US Chamber of Commerce CEO Thomas Donohue said: "Thousands of children are being forcibly removed from their parents by our government. this is not who we are and it must stop now".

Heart-rending scenes and sounds of crying children taken from their families have aroused a firestorm of opposition to Trump's crackdown on illegal immigration. "The compromise that's most recent is a compromise within a compromise". In fact, it is new and a near blanket policy in practice and intention.

A growing chorus of critics - including some Republicans - have noted that the Trump administration implemented the policy unilaterally and could rescind it with the stroke of a pen. Top administration officials including the attorney general, Jeff Sessions, and White House chief of staff, John Kelly, said, however, that the policy is necessary to deter migrants from attempting to illegally enter the country. Fact: According to the zero-tolerance policy outlined by Sessions, those entering the USA irregularly would be criminally prosecuted, a change to a long-standing policy of charging most of those crossing for the first time with a misdemeanor offense.

The effort would mark a dramatic departure for an administration that has been insisting, wrongly, that it has no choice but to separate families apprehended at the border because of the law and a court decision. Children of jailed parents must be transferred to shelters under the responsibility of the Department of Health and Human Services.

Kerlikowske ran CBP between 2014 and 2017, and he reflected on times he met with Central American migrants on the border, as waves of migrants grew who were asking for asylum during his tenure.

But Democrats quickly shot down any thought of signing on, saying they're in no rush to help Mr. Trump clean up the mess they say he's made.

He added in another tweet: "If you don't have Borders, you don't have a Country!"

Democrats say the crisis is of Trump's own making, and accuse him of using children as pawns. "But the big point is they elected to come illegally into the United States and this is a technique that no one hopes will be used extensively or for very long".

"I think getting this compromise bill to the finish line is going to be a lot more challenging than I would have anticipated", said Rep. Ryan Costello, a Republican from Pennsylvania.

Under those policies, children nabbed at the border with their parents generally can not be held in detention longer than 20 days.

The settlement of a class-action lawsuit set policies for the treatment and release of unaccompanied children who are caught at the border. If adults have been held in detention for longer periods, children typically have been released to a relative or sponsor - and they still can be, although fingerprinting is expected to deter relatives whose status is undocumented from coming forward because of heightened fear. She said family separation is a "heartbreaking.issue that could be changed in a moment by the president of the United States". Of about 2,000 children separated from parents in the past six weeks about 100 are under the age of 4 years.
