Nick Miroff and Paul Sonne, reporting for The Washington Post this week:

“The Trump administration is making preparations to hold immigrant children on military bases, according to Defense Department communications, the latest sign the government is moving forward with plans to split up families who cross the border illegally.

According to an email notification sent to Pentagon staffers, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will make site visits at four military installations in Texas and Arkansas during the next two weeks to evaluate their suitability to shelter children.

The bases would be used for minors under 18 who arrive at the border without an adult relative or after the government has separated them from their parents. HHS is the government agency responsible for providing minors with foster care until another adult relative can assume custody.”

So, in other words, it’s some kind of camp, where they can keep kids in concentration of sorts, right?

Under family separation rules, parents go to immigrant jails, children to foster care.
