Border policy fuels backlash against Trump — WHAT'S HAPPENING

Melania Trump 'hates' to see children separated from families at US border

"We will not apologise for the job we do or for the job law enforcement does for doing the job that the American people expect us to do", she told the National Sheriffs' Association annual conference in New Orleans.

"We have to do our job".

"Stop this inhumane, barbaric policy, rescind your actions, take responsibility for it", Pelosi said in San Diego, according to KABC.

In fact, Trump doesn't need congressional Democrats to end his administration's new family separation policy "quickly". "Separating families is not mandated by law at all", Clinton said. "Period", Nielsen tweeted late Sunday.

"When you exempt a group of people from the law. that creates a draw", said Manuel Padilla, the Border Patrol's chief agent there.

Michelle Obama joined her fellow former first lady Laura Bush Monday in criticizing the hard-line Trump administration immigration policy that has led to families being separated at the border.

However, the Justice Department announced it would prosecute all of the cases referred to it at the beginning of April.

"Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform", said Stephanie Grisham, a spokeswoman for Mrs. Trump.

Trump on Monday falsely blamed Democrats - the minority party in Washington - for obstructing legislation to fix the situation.

AZ Groups Condemn Separation of Children, Parents at Border
That falsely leaves the impression that only children travelling with gang members or other violent criminals will be separated. Crossing the border between official ports of entry is and has always been illegal, according to U.S.

More than 1,100 people were inside the large, dark facility that's divided into separate wings for unaccompanied children, adults on their own, and mothers and fathers with children.

"This can not continue", Sessions said.

People gather on the steps of City Hall in Los Angeles on June 7, 2018 to protest immigration policies that result in the separation of children and their parents. Adults who do cross the border illegally will still be detained but be kept with their children in the same facility until their case is adjudicated. "That's their law." - remarks to reporters Friday. "This must not be who we are as a nation", said Representative Jerrold Nadler. "If we build the wall, if we pass legislation to end the lawlessness, we won't face these bad choices". We want safety and we want security for our country. The House is expected to vote this week on a bill pushed by conservatives that may not have enough support to pass, and a compromise measure with key proposals supported by the president.

"Where is the outcry for the killings and crime being caused by gangs and thugs, including MS-13, coming into our country illegally?" he added.

"We don't want what is happening with immigration in Europe to happen with us!"

But controversy over DHS treatment of families continues to heat up. "I live in a border state", she said.

"I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our worldwide boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel", she wrote. "It is immoral", Bush tweeted. Laura Bush said the ongoing policy at the border "breaks her heart" in an editorial published by The Washington Post.

Carl Anthony, a first ladies historian and author in Los Angeles, said it's rare but not unprecedented for a majority of all living first ladies to weigh in similarly on political and catastrophic events.

"We're stuck with these terrible laws". She told ProPublica the person who made the recording was a client of hers who asked to remain anonymous because that person feared retribution.
