Trump defends administration immigration policy

US lawmakers want to end ‘evil’ migrant family separations

As a result of the administration's new policy, these so-called shelters are also increasingly housing children who crossed the border with their parents and were subsequently separated from them.

Current and former officials told the Times this discord over the policy is coursing through the administration, despite top officials like Sessions and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly taking hard stances.

Reporters and Democratic politician were on Monday allowed inside the Texas detention centre at the centre of the controversy.

"If you cross this border unlawfully, then we will prosecute you".

"One cage had 20 children inside". The images show them using foil sheets as blankets and sleeping on mats on the floor.

He did continue to say that while he doesn't "want the children to be taken away from [their] parents", it is a necessity if the United States wants to charge the parents separately.

The teenager said she had to show others in her cell how to change the girl's nappy. He placed partial blame for the separation issue on Sessions. Democrats are good at only three things, High, High Crime and Obstruction.

A fundraising campaign will direct donations to seven groups, including the American Civil Liberties Union, the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services and Los Angeles-based Al Otro Lado. "Not on my watch". Jeff Flake sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar expressing concern and asking several questions about the asylum process and separations.

Finally, Kawhi Leonard has told the San Antonio Spurs that he wants out of San Antonio and would prefer to go to the Lakers. ESPN and Yahoo both reported Leonard's desire to move on from San Antonio on Friday, citing league sources .

The separation policy follows Attorney General Jeff Sessions' announcement on April 6 of a "zero-tolerance" immigration policy that includes criminally prosecuting illegal border-crossers, thus separating them from children who under US law can not be held in criminal detention centers.

"We saw the fear in the eyes of these children who are wondering when they will see their parent ever again".

House Speaker Paul Ryan plans to bring up two competing Republican immigration bills this week - and neither seems likely to pass.

"If we build the wall, if we pass legislation to end the lawlessness, we won't face these awful choices". In a series of tweets, he said that children were being used "by the worst criminals on earth" to get into the US. It won't be. You look at what's happening in Europe; you look at what's happening in other places. That message has been repeatedly delivered by Republicans and Democrats alike, including former First Lady Laura Bush.

"I live in a border state".

Trump has sought to blame Democrats for the family separations, but Pelosi says the "blame for every mistreated child, heartbroken mother and father and broken family rests squarely on the President, and only he can end the trauma". "What has changed is that we no longer exempt entire classes of people who break the law", she said. She compared the separation of the children to the internment camps for Japanese-Americans in World War II.

Her spokeswoman said Mrs Trump believes "we need to be a country that follows all laws", but also one "that governs with heart".

Melania Trump released a statement on Sunday saying she "hates to see" children separated from their families.
