On Sunday night's broadcast, CBS News 60 Minutes presented an in-depth review of the Trump administration's family separation policy and the lingering effects on the detained children. The zero tolerance policy came through a Justice Department memo issued by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The memo required all federal prosecutors to treat every case of entry into or living in the United States as a criminal act and prosecute every case, instead of using prosecutorial discretion and remanding some cases to civil court. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under Kirstjen Nielsen also focused its efforts on the southern border and immigrants of South and Central American origin, which drew calls of racism against the Trump administration.

Fresh off a lie laden 60 Minutes interview, President Donald Trump sat down with the the Associated Press to do the same.

From oft-repeated false statements—like dismissing his decade long working relationship with personal lawyer Michael Cohen—or new ones like his defense of the Saudi government in the killing of Washington Post Jamal Khashoggi, the interview was Trumpian in its ability to overwhelm the viewer with falsehoods and tangents.

White House senior adviser on policy Stephen Miller—architect of the zero tolerance immigration policy that led to over 3,000 children being separated from their parents—can add hypocrisy to his many talents according to Dr. David Glosser. Strong words of rebuke from Glosser, but he should know Miller well since Glosser is his uncle.

Dr. David S. Glosser—retired neuropsychologist—spent time as a member of the Neurology faculties of Boston University School of Medicine and Jefferson Medical College. Dr. Glosser also has a sister, Miriam Glosser Miller.

The Trump administration has recently come under fire for its policy of forcibly separating children from their parents. Although Trump issued somewhat of a mea culpa, by signing an executive order ending his own administration's policy of forcible separation, the damage was still done.

Through the executive order, Trump is basically ordering that the policy that children be separated from their undocumented parents be replaced with a policy that entire families would be detained, despite previously asserting that “you can't do it by executive order."
