Isn't it just a red herring, really? Let me explain... Yes, those kids are removed from their parents, and it's a horrible thing to do, but when most people wake up tomorrow, their life will be the same, they'll be outraged, sure, but nothing much will change for them personally, if they're not part of those mexican families...
Meanwhile... since this gets so much attention in the news, you're not hearing about reductions in healthcare or tax raises for low income groups just to benefit Trump's friends. You know, the boring stuff that IRS will tell you about when it's that time of year, and when you ask why you didn't I hear about this, it's because you were too busy being rightfully outraged about "Tender Care" facilities.
Isn't it just a diversion of the attention of the public? A despicable one, for sure, but just that, in fact exactly that.

John Oliver, I have to ask, aren’t these people criminals? Don’t we imprison criminals and doesn’t that involve separating them from their parents?
Isn’t it also the case that democrats objected to keeping children in incarceration with their criminal parents as that would be a human rights infringement?
I agree, turning to the bible to defend this is ridiculous but what else can be done under these circumstances? If they can’t be incarcerated with their parents and they can’t be separated from them then what is left? Do we release criminals so that their children don’t have to be apart from them?

Any theologian will tell you, that to interpret the Bible you must know where and how the culture was at the moment of the quote. At the time of the quote, nero was in office of government (after all the book is called Romans!). Arguably the worst, or certainly one of the worst leaders in history.

How to secure the us-mexico border, to prevent millions from entering in .. to seek a place on American Idol... chase the dream.. ? Or do you simply give anybody who says he has no identity papers - citizenship, and documentation to support that claim? Mark of the diablo - barcode? .... do you see them rounding up undocumented "whites" to ship them back to mexico? No wonder the jews desire a homeland they can run to - and how much better if they can get gentiles to fight their wars? ... "maam, if a guy does not claim you.."
A homeless guy once said to me, "It is easy to unplug from the Grid. All you have to do is throw away all your id papers. But it is next to impossible to plug back in, to prove that you were ever born. Nobody helps me. I need to raise twenty dollars every day, so I can rent a room at the Salvation Army - they are a business." My point is, if the government is willing to give John Doe, amnesiac victim, identity papers, and help him plug back into the grid, then maybe give everybody who cannot prove citizenship, citizenship. But do collect dna, fingerprints, from criminals, in case they decide to start over... look at me, born again!
But now - lose your id papers, and you will be treated as a slave, migrant worker, no healthcare or retirement costs to consider. Be productive, or be dead. That seems to be the new economy. And Trump is simply another false messiah, with special reserve seating, to watch the show.

Just want to point out that Bible is a 2000 years old text, and at the time there was no printer. If you copy the whole Bible by hand you will be making some mistakes. In the tens of thousands of times of transcribing, mistakes accumulate, let alone translation inaccuracies and purposeful editing. So the Bible you read now is nothing like what it was like 2000 years ago. If you take it word by word, you are considering a bunch of previous people's copying mistakes holy.

1:38 .. he was not speaking of cesar, but of an invisible government... the minister of wrath is an angel, and he does bare a sword. ...also, Hitler, and the shoah comes to mind... God does not admonish the bastards, and so they go on doing that which is evil, and not according to his will. .. I guess when Captain America is going around blowing up hydra agents, that evil-doing, that killing, is for good? ... king OF kings does not mean king of all kings.... one OF (from, or belonging to) many... the king of babylon is a king of kings.... Jesus Christ is a king of kings.... Solomon, and David, that's two kings... Hitler, Zuckerberg, and Col.Sanders - that's three kings.... in what kingdom do you rule?.. babylon? Or Israel? Rabbi Telushkin - well, who can be as Solomon was? For in Solomon's reign, he made silver to be as stones... people left the silver alone upon the ground.

