In a meeting with prosecutors at the southwestern border, Attorney General Jeff Sessions informs the group that, on Trump’s orders, it’s time to take away children who cross the border.
Over the next two years, nearly 3,000 children — some still too young to speak — are removed from their parents and placed in detention centers with other children.
Hundreds of those children have yet to be reunited with their parents when Trump leaves office; the Trump administration deported them without their kids. In some cases, the administration lost contact information for the parents.
Donald Trump was not the first criminal elected to public office, and he won’t be the last. It’s up to US to hold them accountable.

The transnational crime syndicate operating within the United States did not begin with Donald Trump and won’t end with him, either. Be informed now before it’s too late.
Trump File would not be possible without the hard work of journalists, photographers, and other citizens dedicating their time and energy to documenting the events that brought us here. We are especially grateful to The Moscow Project for their in-depth timeline of Trump/Russia events and to Sarah Kendzior for her book Hiding In Plain Sight.
