When adults use children to commit crimes or to gain favor and they are captured together, they are separated for the welfare of the child.
Maybe in Mexico or Central or South America they put young children in jail cells with adults, but we don’t do that in the USA.
Child molestation is an acceptable cultural practice in the aforementioned areas in all Spanish-speaking communities (land and island communities). There is a huge sex-slave-trade market worldwide for children.
If they don’t want their children to be arrested, then don’t use them to gain illegal entry to the USA. I haven’t heard of anyone seeking asylum for sexually exploited children from any of these regions. That’s a tell, right there.
How do you stay out of a cage? Don’t go to a foreign country with the intention of breaking the law to get there.
Hey, each time I went to Canada, I had to enter through a check point. If I had entered on foot, with a screaming child in my arms begging to be taken in, the Canadian authorities would have taken me someplace to be detained to sort matters out.
If thousands of us showed up, it would have been mayhem. These people entering have no respect for America, its people or its laws. The ones telling them to go and break the laws of a foreign country knowing that they’ll be detained are the real monsters in their nightmares.
Desperation isn’t this organized. That’s another tell.
