'Nobody likes' separating kids from parents at the border, Conway says

A top White House adviser on Sunday distanced the Trump administration from responsibility for separating migrant children from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border, even though the administration put in place and could easily end a policy that has led to a spike in cases of split and distraught families.

U.S. attorney general Jeff Sessions has defended the policy by quoting from the Bible, and argued that the recent criticisms were not "fair or logical and some are contrary to law". "I think it's incumbent upon our elected officials to monitor this and I feel confident that once people see it and see how people are being held in virtual cages, that will stop this immoral practice". It was focused on freeing and otherwise helping children who come to the border without a parent or guardian. "I'd like to say it's un-American, but it's happening right now in America".

"While the bill contains some positive provisions, including full funding for the border wall and closing loopholes in current law that sustain illegal border surges, it is still a mass amnesty", said RJ Hauman, of the conservative Federation for American Immigration Reform.

Phil Mickelson insisted he did not disrespect the sport of golf or the US Open after he putted a moving ball in the third round. Mickelson was penalized two strokes for hitting a moving ball and made a 10 on the hole, on his way to a third-round 81.

Bannon was seemingly correct, however, in his assertion that the Trump administration is not looking to back away from its "zero-tolerance" immigration policy as senior White House counselor Kellyanne Conway also weighed in and defended the policy.

"It's hard for me to enjoy Father's Day knowing what's happening to other children and families", he said. "They want them to be left alone", he said. These include "four pillars" the administration wants: guaranteed funding of $25 billion for a wall along the Mexican border; ending the Diversity Visa Program that now offers admission by lottery to 55,000 immigrants each year; and an end to the system of family-based immigration that distributes visas to the spouses, children and siblings of US citizens. Even after Kelly stopped talking publicly about family separation, the Department of Homeland Security quietly tested the approach last summer in certain areas in Texas. -Mexico border on June 12, 2018 in McAllen, Texas. And we doubt Trump's base plans to do the low-wage, high-value jobs many immigrants take on.

The push toward immigration votes in the House is intensifying the divide among Republicans on one of the party's most animating issues and fueling concerns that a voter backlash could cost the GOP control of the House in November. "It was a simple decision by the administration to have a zero-tolerance policy for illegal entry, period". Miller and Marc Short, the White House director of legislative affairs, have argued that immigration legislation is unlikely to pass this summer, officials said.

"As a mother, as a Catholic, as somebody who has got a conscience ..." Because the government is charging the parents in the criminal justice system, children are separated from them, without a clear procedure for their reunification aside from hotlines the parents can call to try to track their children down. It passed unanimously in Congress and was signed by Republican President George W. Bush.

Democrats have refused to consent to the border wall or restrictions to legal immigration Trump has demanded, and instead hope to block family separations with standalone legislation.

While Trump has transparent contempt for his Attorney General because he recused himself from the Russian Federation probe and put the President in jeopardy, the White House backed Sessions' invocation of religion for the immigration measures.
