The Trump administration is considering a new family separation policy. Stephen Miller is determined to act, arguing that separating kids from their parents deters illegal border crossings. Big scoop from WaPo's &
I asked Trump about this WaPo scoop that admin is considering a new family separation policy. He replied, "We’re looking at everything," and explained that he thinks the initial policy helped deter illegal border crossings.
The White House is actively considering plans that could again separate parents and children at the U.S.-Mexico border, WaPo reports. Stephen Miller is advocating for tough measures because he believes the earlier separations worked.

It is deeply disturbing that this administration continues to look for ways to cause harm to small children.
They haven’t even managed to return the children they took away in the first round of zero tolerance to their parents. That they would even consider this should send a strong wake up call to voters about the need for Democratic majorities on the Hill.

NO! America - we can’t let this happen: Trump administration weighs new family-separation effort at border
This would be a moral fiasco —again— and a political catastrophe. There is no desire for family separation. None. Border security has been an issue for two decades and never has it involved deterrence or “binary” choices. Just a terrible idea. Stop it.
