Melania Trump enters USA immigration row

US separates 2000 children from parents at Mexico border

"I hate to see separation of parents and children", Trump said.

"I hate the children being taken away", Trump said Friday morning.

And Trump said: "The Democrats forced that law upon our nation".

"This must not be who we are as a nation", said Representative Jerrold Nadler, one of seven members of Congress from NY and New Jersey who met with five detainees inside the facility, including three who said they had young relatives removed from their care after seeking asylum at the border. Yet scuttling the bill could turn off independent voters, an especially important bloc for House Republicans competing in dozens of districts that Democrat Hillary Clinton won in the 2016 presidential election.

Though the policy has been enacted and touted by his own Administration, Trump has avoided publicly owning it and, instead, blamed Democrats for "forcing the breakup of families at the Border with their frightful and cruel legislative agenda".

More than 2,000 children have been removed from their parents over the last six weeks since Jeff Sessions, the U.S. attorney general, introduced the new approach.

"We needed to see what was happening and tell the country and the world about it", she said.

In a tweet on Saturday he urged Democrats to work with Republicans to create new laws.

Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon has said he believes Martin Luther King, Jr. would be "proud" of what President Donald Trump has done for African-American and Latino workers in the United States.

Whether you're winning or losing, you're always under pressure. "I thought the game was a good, hard tough test match". For some reason we are just not handling those key moments in the game well.

"I'm looking at both of them", Trump told Fox News. Karl asked Bannon on Sunday about the widespread criticism of the family separation policy, including from religious leaders such as top evangelical Franklin Graham, a Trump supporter, and Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the Catholic archbishop of NY. US border authorities are executing the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy toward undocumented immigrants. Those migrants had avoided detention during the administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Meanwhile, Republican members of Congress are spooked enough by the bad publicity that they inserted into their latest hard-line immigration bill - which is supposed to get a vote next week - a provision allowing children to be detained with their parents. Bannon said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday. "Trump and Sessions say they are following laws".

First Lady Melania Trump is reportedly troubled by the division of families at the U.S. -Mexico border and wishes a bipartisan solution could be reached.

"You saw the president (say) on camera that he wants this to end".

Almost 2,000 children have been separated from their parents and guardians and placed into holding facilities between April 19 and May 31 of this year, Department of Homeland Security spokesman Jonathan Hoffman told reporters Friday on a conference call.

But if parents in the United States are jailed, their children are split from them because the children are not themselves charged with a crime. Back then, however, exceptions were generally made for adults who were travelling with minor children, as well as juveniles and people who were ill.

Some immigrant advocates have said women were being separated from their infants - a charge homeland security and justice department officials flatly denied. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, visited a detention center Tuesday, later describing in a Facebook video the concerns of a mother he met who was about to be separated from her 7-year-old daughter.

The strategy is setting children up for "psychological scars that will take a lifetime to undo", he said.
