Trump defends separating families at USA border, ‘politically correct or not’

Donald Trump says he will not let US become 'migrant camp'

Speaking before the National Federation of Independent Business Tuesday afternoon, Trump defended a policy that has led to 2,000 children being separated from their parents by claiming that there were no alternatives.

It's estimated that around 2,000 children have been separated from their families since the policy began.

The Republican president blamed Democrats for not coming to the table to negotiate immigration legislation. "They don't care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest our Country, like MS-13", Trump tweeted.

Trump also argued that Democrats support illegal immigration because they view immigrants as "potential voters".

Donahue also urged lawmakers to act on the separation of families as well as "permanent protection for Dreamers, and permanent relief for long-term beneficiaries of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program". So guess who's into this particularly cruel form of child abuse?

Democrats and some in Mr Trump's own Republican Party have strongly condemned the administration. But Trump reiterated the accusation on Tuesday.

They have joined a growing chorus of voices condemning the policy, as the White House said it was looking at emergency legislation meant to keep immigrant families together, tabled by Republican senator Ted Cruz, of Texas.

At the same time, the President appeared to suggest the practice could act as a deterrent for future migrants considering entering the USA with their children. We do not want adults to bring children into this country unlawfully, either, placing those children at risk. We want a country with heart.

"We will not apologize for the job we do, or for the job law enforcement does for doing the job that the American people expect us to do", she said Monday.

Manuel Padilla, the area's Border Patrol chief, said, "When you exempt a group of people from the law.that creates a draw". "Maybe it's politically correct or maybe it's not". I have asked my local, state, and federal representatives to demand that the administration stop the practice of separating migrant families.

The growing crowds at these detention centers have thrust Trump's immigration policy into the spotlight, and he has faced calls to end the separation of families from Democrats, Republicans, celebrities and commentators, many of whom were silent while the Obama administration did the same thing. Their children are then classified as "unaccompanied minors" and are transferred to the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Refugee Resettlement.

Calls are mounting on Capitol Hill for the Trump administration to end the separation of families at the southern border ahead of a visit from President Donald Trump to discuss legislation.

He's not the only one suggesting legislative changes.

"We have one chance to get it right".

"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", spokesperson Stephanie Grisham said.

"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best ... We're going to fix the problem". "They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people", Trump said at the time.

On Tuesday, he revived his assertion that some countries are not sending their "best", and threatened to withdraw U.S. aid.
