Conway Says 'nobody Likes' Family Separation Policy

Conway Says 'nobody Likes' Family Separation Policy

I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our global boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. We believe it should be addressed in immigration legislation.

She says that Mrs. Trump "hates to see children separated from their families" and hopes "both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform".

Trump continued to cast blame on Democrats Monday, tweeting: "Why don't the Democrats give us the votes to fix the world's worst immigration laws?"

"You have many people in the Trump administration denying that they're using this as some sort of political leverage", NPR's Scott Detrow reports. "And so, why we would even think that this is a tool that is needed to defend our borders is insane to me".

Democrats and some Republicans have in recent days visited facilities used to house separated family members, leading to new questions about the process and growing calls for the so-called zero tolerance immigration enforcement policy to end. "It is immoral. And it breaks my heart", she wrote in a guest column for the Washington Post on Sunday.

She attributed the situation entirely to the administration. "We ran on a policy - very simply - stop mass illegal immigration and limit legal immigration, get our sovereignty back to help our workers, and so he went to a zero tolerance policy", Bannon said.

Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly of NY said he is ready to co-sponsor legislation on Sunday to end the practice.

Republicans in Congress and the administration have pointed to a 1997 court settlement regarding the treatment of immigrant children in federal custody for legal justification of the Attorney-General's new policy. "And it is contrary to our values in this country".

This is a document provided on June 17, 2018, that is given to immigrants who are arrested and separated from their children at the US-Mexico border.

Mrs Trump's statement comes as Democratic lawmakers joined hundreds of protesters outside an immigration detention facility in New Jersey for a Father's Day demonstration. Hillary Clinton retweeted that message, adding, "YES!" She tweeted on Sunday that the DHS doesn't "have a policy of separating families at the border".

The Trump administration argued it's trying to deter future illegal border crossings. Senators Susan Collins and Jeff Flake wrote to White House officials on Saturday seeking more information on the policy.

Trump has confused his allies in the House with conflicting signals about his preferences.

However, he said the issue was a "bipartisan problem", saying "what's happening right now is the President is pointing at the Democrats ... and the Democrats are pointing at the President, the administration ... there's culpability on all sides here".

"I hate the children being taken away", Trump said Friday morning.

But it's not the Democrats' law.

President Trump campaigned on a platform to cut off the flow of immigrants entering the USA through Mexico and repeatedly characterised those coming through as potential rapists and criminals.

Hurd also called for "more focus on addressing the root causes in Central America", on "alternatives to detention". We also know that this treatment inflicts trauma; interned Japanese have been two times as likely to suffer cardiovascular disease or die prematurely than those who were not interned. "That is a lie".

"Nobody likes" breaking up families and "seeing babies ripped from their mothers' arms", said presidential counsellor Kellyanne Conway. "You saw the president on camera that he wants this to end, but everybody has, Congress has to act".
