More Children Separated At The Border Than Previously Known

The public learned two years ago that the Department of Homeland Security separated thousands of children from their parents at the southern border. The influx of people (refugees) from Central American countries led to a 'zero tolerance' policy drafted by the administration. The new policy demanded families crossing the border separate; parents going to a prison setting and children going to detention centers.

Some falsely claim Obama also practiced family separation at the border, which is false. With Obama, unaccompanied minors arrived at the border & he placed them with other children. But, Obama did not separate families who came to the southern border. 

The Trump administration, as a deterrent, separated families, which led to mass confusion and poor documentation led to parents not knowing the whereabouts of their children. Even today parent-child relocation is a nightmare.

Apparently, the administration separated more children than previously known. Poor record keeping made clear that additional children were taken from their parents.
