After an email from Stephen Miller to a Justice Department official, Deputy A.G. Rod Rosenstein meets with border prosecutors to clarify the new zero-tolerance policy. Every single parent is prosecuted and separated from their children. No exceptions.

He dismissed concerns from at least one prosecutor that children under 5 would be separated from parents if the adults were prosecuted.

“If they are referring, then prosecute. Age of child doesn’t matter,” Mr. Rosenstein said, according to the notes of one person at the meeting.
