Yes, we can argue about the law, but why you as a mayor of a city or the Legislature of the state of California would want to say that federal law that calls for the deportation of someone who commits a crime in this country, who is here illegally.

In the midst of the backlash over the actions of the Trump Administration and US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), WikiLeaks compiled and shared over 9,000 ICE employees information online.

Trump repeatedly lamented this "catch and release" policy before his administration began in April criminally prosecuting adult migrants and holding their children separately to deter border crossings. It had no comment on the Los Angeles filing.

Legislation asking Gov. John Bel Edwards to recall Louisiana National Guard troops at the border until families who entered illegally are reunited with their children has fizzled.

Due to the high level of pressure that the Trump administration faced following his policy he made a decision to issue an executive order on Wednesday putting an "end" to the problem.

The House of Representatives was expected to vote on Wednesday on a broad-based immigration bill that would bar the separation of migrant children from their parents and provide $25 billion for a wall that Trump has vowed to build along the U.S. -Mexico border.

Administration officials have been casting about for detention space for migrants, with the Pentagon drawing up plans to hold as many as 20,000 at US military bases.

At the same time, the administration has asked the courts to let it detain families together for an extended period while their immigration cases are resolved.

The warm reception that met Sessions inside the Millennium Biltmore Hotel marked a contrast to the scene outside.

The protesters gathered on the sidewalk to chant and sing around lunchtime.

The first lady also saw the photos from the border and heard the recordings of children being separated from their families.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions accused the Trump administration's critics on immigration of being radicals and hypocrites as he railed against his opponents in pointed remarks on Tuesday. However, Trump's Zero-Tolerance policy remains in tact despite the fact that he will no longer be separating families. "We've got to get the children connected to their parents", Waters said. A conservative-backed bill failed to pass the House last week. After that, children must be placed in HHS care.

He continued: "They like a little security around themselves".
