Well, not really, but this is a teachable moment for those who are teachable. I got my information from Erick Erickson, a conservative talk show host with a powerful dislike for President Trump. He’s one of the ten or so conservative Never Trumpers left in America.

As usual, we were only given a portion of the story with hyperbole and emotionally provocative images.

What was reported resonated with predetermined biases, and that was enough. To be fair, I’ve seen the exact same reflex with some of my conservative friends during the time of Obama’s presidency.
So, what happened? It is the policy to temporarily separate children from their parents to ensure the children are actually with their parents and not with sex slave traffickers. Once it can be established that the children belong to the parents, they are reunited. Most people who deal with child abuse cases know the importance of interviewing children by themselves.
