Enjoyed this pod cast, but wtf man? Put them in a van and send them back to Mexico? The problem with this is that the families being split up are claiming asylum, and often are from central America. Sending someone back to their homeland who has claimed asylum without vetting their request could be just sending them to their death. You are over simplifying and it frustrates me. It is undoubtedly cruel to hold children in "cages" until we can vet their asylum claims (legally we can only do so for 20 days), it is also illogical to release the families into the countries, claiming asylum becomes a get out of jail free card for child trafficking. It's a lose-lose scenario unless you can improve holding conditions and expedite asylum case resolution.... See Ted Cruz's proposed solution.
