Remember when Trump said:
“They look so innocent. They’re not innocent.”Consider that the policy of this Administration, whether Kirstjen Nielsen considers it a "policy" or not (or can agree on what the meaning of "is" is):
We will separate those who claim to be a parent and child if we cannot determine a familial or custodial relationship exists.So if I'm fleeing violence and death in my own country, and I don't stop on the way out to pick up my kid's birth certificate, I am presumptively a liar to claim my child is, indeed, my child? Yeah, that's really what she means:
For example, if there's no documentation to confirm the claimed relationship between an adult and a child, we do so if the parent is a national security, public or safety risk, including when there are criminal charges at issue and it may not be appropriate to maintain the family in detention together.
“We do not have the luxury of pretending that all individuals coming to this country as a family unit are in fact a family,” she said. “We have to do our job. We will not apologize for doing our job.”
The next level down is that the documents are all fakes, because that's what "those people" do: they buy fake documents and bring fake families to America just to get a chance to stay here and "violently change" our culture.
The Mole People have to dig down to find these people.
