First lady Melania Trump "hates" to see families separated

  • New US immigration policy separates children from families

As a result, the children - who are not charged with a crime - are separated from the adults in their families.

Critics have argued that families are being separated because of the Trump administration's decision to criminally prosecute all those who enter the us illegally, leaving any children they brought with them as unaccompanied minors. "The Democrats have to change their law - that's their law". I'm sad to say that from October 2017 to this February, we have seen a staggering 315 percent increase in illegal aliens fraudulently using children to pose as family units to gain entry into this country. He said, "Having children does not give you immunity from arrest and prosecution". None of those laws or precedents mean that children must be taken away from their parents.

Some American religious leaders, however, denounced the policy.

"This was done by the president, not Democrats. Separating babies from their mothers is not the answer and is immoral".

At the moment Donald Trump says he won't support those plans, although on social media he has called for all politicians to work together to find a solution.

After that, he spent a year apiece with the Phoenix Suns, the Cleveland Cavaliers (alongside Lebron), and the Boston Celtics. Cleveland can offer him $205 million over five years, while other teams can offer him $152 million over four years.

"This must not be who we are as a nation", said Representative Jerrold Nadler, one of seven members of Congress from NY and New Jersey who met with five detainees inside a facility in Elizabeth, New Jersey, including three who said they had young relatives removed from their care after seeking asylum at the border. "I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our worldwide boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel", she wrote. "This must stop", she said. We need borders, we need security.

His tweets came as senior Republicans continued to call into question the hardline policy.

The senior among the first ladies, Rosalynn Carter, spoke through The Carter Center: "The practice and policy today of removing children from their parents' care at our border with Mexico is disgraceful and a shame to our country". Underscoring the emotional tension, first lady Melania Trump, who has tended to stay out of contentious policy debates, waded into the issue. "She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but governs with heart".

Is it policy or politics?

"I challenge anyone in the Trump Administration to listen to this audio and defend the child separation policy", tweeted Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon.

The president wrote on Twitter that the Democrats were responsible for the legislation. Meanwhile, 58 percent of American voters disagree with the idea that a wall would stem the flow of illegal immigrants across the border.

"We have the worst immigration laws in the entire world". The smugglers and traffickers know these loopholes better than our members of Congress.

Since the policy was enacted both Democrats and Republicans have spoken out against Trump and his administration. But neither bill has much hope of securing enough support in the Republican-controlled Congress, let alone surviving Trump's veto pen.

Kellyanne Conway is an advisor to the president.

"The president has made it very clear he wants to see full funding for the wall", Schlapp admitted. Mario Ritter was the editor.

"So we want a safe country".
