Trump officials refuse to answer whether they'd put their own kids in migrant family jails




“You would send your child to these centers?” the bad-ass from Hawaii asked Trump officials who were testifying about the administration’s barbaric “zero tolerance” policy kidnapping children from parents at the border. “Yes? No?”

“I—I—it’s—that’s a—that’s a difficult question to answer,” stammered Jennifer Higgins of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), who instead tried to blame parents for their children getting kidnapped, saying that “it’s difficult to put myself in the position of an individual who takes a dangerous journey in which their children would be harmed.”

“Mr. Albence,” Hirono said, moving on to Mr. Summer Camp himself, “would you send your child to [family residential centers]?”

”Again, I think we’re—we’re missing the point,” he replied, taking the baton from Higgins to accuse families fleeing violence of putting themselves into this position.
