On Sunday top White House adviser Kellyanne Conway distanced the Trump administration from responsibility for separating families at the border - even though the administration put in place and could easily end the policy. Jerry Nadler, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, Rep. Carolyn Maloney, Rep. Adriano Espaillat, of NY, and Rep.
"We are fixing family separation within this bill and have made changes to keep children with at least one of their parents", he said. "Hell no, they're going to come back looking for their kids".
Democratic candidate Josh Harder held a protest Thursday over the separation policy at the Modesto, California, offices of Republican Rep. Jeff Denham, one of the leaders of the House effort to craft a Republican compromise bill. "We are still being denied access".
Whereas angered protesters rallied at airports after Trump's first iteration of the Muslim-majority country travel ban, and internet users submitted public comments to the FCC supporting net neutrality, impeding the separation of families and holding the door open for vulnerable asylum-seeking immigrants feels far less actionable. "Let them call you racist", Bannon said at that event. That is a lie. Trump has tried to blame the practice on a law passed by Democrats that doesn't exist.
In 2005, he launched Operation Streamline, a program along a stretch of the border in Texas that referred all unlawful entrants for criminal prosecution, imprisoning them and expediting assembly-line-style trials geared toward quickly deporting them. "It's that simple", said Sessions. "If you smuggle illegal aliens across our border, then we will prosecute you".
Technically, Nielsen's correct: families are separated not at the US-Mexico border, but near the border, at a sorting centre. "Love these children the same way you love your own." Sen.
"He went to a zero-tolerance policy", Bannon said on ABC's "This Week". Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME said Sunday the number "may well be higher". 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. "That is traumatising to the children, who are innocent victims".
An anonymous White House official told The Washington Post this week that Trump is hoping to use the harsh policy as leverage to force Democrats to cave to his other immigration demands, like funding a border wall and lessening the amount of people allowed to immigrate to the US legally.
"And this administration has made it clear that we are not going to ignore the law any longer".
But she added that "all laws" needed to be followed and called upon "both sides of the aisle" to "come together to achieve successful immigration reform".
Compare that to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, with his twisted assertion that the administration's "zero tolerance" policy is somehow biblically mandated.
Kraft said that the separation from their parents is inflicting serious damage to the children.
Some Republican lawmakers have joined Democrats in recent days to push Trump to reverse or modify the family separation policy by giving new instructions to the Department of Homeland Security.
Trump has claimed he hates the idea of separating children from the parents who try to enter the country, but the administration has acknowledged that crackdown on the families could serve as a deterrent.
"We know from years of experience that we need to fix our immigration laws and that using children is not the answer", Collins said.
"It's zero tolerance. I don't think you have to justify it", Bannon argued. And I sympathize with the reason.
