Trump calls on Congress to fix 'insane' immigration laws

‘Families Belong Together' Rally: Thousands protest family separations at border across country US rallies held against immigration policies

For weeks we have seen the irreparable and inhumane harm that Trump officials inflicted by implementing the transparently anti-family values policy of separating children (and even babies) from their undocumented migrating parents at the USA southern border.

"Congress must pass smart, fast and reasonable Immigration Laws now", Trump said in a string of Twitter comments. Democrats have hammered the Trump administration over the practice of separating families caught crossing the border illegally, as a result of "zero-tolerance" policies.

"The president called for laws that would tell immigrants entering the USA illegally to get "'OUT, ' and they must leave, just as they would if they were standing on your front lawn".

The protests over the weekend saw hundreds of thousands of people take to the streets in solidarity with the over 2,000 children that have been forcibly separated from their parents who crossed the United States border.

"Congress - FIX OUR INSANE IMMIGRATION LAWS NOW!"

This is not the first time Trump has suggested stripping immigrants of their due process rights. It is estimated more than 100 children in the area have been separated from their parents, AP reported. Immigration rights advocates say forcing parents to choose immediately between leaving the country with or without their children means they are effectively prevented from asking for asylum.

This past weekend, Americans organized the "Families Belong Together" March, in an effort to come together and voice the immorality of the immigration policy's repercussions to the White House.

On the question of whether individuals with asylum claims are being presented with the deportation form, Pérez told TPM, noting that he wanted to protect attorney-client privilege, "Many of those who were deported could have had a really good chance or opportunity to pass a credible fear interview, and start taking asylum".

However, Azar warned that entire families may remain in the custody of immigration authorities for extended periods, even those who are claiming asylum. Protestors took to the streets of cities all across the nation, with hundreds of organized events that expressed anger over the Trump policy.
