To be clear, immigrants, legal or not, are people who want to improve their lives. To refer to them as animals or insects is to foster hate. What’s happening in Washington and on our border is sad, wrong, and unamerican.— Madeleine Albright (@madeleine) June 19, 2018
Yeah, sorry, but THERE IS NO LAW THAT REQUIRES SEPARATING FAMILIES.
Cute little Facebook graphics notwithstanding.
I'd suggest you read some facts, instead.
The level of cruelty is difficult to comprehend — and that’s how the administration wants it. #KeepFamiliesTogether— ACLU (@ACLU) June 19, 2018
Here's what they don't want you to know about family separation: https://t.co/pFFa02Ohqu
This toddler is about 12 months old. She was separated from relatives as part of the Trump administration's family separation policy. She is being held at a Brownsville shelter. I did not take the photo. It was supplied to me. pic.twitter.com/rq5zsfglbX— Manny Fernandez (@mannyNYT) June 20, 2018

Infants. Tiny babies.
Birth to 3 months is known by many as the “fourth trimester.” It is theorized human newborns have to emerge earlier than ideal because we have such large heads. As a result, we are born without fully developed neurological systems. https://t.co/3IAEuOPsKT
Many of these mothers are devout Christians. Here is a letter written yesterday by my client Alma, who is in custody, to her 12 yr old boy Mario, who was taken from her. She has no idea where he is. At one pt, she was threatened he would be killed. This is not America. #Basta pic.twitter.com/aryuTQJ0zr— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) June 20, 2018
Today, we met with 12 more detained mothers one on one in CA and TX to hear their stories and agree to assist them in their efforts to find their children. The sadness and pain they are experiencing cannot be described. We will not rest until this policy is changed. #Basta— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) June 20, 2018
I have witnessed a lot of drama, pain, and sadness in my legal career. And I have had many moments of doing everything in my power to hold myself together. I have never witnessed anything this upsetting. I will never forget. Toughest day of my career by far. Perhaps of my life.— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) June 20, 2018
We are discovering that most of our clients have had their children shipped away across many states (1,000 miles is not unusual). Some are facing deportation without their children and do not know if they will ever see them again. This is permanently destroying families. #Basta— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) June 20, 2018
An excellent piece by the succeeding NY Times. #Basta— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) June 19, 2018

Update on toddlers and girls: @HHSGov just offered me photos of facilities with girls and toddlers from 2016, long before zero tolerance was enacted.— Jacob Soboroff (@jacobsoboroff) June 19, 2018
I said no thanks.
Still trying to get in.
