Recording of Children Crying Adds to Anger over US Policy

  • Melania Trump ‘hates’ separating migrant kids from parents

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced in April that the administration would take a "zero tolerance" approach to illegal immigration, directing all USA attorneys who serve in districts along the United States' southern border with Mexico to criminally prosecute all cases of attempted illegal entry or illegal entry that are referred by DHS.

It would apply to all past and future cases of family detention, so children already separated from their parents could be reunited.

The family separations and detentions of children at the southern US border, highlighted by the videos of youngsters in cages and an audiotape of wailing children, have sparked an outcry at home and strong condemnation overseas.

He used the word "infest" to describe migrants coming to the U.S. illegally.

The decree does not mandate separation of parents and children, however.

He instead wanted a bill that would guarantee funding to build his border wall, he told the National Federation of Independent Business.

Mr. Trump also touched on a number of topics other than immigration, including his recent summit with Kim Jong Un of North Korea. He said it was "the only solution to the border crisis". "We have no wall". The state has about 400 service members on the border, helping support border security while not actively enforcing immigration law.

Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Republican leader, said Senate Republicans are working on language to address the family separations that could receive a floor vote, potentially as part of a spending bill package.

"No. He did say he supported 'the bill.' He just doesn't - he's not specific, you know, he does things his own way", retiring Rep. Ryan Costello (R-PA) said with a laugh when TPM asked if he'd explicitly endorsed the compromise bill hammered out by House GOP moderates and conservatives.

Why are families being separated at the border?

To protest Trump's policy of breaking up families when they are detained, Republican Governor Larry Hogan of Maryland withdrew the state's small National Guard contingent from the border, where it had been assisting federal agents. They are not permitted to be jailed together since the minors are not charged with the crime.

GOP senators including Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Jeff Flake of Arizona and Susan Collins of ME also said they've been discussing family separation legislation. And this is the case in this situation, which means that, if you commit a crime, meaning you cross the border illegally, not through these ports of entry, you will be prosecuted.

The images that have sparked widespread condemnation, of children in wire cages, are of a border patrol processing centre in McAllen, Texas.

What are the immigration bills before Congress?

Trump counselled that America must always arrest people coming into the country illegally; noting that, "Of the 12,000 children, 10,000 are being sent by their parents on a very unsafe trip, and only 2,000 are with their parents, many of whom have tried to enter our country illegally on numerous occasions".

The policy directs border officials to refer for prosecution all immigrants apprehended while crossing the U.S. -Mexico border illegally.

Since current law does not allow children to be held in detention facilities indefinitely, President Donald Trump's administration separates the children from their parents in order to detain the parents.

But Trump himself put that bill in doubt.

Now, most Republican lawmakers and candidates are either in thrall or in fear of Trump, enabling his autocratic, churlish, morally flabby policies, his immaturity, his ignorance, his dishonesty, his naivete, his venality, his coziness with the world's cruelest dictators and so on.

That left members grasping for a happy message of unity afterwards - especially since Trump has been known to change his mind and publicly attack congressional Republicans over legislation.

Ultimately, she condemned the separations.
