I cannot come to any other conclusion than that the current administration intentionally scattered the children stolen from their families in a manner that would make reunification difficult or impossible. Which is the very situation we are in now.
Part of my career related to designing and using complex databases for research data. A database to keep track of which child belonged to which parent would be extremely easy to create and use. The only technical part would be a method to identify each child and parent. A simple identification bracelet such as those used in hospitals would work. Indeed, from a video the government shared of these holding facilities, you can see such a bracelet being scanned as each child is given his food tray.
It could not be more self evident that such a system would be needed if you were to separate children from their parents. Since this was not done, it had to be a deliberate decision not to do so.
This entire debacle is sinister. Since when do we allow the government to prevent reporters and congressional representatives from seeing where these children are kept? Since when has the government brought children into cities without notifying the local authorities? Since when has the government lied to airlines about who is being transported? Since when have children been ripped from their parents in the first place, causing all these problems?
This is obviously unacceptable. Those responsible need to be held accountable. Those responsible need to be removed from their positions so they cannot do further damage. We need to speak out. There are too many parallels to taking Jewish people or Japanese Americans to concentration camps while others remained silent. Too many parallels to young African American men either killed or imprisoned here.
