NPR published a piece Tuesday headlined, “What We Know: Family Separation And ‘Zero Tolerance’ At The Border.”
From the tweet NPR sent out to promote the story, it looks like there’s something important they don’t know.
On the policy of separating immigrant families, here's what we know regarding:
-What happens when families are separated?
-Where do the children go?
-Can parents who're prosecuted be reunited with their kids?
-What was the policy under President Obama?https://t.co/o4O041yYDH

Who’s separating “immigrant families”?
This headline is missing the word “illegal” in front of the word “immigrant”. I’m sure it was just an oversight. https://t.co/rbosXh0NRc

You left out a really important word that also starts with an "i". https://t.co/53ZL0JXSg1

You missed a word…."Illegal" immigrant

You forgot to mention that they are here illegally

You forgot the word 'illegal' in front of the word 'immigrant'.
Sure it is just an oversight that you will quickly fix.

That's inaccurate. It's illegal immigrant families. There's a difference.

I think you left out one word. Illegal. It goes right before immigrant. Never good to leave out important details when reporting news.

Can you please let me know where and how we are separating immigrant families? Thank you.

They are not immigrants. They are illegal immigrants. There are immigrants in my neighborhood. They have their children living with them. But they are legally here.

Thinking you can control the narrative by changing the language shows that you know your lying.

Illegal aliens! And only those applying for asylum. The parents have control over this.

You're advocating on the behalf of the cartels, coyotes and the parents that are exploiting their children as a legal shield. Mexico, US and Canada will all except an asylum application at a legal crossing or consulate office, and that doesn't endanger children.

I love how NPR highlights information from LIRS covering the last 9 months but not LIRS information about family separations covering the last 9 years.

Apparently, what you don't know is that you are showing a picture of a processing center, not a detention center.
Or maybe you do.

Here’s the only fact we know, people that come here illegally are actually breaking the law. We also know that we’ve always separated criminals from their families, do you live under a rock?
