UN Calls On US To Stop Separating Migrant Families Immediately

UN calls on Trump to ‘immediately halt’ policy on separating migrant families at border UN says US must stop separating migrant children from parents

President Trump is falsely claiming that "bad legislation passed by the Democrats" has forced his administration to separate children from their families at the border, even though no such law exists. "The child's best interest should always come first, including over migration management objectives or other administrative concerns".

In a tweet on Tuesday, Trump blamed the Democrats for families that have to separate at the U.S. -Mexico border.

The Trump administration will soon begin fingerprinting parents claiming custody of children who entered the United States illegally without an adult relative, officials said a week ago, prompting criticism that children may be abandoned by those who fear being identified and deported.

Ravina Shamdasani, a spokesperson for the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, said in a statement on Tuesday that the office is "deeply concerned" by the USA government's decision to separate migrant families, arguing that the policy "amounts to arbitrary and unlawful interference in family life, and is a serious violation of the rights of the child". Shamdasani said the practice was a "serious violation" of the rights of children.

He said the majority of children coming illegally to the United States are teenagers, not infants. "They should never do that", he told the Hugh Hewitt Show. "Started the Wall", he added, referring to the building of a fence meant to halt illegal crossings into the United States which he made a key campaign pledge.

"Border security laws should be changed but the Dem (ocrat) s cant get their act together".

Sessions announced early last month that there would be a zero tolerance policy, with all those without papers crossing into the USA charged with illegal entry before they could submit a request for political asylum.

"The majority of people arriving at the U.S.'s southern border have fled Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador-in many cases either because of rampant insecurity and violence, or because of violations of a range of other rights, such as health, education, and housing", she noted. "We will remain a generous country, but we are also a sovereign country, with laws that decide how best to control our borders and protect our people".

"Our position is that preserving family unity is a fundamental tenet of refugee protection", United Nations refugee agency spokesman William Spindler said.
