What happens to a US citizen with children who is imprisoned while awaiting trial, or after being convicted? They are certainly not allowed to take their children into jail with them. If those children have the other parent or family available, I imagine they are given into the care of those alternatives. If not, we have a foster system. But if we do that with illegal aliens, it would be essentially aiding and abetting their crime. The illegal alien children would be delivered to their destination and disappear into the illegal alien community, doubtless to receive welfare (because with their parents in jail, who wants to support them through labor?) and force the US to catch them a second time when they need to be deported.
The separation happens because of simple necessity. It's not significantly different than what would happen to a US family under similar circumstances. Yes, it sucks to be a child or parent under those circumstances. But when you cross the border illegally you signed up for that.
I have no sympathy.
