In an interview with VICE news, Steve Bannon defended the policy of separating children at the border.
“I believe 100% in the child separation policy.” – Steve Bannon
Remember that GoFundMe to privately fund the border wall? Bannon is trying to make that a reality. @kandavolu went to a town hall for it in Arizona.

I honestly don’t understand why more members of the Trump Administration don’t stand strongly behind this policy. This policy has nothing to do with hurting children. In fact, child separation is all about keeping children safe. Children should not be held in facilities with adults and our border agents also need to make sure children aren’t allowed to stay with human smugglers that are trying to traffic them into the country.
