POLITICS 07/31/2018 03:57 pm ET Updated 1 hour ago The Trump administration went through with the policy anyway. By Elise Foley The government official leading the effort to reunite immigrant families separated at the border said Tuesday that he and others warned in private meetings over the past year that a policy that split families would be harmful to kids.
