Trump split¿Whole? families

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« In recent days I started a post with, “I have an informant”, which explained the wide difference between an amiga in the barrio who knows hundreds of immigration stories, and me who knows few. “A family town apart” posted by WAPO today in youtube details a family where the mom and dad split voluntarily in their Central American home with plans that the dad would make the trip later with their school-age child. The mother and daughter got caught by US agents at the border and with the Trump policy the daughter was sent to Chicago while the mother was sent to Florida. In this case Trump did not separate a, “family” the family separated by choice, but Trump did separate a mother and daughter, and that mother and daughter were not just separated by a short distance and a short time. This WAPO feature vid reconciles between my informant account that she knows of zero cases where families cross the border together. This WAPO family did not get separated by Trump rather they chose a strategy that’s so common, and split up by choice. In their case Trump separated a mother and daughter. Trump’s policy lived for less than a year, and this country and some of the split families will be living with it for the balance of a lifetime. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us
