Fake news? DHS calls out NBC News for 'factually inaccurate' story on Trump's border policy

NBC News reported Tuesday that a new Trump administration order gives illegal immigrant parents separated from their children two options: leave the country with them, or without them.


NBC News reports:

After a court order to reunite more than 2,000 migrant children who were separated from their parents in May and June, the Trump administration has instructed immigration agents to give those parents two options: leave the country with your kids — or leave the country without them, according to a copy of a government form obtained by NBC News.

The new instructions to agents do not allow parents who were separated from their children under President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy to reunite with their children while they await a decision on asylum, a protection sought by thousands of migrant families fleeing violence in Central America.

However, the Department of Homeland Security has told the Washington Examiner that NBC’s report is “factually incorrect” and that the policy in question has existed for decades.


Anna Giaritelli reports:

Julia Ainsley and Jacob Soboroff reported the only way the Trump administration will allow family units to be reunited is if the parent agrees to be deported and have his or her asylum request rescinded. Then the parent can return home with or without the child.

A DHS spokesperson told the Washington Examiner that the policy being referenced has existed for “decades” and that Ainsley misinterpreted comments U.S. officials made in response to a recent court order and never asked DHS for comment.

“She doesn’t know what she’s reading,” the DHS spokesperson said over the phone when asked about the information in the story. A representative for NBC Universal could not be reached for comment.

The DHS official said parents and children are held in different dockets so if a parent finishes illegal entry court proceedings and is ordered deported, they are given the option to then ask that the child be taken out of his or her separate docket and also sent home.

The spokesperson added that parents are not being forced to voluntarily deport themselves in order to be reunited with their children.

The Washington Examiner says a representative for NBC Universal could not be reached for comment, and the NBC News story reads that “U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement did not respond to a request for comment.”
