Pennsylvania GOP Senate Candidate Defends Trump Family Separation Policy

According to CBS News, it is part of a "zero tolerance" policy announced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions two months ago, in which immigrants crossing into the USA illegally will face criminal prosecution and are immediately taken into custody. Nor did she mention the fact that, in many cases, these children are not part of a "family unit", but rather strangers to the adults they cross the border with, adults who pretend to be parents in the hope America will "catch and release" them into the country - because catching and releasing them is the only way to keep these families together.

While the documents don't speak to the conceptualization of the policy or the internal deliberations that preceded it, they call into question the administration's justification for the policy.

The Department of Homeland Security said last week that almost 2,000 immigrant children had been separated from their parents over a span of six weeks after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the new "zero tolerance" policy. In a guest column for the Washington Post Sunday, Mrs.

Despite Sessions' public announcement of the strategy, President Donald Trump has continually heaped blame on Democrats, saying the party must "change their law" to stop the separations. "It is immoral. And it breaks my heart", she wrote. "They are the ones who broke the law, they are the ones who endangered their own children on their trek". "I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our global boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel", she wrote.

Conway rejects the idea that President Donald Trump is using the kids as leverage to get Democrats to negotiate on immigration and his border wall.

One would possibly end the separation policy, fund the border wall and give legal protections to some immigrants who entered the country as children.

Mrs Trump has called for Republicans and Democrats to work together on the issue. Two competing bills are headed to the floor, a hard-line immigration measure that is expected to go down, and a compromise version crafted by the House Republican leadership. "I want that person to say it to my face", she told Todd "I'll meet them at the White House today because I think that's a disgrace".

Steve Bannon, Trump's former chief strategist, said the administration's "zero tolerance" policy on immigration doesn't have to be justified.

"I hate children being taken away". "The Democrats have to change their law - that's their law". Seven House Democrats visited a detention facility in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and said they were blocked for almost two hours before being allowed to see parents separated from their children.

Kelly, Trump's former head of Department of Homeland Security, told NPR last month the policy is one "no one hopes will be used extensively or for very long".
