The Trump administration violated international law when it separated migrant children from their families, a UN expert said Monday.

That's not all, said Manfred Nowak, the independent expert leading a global study on children deprived of liberty. With over 100,000 children still in migration-related detention, the United States leads the world with the highest number of children in migration-related custody in the world.

"separating children — as was done by the Trump administration — from their parents, even small children, at the Mexican-U.S. border is absolutely prohibited by the Convention on the Rights of the Child," Nowak continued. "I would call it inhuman treatment for both the parents and the children."

The US is the only U.N. member state not to have ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Countries such as China have ratified the convention.

Absolutely terrible, many governments are committing human rights abuses sadly e.g. China detaining Muslims en masse in Xinjiang, and children due to the Trump administration
