Family<em></em></a>

Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, who has done absolutely nothing to stop the Trump administration from ripping immigrant families apart, has just posted a self-aggrandizing video of himself on Twitter discussing what a great father he is.

“I, I think what happened to me when I became a father is it changed my ambitions,” Ryan said in an early Father’s Day message. “…Once I had kids,...

Horrific stories of separated immigrant children held in detention centers proliferate almost daily and they are unlikely to end anytime soon. Donald Trump may have walked back his family separation policy, but his new plan is to detain both parents and children together. As the country is consumed with debates about whether it’s okay to yell at White House officials in public, the Washington...

Televangelist, evangelical pastor, and spiritual adviser to Donald Trump Paula White would like the world to know that not only are the undocumented children imprisoned in federal detention facilities actually doing quite well for themselves, but Jesus Christ himself probably would have wanted them locked up.

In an interview with the Christian Broadcast Network this week, White—who serves as a...

As fury grows over the Trump administration’s family separation policy, Attorney General Jeff Sessions—one of the main architects of the policy—appeared on Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show on Monday night to defend the White House. There, he insisted to his decision to rip apart families and jail children is totally, completely, wildly different from Nazi Germany’s policy of, well, doing the...

U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington State visited a federal detention center in her state this weekend and said the mothers she met “could not stop crying.”

“The vast majority of the mothers have not spoken with their children in weeks and they have no idea where they are. Most have been held in detention for more than two weeks and many for over a month,” Jayapal said in a statement...

The list of places where U.S. immigration officials have been detaining immigrants across the country is more varied, and more surprising, than many people might have guessed.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials last year jailed an average of 38,000 immigrants per day. But only about 11% of detainees were detained in facilities owned and operated by ICE. Most immigrants are detained...

A 15 year-old boy held at a center for migrant children which seems a lot like jail apparently just walked out, and the nonprofit accountable for his well-being won’t answer a question about exactly how many times this has happened.

The New York Times reports that the teenager walked out of the Casa Padre holding center in Brownsville, TX around 3 p.m. on Saturday, after staff members tried to...

“Nobody is going to separate us again.”

This emotional reunion between a mother and her son is heart-wrenching—not only because of the pain that these two have experienced, but also because of the knowledge that there are still thousands of families ripped apart by Donald Trump’s family separation policy who need to be brought together again.

I’m sorry that Corey Lewandowski is a guy that I have to remind you about today, because the former campaign manager for Donald Trump took far right callousness to the lowest of the low in an exchange on (where else) Fox News on Tuesday night.

On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported on the Mexican government’s fury over the Trump administration’s policy of splitting children up from...

America in 2018 is obviously not Nazi Germany, but one can be forgiven for seeing far too many echoes when it comes to our current child detention and family separation crisis. I am thinking especially of three things.

The first is the voice of a man identified as a Border Patrol agent in audio from an immigrant detention center released by ProPublica on Monday. As children scream and cry for...
