After all the news stories and social media outrage over the weekend, you might be asking this question: Did the Trump administration separate nearly 1,500 immigrant children from their parents at the border, and then lose track of them? The NYT’s Amy Harmon provides an answer to that question (and several others): “No. The government did realize last year that it lost track of 1,475 migrant children it had placed with sponsors in the United States, according to testimony before a Senate subcommittee last month. But those children had arrived alone at the Southwest border — without their parents. Most of them are from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, and were fleeing drug cartels, gang violence and domestic abuse, according to government data.” (My follow-up question would be why we’re positioning these kids, who are running for their lives, as an evil force that represents some dire threat to America.)
