During the final presidential debate, President Donald Trump claimed that migrant children who've been separated from their parents and are in U.S. custody have been "well taken care of" when questioned about his highly criticized immigration policies. But eyewitness accounts from doctors, lawyers, politicians, and journalists have told a different story.
Earlier this week, lawyers from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and other pro-bono law firms reported that they've been unable to locate the parents of 545 children who were separated at the border as a result of the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy announced in April 2018.
During Thursday night's debate, Trump was questioned about how these families would be reunited. "Do you have a plan to reunite the kids?" moderator Kristen Welker asked. "Yes ... we're trying very hard ... they are so well taken care of, they're in facilities that are so clean." Eyewitnesses who have visited these facilities, however, paint a different picture.
