Liberals Trying to Shame Trump on Immigration Reveal US' History of Cruelty

"The point is, the administration has said, we would like to terminate or modify the Flores settlement agreement, and also to fund detention space sufficient to maintain the entire the entire family unit together in continuous custody until their removal", unless they qualify for certain immigration relief like asylum, he said.

Soon after President Donald Trump's inauguration in January 2017, border crossings briefly dropped to record lows before creeping back up again at the end of a year ago.

Officials said Tuesday they are planning more thorough screening of both minors and their sponsors, including a fingerprint background check of every sponsor.

What prompted the current outcry?

"The View" co-host Meghan McCain admitted she was more offended by Ivanka Trump's clumsy political skills than the immigration crisis she's accused of ignoring in a tone-deaf social media photo.

"Democrats mistakenly tweet 2014 pictures from Obama's term showing children from the Border in steel cages", Trump wrote on Twitter.

A New York Times report in April claimed more than 700 children had been taken from adults purporting to be their parents since October - including more than 100 younger than 4 years.

That story began after Department of Health and Human Services official Steven Wagner testified during a Senate committee hearing late last month that the federal agency had lost track of 1,475 children who had crossed the border with Mexico, unaccompanied by adults, and who were subsequently were placed with adult sponsors in the U.S. In 2015 it emerged that a group of minors from Guatemala had been contracted into forced labour after being placed with sponsors by the government. "Fuck your #SundayMorning", Halsey replied to Ivanka's photo of her and her son.

Critics attacked the timing of Ms Trump's post on Sunday, and used it to draw attention to anger over separated and missing children.

Some are now calling for a march in cities across the USA on 14 June. "They will not be given a free pass, and that is irrespective of whether or not they have brought a child with them".

What has the government's response been?

But several plans, including one based on President Donald Trump's proposal, failed to gain enough support in February after a week of debate. We have to break up families. The Democrats gave us that law. Would you have said the same thing? "And that is what all of us - Democrats and Republicans - should want changed as soon as humanly possible".

The signal innovation of the Trump administration is to aim for the same goal of self-deportation by more severe and therefore more effective means.

Around the same time, the Trump administration announced a "zero-tolerance" policy to ramp up prosecutions of individuals who cross the border illegally.

In the past, that information was largely walled off for the purposes of immigration enforcement while the sponsors were vetted by HHS, out of a concern that Homeland Security's involvement could have a "chilling effect" on parents living in the country illegally and discourage them from claiming the kids.

"If you are smuggling a child then we will prosecute you, and that child will be separated from you as required by law", Attorney General Jeff Sessions warned earlier this month.

Nice try, sir. But as experts quickly pointed out, there is no law that specifically requires the government to separate children from their parents unless the parents are violating a law.

Under a court settlement that prohibits the long-term detention of illegal immigrant children, USA authorities have placed tens of thousands of teenagers with parents or other relatives - or in foster homes, as a last resort.
