US lacked technology to track separated families: Report

The US government separated thousands of families despite knowing it lacked the technology to document and track their whereabouts, according to a report. The problem resulted in some parents languishing in custody for weeks without knowing the location of their children. The report also revealed that border officials planned to separate five times as many children than it did in 2018.

If a person commits any other crime and is taken into custody are they not separated from their children then as well?

Pathetic. So many heartless comments regarding people simply attempting to live somewhere better/safer for their families. Oh, and it’s Thanksgiving! A holiday that celebrates EXACTLY what the majority of our ancestors did! Hypocrisy at its finest. I suppose you all feel it would have been OK for native Americans to incarcerate then separate all of the Pilgrims and their families.

Here's an idea.... Don't invade my country, Don't get separated from your children... seems like an easy fix

Please raise our taxes - to pay for the technology and services enabling never-ending caravans of illegal border crossers to have all the conveniences they demand.

A simple bar code tattooed on their arm would have solved the problem.
