In one of their final pre-Election Day ads, the anti-Trump conservative group known as The Lincoln Project has unveiled a harsh new takedown of the president over his punitively cruel treatment of immigrants and their children. Infamously, the Trump administration at one point implemented a policy of separating families who arrived at the southern border. Now, lawyers who were appointed by a federal judge to find members of families who the Trump administration separated have revealed that they have not yet been able to locate the parents of 545 of the children who had been separated from their parents. This crisis seems to clearly establish that the “point” was always the cruelty. The new Lincoln Project ad, which was produced in cooperation with People for the American Way, spotlights this situation.

In the new ad, a narrator says the following:

‘Trump’s plan was to crush immigrant children, tearing them from their parents’ arms, locking them in cages — that was the plan from the start. Now 545 children are alone in the world. They will never see their parents again — never hear “I love you” from their mother or father. 545 children with nowhere to go — no place to call home. 545 children who have had their childhood ripped away. What will that trauma do to them? Who will they become? It’s inhuman. It’s sick. It’s un-American. Vote for Joe Biden.’

The Trump administration has frequently treated immigrants with punitive cruelty. In one infamous example out of many, in mid-2019, immigration lawyers had to pressure the government to provide immediate medical care to four severely ill migrant toddlers who the lawyers found at a Texas detention facility. One of the toddlers was unresponsive. HuffPost reports that the “lawyers feared that if they had not shown up at the facility, the sick kids would have received zero medical attention and potentially died.” This appalling treatment of immigrants who have come to the U.S. seeking a better and safer life is what the Trump administration has been perpetrating.

Immigration policy was, of course, one of the top priorities of Donald Trump heading into office — although it might be generous to call it a “policy,” since the president’s perspective was more like a raging commitment to violent anti-immigrant vitriol. He still claims, nonsensically, that Mexico is somehow “paying” for the southern U.S. border wall. They’re not.

Meanwhile, as Election Day approaches, Trump isn’t the only incumbent Republican facing a tough time — South Carolina’s U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham is as well. In a video released this week, The Lincoln Project mocks Graham’s recent desperate pleas for donations. The video splices Graham’s comments with footage from a horror movie called The Ring, in which a character gets a menacing phone call after watching a supernatural video.
