When is a child worth less than a suitcase? When the child in question is an immigrant at the U.S. border, and the Trump administration exercises its “zero tolerance” policy.

In a ruling last summer, U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw summed up the administration’s utterly immoral and cavalier attitude toward immigrant children that it had separated from their parents: “The unfortunate reality is that under the present system, migrant children are not accounted for with the same efficiency and accuracy as property.”

The administration didn’t even attempt to keep track of many of the children being torn from their mothers’ arms as part of its inhumane and unnecessary family separation policy.
