meant to discourage border crossings, but immigrant groups have denounced it as draconian and inhumane.

Under current policy, families are kept intact while awaiting a decision on whether they will be deported; they are either held in special family detention centers or released with a court date. The policy under discussion would send parents to adult detention facilities, while their children would be placed in shelters designed for juveniles or with a “sponsor,” who could be a relative in the United States, though the administration may also tighten rules on sponsors.

The policy is favored by the White House, and has been approved by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, according to three officials at the Department of Homeland Security and one at the White House who have all been briefed on the proposal but declined to be named because they were not authorized to discuss it publicly.


  1. Just one step before the government cuts their hair and tattooes numbers in their forearms.

    I won't expect Trumpistas to care but it should be a cause for great concern that the government would consider treating human beings in such a bestial way, because it speaks volumes about the personality and moral constraint (or lack thereof) of those who presumably swore an oath to defend everyone's rights.

    1. And considering the death penalty doesn't act as a deterrent to murders, this will be just as effective as its stated goal. However, like the death penalty, it is just the state showing its true colors as all powerful.

    2. @Torres: This is a great move. We can't afford this vermin coming in anymore to become leftist voters. I know you like all manner of human refuse because of those alleged libertardian principles.

      We really need more white Europeans coming to America.

      ─ This is a great move. ─

      No, it's not. It's actually much more expensive to separate families that to keep them together.

      ─ We can't afford this vermin [...] ─

      Hmm, that reminds me of another character who used to call a whole slew of people 'vermin'...

  2. All illegals should be deported immediately. No need to have a bureaucracy considering their applications and prisons to house them.

    1. Re: PH,
      ─ All illegals should be deported immediately. ─

      "Immediately"? Why?

      ─ No need to have a bureaucracy considering their applications and prisons to house them. ─

      That is idiotic. How can you expect "Dem Illegulz That Takum Er Jebz!" to be deported without a bureaucracy and prisons to house them?

      Trumpistas seem to have a problem with gathering coherent thoughts. That's what happens when they listen to a leader who speaks like an 8-year-old brat.

  3. Awesome! Kick these criminals out already. I'm sorry their lives suck in their home countries, but we are not here to take refuse. All immigration should be stopped now even legal. We don't more trash from 'turd' world countries.

    Great move by Trump.
