On May 16, Senator Kamala Harris criticised the "immoral" policy of "separating parents from their children", in response to which Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen insisted that "anyone who breaks the law will be prosecuted", and that their children would, naturally, "go to HHS for care and custody".

Amid growing outrage over the Trump administration's policy of separating children from their parents when families arrive at the border, many are asking how the administration can be so cruel as to literally tear children from their mothers' arms.
Trump's fixation is driven, in part, by a view that border security is paramount to his most fervent supporters and that immigration is a winning issue for Republican candidates in November's congressional elections.
The ACLU says the rally is meant to "raise voices against key actors who are carrying out Trump's family separation order: ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and U.S. Attorneys". In fact, they are kids who are enmeshed in a federal system that has long had to deal with the children of immigrants. Sponsors are often parents or close family members, but potential sponsors (including parents) will now be required to undergo fingerprint screening while information about their immigration status is shared with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
A New York Times report and a USA Todayreport both had to issue corrections after they claimed that the Trump administration had "lost track" of almost 1,500 unaccompanied minors who had crossed the southern border and been resettled across the country.
"In 2014, we saw an enormous spike compared to what usually happens every year, in the number of kids crossing alone into the United States", she said.

How or why the story resurfaced on social media four years after it was published was unclear.
Ahead of the protests, NBC News reports that on Thursday, attorneys and advocacy groups filed an emergency request (pdf) with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights-which is part of the Organization of American States (OAS)-demanding the reunification of a group of parents and children separated at the Southern border, and that the USA government provide therapy services "for the trauma caused by the forcible separations". "Bipartisan Bill!" Trump commented on Tuesday. Republican leadership has consistently told conservatives pushing the bill that it would not have almost enough Republican votes to pass.
The news first broke in late April during Senate testimony by an official of the Department of Health and Human Services.
"We do place kids with families that are themselves here illegally", he said, "so you could imagine that many of those would not choose to speak to a federal official calling them on the phone".
An official from the Health and Human Services Department told a congressional hearing last month that his department placed follow-up phone calls from October to December to US households that were sponsoring the minors after they came to the border without their parents. It has also been argued that some sponsors, possibly relatives, may be blocking attempts to reach the children.
