A Trump administration ‘myth vs fact’ sheet on its family separation policy deliberately avoids the most important point about the scandal

  • The Trump administration is under fire for its policy of separating children from their parents at the US-Mexico border.
  • As a result, the Department of Homeland Security has published a supposed fact check of its family separation policy.
  • It details “myths” about the policy, and blames the media and congressmen for negative stories about it.
  • But it leaves out the main reason it is separating families: The Justice Department’s new hardline zero-tolerance policy on border immigration.

The Department of Homeland Security published a “Myth vs. Fact” document in an attempt to cool the political firestorm around its family separation policy — but it deliberately avoided mentioning its new zero-tolerance policy that is behind the scandal.

The supposed fact check, published on the DHS website on Monday, attempts to debunk 13 “myths” about ongoing family separations at the US border. Its efforts to do so are dubious, however.
