  • The Trump administration is reportedly considering a new family separation policy for immigrants who cross the US-Mexico border with their children.
  • Instead of forcibly splitting up immigrant families at the border, as authorities did under the “zero tolerance” immigration policy, the parents would face a “binary choice” to be held as a family in detention or have their children released without them.
  • The renewed family separations push is being spearheaded by Trump’s senior policy adviser, Stephen Miller, who reportedly believed that the original “zero tolerance” policy was effective in deterring illegal immigration.

The Trump administration could soon revive its practice of separating immigrant families at the border by offering them a choice between indefinite detention and separation, The Washington Post reported Friday, citing senior administration officials.

The new policy would not exactly replicate the controversial “zero tolerance” immigration policy that caused a public uproar in the springtime, when authorities forcibly split more than 2,500 children from their parents.
