Your view is just not the whole story.
Oh I agree
I just saw that one. One of the more egregious abuses that's taking place.
These children are being traumatized by their treatment AFTER they entered the United States.
Your words are correct. This is just not the whole picture.

Re: families belong together.
Yes, back where they came from.
Their guardians ARE the US government. How would you manage 1,000 children who don't speak the language? Bad situation with no good remedy. You can't keep the families together in jail. Should the parents not be in jail? Suggest an alternative?

No argument about the conditions. Suggest an alternative.
Build a wall?

When so many come in at one time the facility gets over loaded. You can't keep the children in jail with the parents,
