The children are hostages. Use proper terms please.

Look up the definition if necessary. They are hostages.

2. Excellent point. Mexico at least should be making public statements "release our hostages!"

Yes I know it would be a bit awkward for Mexico and other countries whose citizens are fleeing to America to admit their country is so fucked up that their citizens would risk the wrath of a child-abductor dictator and guy who clearly lusted after at least one of his own children

But this could be an interesting new angle. Say Mexico demands return of their infant children. But TrumpCo cronies can't find them. Then Mexico gets all indignant and outraged, and starts saying "you kidnapped our children and won't return them!".

And it's an international nightmare for Rump and his turdmongers, which plays out for the next several months while the BLUE WAVE comes in and knocks all his syncophantic enables on their rich white asses.

3. They are also victims of crimes against humanity

But yes. Their primary use is as bargaining chips for Trump to use to get what he wants. The only reason he overestimated his position is simply because he has no clue what it is to feel even an iota of empathy, sympathy, grief, emotional shock or love. You might as well expect a stone statue to feel these things.

5. They're more like Trump's political prisoners.

He freely admits to using the cruel treatment of immigrants to bolster his poll numbers and appease his rabid voters.

7. The children are kidnap victims

held hostage in Trump concentration camps. All of them are victims of crimes against humanity.

Who knows what those vermin are doing to those poor kids. For all we know, they could be trafficked. Yes, it's possible that tRUMP is running a child trafficking ring from out of the White House!
