U.S. says It Knows Location of Migrant Children Separated from Parents

Donald Trump Just Told Republicans To Back Off Immigration Reform — For Now House defeats conservative immigration bill | New Hampshire

President Donald Trump is calling for the immediate deportation of all immigrants who cross the border illegally, he said on Twitter Sunday, noting that they shouldn't be granted a court hearing.

"We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in - we're stopping a lot of them", Mr. Trump said in the Cabinet Room during an hourlong meeting that reporters were allowed to document.

Democrats and other opponents of the administration's policy say that court case is not the root of the problem, noting that separating families was the exception, not the rule, for most of the two decades since the Flores case was resolved. Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and Law and Order.

Since buckling on the issue on Wednesday, Trump has redoubled his criticism of US immigration laws on Twitter and in speeches where he likened illegal immigrants to invaders trying to "break into" the country.

"Immigration must be based on merit - we need people who will help to Make America Great Again", he concluded.

Trump urges Republican lawmakers to drop immigration bill until election
Trump has falsely blamed Democrats for the policy of separating migrant parents from their children in federal custody. For the past week, Trump has demanded changes in U.S. immigration laws and encouraged Congress to act with urgency.

Russian Federation calls out USA ‘cynicism’ for rights council pullout
Under President Barack Obama the USA was elected for a maximum of two consecutive terms on the council by the UN General Assembly. She said the withdrawal notwithstanding, the USA would continue to defend human rights at the United Nations.

After Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a "zero-tolerance" policy in dealing with migrants who cross into the USA illegally, almost 2,000 children were separated from their families during a six-week period in April and May. No Democrats voted for the bill, while 41 Republican voted "yes". Plus, it took several days for the government to say how it planned to reunite families and where the separated children were located.

"The president of the United States has just forcefully proposed the end of political asylum and no due process for migrants", Sherrilyn Ifill, president of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, wrote on Twitter. "The American people...want to know we are on their side and not on the side of foreigners to come in and take the money that they earned", Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R., Calif.) said in an interview.

However, the president's frustration over the issue only grew.

President Donald Trump pressed his case for cracking down on undocumented immigrants on Sunday, tweeting that "zero tolerance" is fair and gives preference to those who "legally wait their turn". "This is an issue about what is right and what is wrong", Castro said. The stepped-up rhetoric came after the administration late Saturday announced a series of steps to reunite families that had been separated at the border under a now-abandoned policy.

As anger over the policy reached its peak, Trump signed an Executive Order on June 20 to enable these families to stay together. "Grit their teeth for four years and win the White House", adding, "This is not my party".
