You break it, you fix it, unless you’re Donald Trump.  While the administration’s policy going forward will require families to remain united, this apparently doesn’t apply to the thousands of  migrant children who have already been taken from their parents. From The New York Times:

  • “There will not be a grandfathering of existing cases,” said Kenneth Wolfe, a spokesman for the Administration for Children and Families, a division of the Department of Health and Human Services. Mr. Wolfe said the decision about the children was made by the White House, but he added, “I can tell you definitively that is going to be policy.”
