Trump campaign spokesperson says parents of separated children don't want them back

[www.politico.com]

The Trump campaign’s communications director asserted on Friday that the reason some migrant families separated by the administration at the U.S. border have not been reunited is because the parents do not want their children back.

“The fact is it's not as simple as you make it sound or Joe Biden made it sound on the stage last night to locate the parents who are in other countries,” Murtaugh said. “And when they do locate them, it has been DHS’ experience that in many cases the parents do not want the children returned.”

Murtaugh also repeated that claim later in the interview with host John Berman.

“You have to locate the parents and when they are located in these other countries in many cases, John, the parents do not want the children sent back to them in their home countries.”

DHS spokesman Chase Jennings said that the agency “has taken every step to facilitate reunification of these families where the parents wanted such reunification to occur.”
“The simple fact is this: after contact has been made with the parents to reunited them with their children, many parents have refused,”
Jennings said in a statement.

However the preference of the parents of the hundreds of children at issue is unknown, as they have not yet been successfully contacted by the court-appointed steering committee tasked with the effort.

Murtaugh's opinion might be affected by the fact that his parents probably don't want to see him.

Murtaugh is the grandson of the late Danny Murtaugh. His grandfather was part of the Pittsburgh Pirates organization for some 30 years. During that time he fielded a lineup made entirely of Hispanics (a baseball first) and mentored Roberto Clemente.

How proud would grandpa be knowing his grandkid used his name to climb on the Trumpwagon?

If the assertion is that the parents don’t “want them back,” the truth is more likely that the parents don’t want them back living in the horrible conditions they all fled in the first place. Republicans LOVE to clip off the context of circumstances. In other words this situation is still one Republicans OWN. To blame the victims here is par for the course.

Did the interviewers ask why??

This is literally a foreign concept to parents living in first-world countries. We can’t imagine “pushing” our children away, when it’s been done for centuries in many counties, i.e. go-make-yourself-a-better-life-elsewhere. We do a lite version of that here by sending kids to an out of state college.
