Psst! Let's pretend that these kids are not alone and their parents arrested, AT WORK, being productive citizens, doing work that Americans won't do.

Let's pretend that there are no scared and crying children living in God knows where tonight.

False. Not citizens, and how do you know they're all productive? They're using those kids for a welfare check or some form of government assistance.

There are hundreds of thousands of American children who I'm sure get distraught when their parents are separated from them when they get arrested.

I'm sorry for these kids, I am, but this is so freaking ridiculous.

The parents put them in this situation, simple as that.

This is a country of laws, not a dumping ground for everyone else's problems!!!
Out of the number of people detained, do we know on the day of their detention that they are all here illegally. Nope. We don't. Just like if a man is arrested for bank robbery, the media may say "Man arrested fr suspicious of bank robbery" because he may not be the actual bank robber.

Meanwhile, the government themselves will tell you that the kids and parents will be separated.

I know I am about to accused of being a leftie, Trump hating, America loathing slacker, but you folks damn the media way too often. This headline is nothing to get excited about

Also, your headline is actually more wrong than you might realize. "ICE detains people here illegally" in your headline describes the action ICE is taking, not the possible immigration situation of the people they are detaining. If NBC had used that as a headline, right wingers would have erupted... and probably should have in that case

I support deporting illegals, but taking illegal parents away in the middle of the day and leaving their children locked out of the house, with nowhere to go, and no support services is cruel.

So proud of ICE and POTUS Trump.

Round the criminals up, deport those here illegally, as one family flying home together.

Seems they arrested some they shouldn't have that they had to release. WTH? I guess the MO is to arrest now and ask questions later. What a farce.
