Attorneys General to Trump: Stop Separating Migrant Families

Attorneys General to Trump: Stop Separating Migrant Families

"We cannot and will not encourage people to bring their children or other children to the country unlawfully by giving them immunity".

Parscale's public cry to fire Sessions, who Trump has repeatedly and publicly blasted for recusing himself from the Russian Federation investigation, followed the president's pointing to the IG report as proof top FBI and Justice Department officials were biased against his campaign in favor of Clinton's. The Obama administration also detained illegal immigrants at the border, but would detain parents and children together.

The Trump administration has chose to criminally prosecute any adult caught crossing the border illegally, as opposed to referring those with children mainly to immigration courts, as previous administrations did. The quality of the shelters has come under criticism, but Nielsen insisted Monday that children were being "well taken care of". Fox News' Laura Ingraham asked Sessions, before referencing the mounting outcry from Democrats and former first ladies over the zero-tolerance policy.

Sessions went on to admit that the point of the new policy was to deter further illegal immigration. "Congressional Republicans need to get off their hands and act on comprehensive reform and more immediately, stop this cruel policy of separation". "I hate it. I hate to see separation of parents and children".

"If you don't like families being separated, you can tell [the Department of Homeland Security] to stop doing it", Graham said.

The letter said the policy had "produced a tragic and unsustainable result". According to the same article, the Trump administration claims that number wouldn't increase because children will eventually be reunited with their families. "It is imperative that we reintroduce humanity and compassion back into our immigration system". If that can't be arranged, then the children are placed in the temporary custody of the relevant child welfare agency and, while they may temporarily be housed in a facility for children that, while less than ideal, are certainly better than the facilities these immigrant children are being housed in. Nielsen said Thursday that as many as 10,000 of those children were sent alone by their parents.

"Policies that separate a child from his or her parent absent that level of inquiry, would not only be illegal under most state laws, but also may be contrary to the policy views of state legislatures and their constituents across this country", the letter reads.

A child entering the USA with an asylum-seeker is granted the same status as the adult. There is, simply put, no justification for the way in which these parents and children are being treated, and no justification for allowing this policy to continue for a single day.
