US separated ’thousands’ more immigrant children

The US government may have separated ’thousands’ more immigrant children from their parents than previously known, an internal watchdog said on Thursday. The inspector general’s office determined that an uptick in separations began long before the ’zero tolerance’ policy was announced by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals.

Emotional propaganda:"think of the children" I am and these people show up to the border with no way to verify who they are or if they're the childs auctual parents. We need to seperate the kids at the border to prevent them from getting into the hands of human traffickers. It's the humane thing to do.

This occurs because illegal border crossers kidnap children, or use siblings they say are their children, to try and support their asylum case.

Wait it started in 2016. No way Obama let this happen. How was Trump separating kids while he was just a candidate.
