Separating immigrant children from their parents is inhumane and should end

Under the Trump administration’s new zero-tolerance immigration policy unauthorized immigrants coming across the border are criminally charged and separated from their children.

Children should be reunited with the parents, and the administration should adopt immigration reforms that don't treat children like bargaining chips.
