The answer to Alice Philippi’s question (why not issue wristbands at the border) is simple.

Homeland Security, ICE and the Trump justice department had no interest in identifying the children they kidnapped because they had no intention of reuniting them with their parents. Anyone listening to right-wing radio or watching Fox News would know those adults weren’t their parents anyway. Their morally depraved mothers were sending their children with drug dealing, criminal smugglers. And now those lucky babies and children are relaxing in summer camps and luxurious foster care, and the criminals are in prison, where they belong.
