It wasn't admin. policy to separate children from their parents.

Trump's policy changed that, holding for prosecution even first time crossers and asylum seekers who didn't use the approved crossing, which meant they had to separate charged parents from children. The policy was intentional, meant to scare off potential border crossers.
You mean potential illegal border crossers.
I don't believe for a minute you don't understand this already.
I dont believe for a minute that you dont understand that Trump is enforcing the law.
