Trump tp miss deadline to reunite children under five with families

The US government has only managed to reunite two of 102 migrant children under the age of five with their families after they were separated at the southern border, and has admitted it will not be able to meet a federal district judge’s deadline for them all to be reunited by Tuesday.

In a hearing on Monday, the Department of Justice told Judge Dana Sabraw that it expects to reunite another 54 children by tomorrow’s 10pm deadline, which would leave approximately 46 children separated.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which sued the government over family separations forcing Sabraw’s ruling, slammed the government for using a long, drawn-out administrative process that it said “makes no sense”.

“These kids have already suffered so much because of this policy,” said ACLU attorney Lee Gelernt. “Every extra day apart just adds to that pain.”

TVNL Comment:  Trump and his thugs have no clue as to where these children, or in some cases the parents, are. No records were kept.  No one cared.  The children were stolen.  The Trump supporters are complicit in these crimes.  They applaud his cruelty.  One day the thugs will come for them, and no one will be left to help.
