If you don’t know ICE is Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Trump administration is full of conflicts. His policies, theories and plan of action have been the center of criticism since the day he took over! Infact, Trump is on the top when talked about open display of criticism and disrespect. But the recent controversy related to USA ICE, losing track of 1500 children, has everyone scared to death. Furthermore, it has put a question to security of all, living in the US.
Trump’s administration has been making stricter rules for immigration and illegal residents in USA since day one.
Families crossing the border, illegally, have to face serious penalties. Moreover, Trump’s government is not even sparing the children. The result of these strict policies lead to arrest of parents and all those children coming along are brought under government’s care. Moreover, the Trump administration is being harsh in implementing the policies. They are separating children as young as 12 months from their parents!
Whats Donald Trump’s Take on this?
Put pressure on the Democrats to end the horrible law that separates children from there parents once they cross the Border into the U.S. Catch and Release, Lottery and Chain must also go with it and we MUST continue building the WALL! DEMOCRATS ARE PROTECTING MS-13 THUGS.

Nearly 1500 Children Lost – Yes, LOST!
A senior official from the Department of Health and Human Services confirmed that nearly 1,500 children have no record at all! Furthermore, Steven Wagner, the acting assistant secretary for the HHS Administration for Children and families, told the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) has attempted to contact 7,635 unaccompanied children. Out of which ORR was unable to determine with certainty the whereabouts of 1,475 children.
How did it happen?
The 1500 children, reported missing are mostly from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras area. Furthermore, they were reportedly running from abuses and drug cartels.
The government took them under care and then lost them.
According to procedure, the children which are taken under the government’s protection were sent to live with relatives. But somewhere in this process, there are so many loop holes which resulted in this chaos. As a result, there are approximately 1500 children, 20% of the children reported, missing under government’s protection.
Eric Hargan, the Deputy Secretary of Health and Human Services gave a statement on the missing children. To our utter disappointment, he refused to acknowledge the missing children. Hargan said:
These children are not ‘lost’; their sponsors—who are usually parents or family members and in all cases have been vetted for criminality and ability to provide for them—simply did not respond or could not be reached when this voluntary call was made. While there are many possible reasons for this, in many cases sponsors cannot be reached because they themselves are illegal aliens and do not want to be reached by federal authorities. This is the core of this issue: In many cases, HHS has been put in the position of placing illegal aliens with the individuals who helped arrange for them to enter the country illegally. This makes the immediate crisis worse and creates a perverse incentive for further violation of federal immigration law.
God save the minorities and their families living in the US. The whole Trump administration seems to be working together in denial of blame!
Hollywood Celebrities Speak up
These atrocities at the hands of the government are appalling. In fact, many celebrities have stepped up and voiced their concern over this. Furthermore, they are not letting Trump administration put this inhumane act to rest!

I don’t understand how anyone could work for @ICEgov. ICE’s policy of separating children from their families under the Trump administration is not only un-American, it’s inhumane.
Call 1-866-DHS-2-ICE and ask them #WhereAreTheChildren?

Many Trump tweets have enraged me since he took office. This may be the worst. He is flat-out lying about the most cruel and inhumane policy of his presidency.
At least own the policy you miserable coward. https://t.co/AfeSTifBCN

This is a matter of humanity, not simply legal responsibility. This is what the outrage is all about. In fact, the officials have a bad history regarding it.
Previously, there were blames on the federal officials that they handed over eight immigrant children to human traffickers.
And people are still not over it. As a result, there has been a massive outrage from the public! USA ICE is in need of serious checking and man hunt at their side!
