'Quit separating the kids!' Trump faces Democratic rage on immigration

Donald Trump says he will not let US become 'migrant camp' Children Separated From Parents At Us Border Sob, Wail Desperately

Schmidt said his decision was a direct result of the administration's policy of separating children from parents who illegally cross the border.

While top officials have also stood by Trump's "zero tolerance" approach, insisting children are being held in humane conditions, criticism has swelled from worldwide rights groups, Christian evangelicals, former United States first ladies and the president's own Republican Party.

Governors across the U.S. are now queuing up to say that they will not support the separations, with New York, Colorado and MA saying they will not provide troops to help secure the border - and Maryland recalling its soldiers.

It also means that unless Mr. Trump blinks, there's little chance of relief for the almost 70 children who are being separated each day.

"We have a House that is getting ready to finalize an immigration package that they're going to brief me on later, and then I'm going to make changes to it", Trump said, without providing details about what he plans to change. Do you go with the President and hope it doesn't matter?

House Republicans scrambled to update their approach ahead of a visit from President Trump to discuss a broader immigration overhaul that is to be voted on this week.

The president went to the U.S. Capitol Tuesday evening to speak with the Republican Party conference of the House of Representatives. Liberal critics say the Trump administration is simply institutionalizing racism and bigotry under the excuse of implanting law.

"We want to end the border crisis by finally giving us the legal authorities and the resources to detain and remove illegal immigrant families altogether", Trump said Tuesday, "and bring them back to their country". "I think the language is changing on that". "But to those who are especially vulnerable - young people and families - there are other measures that can be taken that, of course, enforce the law but are not so excessively harsh as to violate a principle so fundamental as young children being in detention for long periods of time".

The reality is, you don't need to look very far to see which way the wind is blowing on this issue.

The ceasefire was Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti's brainchild, though it had met stiff opposition from the state BJP. She said that she was not surprised over the pull out decision of BJP."We didn't do this alliance for power".


Earlier in the day, a defiant Trump sounded unfazed by the mounting pressure to alleviate the situation before it ruptures into a public relations disaster for his party.

He blamed "fake news" reports on children being put into detention camps, adding: 'I don't want children taken away from parents. The justice department is said to be drafting an executive order that will end the family separations, confirming the widely held belief that the odious practice could be terminated with a stroke of a presidential pen instead of subjecting it to partisan politics and a tortured legislative process.

The division within the White House was made most clear by a statement from First Lady Melania Trump which simultaneously decried the policy and deflected blame for it.

The United Nations has slammed the separation practice as unconscionable, while Amnesty International blasted it as "nothing short of torture". Mexico's foreign minister condemned it as "cruel and inhuman".

McConnell and Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, did indicate they supported how House Republicans were looking to fix the issue. I say it as someone who retains belief in DEMOCRACY and decency.

Manuel Padilla, the area's Border Patrol chief, said, "When you exempt a group of people from the law.that creates a draw". It came as the Trump Administration doubled down this week on its "zero-tolerance" policy for illegal border crossers, arresting parents and taking more than 2,300 children to shelters over a recent six-week stretch. Editorialists at the Wall Street Journal think so, but no USA jail that we know of allows children to stay with their parents behind bars.

Separated children make up a minority of immigrant minors in U.S. custody.

The ICE standards include mandates on care for detainees, including mental health care, nutritional foods, clean bedding, linens, blankets and towels, translation services, allowing for correspondence with family members and legal counsel.

The majority crossed the border without their parents. The family border policies were set by his administration.
