So until they can build much bigger prisons. How thoughtful.

But what are they doing? Are they just letting people in? Are they giving them hearing dates? What?

“We’re suspending prosecutions of adults who are members of family units until ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) can accelerate resource capability to allow us to maintain custody,” the official said.

I’ll believe it when I see it.

According to Rachel last night they were dispatching JAGS from the US military to border locations to assist with prosecutions

Translation: “for 20 days until the courts force (sic) us to snatch the kids back to the torture centers.”

But that lie will be the only thing the Orange Losers voters will hear.

So - Trump probably insisted on delaying this until today, allowing him to issue a fake-tough partial retreat yesterday and pretend that he wasn’t giving up anything. Then on to a night of cult-love in Duluth.

And today: reality. I wonder what or who really forced the issue here? And what will Trump take on next to compensate for the blow to his pride?

What about those they already have in custody, and their separated children?

The problem for them if they make this retroactive, is that those children either get located and returned quickly to their parents, or they don’t. If they do, they provide horror stories that now go untold because the kids are locked up and even members of Congress can’t get to them. If they can’t be located and returned, that’s another set of even worse horror stories.

They really, really, did not think this through when they started this zero-tolerance policy. They have already committed too many crimes implementing it to back down without fatal damage from the criminality exposed as they back down and try to undo the damage already done. But just what is already public is horrible enough that they can’t go forward.

There’s no amount of cleaning that will wash the stench of this off the administration.

From all we’ve read and heard, they really do not seem to have the paperwork or identification that would make reunions possible. And now they’ve been sending little kids to facilities all over the country. This is a horror story that will go on and on.

The one sure way of ID’ing these kids, I’d say, is to set up something like a DNA bank and look for matches.

So the administration doesn’t really need Congress to make policy changes, then.

In other words, Catch and Release. CATCH AND RELEASE!!!

Perhaps the complicit high tech firms could do the right thing and create websites and apps in order to help bring families back together.

And provide them for free, rather than profiting from their complicity twice…
