There's problems with the comparisons.  The Trump admin wanted to enforce border law by charging illegal border crossers with crimes.  In order to do that, they were legally required to separate children from parents because the courts decided during the Obama admin era that it's inhumane and therefore illegal to jail children with their parents when the children themselves broke no laws, so the kids should be allowed to be transferred to stay with other family that's already in the US or whatnot.  Which is why there's photos from Obama era of kids in cages too.

The Trump admin's fault is that they were too dumb to anticipate this being a political minefield, and also that the kids weren't exactly kept in the nicest conditions.

I've already made the basis for the comparisons clear, and it's not about the legal wrangling involved. And if you parse the details of other acceptable comparisons like the Japanese internments, you'll find huge differences as well, so I'm not sure what that proves.
