Trump continues to blame Democrats for breaking up families at the border

Democrats are being forced to get creative in protesting the Trump Administration's new "zero tolerance" stance toward immigration, as they are outnumbered legislatively in the House.

No federal law requires family separation. Democratic candidates running for vulnerable Republican seats also have begun to make the harsh treatment of children a centerpiece of their campaigns. You know: The American Dream!' Jim Carrey also criticized the inhuman policy. The bill, co-written with U.S. Sen.

White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: "The separation of alien families is the product of the same legal loopholes that Democrats refuse to close, and these laws are the same that have been on the books for over a decade".

Acosta expressed outraged at the Trump administration's policy of separating families at the border. The figure is the only one released by the goverment. "The thinking in the building is to force people to the table".

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". 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". Most have been teenagers who've come by themselves, but now, more young children are coming with their parents. Republicans control both houses of Congress.

Whereas angered protesters rallied at airports after Trump's first iteration of the Muslim-majority country travel ban, and internet users submitted public comments to the FCC supporting net neutrality, impeding the separation of families and holding the door open for vulnerable asylum-seeking immigrants feels far less actionable.

While Trump has transparent contempt for his Attorney General because he recused himself from the Russian Federation probe and put the President in jeopardy, the White House backed Sessions' invocation of religion for the immigration measures. With co-ordination between the different agencies poor, some parents are said to have been deported before they could find out where their offspring were being held. 'If he can't [acknowledge] that, I'll go tell him 'if you don't like families being supported, you can tell DHS to stop doing it'. "It's a crime to come across illegally and children get separated". "They never expected the bill to pass".

House Republicans plan to vote next week on a pair of immigration bills, including one that would end the controversial practice of separating children from their mothers and fathers.

In April, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a new "zero tolerance" policy for migrants detained while crossing the border between ports of entry. It passed unanimously in Congress and was signed by Republican President George W. Bush.

The biblical underpinnings have been challenged by religious leaders.

"They want them taken care of".

Under US rules, immigrant children travelling alone or separated from relatives can be held by authorities and the Trump administration has backed family separations, including in asylum cases, as part of efforts to deter illegal immigration. The cumulative effect is a dramatic adjustment of immigration policy and practice. Civil liberties activists say the allegation is false and the Trump administration is using it as an excuse to enforce provisions that if done in any other country would have raised a stink about human rights abuses.

Others have argued that the main benefit of the policy is deterrence.

"For the very act of asking for mercy, we rip their children out of their arms and put them in detention centers".
