Melania Trump speaks out against child migrant camps

Melania Trump speaks out against child migrant camps

The Department of Homeland Security said last week that almost 2,000 immigrant children had been separated from their parents over a span of six weeks after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the new "zero tolerance" policy. "This administration did not create a policy of separating families at the border", she said, adding that adults are investigated at the border for links to human trafficking and to see if they are biologically related to the children they are accompanying.

Nielsen said that for those seeking asylum at ports of entry, the Trump administration has "continued the policy from previous administrations".

In a statement issued by her office, the first lady expressed empathy for affected families, saying the country should be governed "with a heart", but did not directly take issue with President Donald Trump's policy. Bernie Sanders to former First Lady Laura Bush to House Speaker Paul Ryan. "It breaks my heart".

The separation of immigrant parents and their children at US' southern border has turned into a topic of intense debate in recent days, with even First Lady Melania Trump commenting against it. None of those laws or precedents mean that children must be taken away from their parents. In Texas, several Democratic members of Congress said at a news conference that they had toured one USA detention center and encountered children under the age of one who they were told had been in government custody for more than a month. We need borders. We need security. "I visited the detention centers myself". Trump said in a morning post on Twitter.

He said that fake claims of fear are a major problem within the asylum system and that immigration lawyers have been helping immigrants game the system. He also tweeted in all caps, "CHANGE THE LAWS!"

Carter led a delegation to Thailand in 1979 for a firsthand look at the plight of Cambodian and Laotian refugees, recalling today the "trauma of parents and children separated by circumstances beyond their control".

Bailiff said the inmate was being taken across the street from the jail, to the services building, for a court hearing. Investigators will be reviewing surveillance video , according to Kansas City Police Department spokesman Zac Blair.

In a rare comment, Mrs Trump spoke against the Trump administration's harsh policy, saying the U.S. needs to be "a country that governs with heart".

A "zero tolerance" policy from Attorney General Jeff Sessions mandates all border-crossers be treated as criminals.

"If the Democrats would sit down instead of obstructing, we could have something done very quickly".

At a conference Monday morning, Nielsen doubled down and said her department is just "enforcing the laws passed by Congress" and would "not apologize for doing our job". "I'd like to say it's un-American, but it's happening right now in America".

The sparring at the highest levels came amid growing concern, dismay, and criticism across the country over the way immigration laws are being enforced by the Trump administration, with wrenching pictures of children separated from their parents and caged in warehouses.
