An author and attorney on Monday shared a satirical website raising awareness of the Trump administration's child separation policies using the domain TrumpHotels.Org.

Loren Collins, who has written a book on misinformation, told The Hill that he purchased the domain name months ago, but that the site received more than 1 million views on Monday. It has also been shared thousands of times on social media. 

Collins said in an email that he's previously run for state office as a Republican, and was spurred to make the site at the height of the family separation controversy.

The web page includes a "child accommodations" tab, which is illustrated with images of migrant children in cages.

There is a "Se Habla Español" section that features a photo of a mural publicized last year located in a Texas detention facility that depicts Trump in front of an American flag flying atop the White House with a quote taken from Trump's co-authored book, "The Art of the Deal."

A "Handicap Accessibility" section links to a YouTube video of Trump mocking a reporter with a disability during a 2015 campaign rally.

The website uses a slightly different name than TrumpHotels.com, which is used to advertise the Trump Organization's properties.

The Trump Organization did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The parody site states in a disclaimer at the bottom of the home page that it is "an overt exercise of political speech, and it does not serve any commercial purpose."

"This site has no relationship to any commercial establishment or resort, it does not offer any similar products or services such as those provided by any commercial establishments or resorts, and it is in no way intended to deceive or create confusion with or to suggest sponsorship or endorsement by any other business or trademark holder," the website states.
