The interweebs have sprung up a new meme along the lines of "what about all the US citizens that are in jail? They are separated from their children. Where is the outrage about that?" Implying that since it is OK to separate kids from convicted criminals then it is OK to do the same for illegal immigrants.

Which is soooooo stupid. Manly because if you are a citizen and are in jail chances are about 99% that you have been CONVICTED of a crime. In the case of immigrants losing their children, they have been ACCUSED of a crime but that has not yet been adjudicated. The Turnip's administration decided that the immigrants would be detained instead of continuing the previous approach of charging them and releasing them pending court appearances. That is 100% the choice of POTUS and has zero to do with what the law does or does not say.
