Stop separating children and parents at the border

Stephen Miller Was Driving Force Behind Trump Family Separation Policy A far-right darling in the White House was the one who convinced Trump the US should separate parents from their children at the border

Donald Trump told reporters on Friday, when asked about separating migrant families at the U.S. -Mexico border: "I hate the children being taken away".

It came the day after his administration said that it had taken almost 2,000 children away from their parents in a six-week period ending last month, as part of a new zero tolerance policy that refers for criminal prosecution all immigrants apprehended crossing the border without authorization.

The new policy, enforced by Attorney-General Jeff Sessions, charges adults crossing the border illegally in the criminal justice system meaning children are separated from them.

President Trump has consistently blamed Democrats for the situation, saying their support for passage of a broader immigration bill would end the separations.

Customs and Border Protection provided the document to CNN during a walk-through of a border processing center in McAllen, Texas, near the US-Mexico border.

She called on Congress to simultaneously address Trump's border wall and the fate of the young immigrants left in limbo after the president rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

The president has said he dislikes the policy, and has attempted to lay the blame at the door of the Democrats, but in an interview with the Times, White House adviser Miller defended the policy, describing it as a "simple decision".

"You saw the president (say) on camera that he wants this to end", she added.

Pelosi will join members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus in a Monday visit to the Southern California border, where she plans to talk to parents who have been separated from their children.

Earlier in the day, counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway attempted to distance the Trump administration from the rise of migrant children separated from their parents at the Mexican border. But a backlash is mounting, fuelled by reports of children being taken from mothers and distraught toddlers and elementary school age children asking, through tears, when they can see their parents. The Department of Homeland Security said Friday that almost 2,000 children have been placed into shelters over a six-week period.

Immigration is one of the most divisive issues plaguing the Trump administration. "If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you and that child will be separated from you as required by law".

After touring a converted Walmart supermarket that is now housing about 1,500 immigrant children, Merkley said "hurting kids to get legislative leverage is unacceptable". "Melania has very strong opinions of her own on a lot of different subjects, and they often differ from Donald's public stance on issues-but she makes a point of never publicly contradicting him", one source close to Melania explained.

The president himself later tweeted: "The Democrats should get together with their Republican counterparts and work something out on Border Security & Safety".

"Democrats are good at only three things, High Taxes, High Crime and Obstruction", Trump said, using the argument to promote Republican candidates ahead of the November midterms. One woman tried to give her toys and books to calm her down, but even that shelter worker seemed frustrated, Kraft told The Washington Post, because as much as she wanted to console the little girl, she couldn't touch, hold or pick her up to let her know everything would be all right.

"Look six months out from now", he said.

Mrs. Trump didn't refer specifically to the Trump administration's "no tolerance" policy, which was leading to a spike in children being separated from their families.
