All 5 first ladies speak out against family-separation immigration policy

GETTYTrump’s team have blamed Barack Obama for the US President’s controversial new immigration policy

A delegation to McAllen, Texas, was led by senators Jeff Merkley of OR and Chris Van Hollen of Maryland. "Be smart America!", the president wrote. "This is something that transcends politics". That means an average of about 65 children per day were separated from their parents under the zero-tolerance initiative that Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen unveiled in May.

Rep. Andy Harris, the only Republican in Maryland's congressional delegation, said Monday he was working with colleagues to increase "family facilities" at the Southwest border so immigration authorities can stop separating children from parents. The policy has seen every illegal border-jumper criminally prosecuted and nearly 2,000 children separated from their parents in the last two months, as the parents await trial.

The President's entrenchment amid a loud uproar comes amid a developing humanitarian - and political - crisis on the United States' border with Mexico, where at least 2,000 children have been separated from their parents as a result of the administration's policy. "For those seeking asylum at ports of entry, we have continued the policy from previous Administrations and will only separate if the child is in danger, there is no custodial relationship between "family" members, or if the adult has broken a law", she explained.

Top conservatives, including key Trump allies, have introduced bills to keep the migrant families together.

Democrats have that the administration do something to keep migrant families together.

Because children can not be placed in criminal detention, the policy has resulted in a spike in children being separated from their parents. Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME said on Sunday the number "may well be higher". We need borders, we need security.

Fox News hosts Laura Ingraham said the detention centres were "essentially summer camps" for migrant children.

Tech leaders are increasingly speaking out against President Trump's policies.

"I can go home with my auntie, at least", the girl said, proudly explaining that she memorised it. "I don't want to try people".

He added: "The vast majority of those children still tend to be the unaccompanied minors, but we have had a big surge in families bringing children or some adults bringing children with them".

Toomey's remarks place him in a growing group of Republicans who have criticized the Trump administration's heightened "zero tolerance" immigration plan.

California Senator Dianne Feinstein has the support of 43 senators, all Democrats, for a bill in her chamber. "No more lawlessness", she said during a briefing.

The Republican-controlled House of Representatives is expected to consider two immigration bills. The legislation wouldn't explicitly forbid the incarceration of children alongside their parents.

The entire House Republican Conference will meet Tuesday evening before their first vote series of the week, with President Donald Trump in attendance. "I know she's not an American citizen", the aunt said. What's heard in the audio are presumed Central American children wailing and sobbing for their parents.

The administration has claimed there is no policy of separation.
