Advocates target ICE separation of immigrant families at US-Mexico border

Former Barack Obama speech writer Jon Favreau's now-deleted tweet

President Trump's practice of separating growing numbers of immigrant parents from their children is so cruel - and unnecessary - that it should be denounced by worldwide organizations such as the United Nations. "It's a disgusting thing, we have to break up families".

Trump's tweet follows the admission by the US Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) in late April that it lost track of some 1,500 immigrant children who were settled with sponsors, another revelation that caused uproar among liberals online. Exactly 1,475 children are missing.

Did the USA really lose some 1500 migrant children?

On Tuesday, Trump tweeted: "The 13 Angry Democrats (plus people who worked 8 years for Obama) working on the rigged Russia Witch Hunt, will be MEDDLING with the midterm elections, especially now that Republicans (stay tough!) are taking the lead in Polls".

HHS has a policy that, when they reunify a child with a sponsor in the United States, they call the phone number that the sponsor submitted to the government 30 days afterward.

In this April 29, 2018 file photo, a member of the Central American migrant caravan, holding a child, looks through the border wall toward a group of people gathered on the US side, as he stands on the beach where the border wall ends in the ocean, in Tijuana, Mexico, Sunday, April 29, 2018.

Face it, Americans, looking the other way while children are harmed by our government is in our DNA, as evidenced by slavery and Native American "boarding schools".

An official from the Health and Human Services Department told a congressional hearing last month that his department placed follow-up phone calls from October to December to US households that were sponsoring minors who crossed the border without their parents.

"These are not loopholes", Feinstein said at a recent hearing.

Officials said Tuesday they are planning more thorough screening of both minors and their sponsors, including a fingerprint background check of every sponsor. Critics are conflating those children with others, who came to the border with their parents, only to be separated there. "But there's no reason to believe that anything has happened to the kids". "If you call a friend and they don't answer the phone, you don't assume that they've been kidnapped".

Democrats have so far unanimously opposed Trump's plan to build a wall on the border with Mexico.

"If you smuggle illegal aliens across our border, then we will prosecute you".

"Like many of my colleagues in sports, I have used social media as a means to keep up with the news", the statement said. For more information about the different accounts, be sure to read The Ringer's report on the story.

On May 7, Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the current administration's policy explicit, in an apparent attempt to deter border crossings.

I wonder what #SundayMorning is like for the parents of 1500 lost children your father is responsible for.

HHS releases the vast majority of the children into the care of a "sponsor" - typically the child's parent or a close adult relative. "It's creating this effect of people saying, 'Why are we presenting ourselves if we know the Trump administration is doing this?'"

The law requires unaccompanied minors from nations other than Mexico or Canada to be sent to the care of the Office for Refugee Settlement or relatives in the USA while removal proceedings take place.

Because of the "zero tolerance" policy, there are more separations happening.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a statement that it is "committed to connecting these family members as quickly as possible after separation", and that it will work with the Department of Health and Human Services to "set up regular communication and removal coordination, if necessary".

"Put pressure on the Democrats to end the awful law that separates children from there (sic) parents once they cross the Border into the US", Trump tweeted.

Nasseri agreed that recent news coverage may bring awareness to major immigration issues, but the treatment of undocumented immigrants deters those who already are in the US from petitioning to gain proper documentation.

Trump used the opportunity to point to his solution to mass illegal immigration.

Sessions has railed against the asylum system.

The #WhereAreTheChildren marketing campaign has sparked passions on either side of the immigration problem, with either side choosing up on chosen information and statistics to make a political case. More children are expected to be separated from their parents as a result. The Department of Homeland Security instituted the policy that refers anyone caught crossing the border illegally for prosecution, even if they claim asylum or have small children. A federal judge is likely to rule on that case in the coming weeks.
