    If a US citizen breaks the law and is placed in jail/detention they are de facto separated from their children. Yes it can be traumatic to the children.

    I think the thing was perhaps ill conceived...but there is so much demonization and so little information. Where were the kids "placed"? I thought it was mostly with relatives. If so, why is it so hard to "find" them and reunite them.

    So many dog whistles from both sides...is this just one from the left?

    No blame for the organizers of these stupid caravans? Who take it upon themselves to put these children in harm's way traveling hundreds to thousands of miles.

    Are they really mixing in drug and human trafficking to a large degree or are those mostly right wing dog whistles?

    I dunno...but much of the responsibility for this farce rests upon the organizers, the coyotes, and the parents themselves...I think we should be working to try to reunite these families (those that truly wish to be reunited) back in their home countries...but settlements...nah...you decided to do this illegal act on your own. You broke our laws. You endangered your own children.

    Again, I don't know but suspect that a lot of children came across without their parents...and also suspect that a lot of parents want their children to stay in the US for a better life and aren't actively seeking the reunification.

    I have so many unanswered questions about all of this...and how do you humanely stop a 60,000 person "caravan" that has already overwhelmed a sizable police presence in Mexico by truly becoming a mob.

    Everything Stu said, ditto.
    As gip said... take it court.
    I know I can't sue the Feds and have a chance at winning.

    Another point to be made is that as one old attorney once told me, "for $50 any asshole can file a lawsuit" the only difference with these suits is that today it's $350. Anyone see a pattern here? The Obama administration settles cases brought by black farmers against the US for millions, the Obama administration sends millions to Iran because Iran claimed that monies were wrongfully withheld, the Biden administration pays 88 million in suit brought our of the Roof shooting in Charleston, Biden administration pays Andy McCabe over half a million and his full pension and benefits to "settle" his suit. (Compare McCabe to Mike Flynn who both were "not candid" with the FBI.) And now the suit by illegals....nice to see that the Trial Lawyers who always contribute heavily to Democratic presidential campaigns gets paid back by US taxpayers.

    This week's Biden outrage is where he is spending Thanksgiving.

    Give me a break what President in our lifetimes doesn't go somewhere high end. They don't go to the Salvation Army soup kitchen.
    Trump went to Mar-a-Largo, a beautiful estate in Palm Beach.

    Obama went to his rich friends or somewhere cool, so did Clinton and Bush.

    My point is that if we are down to criticizing Presidents for where they celebrate holidays.. It's nuts

    I'm pretty sure Bush just went home to his ranch in Texas. Likewise Trump went to his own place. Obama never went to Chicago, Clinton never went to Little Rock and Joe ain't going home to Delaware to spend time with his family....that's for Republicans. The Dems would rather mooch off some billionaire.
    That being said, I agree that that's petty compared to what they're doing to the country. They're now blaming "middle men" in the gas supply chain. I guess no one bought the OPEC crap. The fact is, Biden stopped drilling on federal lands which reduced our domestic production to the point that we need to import oil which increased the price. That prick blames everyone but the real culprit, him.
    The senseless symbolism of this administration is incredible. He screws up our withdrawal from Afghanistan just so it could be done by Sept. 11. He closes down the Keystone pipeline and ends domestic drilling to undo what Trump did and appease the climate nuts. He chooses a running mate and appoints a cabinet not on ability but on racial and gender grounds. And then there's the border.
    Do I give a flying leap as to where he's spending Thanksgiving? No. I just hope he never comes back.
