    I hope no so-called conservative in America who refuses to speak up about this ever dares speak about the importance of family or family values ever again.

    If you're not prepared to oppose tearing apart families like this you forfeit the right to say you care about families.

    Or the "pro-life" people who stop caring about life the second after birth.
    Hope is the denial of reality

    I predict the US and the world in general will continue to take these people and the other Trump-enablers seriously once Trump is gone. It will be all water under the bridge, forgive and forget, no reason to hold a grudge etc. Everything that gave rise to Trumpism and allowed it to take over US conservatism will continue to thrive after Trump, and any criticism of these underlying factors will be dismissed as hyperbole and hysteria.

    They were never prolife to begin with. Probirth at best. There is no low these people will not sink to.

    Authorities managed to identify Pedro’s aunt, to whose custody he was released in South Florida. But after the U.S. government filed removal paperwork against him, the boy was expected—at the age of eight—to represent himself in immigration court. (Immigrant children have no legal right to public counsel.) Faced with the boy’s imminent deportation, Pedro’s aunt sought help from Americans for Immigrant Justice. For months, Pedro’s legal team, along with his aunt, searched without success for his father. Had he been deported? Was he in detention? Had some harm befallen him? After all these months, no one knows.
