Bannon Says Trump Doesn't Have to `Justify' Border Separations

Trump has also blamed Democrats for the migrants' continued plight, citing their refusal to accept a bill that would fully fund the border wall and end family reunification visas.

"Democrats are good at only three things, High, High Crime and Obstruction".

In a statement on Sunday, the first lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said that "Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform". "Don't wait until after the election because you are going to lose!"

"Compromising on the rule of law to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants is the wrong path to take", she said of the House plan. More than the legal outcome of their cases, their advocates say, they're anxious about their children.

Stephen Bannon, who helped guide President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign to victory and then served briefly as top White House strategist, said Sunday that the president should draw a line in the sand over his proposed border wall.

United States officials said on Friday that almost 2,000 children were separated from adults at the border between mid-April and the end of May.

One of the Republican immigration bills, a hard-line effort led by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (Va.), is not expected to garner enough support to pass the chamber.

The United Nations has called on the USA to immediately halt the separations.

Democrats have introduced legislation to force Trump's hand.

"The president is not telling the truth".

Donald Trump told reporters on Friday, when asked about separating migrant families at the U.S. -Mexico border: "I hate the children being taken away". Since then, the administration has been steadily eroding protections for immigrant children and families. "She's an unbelievable mom, a kind and caring stepmother, and she truly cares deeply about the well-being of all children". "It's a disgrace, it's shameful and it's un-American".

Since Trump's inauguration, the administration has issued at least half a dozen orders and changes affecting immigrant children, many of them obscure revisions.

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 US illegally will face criminal prosecution and are immediately taken into custody.

In a Father's Day demonstration on Sunday, seven Democrat members of Congress from NY and New Jersey joined hundreds of protesters outside an immigration detention facility in New Jersey to protest the separations.

In the first two weeks of the "zero-tolerance" approach, 658 minors - including many babies and toddlers - were separated from the adults that travelled with them, according to USA border officials.

Trump deflected mounting criticism over the government's separation of parents and children of illegal immigrants in a tweet Sunday evening, saying lawmakers need to "work something out on Border Security & Safety".

Some of Trump's fellow Republicans also have said the policy must end. "That's traumatising to the children who are innocent victims, and it is contrary to our values in this country". It passed unanimously in Congress and was signed by Republican President George W. Bush.

"I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our worldwide boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel", she wrote. One woman tried to give her toys and books to calm her down, but even that shelter worker seemed frustrated, Kraft told The Washington Post, because as much as she wanted to console the little girl, she couldn't touch, hold or pick her up to let her know everything would be all right. A bill authored by Senator Dianne Feinstein has attracted near universal support among the caucus, with several red-state Democrats committing to it on Sunday; only West Virginia's Joe Manchin remains on the fence.
