The Trump administration has separated thousands of children from their parents who try to enter the country illegally seeking asylum. The children are being held in chain-linked fence facilities until authorities can find a foster home for them, sometimes thousands of miles away from their parents who have been arrested and treated as criminal, simply for bringing their child into the United States seeking a better life. The Trump administration is the first presidential administration to separate parents from their kids at the border.
Imagine it must be for a child to not only leave behind your home, but to also be ripped away from your family, not understanding the language well enough to communicate, and being passed off from place to place and treated like a prisoner. More than 2300 children have been removed from their parents since The Trump administration started this practice 5 weeks ago.
