But he didn't discuss the more than 2,000 immigrant children who have been separated from their families in recent weeks or the last-minute executive order he signed to halt on his own policy. Instead he used it to highlight the families of victims killed by immigrants. The "angel families" are what Trump calls "victims of illegal immigration." They were brought on stage clutching large photos of their loved ones and recounted how they dealt with "permanent separation" after...
