AFTER THE Trump administration, in May 2018, unveiled its “zero tolerance” policy, under which migrant families would be separated at the border, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the government “never really intended” to remove children from their parents. That was a lie.

A report by the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General confirmed what was broadly obvious at the time of family separation, as well as before and since — that the administration’s cruel treatment of migrants has been intentional, calculated and surgically effective in dispensing pain and suffering.

I get sick when I read this. The cruelty was always the point.
