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?

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