Advocates target separation of immigrant families at border

CNN Gives Airtime to Ridiculous ‘Controversy’ After Ivanka Trump Shares a Photo of Her Son on Social Media, When Illegal Immigrants Are Separated From Their Children

Last month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced an official policy of arresting and separating all parents from their children if they cross the border illegally. As a result, those who are traveling with children are now being separated once detained because children can't be held in adult jails.

On May 4, the Homeland Security secretary ordered federal prosecution against any individual caught crossing the border illegally.

"Dems must agree to Wall and new Border Protection for good of country", he wrote.

"DHS has continued the previous administration policy", a senior Trump administration said earlier this week during a briefing on the issue. Brownsville and Nogales, Ariz. have been central to processing the more than 47,000 unaccompanied children who have entered the country illegally since October 1.

HHS has said it has no legal responsibility to trace these children. And because many adult sponsors, including parents, are living in the country illegally, they may fear contact with federal officials.

HHS has made it a practice to make phone calls to check in on the minor's placement. "If you call a friend and they don't answer the phone, you don't assume that they've been kidnapped".

"If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you and that child will be separated from you as required by law", he said, adding: "If you don't like that, then don't smuggle children over our border".

"What's happened is the exception to the rule is now becoming the rule", said Wendy Young, president of the advocacy group Kids in Need of Defense. "There are no "loopholes" nor statutory requirements that children be ripped from their parents' arms as a matter of routine practice". Others would say that they only opposed illegal immigration but not legal immigration, and would pay lip service to the idea that we're a nation of immigrants. The story featured photos taken by AP's Ross D. Franklin at a center run by the Customs and Border Protection Agency in Nogales, Arizona. They reached 86 percent of the children or sponsors, but the department could not verify the whereabouts of 1,475.

Carrying posters, placards and chanting slogans, protesters demanded that the Trump administration end funding to the controversial Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs Border Patrol.

The Trump administration has criticized these policies of leading to "catch and release" method of border security, with Trump calling for a more hardline approach that adheres more closely to current laws.

This assertion is blatantly false and President Obama's White House Domestic Policy Council advisor Cecilia Munoz, who regularly advised the president on immigration issues, just proved it. Munoz oversaw the handling of the unaccompanied minor crisis of 2014, when children were sleeping in cages at federal detention and processing centers.

The number of separated minors is expected to jump once Trump's new "zero tolerance" policy is enacted. "It was not an Obama policy".

'Active Shooter' video game pulled after backlash
She may team up with another Mercer Island resident to start programs that would help prevent school shootings , she said. The statement concluded by noting that Steam will soon have a "broader conversation" about their content policies.

He has treated the statistics as a gauge for the success of his hard-line immigration policies, and when border arrests fell to historic lows in the months after his inauguration a year ago, Trump touted the decrease as a personal triumph. This is not a side effect of having a tough immigration policy; this is the goal of the policy as White House Chief of Staff John Kelly let slip on NPR last month, "The big name of the game is deterrence".

Here's the issue: Neither case requires parents to be separated from their children. But Hudson, testifying last week to Congress, did not say whether the families were separated.

A number of prominent liberals - and even a former Obama administration official - shared the photos in outrage, mistakenly believing they depicted the Trump administration's treatment of immigrant children who were forcibly separated from their parents.

"This is a new decision, a policy decision put in place by the attorney general", which Muñoz said "puts us in league with the most brutal regimes in the world's history". "Parents are telling their older kids, 'Be fearless, be courageous'".

Clinton called on people who were also "feeling helpless" to help by supporting groups like the American Civil Liberties Union, Women Belong, United We Dream and more. Miroff covers drug trafficking, border security and transnational crime on The Washington Post's National Security desk.
