The Difference Is, Mr. Grimm, Those Mothers Come Back

From The Hill:

Republican congressional candidate Michael Grimm said Tuesday that the widely circulated audio tapes of migrant kids crying after being separated from their families is the “exact same” as the sounds one would hear at a daycare.

“I think it’s extremely unfortunate. But what people are forgetting — they just want to listen to those tapes — I can take you to any nursery and you’re going to hear the same exact things as a mother leaves to go to work and has to leave her child at daycare. You’re going to hear those same exact things,” Michael Grimm, who is running in New York’s 11th Congressional District, said to NY1.

  1. In one case parents voluntarily leave their children in the hands of a professional at a licensed facility whose records are publicly available, and those parents are allowed to withdraw their children from that facility at any time.
    In the other case parents are being forced to give up their children. Their children are then locked in cages overseen by individuals with no experience or training in caring for children as far as we know. It’s impossible to tell because even the locations of many of the facilities are being kept secret and the only publicly available information is being carefully controlled with no journalists allowed in. ICE, which oversees the facilities, has also asked the the National Archives and Records Administration for permission to begin destroying its own records.
    But, yes, other than that the two are exactly the same.
