At a press gaggle in the Oval Office, President Donald Trump called his detention centers for migrant children a humanitarian crisis. But rather than take responsibility for his Department of Justice zero tolerance policy's creation of the inhumane conditions and overcrowding, Trump told reporters the Democrats were at fault.

Trump also repeated his claim that his administration treated detained children they separated from their family's "better than Obama" and specifically told reporters to remember his claim. Blame President Barack Obama has been a consistent theme in Trump's tenure in office.

A new class-action lawsuit argues that the U.S. government should cover mental health treatment costs for immigrant children who were separated from their parents. The suit, filed by a group of lawyers in Federal court, also demands unspecified damages for the children who were separated under Trump’s now-defunct zero-tolerance border policy.

The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court in Massachusetts. This is just the latest move to unravel the damage caused by Trump’s reactionary policy.  Previously, a California Federal judge ordered the end of forced separations between immigrant children and their parents. That judge also ordered the reunification of families who were already separated.

Thursday, the administration of President Donald Trump continued to try to get out from under the issues they created with implementation of the zero tolerance policy by changing the rules as opposed to adhering to the guidance already in place.

The Departments of Homeland Security (DHS) and Health and Human Services (DHHS) announced the Trump administration, rather than limit the length of child detention as prescribed by the Flores Settlement in 1997, would enact new regulations allowing them to detain children longer.

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.
