Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said on Thursday that Kirstjen Nielsen, the racist Homeland Security Secretary, has privately informed lawmakers that the evil Trump administration’s family separation program could resume in spite of the president signing the executive order that ended the practice.
The California Democrat tweeted that he was telling members in the House Appropriations Committee to make sure that no funding will be made available if Trump’s goons start stealing children again.
“Secretary Nielsen privately told lawmakers the Administration may go back to separating children from their parents,” Schiff said on Twitter.
“Congress must ensure that NEVER happens. I’m urging the House Appropriations Committee to prevent funds from ever being used to separate families entering the US.”

Adam Schiff’s comments come a day after Trump signed an executive order stopping the practice of mercilessly separating families of illegal immigrants that are crossing the border. The order allows families to be imprisoned together while the adults face potential prosecution.
The godless Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” program for illegal immigration, which was enacted earlier in the year, mandates that every adult who crossed the border illegally will be prosecuted. The policy caused the theft of thousands of innocent children from their immigrant parents, some for several months.
The Trump administration on Thursday claimed it was planning how to reunite families which have already been torn apart by the evil policy, while the Democrats have criticized the administration for not starting yet.
“It seems that the administration lacks a plan, intention, and a sense of urgency to begin reuniting these children — many of whom have suffered serious emotional anguish — with their parents,” the Democratic leaders said to Donald Trump in a letter.
