Official says he warned Trump administration against family separation

A federal health official testified Thursday he warned three of President Trump’s appointees about the potential health risks of separating migrant children from their parents more than a year before the policy. Jonathan White, a career civil servant, was speaking at a hearing of the House Energy and Commerce oversight committee.

Children are seprated at the border because these people don't have the proper documentation when they show up at the border. There is no way to tell if the kids arive with their parents or with a smuggler and we're supposed to be the bad guys? No the bad guys are the parents who try to use their children as human pawns to enter a land that is not there own. They open their kids to cartels, coyotes, and sexual predators shame on them we're doing the right thing and the kids are getting put in better living facilities then the adults I don't feel bad.

And? These people are breaking the law of another country, there are consequences and they obviously knew that nothing good could come out of this if they got caught, yet, they still did it, now stick to the consequences.

I recall it was an Obama era judge who ruled that illegal alien children could not remain in detention centers. Obviously, in the Obama administration logic, that meant the entire family goes free.

I always find it interesting how HypoCrats in Congress pass laws they never intend to enforce and when they are enforced, they are shocked.
