US Border Patrol accused of misleading immigrants while separating families: ‘They’re taking kids for baths and never returning'Federal public defenders say that immigration enforcement officials in the United States have repeatedly deceived immigrant parents arriving in the US seeking shelter from violent conditions in their home country, telling those individuals that they are taking their children away for baths or other benign reasons only to never return with them.
