Unapologetic Trump digs in on immigration despite outrage

Unapologetic Trump digs in on immigration despite outrage

Almost 2000 immigrants were separated from their parents in the last six weeks in April and May, according to Homeland Security. "That's traumatising to the children who are innocent victims, and it is contrary to our values in this country".

Hillary Clinton also shared Bush's article and said there is no law to support the policy, tweeting that the situation is a "humanitarian crisis" and that parents should be "outraged".

"Congress and the courts created this problem, and Congress alone can fix it", she said.

Laura Bush is sick of Donald Trump's abuse of power, and now has support from both sides of the aisle, including fellow former First Lady Michelle Obama.

Former First Lady Laura Bush has weighed in on the Trump administration policy of separating immigrant children from their parents, calling the practice "immoral". Previously, adults who entered the United States with children were mostly referred to immigration courts.

Even as images of children held in chain-link pens and audio of toddlers crying in detention facilities were broadcast Monday, the Trump Administration remained unapologetic, doubling down on its policy of separating parents and children apprehended at the border.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, a Trump appointee, told reporters at a White House briefing that the administration was only strictly enforcing the law.

In a blog written on The Washington Post, Laura Bush who served as the First Lady of the U.S. from 2001 to 2009 termed the policy "cruel", "immoral" and "heartbreaking". Previous administrations looked at the same law, though, and decided not to separate families.

Trump, who has made a tough stance on immigration a major goal of his presidency, responded sharply to critics on Monday.

Some 2,000 children were separated from their families between mid-April and the end of May after the Trump administration announced a new "zero-tolerance" policy and the referral of all illegal entry cases for criminal prosecution.

Attorneys at the hearings said the immigrants had brought two dozen boys and girls with them to the USA, and the judge replied that he didn't know what would happen to their children.

Trump on the other hand is pretty clear that the shining city is not opening its doors in the grand tradition of Christian charity.

"I live in a border state". But that means parents who travel with children are getting jailed, and since jails can't handle families, the children are taken and put into government-run dorms.

Steve Bannon argued that effort risked alienating Mr Trump's political base and contributing to election losses in November, when Republicans hope to preserve their congressional majorities.

"You're not going to see a majority make a policy that's clearly adverse to the president", Jolly said.

One would limit, but not entirely prohibit, family separations, fund Trump's wall and give legal protections to young immigrants, known as "Dreamers", who were brought to the country illegally as children.

The House proposals face broad opposition from Democrats, and even if a bill does pass, the closely divided Senate seems unlikely to go along.

Criticism of the president has come from a range of lawmakers, including Republicans in Congress. GOP Sen. Susan Collins also expressed concern.
