Trump justifies separation of children from migrant parents

Trump justifies separation of children from migrant parents

"This is something that transcends politics". Instead, the children could be detained with their parents for extended periods.

An audio recording that appears to capture the heartbreaking voices of small children crying out for their parents at a United States immigration facility is fuelling fury over the Trump administration's policy of separating immigrant children from their parents.

Propublica released audio of children screaming and crying after they were separated from their immigrant parents by Trump and Sessions's draconian "zero tolerance" policy. Listen to it here, it's absolutely heartbreaking.

The bill would add more federal immigration judges, authorise new temporary shelters to house migrant families, speed the processing of asylum cases and require that families that cross the border illegally to be kept together, if there is no criminal conduct or threats to the welfare of children.

The agency further noted that it only refers to the Department of Justice "those adults who violate the law by crossing the border illegally and are amenable for prosecution".

After concluding his speech at Tuesday's business event, Trump hugged the American flag and thanked attendees.

He has cast blame for the separations on Democrats, although his fellow Republicans control both chambers in Congress and the current policy of strict adherence to the law was implemented by his own Republican administration.

US- Several Central American children separated from parents at the southern US border are heard desperately sobbing and wailing in a recording released on Monday by transparency group ProPublica, some so hard they nearly can not breathe. Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME said on Sunday the number "may well be higher".

"They don't care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest our Country, like MS-13", he tweeted.

"Mexico does nothing for us", said the president. "Go for it! WIN!"

Democratic Rep. Ben Ray Lujan of New Mexico said the location was a former hospital converted into living quarters for children, with rooms divided by age group.

Democrat representative Mark Pocan, from Wisconsin, who joined senators Merkley and Van Hollen in Texas, said that he thought Mr Trump believed the policy was popular with his political base.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders: "I can say that it is very biblical to enforce the law". "I think they're way miscalculating". We could have an immigration bill, we could have child separation. "We've got to stop separation of the families, but politically correct or not, we have a country that needs security, that needs safety, that has to be protected".

He didn't directly mention the "zero tolerance" policy in the first tweet, but later responses made it clear that he opposed it. "It is immoral. And it breaks my heart", she wrote in a guest column published Sunday in The Washington Post. She said immigrants will continue to seek asylum unless their home countries see major change. The legislation wouldn't explicitly forbid the incarceration of children alongside their parents.

"I support, and all of the members of the Republican conference support, a plan that keeps families together while their immigration status is determined", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters on Tuesday.

The girl's aunt said the experience had been truly hard. What's heard in the audio are presumed Central American children wailing and sobbing for their parents.
