They are still trying to say that there was no family separation policy? This is crazy. Like do we really think they are that stupid? Trump literally said they were using it as a deterrent!

Always nice when you see on camera when someone is made to realize and acknowledge what a piece of shit they are. See it all over his face.

I can't believe they're still trying to say that there was no policy of family separation, who do they think could believe that after months and months of reporting on it?

It's branding baby, it's called zero tolerance and family separation was just an add-on feature

“Your attorneys are prosecuting them, and your Department was not tracking parents who were separated from their children?" Rep. Pramila Jayapal asks Whitaker.

"Do you know what kind of damage has been done to children and families...Do you understand the magnitude of that?"




emptywheel @emptywheel

Jayapal: ARe you saying that CBP and ICE lied to GAO and they were given advanced notice?

BDTS: WE had a public event.

Jayapal: Prior to public event, they got no notice. Did USAs track when prosecuting parents from children?


emptywheel @emptywheel

BDTS: I don't believe we were tracking that.

Jayapal: When parents sentenced they are in DOJ custody, correct?

BDTS: Correct.

[BDTS drinks water, now sitting impassive]

Jayapal: DO you understand magnitude of that?
