Trump Administration Considering Separating Mothers From Children at Mexico Border

Welcome to Trump World.

Reuters reports:
Women and children crossing together illegally into the United States could be separated by U.S. authorities under a proposal being considered by the Department of Homeland Security, according to three government officials.
Part of the reason for the proposal is to deter mothers from migrating to the United States with their children, said the officials, who have been briefed on the proposal.
The policy shift would allow the government to keep parents in custody while they contest deportation or wait for asylum hearings. Children would be put into protective custody with the Department of Health and Human Services, in the "least restrictive setting" until they can be taken into the care of a U.S. relative or state-sponsored guardian... 
In a statement to Reuters, DHS said: "The journey north is a dangerous one with too many situations where children - brought by parents, relatives or smugglers - are often exploited, abused or may even lose their lives. 
"With safety in mind, the Department of Homeland Security continually explores options that may discourage those from even beginning the journey," the statement said.
RW note: Safety would be allowing people not seeking government services to enter the country without harrasment. That would be safety.


  1. Absolutely. Safety is allowing any person who could be carrying a host of communicable diseases or any third worlder who may want to detonate himself in a crowd of infidels to come in, so long as they don't collect a welfare check.

  2. A decent, but soft move by POTUS.
    They should really be sent right back.

    Protecting the native born must be his first priority.

    They can become a parasite at any time once here.

  3. "Children would be put into protective custody with the Department of Health and Human Services"
    OMG, I really thought the "pizzagate" stuff was overwrought, but I shudder to think what those little ninas are gonna go through with THAT crowd. I'm serious. Not good.

    1. Yeah even when parents are complete scum and shouldn't been in charge of a kid these state agencies that handle children don't exactly scream safety. Essentially going from one bad situation to another isn't a net positive.

  4. I can't think of a better way to discourage migrants than the threat of placing the kids in the hands of GPS.

  5. Total distraction. The wall and enforcement is to keep us in and any thing that is not part of the control grid out.
