Trump de­cided to sep­a­rate fam­i­lies with­out a plan

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - - Voices & Opinion -

The Trump Ad­min­is­tra­tion’s de­ci­sion to sep­a­rate fam­i­lies who made il­le­gal bor­der cross­ings has been dis­as­trous. Put aside your opin­ion about treat­ing il­le­gal en­try as a crim­i­nal act in­stead of a civil vi­o­la­tion. Pres­i­dent Trump and At­tor­ney Gen­eral Jeff Ses­sions made a de­ci­sion to start sep­a­rat­ing fam­i­lies. They put the pol­icy in place, gave the or­ders and is­sued the di­rec­tives. They sep­a­rated thou­sands of chil­dren from the adults in their lives. And when they did so, they had no plan, no sys­tem, no method for re­unit­ing these fam­i­lies.

Trump has brought shame on this great coun­try. David Wood, Davie
