US Considers Separating Kids And Adults At The Mexico Border
The Trump administration is reportedly considering new measures to deter people from crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.
Right now, people caught crossing the border illegally with children are typically released into the U.S. while they wait for their cases to be resolved. That system is nicknamed "catch and release," and President Donald Trump has said he would get rid of it.
Under the new proposal, adults would be kept in detention while they appeal for asylum. Their children would be taken into protective custody until they can be placed with a state guardian or U.S. relative.
The Trump administration has vowed to overhaul the U.S. immigration system, but if this proposal passes, it would seem to go against promises made on the campaign trail.
"We’re gonna keep the families together; we have to keep the families together," Trump said on NBC’s "Meet the Press."
Officials haven’t decided on the proposal.
