Today in Trump's Prison Camps for Children: White House Ignores Their Cries

20 June 2018

A federal judge in San Diego this month allowed the suit to go forward, writing that the separation "arbitrarily tears at the sacred bond between parent and child" and appears to violate a "constitutional right to family integrity".

The US action has sparked outrage at home from both Trump's Democratic foes and his fellow Republicans and around the world, as well as concerns from even First Lady Melania Trump.

The policy directs border officials to refer for prosecution all immigrants apprehended while crossing the U.S. -Mexico border illegally. And it's uncertain if Trump's support will be enough to push any legislation through the divided GOP majority.

Heeding the echo chamber of criticism against the DHS family separation policy, Sen.

"T$3 his implementation of the court decision that says children need to be separated from their parents because their parent is being prosecuted - that has never happened before in the past from the time that this settlement took place through other administrations, both Democratic and Republican administrations", Meissner said.

House Democrats, including Zoe Lofgren of San Jose and Jimmy Panetta from Monterey, introduced a "Keep Families Together Act" to end family separations at the border.

House GOP leaders are revising their legislation amid a public outcry over the administration's "zero tolerance" approach to illegal crossings. Immigration is a critical issue across the West, not just in the USA, as Angela Merkel and Theresa May can attest.

Moments later, however, a handball from Samuel Umtiti on a cross into France's area conceded a penalty in Australia's favour. Pogba popped up late in the match in Kazan , managing to get a shot off following a tidy piece of link-up play.

US immigration officials say 2,342 children were separated from 2,206 parents from 5 May to 9 June amid a "zero-tolerance" crackdown on illegal immigration brought in by US Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

'Now is the best opportunity ever for Congress to change the ridiculous and obsolete laws on immigration. Numerous children separated from their families have been held in detention centers.

The Department of Health and Human Services said there are now 11,700 children under its care in 100 shelters across 17 states.

There are 100 sites scattered across 17 states.

The House is already embroiled in an election-year struggle over immigration legislation that threatens to hurt Republicans in November.

To address the rise of families being separated at the border, the measure proposes keeping children in detention with their parents, undoing 2-decade-old rules that limit the time minors can be held in custody.

"There is complete chaos", said Lee Gelernt, an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lawyer whose organisation is suing to force the government to promptly return children to parents.

The immigration bills that are expected to come to the floor this week are compromises in the sense that they're trying to bring together the disparate GOP caucus: a more moderate version is from House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), while a more conservative version is from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.). One legislative solution, proposed by Texas senator Ted Cruz, is to order families be kept together, with new detention facilities built for that goal.

"We have a House that is getting ready to finalize an immigration package that they're going to brief me on later, and then I'm going to make changes to it", Trump said, without providing details about what he plans to change.

"While cases are pending, families should stay together", tweeted Senator Cruz, who is in an unexpectedly tough re-election battle.

"The only way to guarantee on an issue this complicated that we get a fix is for it to be a narrow solution, targeted to this particular problem", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, said on Tuesday.

Mr Trump has declared the U.S. "will not be a migrant camp" on his watch, saying on Monday: "I say it's very strongly the Democrats' fault".

"There's no need for legislation".

"Mr. President, don't you have kids?" Trump said his daughter, Ivanka, had told him the situation with the families looks bad, one lawmaker said.
