Should DHS separate families crossing the border?

Jeff Sessions DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen defend 'zero tolerance' immigration policy that breaks up families

A spokeswoman for Melania Trump said: "Mrs Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform".

Almost 2,000 minors were separated from their parents or adult guardians who illegally crossed into the United States over a recent 6-week period, officials said Friday, June 15, as debate raged over how to end the deeply controversial practice.

But it's become tougher to deport people as they've learned to exploit parts of USA law that are more lenient on children and families, and on people who claim asylum - even if their case is shaky.

In fact, there is no law that requires families to be separated at the border.

Some moderate Republicans have also called on Mr Trump to stop the separations. Former Barack Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau commented, "The President's son likes a tweet about how crying children who've been separated from their parents are actually crisis actors".

"I visited Thailand and witnessed firsthand the trauma of parents and children separated by circumstances beyond their control".

President TrumpDonald John TrumpEx-ethics chief calls on Trump to end "monstrous" migrant policies Laura Bush blasts Trump migrant policy as "cruel" and "immoral" USA denies report of coalition airstrike on Syria MORE is facing backlash from Republicans and Democrats alike over the issue.

"I say it's very strongly the Democrats fault." he said. "This is America, and so either that is who we are or this is who we are and this is our choice right now", said Representative Beto O' Rourke, (D) El Paso.

The Trump administration has sought several amendments to the TVPRA, arguing that many unaccompanied migrant children are not actually victims of human trafficking, and therefore most of those children should be "promptly returned to their home countries".

But the recent wave of children being taken from their families on the United States border with Mexico has provoked widespread outrage, including from some Republicans. Crime in Germany is way up. "Change the laws!" he said in another tweet.

"We're stuck with these awful laws". "The Democrats have to change their law - that's their law". "That can not be the answer".

Google makes 'App Maker' generally available
This "low-code" tool is now generally available and a part of G Suite's various offerings for businesses, as well as schools. The company argues that IT executives' attention is on security and governance, not on app development.

She added that "the test of any nation is how we treat the most vulnerable among us".

DHS released photos of the centres after a small group of reporters and politicians went on a tour of a facility in Texas over the weekend. We need a wall.

In fact, it was Trump's administration that broke with a longstanding practice of processing migrant families in civil, rather than criminal, proceedings that allow families to be held together. "And it can be taken care of quickly, beautifully, and we'll have safety. If you smuggle aliens. we will prosecute you". CNN is looking into reports that these individuals are being turned away there, as well. The law makes no provision for denying asylum seekers entry if the ports are busy.

One bill would limit, but not fully prohibit family separations, fund Trump's wall and give legal protections to young immigrants, known as "Dreamers", who were brought to the country illegally as children.

But that support has not helped lawmakers resolve an impasse over immigration and pass legislation to aid Dreamers.

After Mr Trump ordered tougher action, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a "zero-tolerance" policy on 7 May.

"My message to members is clear: You have a chance".

"We don't want what is happening with immigration in Europe to happen with us!"

Several groups of lawmakers toured a nearby facility in the U.S. city of Brownsville, Texas, that houses hundreds of immigrant children. "It's a simple choice", she said.

She called the Trump administration's policy immoral and cruel.

Senator Susan Collins, a Republican from ME, said the administration was sending a message to migrants. "It is time to fix it", Nielsen said.
