Trump and his supporters are lying when they say separating parents from children is following a Democratic law. It’s Trump’s policy. I guess they’re not proud of it so they won’t admit it.
Sarah Sanders stands at the White House podium and repeats Trump's lie that there is a law requiring children to be taken from their parents at the border.
This is a lie, and they know it.
There is no law, it is Trump's policy. He started this, and he could stop it at any time.
