Family Separation Isn’t Trump’s Katrina; It’s Worse: Theme of the Week

This Week Was Nightmare at the Border Week

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Like the headlines, Bloomberg Opinion’s commentary this week was dominated by President Donald Trump’s policy of separating immigrant families at the southern border. We wrote about the cruelty of the policy, explored better ways to handle migration and cut through the White House’s misinformation about both the separations and the threats posed by immigration. And we started to explore the legacy of this episode, which some are calling Trump’s “Hurricane Katrina” moment – although that ignores how he already had one of those in Puerto Rico.
