If you Google Separated immigrant families you will find a ton of posts condemning the current policy of the US finding a temporary place for the children to live while their parents are detained after sneaking across the border together.
In most or all of them Trump is condemned.
The origin of this policy comes from The Flores Settlement(1997).
The Flores Settlement Agreement (Flores) imposed several obligations on the immigration authorities, which fall into three broad categories:
1. The government is required to release children from immigration detention without unnecessary delay to, in order of preference, parents, other adult relatives, or licensed programs willing to accept custody.
2. If a suitable placement is not immediately available, the government is obligated to place children in the least restrictive setting appropriate to their age and any special needs.
3. The government must implement standards relating to the care and treatment of children in immigration detention.

So it was liberal judges who decreed that the children couldnt stay with their detained parents.
Enter Dana Sabraw, a federal district court judge in California who ruled yesterday:
For Plaintiffs, the government actors responsible for the care and custody of migrant children have, in fact, become their persecutors. These allegations sufficiently describe government conduct that arbitrarily tears at the sacred bond between parent and child, and is emblematic of the exercise of power without any reasonable justification in the service of an otherwise legitimate governmental objective[.] Such conduct, if true, as it is assumed to be on the present motion, is brutal, offensive, and fails to comport with traditional notions of fair play and decency. At a minimum, the facts alleged are sufficient to show the government conduct at issue shocks the conscience and violates Plaintiffs constitutional right to family integrity. Accordingly, Defendants motion to dismiss Plaintiffs due process claim is denied.

He didn't rule on the case but just that it could go forward.
What happen to an American kid(s) whose parent(s) are put in Jail? Duh!
Nice find sick...
“So it was liberal judges who decreed that the children couldnt stay with their detained parents.”
I read that before and heard Trump and Republicans allude to it not very well and could see that many here should know why this is happening.
So Obama just let the parents go free here when they brought kids over.
Ironic since Dems call the Dreamer kids victims but you can see they want the adults who bring them here rewarded.
Were they somehow regurgitated?
You're right - it's an incentive.
