FACT CHECK: Did the Trump administration really 'lose' 1475 migrant children?

FACT CHECK: Did the Trump administration really 'lose' 1475 migrant children?

Ivanka's tweet was published on the same day that former Republican Senator Rick Santorum told CNN that while the government doesn't know where the 1,500 children actually are, they're not technically lost. "This is happening right now and the only debate that matters is how we force our government to get these kids back to their families as fast as humanly possible".

Last week, the ACLU released a report detailing hundreds of complaints of sexual abuse threats and other misconduct against children by US border agents and contractors between 2009 and 2014, based on more than 30,000 pages of documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. Demonstrators will demand that the Trump administration stop separating immigrant children from their families - a practice they say creates long-term emotional harm. Villaraigosa, Favreau and some others deleted their tweets when the mistake was pointed out. That means parents would go directly to detention centers, leaving children unaccompanied. Is there another story you'd like us to VERIFY? And those who weren't released were often herded into chain-link-fenced holding cells, where they slept on thin mattresses on concrete floors.

These reports came from the HHS's Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), which reported on attempts to reach unaccompanied alien children (UACs) and their caretakers.

The fact is the pictures were taken in 2014 by journalists who were granted access by the Customs Border Police (CPB) in order to clear up rumors of mistreatment.

-"1500 innocent children ripped from their mothers' arms at our border". Give us your exhausted, your poor, your huddle masses yearning to breathe free - and we will torture them for wanting a better life. In each case, the parents were separated from their children.

The plight of unaccompanied children who cross the border is the latest immigration storm whipped up by the Trump White House, and includes travel restrictions on people from some Muslim nations and the uncertainty facing of DACA recipients - undocumented migrants brought to the USA as kids.

The children in that tally arrived in the USA without their parents, so they were not separated from their families by federal officials. While precise numbers are not available, at least 700 children have been taken away from their parents in this heartless fashion.

To call the children lost, as many have, is misleading. "Just because they cross the border doesn't make them non-human", Castro said. "You've broken USA law".

The department could not verify the whereabouts of 1,475. In some cases, sponsors simply didn't respond to the follow-up phone call, not surprising because many are themselves in the US illegally and reluctant to speak to authorities.

During one recent period, 14% of sponsors didn't respond to the call. Either way, HHS has argued it is not legally responsible for what happens to the children after they leave its custody.

"It's a shame the way the Trump administration is handling these cases now".

"Put pressure on the Democrats to end the terrible law that separates children from there (sic) parents once they cross the Border into the U.S.", Trump tweeted.

The agency from the Department of Health and Human Services also claims that once the sponsor families pick up the immigrant children, they hold no legal responsibility for the children themselves. Under this policy, ICE seeks to refer everyone crossing illegally for criminal prosecution, and all parents who are arrested will be separated from their children.

Last month Attorney General Jeff Session announced a zero tolerance policy for people crossing the border illegally.

But here's the part Trump apologists neglect to mention: The government is keeping immigrant families forcibly separated even after criminal proceedings are over and the parents get released from jail. That's in addition to hundreds more who were estimated to have been removed from their parents since October.

White House officials say they are facing a "border crisis" and bold action is needed, however harsh the measures may seem.
