New York rappers Nas and Fat Joe are making it hard not to look at the presidency as heartless af. The hip-hop veterans went to social media to give fans a look at immigrant families being torn apart by border control.

Nasir Jones and Joey both used Instagram to share a few horrific shots of what’s currently going on with President Donald Trump‘s immigration policy in effect.

I know that most of you only know me as Angela, and that even writing this feels grossly inadequate, but this has shaken me to my core. Not just because my mother came as an immigrant escaping oppression and stark poverty, but because this is A Human Right’s Violation. Regardless of what your stance is on border control, immigration, asylum seekers, the implementation of these cruel measures should, must turn your stomach. To everyone whose as sickened and enraged as I am by the enactment of this new policy to separate innocent children from their parents, I plead with you to make your voice heard. Protest. Call your Senators (202) 224-3121. Participate in any way that you are able! HOW we enforce our laws is as important as the laws themselves. Sadly throughout history we’ve had an awful track record. And Justifying this tactic because it’s an “effective deterrent” or “they Illegal” doesn’t cut it. Nothing excuses the inhumane treatment of children… of him of her of you of me. #keepfamiliestogether

The Trump administration has opened up three "tender age" detention centers in South Texas for babies that have been forcefully taken from their parents. A fourth infant detention center is about to be opened. This is Rachel Maddow as she gets the breaking news.

Despite having the power to do so, President Trump has refused to let families be detained together.

Mr. Trump has the power on his own to change that zero-tolerance policy at the border, which would once again allow border agents and prosecutors the discretion to allow families to remain together after crossing illegally into the United States. But it would also allow those families to be released while their court proceedings go forward, something Mr. Trump opposes. (New York Times)

Over the past couple of months more than 2,000 children have been separated from their parents after entering the United States illegally.

Since early May, 2,342 children have been separated from their parents after crossing the Southern U.S. border, according to the Department of Homeland Security, as part of a new immigration strategy by the Trump administration that has prompted widespread outcry. (NPR)
