OK OK OK...all partisanship hate and arguing a side. I'm very saddened for the comments already on this board. Goes to show this country has no hope.
This report makes a claim that it never substantiates. The report says ""How many more children were separated is unknown, by us and the HHS."" So they make a claim that they can't even provide proof of. Then they say:
"The report also found that the Trump administration repeatedly changed its estimate of the number of children in its care, and who had been separated for their families while trying to enter the US.
In June 2018, for instance, the US government said that there were 2,053 separated children in HHS custody. By October, there were 2,668 -- a sharp increase."
So, and this is just freaking hilarious that other people fell for this crap reporting, the only conclusion that can be inferred is that, over time, the numbers changed. Now, I know some critical thinking is harder to do at times than others based on the source content. But this is just 2nd grade logic here. The number of immigrants at the border changes every single day. The numbers change daily, hell, probably even hourly. So OF COURSE the numbers are going to be different over time. Is this is how bad reader logic has become? The article never states that the numbers differ from what has already been reported. It does state:
"While most of those children were reportedly reunified, the new inspector general report finds that "thousands" of children had been taken into HHS care before the order and it is unclear how many of those thousands were then reunified."
But it never states in any context that the number of children taken is any higher or lower than what was reported. It just says thousands were taken in 2018.
What the article IS saying is that the number of kids reunified is not 100%, which isn't surprising at all. So the ridiculous headline is just more partisan hate throwing with no backing whatsoever.
