Trump administration weighs new family separation effort at border

We’ve gone from “there is no policy” to “what about this one?”

‘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.’

‘One option under consideration is for the government to detain asylum-seeking families together for up to 20 days, then give parents a choice — stay in family detention with their child for months or years as their immigration case proceeds, or allow children to be taken to a government shelter so other relatives or guardians can seek custody.’
