Reuniting children with parents

Why has no one suggested using DNA to match parents and children separated by the heinous immigration fiasco we are suffering through. Seems to me that asking parents and children to provide a swab then running it through the same process that these DNA genealogy services use would provide a provable, undeniable match between children and their parents. I read about a GoFundMe page that was started asking for $1,500 to aid these immigrant cases and ended up with over $15,000,000!!! Seems that some of that money could be used for DNA testing, for example. AmIright?

1. MyHeritage.com and 23&me are both providing free DNA kits for the parents and children

who have been separated at the border. They will then provide the test results to the lawyers and agencies involved in reunification.

2. You know, sometimes I just love folks.

This is totally awesome and I'm so proud of both of those companies.

3. Even an ad-hoc spreadsheet would halp. They're telling me that all

the Big Brains at DHS and ICE and the rest never thought of that at the time?

I'm sure they were all assigned a number*. Geez, just crank up the spreadsheet program and start typing!




* Not tattooed on their wrists, hopefully -- no matter how much Stephen Miller might have liked the idea.
