Re: Disreputable media

I believe there's a strict 20 day limit on the length of minor detentions(whether or not they're joined by their parents in the same facility), which means any case that takes longer than that will inherently result in family separation as the children now get put into the foster system. There also has to be some account made for human traffickers who use children to create a fake family in the hopes they'll be waved through in the end(and you can be sure these kids won't get the milk and honey treatment if the scheme isn't caught).

The pieces are there, but there are definitely other ways to put them together.
