    This problem has been happening for years but you didn't care about it until Trump became president. but it's okay to pretend that you care about immigration.

    Estrangement and separation of families is not a new tactic 😥

    He's angry because he don't understand why she left him. That happened to my sister and I. It's gonna take a minute for her to get his trust again!!!

    but 500 remain without their families.... every day makes it worse when they return.... they are too young to realize the separation was done at someone else's behest.... get the rest of these kids home!

    If you didn't cross the border illegally, then this wouldn't have happened

    Part of me is sympathetic to this, but these people KNEW that crossing the border was illegal and yet they CHOSE to disregard the law. We must put the blame where it belongs - with the individual illegal. Law enforcement is doing its job. Adults need to be vetted. I'm tired of all the sympathy for the people who choose to disregard the law.
