This Bill would shut down Tornillo Tent Camp that currently detains 2,800 immigrant kids, meant to be "temporary" but the Gov't is extending into early 2019, as well as Homestead in FL which the Gov't plans to massively increase from 1350 to 2350 beds.https://t.co/9fegzGFtRW— BebopSpaceCowgirl (@jomareewade) December 30, 2018
Nearly 3,000 migrant children were affected this year by the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance policy. Under the unprecedented crackdown, children were separated them from their parents.— ProPublica (@ProPublica) January 1, 2019

Read the whole thread.
The law was broken by the ILLEGAL ALIENS not our government
Seeking asylum is not against the law.
Yes, taking the government to court for separating families. Unfortunately the line of the government is being sued for, and/or should be sued, puts immigrant kids very low on the court´s priority list.
Two wrongs to do not make a right. Your childish point is like when dad punishes one child, the other child says his brother did it also.
Two separate and individual casess both in law and morally.
Please stick to critizing the topic and not the poster.
Sorry, if it seems if I am critting the poster, I was not, as the poster was simply recycling the arguement that seems to justify the subject, e.g. it is OK to punish the kids, in an illegal way because they are here illegally, often through no fault of their own. The point of this thread is that it does not matter how they got here, what matters is how they are illegally being mistreate at this very moment. Saying that they are here illegally, is an immoral rationalization for what the U.S. is doing to them in the past, right now, in spite of the fact that our government has admitted that they wrong and have stopped doing so, which in fact is not true. This is already an old issue. No matter how bad the bookkeeping has been, if America accepted the immorality of this issue, every kid could have been but in contact with hes parents in less then a week. It is the post to which I was responding that was off topic.
