Joe Kennedy protests Trump’s family-separation policy near ‘tent city’ for children

U.S. GovernmentA Walmart-turned-shelter houses almost 1,500 undocumented children

The Department of Homeland Security said Friday that the government had separated about 2,000 children from parents at the border since implementing a policy that results in such family separations. "Yeah, but they're not your kids, they're somebody else's kids and they're screaming for their parents".

Since Attorney General Jeff Sessions introduced that policy in May, hundreds of children have been separated from their parents at the border, and some have been sent to the former Walmart in Brownsville.

The march was organized by Democratic Congressman Beto O'Rourke.

He described the large tents housing the children as containing "a full heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, as well as a floor and doors".

US prosecutors pull encrypted messages from phones seized in Cohen raids
Cohen's attorney, Brent Blakely, argues that Avenatti is "mainly driven by his seemingly unquenchable thirst for publicity". Agents seized paper files, computerized documents and phones from Cohen's home, safety deposit box and office in April.

The Trump administration has for months sought solutions for accommodating the rising number of unaccompanied children and migrant families apprehended at the border in recent months. The policy calls for adults to be criminally prosecuted, causing them to lose custody of the children accompanying them.

"Look, it's just flatly untrue", Kennedy said of Trump's claim that forced separation is not his policy.

"I'm confident that the American people this time are going to get it right", O'Rourke said.

Meanwhile, the Trump administration's policy of separating families is coming under fire from both sides of the aisle on Capitol Hill. "We've all got to own this, we can not blame this on Trump, we can not blame this on a political party - this is America right now, and so America's gotta show up". "I want that person to say it to my face", she said.

Farrah Abraham After Arrest: I Don't Want to Be Attacked Again
Police said in a statement that Abraham was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor battery and trespassing. This time Farrah Abraham is the one who ended her evening in the back of a squad vehicle .

"We were told there were 98 kids in this tent city yesterday, we were told today there are 200 kids", O'Rourke said.

"This is a symptom of a flawed strategy and in the land of the free and home of the courageous we shouldn't use kids as deterrence", said Hurd, who represents a vast border district that includes the port of entry.

Kennedy's great-grandmother Rose showed his father old newspaper clippings of job advertisements warning "No Irish Need Apply" when he was a child.

"We would like to think, and we try to tell ourselves, this is not America, this is not us, this is not what we do", he said. They planned to investigate the CBP's practice of referring all immigrants for criminal processing at the border, even if they have valid asylum claims that could legally be made under United States law.

"We don't want kids to be separated from their parents", said House Speaker Paul Ryan, as quoted by the Associated Press.
