US Representative Michael E. Capuano: Despite a court order, Trump's administration officials can't reunite children because it turns out they can’t do what they said

    Capuano: What President Trump Wants Us to Forget
    By now, nearly every American has seen the terrible images of children being torn from their families, heard the sound of children begging immigration officers to call their relatives. Those images and sounds are the truth of what has been happening at our border because of Donald Trump's despicable and immoral immigration policies.