Migrant Worker today, illegal alien tomorrow, is legalized slavery. After decades of using them, now to avoid issues of paying them healthcare and retirement benefits, they call them illegals, and desire to ship them back. May the wrath of the lamb fall upon them who say slavery is of God rather than of man. Likewise, child abuse and "waterboarding" is of man and not of God. "I baptize thee with hydrogen dioxide.." - what a con.. Have a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year. Did Trump ever put out a Nativity Scene at Trump Plaza? He was very angry at Starbucks' red-green cups. The only reason john baptized with water was to make Him manifest to Israel : see, john 1:31, kjv.

If you wish for a fool like Sessions to even notice you then fire some bullets at him or blow up a muthafuckin car. Your voices are easily tuned out so don’t think that yelling or bitching will work. Get violent or just give up and go on with your lives. Stop wasting all this time without action...and yes i hate you all. *(substitute the words of bullets, blow up, and violent with whatever you have that is better. The point is fuckin do something and not say another muthafuckin word cause its not working. The proof is my statement right here, it will be ignored just like yours)

If the Trump administration is so concerned with what the says, i wonder if they have read Matthew 19.
Matthew 19 21-24
_Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”_
_When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth._
_Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”_

It is biblical to enforce the law - let's start with the "thou salt not commit adultery. Or how about " thou shalt not bear false witness. Or the one about not coveting thy neighbor's wife. Or even the bigly one - thou shalt not commit a felony by lying on your SF86 security clearance application - twice.
I seem to recall there's a bit about loving thy neighbor as thy self - is that just an optional extra?

This exact law was held under the Bush and Obama administrations, and it's not even bad. When they come in ILLEALLY, the parent/s have to take time for their crime. And their kid/s are kept at the centers(basically summer camps), and a lot of times the parent/s abandon their kids. Just another lie about the logistics, lie that Obama and Bush didn't do it, just to push their terrible agenda Trump is evil! Don't go to Leftie late night show hosts for news kids!

So Sessions claims the Bible justifies this. This is the same Bible which explains that Jesus was conceived and born to an unmarried teenage mother, spent the early years of his life as a refugee escaping death and persecution, grew up to lead a group of men around Palestine preaching a doctorine of equality, love and acceptance towards all, including women, the sick and disabled, pretty much told the government to go fuck themselves whilst flipping tables in the Temple and eventually getting arrested and executed for treason.
Let's be honest, if Jesus was around today, Sessions is one of those people who he would be chasing with a whip for deliberately abusing and twisting the teachings of God for his own gain.

Wow, no one actually pays attention to law. Well, John Oliver, here's the law: Specifically, the ninth circuit court of appeals says YOU CAN'T KEEP KIDS WITH THE PARENTS IN PRISON FOR 20 DAYS. It's enforcement to detain immigrants who cross the border illegally, and you can't keep the kids with the parents in prison (which is inhumane), so THEY HAVE TO BE SEPARATED. There are only then four options: Don't enforce the law and not detain immigrants and thus open borders, illegally break the law with an executive order, have Congress change the law, or enforce the law as it is. I prefer option 3, idiots prefer options 1 and 2 (as those options are unrealistic and unconstitutional), and we are forced to go to option 4 since Congress won't change the law.

The law is that if you cross the border illegally and you are arrested, your children can’t stay with you. 2008 ruling by the 9th circuit court of appeals. Just like if you were driving drunk and get pulled over, you get arrested, the kids don’t go with you.
You don’t knowingly break the law and get off scot-free because you have kids with you. The Left doesn’t want the kids arrested and they don’t want the kids separated from their parents... so what’s left? Just let them go? That’s not what’s supposed to happen when you break laws like that.

Okay, I do want to point out one thing. Please don't use the picture that was used up until 0:04. This girl wasn't actually separated from her mother because of these laws, and isn't an apt image to represent family separation (a terrible and cruel thing). I just know that people who are pro-sessions's actions attack the use of the image, and use it to say how liberals are overblowing the issue or distributing fake news. So while I love the video, the image just contributes to fake news (and we do not want to give this administration more evidence of fake news by liberals, it makes their heads big) and just pokes holes in your argument. Just making sure the factual evidence is out there, thanks!
