DHS: 2,000 children separated from parents at border

DHS: 2,000 children separated from parents at border

Bob Goodlatte, said he had spoken to Trump on Saturday and that the president "is fully committed to both of these bills".

Last week, U.S. Sen.

Health and Human Services blames Congress, saying its inability to pass legislation on border security "created perverse and unsafe incentives for illegal border crossings and child smuggling".

"Maybe we can bring some sense of morality to bear once the Department of Justice realizes that the American people don't want to be represented in this way", Brooks said.

The Republican-led House of Representatives may vote next week on two immigration measures - a hard-line bill drafted by House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, and a compromise measure that limits legal immigration while also ending the family separations.

"Detention center employees have covered the window with paper to block our view", said New Jersey Rep. Bill Pascrell. Ties between the media and the White House have become so testy that at one point during the White House pow-woe the President snapped, "Quiet!" The meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, the person said. "They had been planning this for a while". Almost 2,000 children were removed from the care of their parents and taken into federal custody between April 19 and May 31, an immigration official said Friday.

While the Department of Homeland Security says it's put in place a zero-tolerance policy, it denied it was separating asylum seekers.

"We do not separate breastfeeding children from their parents", the DHS official said.

Conway rejected the idea that Trump was using the kids as leverage to force Democrats to negotiate on immigration and his long-promised border wall, even after Trump tweeted at the weekend: "Democrats can fix their forced family breakup at the Border by working with Republicans on new legislation, for a change!"

'Give us your huddled masses yearning to breathe free...and we will lock their children in cages with tin-foil blankets. "I try not get swayed by what the emotions are or the pressure". "This little girl is the same age as my daughter. luna is the happiest thing. the funniest girl. and she is absolutely terrified to look around and realize she is too far away from us, even for seconds. the fear she would feel here fills me with rage and sadness".

"This is barbaric. This is not what America is", she said. "Congress should focus on border security and stop talking about amnesty as a solution". Democratic candidates running for vulnerable Republican seats also have begun to make the harsh treatment of children a centerpiece of their campaigns. Bob Casey took an equally aggressive approach against his own party's immigration plan. "I don't see a reason to spend the money doing that", Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said in an interview Friday. "What does it accomplish?"

Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives will introduce legislation this week aimed at stopping separations, mirroring a similar Senate bill sponsored by Democrat Dianne Feinstein. That's yet another concern child advocates now have since the Trump administration is requiring fingerprints of sponsors and their household members and will turn that data over to the immigration agency in charge of deportations.

The Republicans who declined to comment or ignored AP questions included Senate candidates Patrick Morrisey of West Virginia, Josh Hawley of Missouri, Mike Braun of IN and Matt Rosendale of Montana.

The immigration hard-liner was identified by the Times in May as being part of a "zero tolerance" sect of White House aides who have been intentionally "cruel".
