    Mick Mulvaney Says Immigrant Child Separation Policy Is Fair

    Mick Mulvaney, director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, said on Wednesday that he thinks that even though it's expensive, it's fair that the U.S. pursues its current zero tolerance immigration policy, in which children are separated from their parents and sometimes flown thousands of miles away. Speaking at the CB Insights Future of Fintech Conference in New York, Mulvaney explained that those who attempt to immigrate to the U.S. legally are not being separated from their families. Mulvaney made the argument that if he were arrested for drunk driving and thrown in jail for a night, his children would not be permitted to stay the night with him in his cell.

"The family separation process that has been widely publicized is not at all aligned with the values of American Airlines -- we bring families together, not apart," the Fort Worth, Texas-based company said in a statement. "We have therefore requested the federal government to immediately refrain from using American for the purpose of transporting children who have been separated from their families due to the current immigration policy.
