20,000 children

From The New York Times:

The Department of Health and Human Services on Thursday asked the Pentagon to make preparations to house as many as 20,000 unaccompanied migrant children on American military bases, a United States official said.
“Zero-tolerance” policies never work well. These preparations bode a humanitarian nightmare — something like a junior version of Guantanamo Bay.


June 22: For clarity: these children will be “unaccompanied” because they will have been separated from their parents.

You would think just the optics alone of the idea of holding children in military-run internment camps would give any normal person reason to pause — but then the Present Occupant is not a normal person, is he?

No, and the cracks are really showing. I have to hope that at least some of his supporters will be rethinking.
