Is the US really "ripping" children away from their parents, or is the US sheltering the children while their parents are being processed?

for breaking the law? The media likes to use the word ripping, it sounds much more horrible than sheltering.

    They are feeding, sheltering, educating and taking care of medical concerns while their parents are being charged with a felony. If parents cared about their kids they would not put them in this position. AND THEY ARE NOT IN CONCENTRATION CAMPS.. shame on the idiot liberals for spreading that lie!!

    Sheltering doesn't involve putting children in concentration camps.

    To say that the children are being "ripped" away from their parents - and their siblings of the opposite sex - is NOT an exaggeration. That IS what is happening and a person can sugarcoat it however they want. It doesn't change the fact that those children are being removed from their parent's custody - and NOT because those parents are neglectful or abusive.

    I don't care what you call it - it is inhumane and Republicans should be ashamed of themselves. They lord it over everyone about how "Christian" they are and yet they don't behave like Christians. God is weeping.

    Good point. When Trump reversed the Obama policy of treating illegal migrants as having committed misdemeanors and made it a felony, existing laws dictate that children of the expected felons must be sheltered while the new felon parents await trial.

    And that's where the kids are now...in shelters. Because their parents are now felons awaiting trial under the Trump policy as executed by Sessions.

      Presidents do not decide what is a felony or a misdemeanor., and the people in currently in detention are not charged with a felony.

    Some of the media is very biased and often selects headlines and words to bait potential viewers to watch their show / buy their newspaper or periodical. If the children are throwing a fit and are being physically removed away from their parents, then I could understand the more sensational word of 'ripping.' If the separation process is being handled with minimal trauma, then something like 'sheltering' would be appropriate. The reality of the situation is that the adult illegal immigrants need to be processed, the illegals are responsible for putting the kids in that situation, the process should be done in a way to minimize any trauma to the kids, but it can be a tough situation any way. If you average criminal in the US did a bad act while they had their kid(s) with them, citizen or not, the police would need to separate the adults from the kids while the perpetrators were processed - so I do not see the difference in this situation.

    President Trump is doing exactly what he was elected to do. Illegal is illegal. Pack them up and ship them out!
