Stephen Miller Was Driving Force Behind Trump Family Separation Policy

O'Rourke said Sunday that Congress would not pass an immigration bill "at the cost of ending family migration, which is the history of this country".

She said 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".

The handout recommends that parents call ICE, call the ORR Parent Hotline, or email the two organizations to locate their children.

The attempt to gain advantage from a practice the American Academy of Pediatrics describes as causing children "irreparable harm" sets up a high-stakes gambit for Trump, whose political career has long benefited from harsh rhetoric on immigration.

A child illegally entering the U.S.is generally separated from adults at the border if the child is in danger, has no clear relationship to the adult, or if the adult enters criminal proceedings.

There is no law that requires parents be separated from their children at the border.

The "zero-tolerance" border security policy implemented by President Donald Trump's administration has sparked outrage on both sides of the political aisle and took on particular resonance as America celebrated Father's Day. Ben Ray Lujan, of New Mexico, said Trump "could pick up the phone and stop it today". Because of a 1997 court settlement that bars children from being imprisoned with parents, Justice Department officials now say they have no choice but to isolate the children. "I mean, I hate to say it, that's the law and he's enforcing the law".

Rep. Beto O'Rourke, who is running for Senate in Texas against Republican Sen.

Collins and Republican Senator Jeff Flake sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security asking questions about the family separation policy, but it focused only on those who are seeking asylum. He called the situation "inhumane" and "un-American".

Senator Susan Collins, a Republican from ME, said the administration was sending a message to migrants.

Representative Adam Schiff said the practice was "deeply unethical" and that Republicans' refusal to criticise Mr Trump represented a "sad degeneration" of the party, which he said had become "the party of lies".

Many churches have quickly slammed Sessions' reasoning - including the Attorney General's own church.

Sessions has repeatedly touted the policy and it's necessity in appearance around the country and in interviews.

"I don't see the mainstream media, and I don't see the liberal left embracing the Angel Moms, those people that were permanently separated from their children because of illegal aliens that came over here and committed crimes and killed people", he said in response to a question.

Appearing on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos", Bannon told guest host Jonathan Karl that it is time for Trump to play hardball. The man has heard his daughter was taken to MI, but he is not sure and has not spoken to her, he said.

"Non-citizens who cross our borders unlawfully, between our ports of entry, with children are not an exception", the attorney general said.

And on Sunday morning he retweeted a tweet from Saturday blaming Democrats for breaking up families.

"Democrats can fix their forced family breakup at the Border by working with Republicans on new legislation, for a change!" This is why we need more Republicans elected in November.

Some 1,500 boys are being held in a former Walmart supermarket in Texas, and the government is erecting tent structures near the border to house the increasing number of migrant children, including unaccompanied minors, in custody. The children were fed; they had beds, toys, a playground and people who change their nappies.

Yet several key Trump administration officials support the family separation policy, including Chief of Staff John Kelly, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and senior adviser Stephen Miller, a vocal supporter of stricter immigration laws.
