Quartz has a decent investigation of what’s happening at the southern border.

Data show taking US immigrant kids from their parents is ridiculous

Asked about the logic behind the policy this week, a DHS official also emphasized the “welfare of the children” to Quartz:

When dealing with families that cross the border, our primary responsibility is to ensure the welfare of the children. Unfortunately, we continue to see too many cases of children being used by smugglers, traffickers, and TCOs [transnational criminal organizations] in an attempt to circumvent our laws and gain entry.

Yet statistics from the department itself show how incredibly rare that situation is. In fiscal year 2017, there were just 46 cases of an immigrant coming across the US’s southern border who fraudulently claimed a child was theirs, DHS told Quartz, out of a total of 303,916 apprehensions. That means the situation happens in 0.015% of all cases.

In the first six months of fiscal 2018, there have been 191 cases of an immigrant fraudulently claiming a child was theirs, DHS says, out of 211,821 apprehensions. That’s 0.09% of all cases.

On the other hand, out of the more than 7,635 “unaccompanied alien children” that Immigration and Customs Enforcement has referred to the Office of Refugee Resettlement in recent years, the government doesn’t know where 1,475 of them are, an ORR official said in April. That means the US has lost 19.3% of all immigrant kids it is in charge of.

Fascist, racist, police state continues through a barrage of bald-faced lies.

Conclusive proof that it is Trump’s policy to separate children from their families at the border

We have crossed over into a sort of psychotic barbarism, leaving the civilized world for the foreseeable future.

Refugee Office That Lost 1,500 Kids Not ‘Legally Responsible’ For Finding Them: Official

Wagner also said that the “ORR is not legally responsible for children after they are released from ORR care” and handed over to a sponsor. In 2017 alone, more than 40,000 children were taken from the U.S.-Mexico border by the Department of Homeland Security and handed over to the ORR.

This empire becomes more evil by the hour.
