I'm guessing the govt has lost track of where, and who, all these immigrants' children are.

I betcha. Knowing how incompetent this administration is. So many kids, so many immigrants. One agency assigning numbers to the children. Different agencies & depts not recording those same numbers. Matching the numbers to the children. I bet that in a lot of cases they have no idea where a particular person's child is.

Do they hand a 5 year old a number and expect that child to keep it somewhere? Pin it to a shirt and expect it not to get lost or a shirt changed?

Reuniting these kids with parents will be a nightmare at best.

Sorry, this is just too hard.
No way that emoji covers what I am feeling.

FUCKING WHITE HOUSE, Honey

I KNOW that a sharp group of dedicated CARING people could organize a database of photos and information and get many of these children back with their parents, but this ICE brigade needs to get the fuck out of the way first.

I’m terrified and seething, goddamit, but I know there are many millions of us...
