On Thursday’s The Beat, MSNBC host Ari Melber and liberal actor George Takei fretted over the Trump administration planning to keep some illegal immigrant children in former internment camps from the World War II era even as Melber admitted that the Barack Obama administration had done the same thing. The two also at times misleadingly gave the impression that there is still a zero tolerance policy that leads to the separation of parents and children even though a court halted the practice last year.
