Some Pertinent Numbers

Please review and compare these statistics:

(1) There are 428,000 children in US foster care:


(2) There are 53,000 children in US juvenile detention at any given time:


(3) The US immigration system has separated 3,700 children from their parents:


Why are we fixated on #3, while more or less ignoring #1 and #2? Are we really concerned about these kids, or just using them for political purposes?
