Biden Administration Works To Reunite Separated Families, Older Policies In Place Blocking Efforts


  1. I think any reasonable person would agree SOME separations are necessary and/or unavoidable. But, what is more important is how you conduct these very difficult situations. First only remove as a last resort. Second, make sure you have the information necessary to reunify when needed. Thirdly, Transfer children out of detention Centers and to a child specific facility within 24hrs… this is just the lowest bar requirements.

  2. This is a very good idea. Both federal law and individual state law make it illegal for minors to make life-changing decisions. Minors cannot engage in contracts, minors are kept separate from adult offenders and there are a multitude of laws protecting minors from making life-changing mistakes.
    We also have to respect science when it is clearly proven that the human brain does not reach full maturity until a person is in their 20s. So this is another reason why we should not allow minors to make life-changing mistakes.
    The foreign national children that we now have living in conditions that AOC describes as concentration camps must now be returned to their home country. They must be reunited with their parents or their families in their home country. By law we cannot allow these foreign nation or children that are in our country to remain here and we must return them back to their family in their home country. It’s the law.

  3. Nice to see a bit of humanity and organization back in the White House, but we really need immigration reform.

    1. The Trafficking of kids is back to full steam ahead. Imagine the starved market after the 4 year dry spell.

  4. Yes, here in America if you’re arrested and detained for a crime , your kids do not get to come with you.

  5. Originators of separating families won’t be held accountable…. jan 6th another example. Only the rioters not the instigators.

  6. “Biden Administration Works To Reunite (Trump) Separated Families…” thereby reminding us, yet again, that “Jan621” Insurrectionist DJT is “utterly incompetent” as per the words of both his own Federal Judge elder-sister Maryanne Trump Barry and his own Clinical Psychologist niece Dr. Mary Trump. May “Imp2POTUS45” always hear “You’re fired” via the unwavering reality of election results that reject him who is the cause of “Mourning In America.”

    1. The Trafficking of kids is back to full steam ahead. Imagine the starved market after the 4 year dry spell.
      (Pray for them HeartDoc, I’m praying for them AND YOU!)

  7. While Trump was forming a coup, he should have been reuniting families, the damage he left behind.

  8. If you didn’t invite people to come parents wouldn’t be sending their children with human traffickers.

    1. @Jay Gibson Why on earth would they need to be investigated?
      BTW, at least you admit that trump used an independent branch as his own.

    2. @Jay Gibson FFS.. You always get all illiterate when you get humiliated..
      Again, why would he?

    1. So you are saying Trump was “bringing in illegal immigrants” too? Where were you when border crossings spiked twice under Trump?

  9. Any mention about this on Fox News or is it still, “Biden opened the borders and let all the criminals in”?

  10. Great reporting from former HuffPost team 👏🏽👏🏻👏🏿👏🏽👏🏾👏🏻🥰😘

  11. Investing in crypto now should be in every wise individuals list, in some months time you’ll be ecstatic with the decision you made today.

    1. My first investment with Mr Ryley Bauer gave me the assurance that have made me invest without the fear of losing, I got four of my friends involved with him already

    2. I’m from the UK, I and my colleagues gave him a try and it has been good returns of our investment, Thanks Mr Ryley Bauer

    3. I’ve got 12th winning thanks to Mr Ryley Bauer he’s really the best, I’ve made £16,400 in 18 days working with him

    4. Really y’all know him? I even thought I’m the only one he has helped walk through the fears and falls of trading

    5. Yes I can believe that, I got victory with him, I was so sad after receiving the first try knowing I invested so low with fear😓😫

    1. Especially the ones being sent to ‘market’ after the 4 year dry spell. Horror awaits them.
