I’m really getting sick and tired of the dishonesty and reporting on this subject.
After reading everything available from anything resembling a credible source this is what I’m finding.
If you follow the legal process as a refugee and present yourself at the border asking for asylum and there is room to do so you are taken to a detention center awaiting processing. If it appears you may have a valid claim, you will be held pending a hearing.
In these cases if parentage can be established the parents and kids are not separated.
If however you sneak into the country illegally are interdicted you are properly and rightfully arrested for illegal entry.
If at that time you claim asylum you will be processed accordingly but you will most likely be separated from your kids just like any other criminal who is arrested and jailed for an offense.
Whether the kids come in with or without a parent, the rules are the same for how unaccompanied kids are treated and yes, when separated from their parents they become “unaccompanied minors”.
The detention centers where those kids are being held are absolutely not the gulags and concentration camps being reported and sworn to by democrats.
The conditions the kids are living in are no worse than those US military personnel live in every day especially during things like basic training.
Their quarters are clean, modern, temperature controlled, have running water, hot meals, snacks, activities, supervision and care.
The parents are using these kids in an attempt to circumvent US law and get special treatment over illegals who don’t show up with kids and democrats in this country are doing nothing but encouraging more to do the same and to further split the country over the issue.
