Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh made the ludicrous claim on CNN that migrant parents — who had their kids snatched away and caged by the Trump administration — do not want their children returned:
It’s a regrettable situation, certainly. The fact is it’s not as simple as you make it sound or Joe Biden made it sound on the stage last night to locate the parents who are in other countries. And when they do locate them, it has been DHS’ experience that in many cases the parents do not want the children returned.
POLITICO notes that the Trump administration has failed to find the parents of more than 500 children who were taken from their families after crossing the U.S. border.
