That does seem to be the the default position for anybody without a blue passport crossing the US border, and even those with such a thing still lose quite a few rights. I take great issue with a lot of things there but consistency would not be one of them.In other words, you're suggesting anyone crossing the border is automatically guilty of other crimes as well. Guilty until proven innocent.
This separation of families bit comes up a lot and I am not entirely sure why it is so contentious as a concept. The implementation and efforts to reunify (assuming no custodial sentence is being given to the adults involved) may need improvements but the idea of it all seems fairly sound to me if "catch and detain" is to be part of your border control policy.Families were not separated under Obama.
