Over 900 migrant children taken from parents by Trump admin last year


Nearly 1,000 migrant children have been separated from their families at the US-Mexico border in the last year despite a judge’s order for President Donald Trump’s administration to stop the practice, a top rights group said Tuesday.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said in a court filing in San Diego that the administration was accusing parents of minor criminal activity — including traffic violations — and neglect to continue separating children at the border.

One example involved a father whose one-year-old daughter was taken from him because he failed to change her diaper.
