The Inspector General found that Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy would have separated 26,000 children from their families if it had continued

An Inspector General report was released on November 27 that showed that DHS predicted that its “zero tolerance” policy at the border would have separated 26,000 children. Trump ended the policy after a month in June 2018. The report also found that the Inspector General could not confirm the actual number of families separated, because DHS lacked the procedure and technology to effectively track separated children. Critics have attacked this point in particular, contending that without sufficient tracking methods, families should not have been separated at all. DHS did change their procedure to more effectively track families, but this was after the “zero tolerance” policy was scrapped
