While the federal government crows about all of the families that they have reunited for the 2,000 kids that they took from parents seeking asylum...

...ICE has stolen away nearly 13,000 more children. They are making almost no effort to reunite these children with parents/guardians. They aren't under court order to do so for these kids. And where a parent or guardian might otherwise be available, the prospect of deportation and the daunting new bureaucracy is keeping some parents from claiming their kids.

...The administration appeared to move to address that on Tuesday, when it announced that it will triple the size of a temporary “tent city” in Tornillo, Tex., to house up to 3,800 children through the end of the year. Immigrant advocates and members of Congress reacted to the news with distress, because conditions are comparatively harsh in such large overflow facilities, compared with traditional shelters.

Facilities like the one in Tornillo are also more expensive to operate, according to Representative Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut, the ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations subcommittee that funds the shelter program. She said such facilities cost about $750 per child per day, or three times the amount of a typical shelter.

“You are flying in the face of child welfare, and we’re doing it by design,” Ms. DeLauro said. “You drive up the cost and you prolong the trauma on these children.”

Federal authorities said they were dealing with high levels of illegal border crossings and requests for asylum. “The number of unaccompanied alien children apprehended are a symptom of the larger issue of a broken immigration system,” Evelyn Stauffer, press secretary for the Department of Health and Human Services, said in a statement. “That is why H.H.S. joins the president in calling on Congress to address this broken system and the pull factors that have led to increasing numbers at the U.S. border.”


Great way to funnel money to contractors, tho.

It's just like summer camp. The children will look back at this time with fondness. All of them but especially Don, Jr. Eric and Ivanka



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
