Hey Look, Child Separations at the Border Are Okay Again!
The separation of children at the border has been going on for years. Heck, it happened throughout Obama’s presidency, and no one cared. The 2008 law dictating the separation of adults and children at the border was designed to prevent sex trafficking of minors, but that was suddenly a bad thing once Trump took office.
And guess what? It also stopped being a bad thing once Joe Biden took office.
According to a report from the New York Times, Ukrainian children are being “separated from relatives, friends or older siblings with whom they have traveled to the southern border.”
Yet there’s no outrage from Democrats about how evil the Biden administration is. Weird, right?

Ukrainian Children Are Being Separated From Caregivers at U.S. Border:
After Iryna Merezhko persuaded her sister in Ukraine that her young nephew should join her in Los Angeles to wait out the war, she traveled halfway around the globe to pick him up.
“I told him it would be a California vacation,” she recalled. “We would go to Disneyland, Universal Studios, the beach.”
The boy, Ivan Yereshov, 14, made it with her to Tijuana, Mexico, early this month, joining thousands of Ukrainians waiting at the border for permission to enter the United States.
To be on the safe side, Merezhko carried a notarized power of attorney attesting that Ivan had been handed over into his aunt’s care. But an officer informed them that Ivan could not enter with his aunt — because she was not his parent.
“They told us we would be separated for one or two days,” recalled Merezhko, who said that she embraced Ivan as his initial enthusiasm dissolved into dismay.
Ten days went by before she would learn his whereabouts. --->READ MORE HERE
