This is unconscionable.

Lawyers working to reunite migrant families separated by the Trump administration before and during its “zero tolerance” policy at the border now believe the number of separated children for whom they have not been able to find parents is 666, higher than they told a federal judge last month, according to an email obtained by NBC News.
Nearly 20 percent, or 129, of those children were under 5 at the time of the separation, according to a source familiar with the data.
In the email, Steven Herzog, the attorney leading efforts to reunite the families, explains that the number is higher because the new group includes those “for whom the government did not provide any phone number.” Previously, the lawyers said they could not find the parents of 545 children after they had tried to make contact but had been unsuccessful.
What the Trump Administration did to these immigrant families is criminal and I hope there are lawyers prepared to sue Trump and his cronies over these policy decisions.
I will never understand how treating people like this was not enough to see Trump voted out of office alone.
Even adding this to his constant lies and failure to control the Coronavirus only saw him barely lose the election.
I think about half of the people in this country need a shot of empathy.
