There was no official statement announcing this change of policy, but then if this was your policy you probably wouldn't want to announce it either. Though, in fairness, if this was you, you wouldn't do this. I don't say "probably wouldn't do this" not knowing precisely who you all are, but "wouldn't," period, without even knowing. And I feel comfortable with that because, since it takes a psychopathic cruel, malicious personality from a position of power to devise such a plan (and to be clear, I'm not talking about the soulless people who might agree with the plan -- that's easy to do if you're empty inside and have no responsibility for the action-- but people who are in a position to come up with such a plan, think it's a good idea and then chose to put it into operation, which is such a infinitesimal number of human creatures) that I know the odds are in my favor.
Making the story more pathetic is that no department of the government wants to take responsibility for the decision -- one group shifting the action on ICE, and ICE saying, "No way, it wasn't us" sending it back. But then, again, who'd want to take responsibility for it?? Okay, other than Trump and Stephen Miller, that is.
But I'm not going to go on about how awful this is or why and that it has to be stopped. After all, you either instantly know why this is pathetically repugnant to all the United States or human beings stand for and therefore don't need it explained -- or you're okay with it, so no explanation will make its way into the hell hole where you live.
All I'll say is what I've said before, though perhaps even a bit more bluntly --
As gut-sickening as this change of Trump administration policy is, this is not about Trump. We know who he is. This is about the elected officials of the Republican Party who enable him, have been silent about this action, have not screamed out that this Must Be Stopped because it's not only un-American but inhuman, who sit idly by as it rolls itself out in front of them, and enable it to happen. And are therefore complicit in it.
This is about the Republican Party. This is who they are. This is what they're okay with. This is what they let happen. The elected members of the Republican Party are silent about and accepting of taking critically ill children with cancer and life-threatening illnesses without which they will die, and removing them from hospitals to send them out of the United States. Home of the brave, land of the free, give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.
Or, in some cases, just yearning to breathe.
