Trump justifies separation of children from migrant parents

Well, Mitch McConnell says every Republican member of the Senate supports legislation to fix a law that separates children from parents attempting to cross into the United States illegally.

A defiant US President Donald Trump doubled down Tuesday on his administration's controversial policy that leads to separating migrant children from their parents, as he prepared to face congressional Republicans alarmed by an intensifying crisis on America's southern border. Of about 2,000 children separated from parents in the past six weeks about 100 are under the age of 4 years.

The Trump administration has defended the policy of mandatory arrests of all people crossing the border illegally, which prompts separation of children from their parents as their case awaits adjudication.

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. However, Stephen Miller, Trump's senior policy adviser, liked the idea and never gave up on getting it into practice. A reporter played the audio of children screaming after being separated from their parents-which had no visible effect on these monsters. "What's happening is so sad - is so sad", he said. "As a mother, as a Catholic, as somebody who has got a conscience ..." The President and his team stonily defended their stand and blamed Democrats for the situation, even as the administration, in an ironic twist, withdrew the United States from the UN Human Rights Council for unrelated reasons, denouncing it as a "cesspool of political bias". In an impromptu interview with Fox News on Friday, he temporarily torpedoed a Republican immigration compromise when he casually dismissed it as too moderate. He joined a growing number of conservatives who are turning away from the Trump administration over the US' immigration policy shift.

While at least nine other governors have curtailed their guards' involvement in the border mission, Brown has taken no move to follow suit.

But Trump touched on many topics during the meeting, including his historic meeting with the North Korean Kim Jong Un.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte R-Va., chairman of the Judiciary Committee, is reworking the family separation provision in the compromise bill, a GOP aide said Tuesday.

A wide-ranging coalition is firing back, with human-rights advocates, state attorneys-general, lawmakers from both parties, former first ladies and business groups all demanding Mr. Trump stop separating families. According toCNN, the eldest Trump daughter met with the President to discuss the heart-wrenching images of immigrant children separated from their families that have been weaving their way across the web.

He said reunification relies on individual government officials who go above and beyond their duties to help the families reunite or a lawyer from a non-governmental legal organization doing that work.

But after signaling Monday that it would oppose any fix aimed exclusively at addressing that issue, the White House said Tuesday it was reviewing the emergency legislation being introduced by Cruz to keep migrant families together.

"Democrats are the problem", Trump tweeted Tuesday morning. They're not black and white on these issues. Polls have consistently shown that a large majority of Americans support allowing undocumented immigrants brought as children - the so-called Dreamers - to avoid deportation and eventually apply for citizenship. They're considering several bills, but the strings attached, as always, will be what determines if they pass. Hard-liners and the Trump administration want to see what they can get on the president's other immigration priorities. It's not clear yet how the fight over the family separation policy will end differently.
