The Trump administration reportedly will soon start requiring parents to input their fingerprints when coming to pick up their children taken into custody at the border as unaccompanied minors, which seems like a wholly reasonable request and we wonder why it wasn’t done earlier. From NBC News:
But the decision isn’t going over very well and it’s being suggested that this really is just to cut down on illegal immigration:
In an effort to crack down on illegal immigration by minors, the Trump admin. will soon require fingerprints from parents coming to claim their migrant children from the U.S. HHS, according to senior administration officials. https://t.co/AhetuHyqMK

Libs were outraged that the Trump administration lost 1500 unaccompanied minors in the system (which we told you weren’t really lost). They’ve been beating the Trump administration over the head with it for days. They purposely ignored that many of the kids weren’t missing at all and that their parents or sponsors were hiding from the government to avoid deportations.
So now that the Trump administration put in place a measure to increase security, he’s a Nazi:
Jesus! What's next? Numbers tattooed on their forearms? This #IllegitimatePresident and his evil elf Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III are small men; petty, cruel bullies. We must counter their evil with the biggest blue tsunami in the history of the republic. #Basta https://t.co/RkM4ddULJ4

@HHSGov: Any parent afraid to come forward is not fit to be a parent.
The people who said this are not fit to be government officials. https://t.co/TEB8i2msB8

In a few weeks they will have to will a gold Mexican flag on their shoulders or chest (regardless of country of origin) so all true Americans can easily spot those who are different from them. https://t.co/pRAldqyfQE

Maybe we wouldn’t be in this mess today if President Selfie Stick had put this measure in place in 2016:
When such a proposal was floated under the Obama administration in 2016, ICE also wanted to use the fingerprints as a way to search for immigration status and possibly deport parents coming to claim their children. It is unclear whether the agencies will allow the fingerprints to be used for immigration enforcement in the agreement, which is still being finalized.
This thread nicely untangles the recent media freakout about treatment of illegal immigrants https://t.co/FP5PtCkA7I
