    Hark! Is that the fap-fap-fap sound of principled Christian Conservatism I hear yonder?

    That's your response to CBP in Dallas treating a mother like a child smuggler, and telling her to change her name?
    Sure, gov't bureaucracies 'tend to have problems', but this looks like an example of a gov't employee following Trump policy.

    I wouldn't treat a dog like that let alone another person. The only answer I can think of is they've become so callous they no longer view these people as people. Instead something less than animals.

    Well yeah I guess that's another way to describe kids that aren't from Idaho or Texas.

    Obviously brown "children" are liars or something.

    Well, some of them will be, yeah. Just like some of the ICE people and the administration will be. I think the Trump administration's policy is fucked up and they are cold and callous about the conditions and the situations people are fleeing from but let's not pretend that they have a monopoly on mendacity in the PR over immigration, asylum, etc.
    Last night as I lay in bed, looking up at the stars, I thought, “Where the hell is my ceiling?"

    They don't need to have a monopoly on mendacity. There's enough evidence now to make claims of extremely poor conditions and mistreatment of children quite credible. This policy should be halted immediately and indefinitely. Even those who think it's justifiable to separate children from their parents through force or deception should understand that this sort of mistreatment is wrong.
