H. Clinton: Separating families at border a 'moral crisis'

  • Trump Again Falsely Blames Democrats for His Separation Policy

Asked whether the president was willing to end the child separation policy, she said: "The president is ready to get meaningful immigration reform across the board".

"The test of any nation is how we treat the most vulnerable among us", Clinton said at an event in NY.

Mr Trump's comments come as German Chancellor Angela Merkel faces a row over immigration that threatens to scupper her three-month-old coalition Government.

About 2,000 children have been separated from their parents or guardians over six weeks, according to USA authorities, since the Trump administration announced that all migrants illegally crossing the Mexican border would be arrested, regardless of whether the adults were seeking asylum.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson - who is seeking to retain his Senate seat - has co-sponsored a bill that would prohibit the practice of separating children exclusively as a deterrence to prevent people from migrating to the United States.

Media reports say while the adults are charged and detained, the children travelling with them are separated and classed as unaccompanied minors.

Footage of the crash showed four bodies on the ground, the charred Chevrolet and several Border Patrol vehicles at the scene. Boyd told WOAI a wall needs to be build because illegal immigration is "a real problem" in the area.

Since April, the Department of Homeland Security has separated about 2,000 children from their parents at the border.

Gidley added that Democrats believe illegal immigrants should be released from detention "without any ramification".

Gidley argued Monday on "Fox & Friends" that the law in place calls for the parents to be deported but the child to stay in a border shelter. Instead, by saying that "both sides" needed to agree, she adopted his argument that the situation was caused by political stalemate rather than a policy he initiated.

"I say it's very strongly the Democrats fault." he said.

"This zero-tolerance policy is cruel". And it breaks my heart. "It is immoral. And it breaks my heart", Bush wrote, adding the images were "eerily reminiscent of the Japanese American internment camps of World War II, now considered to have been one of the most shameful episodes in US history".

Even first lady Melania Trump, who has not entered policy debates, voiced her opinion on the emotional issue.

"Congress passed the law that it is a crime to enter this country illegally".

The signs of splintering GOP support are spreading.

Bush - who challenged Trump in the GOP primary in 2016 - called on Trump to "end this heartless policy".

Though the practice of treating all people who cross the border unlawfully as subject to criminal prosecution is new under the Trump administration, it is built on existing policies from the Bush and Obama administrations.

Former First Lady Laura Bush said coming from Texas, she understands the need for border protection. Sessions openly admitted when announcing the policy that children would be ripped away from their parents. "That's traumatising to the children who are innocent victims, and it is contrary to our values in this country". "In 2018, can we not as a nation find a kinder, more compassionate and more moral answer to this current crisis?" He urged the Democrats to come to the table for resolving this issue rather than playing politics.
