Attorney General Jeff Sessionssaid Monday that comparing the Trump administration's separation of families at the border to Nazi Germany is a "real exaggeration", noting that the Nazis were keeping Jews from leaving the country.
Almost 2,000 children were separated from their families over a six-week period in April and May.
President Trump's 2020 campaign manager called Tuesday for Trump to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions and end Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe. If the parents claim asylum and stay in the US, Sessions said, their children also stay but in Department of Health and Human Services' custody. The Obama administration also detained illegal immigrants at the border, but would detain parents and children together.
"But when we ignore our laws at the border we obviously encourage hundreds of thousands of people a year to likewise ignore our laws and illegally enter our country, creating an enormous burden on our law enforcement, our schools, our hospitals, and social programs", Sessions said.
So, why are children being separated from their families?
Sessions echoed Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's calls for Congress to change the nation's immigration laws. "We do not have the luxury of pretending that all individuals coming to this country as a family unit are in fact a family". They also suggest that by separating kids from their parents the Trump Administration could be violating global, federal and state laws that say a child is better off with their parents unless "a rigorous judicial inquiry" finds that the parent is unfit or has committed a crime. But there's nothing to celebrate for immigrant parents separated from their children. "Illegal actions have and must have consequences - no more free passes, no more get out of jail free cards", she said.
"It is morally repugnant to separate a child from their family-we can not normalize this inhumane and cruel behavior by the Trump Administration".
There is no official US law that requires the separation of families at the border. "We can not and will not encourage people to bring children by giving them blanket immunity from our laws". "It is immoral. And it breaks my heart", she wrote. "None of us want to imagine the fear that overcomes young children who are forced out of their parents' arms, which adds to the trauma that they have often faced in their countries of origin".
"The stories from the border make me ill".
