People need to go to jail for this shit. Not just up at the top, but the individuals enacting this policy on the ground. “Following orders” isn’t an excuse.
Not for those parents who were already deported.
At this point, some won’t know. They’re young enough, and separated long enough, they won’t recognize their parents even if they were in the same country (which many aren’t).
They aren’t psychopaths, though. They’re just horrible, racist assholes. They’re the sorts of people who, based on a rumor, start slaughtering their neighbors who are of a different religion/ethnicity. The uncomfortable truth that the Trump administration has made glaringly obvious is that the US isn’t fundamentally different from Rwanda or 1933 Germany.
