Facebook Users Mock State Department For Poorly Timed ‘Family Travel Hacks’ Event

"What's the difference between a cage and chain-linked partition? Asking for a child."

U.S. Department of State: Consular Affairs (Facebook)

The U.S. Government has faced intense criticism over the past several weeks as outrage grows over immigrant children being separated from their parents at the border. In an attempt to focus on something a bit less horrific, the State Department came up with the brilliant idea of holding a “Family Travel Hacks Q&A” on their Facebook page, encouraging users to ask burning questions about how to travel safely as a family.

Unfortunately, the State Department failed to realize the tone-deaf nature of the event and users were quick to offer up some hilarious and brutal questions about the current state of family travel in America.

One user could not resist asking a tongue-in-cheek question that referenced the cages in which detained children are currently being kept.U.S. Department of State: Consular Affairs (Facebook)

Another user asked about the hazards of traveling with sandals and Crocs before seamlessly transitioning into questioning the Department’s perceived bias against anyone other than Americans.

A father of an autistic child wondered how the Department might be equipped to handle his kid, given their infamous mistreatment of children who have been forcibly separated from their parents.

And one user decided to bypass any layered sarcasm, choosing instead to compare the government to Nazi Germany because of its role in establishing modern concentration camps.

And finally, one user asked the question we have all really been wondering since we first learned of these detainment centers.
