How to Challenge Trump's Family Separation, Anti-Immigration Policies

DHS: Nearly 2,000 Children Taken Under Trump’s New Border Policy

'As a mother, as a Catholic, as somebody who's got a conscience, ' Kellyanne Conway said, ' I will tell you that nobody likes this policy'.

Beyond those moral objections, Jeh Johnson, who as secretary of Homeland Security was the point man for the Obama administration's own struggles with illegal immigration, argued that deterrence, in and of itself, is neither practical nor a long-term solution to the problem.

For more than a decade, even as illegal immigration levels fell overall, seasonal spikes in unauthorized border crossings had bedevilled US presidents in both political parties, prompting them to cast about for increasingly aggressive ways to discourage migrants from making the trek.

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren rejected claims by President Trump that Democrats are to blame for the separation of immigrant children from their families at the border, saying the "immoral" policy could be stopped by the president in a matter of minutes. "It's zero tolerance. I don't think you have to justify it", Bannon, who was also CEO of Trump's presidential campaign, said to ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl in an exclusive interview on "This Week" Sunday.

The girl had been taken from her mother the night before and brought to this shelter that had been redecorated for children under age 12, Kraft said staffers told her.

"MS-13 gang members are truly, and you've heard me say it, animals." he said on Saturday. 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. Yet, there are numerous credible media accounts showing that exactly that is happening, and the administration needs to put an end to that right off. "And it's on all of us, not just the Trump administration, ' he said on CNN's 'State of the Union" on Sunday. "The family separation policy that Trump has weaponized is Un-American and inhumane", Alyssa Milano wrote.

OPEC sees 'considerable uncertainty' in oil market
Divisions over calls from Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation to put more oil on the market could make that meeting contentious. OPEC is set to meet in Vienna , Austria, from June 22-23, where analysts anticipate that oil supply will be increased again.

"This bill hardly fulfills President Trump's bold promise to fix immigration, and sure isn't a winning message for the GOP in the midterms", Hauman said. 'If he can't [acknowledge] that, I'll go tell him 'if you don't like families being supported, you can tell DHS to stop doing it'.

Simon Sandoval-Moshenberg, legal director of the immigrant advocacy program at the Legal Aid Justice Centre in Virginia, said he's never worked with immigrants who said US policies influenced their decision to move. Collins called that bill too broad and said she supports bipartisan immigration legislation proposed in February that ultimately failed.

Hundreds of children are waiting away from their parents inside a Border Patrol holding facility in South Texas, with groups of 20 or more children to a single cage.

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.

Because the government is charging the parents in the criminal justice system, children are separated from them, with no clear procedure for their reunification aside from hotlines the parents can call to try to track their children down. Persons who violate the law of our nation are subject to prosecution.

In another attack on immigrants, Sessions announced this week that adults coming to the USA who are either survivors of domestic violence or escaping gang violence will not be eligible to seek asylum in the U.S.
