Almost 2000 migrant children separated from their families at US-Mexico border

Immigrant Children Separated From Parents 'Well Cared For At Taxpayer Expense,&apos Jeff Sessions Says

But he also repeated the falsehood that Democrats, now in the minority in Congress, are responsible for a law that mandates family separations.

He added, "By they way, if they're calling asylum, they're still going to the - to the detention centers although the (ph) - detention centers are now full".

"As a mother, as a Catholic, as somebody who has got a conscience ..." "Secretary Nielsen recently appeared before the U.S. Senate and testified that immigrant parents and children who present themselves at U.S. ports of entry to request asylum will not be separated".

The Republican-led House of Representatives may vote next week on two immigration measures - a hard-line bill drafted by House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, and a compromise measure that limits legal immigration while also ending the family separations.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced in early May that officials would separate parents and children who are caught illegally crossing the border while prosecuting the parents for a federal misdemeanor.

The new figures are for people who tried to enter the US between official border crossings.

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon bombastically returned to the spotlight and didn't mince any words in his appearance on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday.

US Border Patrol agents speak to suspected immigrants near the US-Mexico border in McAllen, Texas. And Donald Trump is not going to do that, he's just not going to kick the can down the road'. The official tally of separations is now almost 4,000 children, not including March and the beginning of April 2018. He has falsely claimed that Democrats are responsible for the practice. Obama's family detention set the stage for Trump's family separation.

"I'd like to say it's un-American, but it's happening right now in America".

Many celebrities used their platforms to make their disproval of Donald Trump's policy known.

"Maybe we can bring some sense of morality to bear once the Department of Justice realizes that the American people don't want to be represented in this way", Brooks said. Rev. Franklin Graham, who's typically a Trump ally, told Christian Broadcasting Network that it's "disgraceful, it's bad, to see families ripped apart, and I don't support that one bit".

The Trump administration is also arguing that its zero-tolerance policy is a byproduct of a dysfunctional immigration system created by Democrats.

The administration says the changes are necessary to deter immigrants from coming here illegally. The President and members of his administration have responded to the backlash against the new policy by shifting blame to Congress.

Sessions has repeatedly touted the policy and it's necessity in appearance around the country and in interviews. None of those laws or precedents mean that children must be taken away from their parents.

"I hate the children being taken away", he said. The Democrats forced that law upon our nation'. The 1,940 adults accompanying those children are being held for criminal prosecution.

USA border authorities are executing the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy toward undocumented immigrants. "That contradicts everything we know that the kids need to build their health", Kraft said. Democrats are good at only three things, High Taxes, High Crime and Obstruction. "The message is that no one is exempt from immigration law".

"If the Democrats are serious, and if a lot of Republicans are serious, they'll come together".

Department of Homeland Security figures obtained by The Associated Press on Friday showed that 1,995 minors were separated from 1,940 adults between April 19 and May 31.

"These children are thrust into detention centers often without an advocate or an attorney and possibly even without the presence of any adult who can speak their language".
