John Oliver Exposes Trump's Lies About His Border Child Separation Policy
HBOIt's been a very long week. Can you believe that President Trump's historic (and largely fruitless) summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was on Tuesday? Neither can I.

On Sunday's edition of Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver directed much of his ire toward the Trump administration's unspeakably cruel policy of separating children from their families at the border and housing them in prison-like facilities. During a six-week period since the president and his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, instituted their "zero tolerance" illegal immigration policy, the Trump administration has separated 1,995 children from their parents.

"That's right: thousands of children have been forcibly taken from their parents after a policy shift was put into action last month by U.S. Attorney General—and least fun thing to find in a Kinder egg—Jeff Sessions," said Oliver. "Sessions basically started a policy of incarcerating people who crossed the border illegally knowing full well that that incarceration would mean they were separated from their children—many of whom are less than 10 years old with no clear plan as to when they might be reunited."

The Trump Administration Has No Idea Whether It Backs Family Separation At the Border Or Not
Jose Luis GonzalezThe United States has no policy of separating migrant families at the border. There is such a policy, but it's all the Democrats' fault. The policy was a "simple decision," but one "nobody likes." The policy is good, legal, and Jesus would approve.

The Trump administration, confronted with increasing public criticism over its immensely unpopular policy of separating migrant children from their families when they cross the U.S. border, has responded to the crisis by taking taking wildly different positions on both the policy itself and the motivation behind it.

Ranging from full-throated endorsement of the decision to separate minor children from their asylum-seeking parents to flat insistence that the decision doesn't exist, "period," the public-relations pileup is just a facet of the botched rollout of a policy that separated nearly 2,000 children from their families in its first six weeks.
