    ICE forcing separated parents to accept deportation to see their kids

    WASHINGTON — After a court order to reunite more than 2,000 migrant children who were separated from their parents in May and June, the Trump administration has instructed immigration agents to give those parents two options: leave the country with your kids — or leave the country without them, according to a copy of a government form obtained by NBC News.

    The new instructions to agents do not allow parents who were separated from their children under President Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" policy to reunite with their children while they await a decision on asylum, a protection sought by thousands of migrant families fleeing violence in Central America.

    Advocates say that even migrants who have already passed their initial asylum screenings are being presented with the form. "We are seeing cases where people who have passed credible fear interviews and have pending asylum claims are being given this form," said Lee Gelernt, a lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union who is leading a class action lawsuit for family reunification.

    Hobson Choice?

    A Hobson's choice is a free choice in which only one thing is offered. Because a person may refuse to accept what is offered, the two options are taking it or taking nothing. In other words, one may "take it or leave it". The phrase is said to have originated with Thomas Hobson (1544–1631), a livery stable owner in Cambridge, England, who offered customers the choice of either taking the horse in his stall nearest to the door or taking none at all.​

    They shouldn't need to wait for the decision. Their countries being shitholes is not a reason to grant them a refuge. The fact that they are trying to use their kids to that end just makes it worse.

    The answer to them is the same as for many in the US. Just #WalkAway...

    This is how things should be. This administration, the American people do not place these families in jeopardy. The people responsible for placing their children, and their families in this bad position are the parents who make the decision to drag them up here and expect the American public to be stupid and gullible. The parents have the choice, take the kids and leave, or abandon the children and leave.

    Zero tolerance: If anyone crosses this border illegally, they will be incarcerated. If they have children with them, those children will be taken away from them.
