The lawsuit pointed out that even NY children who live in foster care were afforded more rights than their immigrant counterparts, and provided regular visitation rights even when one or both parents are incarcerated. Democratic senators said that wasn't almost enough progress.

"The U.S. government never had any plan to reunite these families that were separated", Sandoval-Moshenberg said, and now it is "scrambling to undo this awful thing that they have done".

McAleenan maintained that the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" tactics were still in effect, although the commissioner's guidance to his agents largely leaves the policy in limbo. "The agencies are trying to coordinate better", she said. "But the kids we have been seeing have not been in contact with the parents".

"These immigrants are coming over here, turning themselves in, because they're fleeing for their lives", he said.

The Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request for a comment on the multistate lawsuit.

While that settlement is in place, Azar said the children could not be moved to be with their parents in detention. "They're just distraught. Their urgent need is just trying to figure out, 'Where is my parent?'"

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he will ask Congress for an increase in funding for his proposed wall along the border with Mexico so it can be finished quickly.

A group of 17 USA states and the District of Columbia branded Mr Trump's crackdown "cruel and unlawful" in court documents filed today. "And that's why the American people are sick of the lip service and the hypocrisy". But the president speaks for more Americans than his critics want to acknowledge when he expresses deep frustration with people who flout immigration laws.

"This situation has reached a crisis level". Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., a member of House GOP leadership, is also quietly working on a standalone proposal that the House could take up following the immigration vote but it's unclear whether the House will vote on the bill before adjourning for the July 4th recess.

Outside the USA attorney's office, protesters carried signs reading, "Free the children!" and "Stop caging families". Police handcuffed them and led them away.

Hundreds of protesters gathered and marched through the streets in front of the Millennium Biltmore Hotel downtown, where the U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions was scheduled to deliver remarks to the Criminal Justice Foundation's annual luncheon.

The quip sparked some laughter in the venue as the attorney general went on to chastise the "so-called elites".
