Immigrant parents get pamphlet before being separated from children

President Donald Trump speaks to reporters at the White House Friday

But other members of the administration who have had a central role in immigration policy embraced the decision to separate families.

"She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws but also a country that governs with heart".

The crackdown expanded in April, when the administration announced a "zero tolerance" policy on the border to prosecute immigrants for entering the country illegally in the hopes they could be quickly deported and that the swift deportations would prevent more people from coming.

Mr Trump has blamed a law "Democrats gave us" for the policy, but it is unclear which law he is referring to. The Evangelical Immigration Table, a group of Evangelical religious organizations including the National Association of Evangelicals and Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, has written to Trump asking to "resolve this situation of families being separated" by reversing the zero-tolerance policy, stating, "the state should separate families only in the rarest of instances". Pope Francis posted a tweet last week that some interpreted as referring to the new US practice of placing migrant children in centers separate from their parents.

Trump administration officials have repeatedly defended the policy of separating kids and adults, arguing that it acts as a deterrent against illegal immigration.

Stories have spread of children being torn from their parents' arms, and parents not being able to find where their kids have gone. Conway told NBC's Meet the Press that "nobody likes" splitting up families and Giuliani told CBS' Face the Nation that the he and the president do not "like to see children taken away from their parents". Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) to end the family-separation tactics, calling it "too broad". "Trump and Sessions say they are following laws".

In the first two weeks of the "zero-tolerance" approach, 658 minors - including many babies and toddlers - were separated from the adults that travelled with them, according to U.S. border officials. We need border security.

The push toward immigration votes in the House is intensifying the divide among Republicans on one of the party's most animating issues and fueling concerns that a voter backlash could cost the GOP control of the House in November.

"It is inconsistent with our American values to separate these children from their parents unless there's evidence of abuse or another very good reason", she said. Since then, the administration has been steadily eroding protections for immigrant children and families.

The Trump administration has faced waves of criticism as of late after the Department of Homeland Security confirmed that almost 2,000 children were separated from their parents between April 19 and May 31 of this year. "She's an fantastic mom, a kind and caring stepmother, and she truly cares deeply about the well-being of all children".

But Mr. Trump has yet to recant his rejection personally, leaving conservatives wary of being left out on a limb if they back an "amnesty" without having Mr. Trump to provide political cover with their right-wing base. "That is traumatizing to children who are innocent victims".

Conway, however, put the onus on Democrats, saying if there are serious about overhauling the system, "they'll come together again and try to close these loopholes and get real immigration reform". It was focused on freeing and otherwise helping children who come to the border without a parent or guardian.

"Because every day, we get stronger and they get weaker", Bannon said at the event. Two competing bills are headed to the floor, a hard-line immigration measure that is expected to go down, and a compromise version crafted by the House Republican leadership.
