Trump administration weighs new divorce to family at border

The White House is actively considering plans that could separate parents and children at the US-Mexico border, hoping that the rising number of families would illegally cross the United States, according to various government officials with direct knowledge of the effort.

An option to be considered is that the government holds asylum-seeking families up to 20 days together, leaving parents the choice – remaining in family arrest with their child for months or years as their immigration case progresses, or allowing children to be admitted to a shelter for the government so that other family members or guardians can have custody.
