Trump administration wants 2 years to find the children it lost.

ďIf the government believed finding these children was a priority, they could do it quicker than two years,Ē
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/06/us/family-separation-trump-administration.html

In the meantime, the US government canít say whether any of the missing children have fallen victim to sex abuse or other violent crime; canít say whether any of them have been illegally adopted or sold into slavery; and canít say whether they are getting adequate food, clothing, shelter, health care, or an education. In short, they canít say for sure whether a particular child is alive and well or buried somewhere in an unmarked, shallow grave.

This, in 2019 America.

1. "There is sobbing of the strong, and a pall upon the land,

but the People, in their weeping, bare the iron hand:
beware the People weeping, when they bare the iron hand"

4. Because we cannot say we didn't know.

Another chilling part from that poem:

For they killed him in his kindness,
In their madness and their blindness.
And his blood is on their hand.

2. Run out the Clock folks.

They,meaning the Trump Administration, did this knowing full well this outcome was their desired out come would be what is happening.

This way they can blame the next Congress for not doing enough to fix the problem they created.

3. How do they think a small child of 5 or 6 will be able to even

remember their parents after a 2 year separation? I hope to god that these poor people can someday sue the f**king idiot and his US government for millions.

5. Might be intentional.

They will then argue in state, family courts that permanent separation is ďin the best interest of the child.Ē

7. The judge should give them financial incentives, like big fines, for each day a child is separated.

It can come out of the wall budget.
