The Guardian | June 30, 2018 | ~ Almost 600 arrested at Washington protest over Trump immigration policy ~ | ..

At the same time, parents should be allowed to talk on the phone with their children ten minutes a day. However, it is far from certain that families can be reunited under normal conditions.
