Where Are the Girls?

The Washington Post: “As journalists and elected officials have gotten a chance to tour facilities in which children are being held after being separated from their families under the Trump administration’s ‘zero-tolerance’ immigration policy, a question has cropped up on social media: Where are the girls?”

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was asked during a news briefing on Monday where the young girls separated from their parents are.“I don’t know,” she replied.

Kerry Eleveld: “The Trump administration has made the clear strategic decision that showing pictures of little girls wailing post-separation or perhaps those of young girls trying to soothe smaller ones they don’t even know in detention doesn’t play into their all-immigrants-are-future-gang members election narrative. Thus, we have seen zero pictures of little girls in detention and also zero pictures of toddlers.”
