In May, the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy on the southern border, prosecuting any adult who entered the country illegally in order to crack down on the surge in the number of immigrants crossing the border.
Parents traveling with children are separated from their kids while they face legal proceedings. Two U.S. officials said HHS was not given proper warning of the new policy and was caught unprepared at the influx of children.
“What’s happening now is a broad indication of a total lack of planning or forethought for the policy they enacted,” said Peter Boogaard, a former DHS and White House official in the Obama administration who is now a spokesman for the immigration reform group FWD.us. “They didn’t think this through at all — what it would mean for kids, for their parents and for the operational challenges.”
Border patrol agents and other agencies are now acting as babysitters. Is this what they signed up for?
Since children are separated, they face court proceedings alone and without their parents.
