To prosecute migrants, 'you have to take the children away'

Patty Aguilar | 20 June, 2018, 17:42

The growing crowds at these detention centers have thrust Trump's immigration policy into the spotlight, and he has faced calls to end the separation of families from Democrats, Republicans, celebrities and commentators, many of whom were silent while the Obama administration did the same thing.

Kennedy acknowledged that addressing undocumented immigration is "a legitimately hard issue", but argued it's unacceptable for the USA government to target young children.

Audio obtained by the investigative news outlet ProPublica captures the harrowing cries of 10 Central American children when they were taken from their parents at the U.S. border by immigration authorities. "Legislation is not the way to go here when it's so easy for the president to sign it".

So immigration may not be the winning ticket Trump believes.

That leads to the children being locked up in shelters while the cases work themselves out, and caused a barrage of criticism for both leaders.

After seeing the impact of the Trump administration's family separation policy firsthand, Dr Colleen Kraft, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, released a statement saying: "Separating children from their parents contradicts everything we stand for as pediatricians - protecting and promoting children's health".

But some worry the lack of a clear resolution could exacerbate an already tough situation as his party heads toward the mid-terms. Trump has placed the act of family separation on Democrats. They both abused refugee children and their parents - and now is the time to do something about it. Toomey didn't offer many specifics on how he would like the family-separation policy to be altered.

The explicit demand comes as Congress is trying to find a deal that is unrelated - at least in theory - to reunite children separated from their parents along the U.S-Mexican border, and it was not well received.

In May, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a new "zero tolerance" policy to refer everyone caught crossing the border for criminal prosecution, which would result in them being separated from their families. The detention of adults for prosecution as illegal immigrants required them to be separated from children apprehended by Customs and Border Patrol, who by law and by earlier Supreme Court decisions can not be detained in facilities intended for adults.

The Morocco defender Nabil Dirar added: "Tomorrow will be a final for us, an important battle". Salah scored a consolation penalty late on but it was not enough for the Pharaohs.

NBC host Megyn Kelly also weighed in with a tweet, adding, "There is no low to which this coward Corey Lewandowski won't sink". On Tuesday, Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray shared the 10-year-old girl's story, calling it "particularly painful".

Sergio Ramos inadvertently helped Cristiano Ronaldo score his penalty on Friday
When he turned 30, Ronaldo had scored 52 goals in 118 games for Portugal . "It is a privilege for us to have Ronaldo in our team". The win 1-0 win over Morocco was a highlight for the national team and takes pressure off the team's chances of advancing.

There are 100 sites scattered across 17 states.

"We're going to present, after we get sort of buy-in from our Republican Conference, to our Democratic colleagues to say this is a simple, straightforward solution that doesn't carry with it a lot of the baggage that usually drags down immigration reform", the Texas Republican told reporters Tuesday.

The major change unveiled Tuesday would loosen rules that now limit the amount of time minors can be held to 20 days, according to a GOP source familiar with the measure. But no law mandates that parents must be separated from their children at the border.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said in an appearance before the National Sheriffs' Association in New Orleans: "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".

Indeed, President Trump's latest thoughtless action and comments on immigration threaten to crush Republican momentum in the midterm elections. Thus, since they are taken into custody as potential criminals, their children are not allowed to stay with them.

In case you haven't been watching the news or following any social media timelines, the Trump administration is now separating children from their families at the border and keeping them in literal cages.

"There's no need for legislation, there's no need for anything else", Schumer added.

"You can do it. Mr President, you started it, you can stop it."

Trump also expressed disappointment with America's southern neighbor.
