American Airlines tells Trump administration not to use its planes to transport migrant children separated from families

American Airlines tells Trump administration not to use its planes to transport migrant children separated from familiesAmerican Airlines has asked the federal government not to use its planes to transport migrant children who have been separated from their families, widening a backlash to a new Trump administration policy. Under the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy towards illegal border crossings, adults are separated from their children so they can face prosecution. Deploring the family separations as “not at all aligned with the values of American Airlines”, the carrier said in a statement that it had asked the federal government to “immediately refrain” from bringing children separated from their parents due to the new policy on board their aircraft.
