The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services supervises the migrant children who have been taken from parents. When did they start making preparations for this policy?
It’s inconceivable that facilities and personnel are in place today without sufficient preparation time. This suggests that the Trump administration has been planning for awhile to implement this policy.
Surprisingly, no one leaked any advanced information to the press. No whistle blower came along to let the public know that a cruel policy was in the offing. It remains possible that people considered that separating children from their parents was only a contingency, that Mr. Trump would never go so far. Do I believe in contingencies? No.
It seems that the President has his house in order (finally). As a businessman, his acumen is acute. He has been running the executive branch firmly and surely. What has seemed to be a whim on his part may have been part of a plan to catch us off guard. He has been building a new Trump enterprise slowly but surely.
This truly frightens me.
