Halsey Lays Into Ivanka Trump for New Photo With Her Son

Elizabeth Warren Says Children Being Torn Out of Mothers’ Arms is on Donald Trump's Head

On Tuesday morning, Trump herself seemed to indirectly address the controversy by tweeting that people should focus on what they can control and "ignore the trolls!".

It all comes just in time for the midterm elections as Republicans and Democrats try to rally core voters by pointing fingers at one another.

Make no mistake: This new policy is vicious, brutal and is nothing less than Trump administration-endorsed, USA government-sanctioned child abuse.

The fact that Ivanka posted the following photo on social media, that very day, goes to show you how irrevocably detached from real-world issues she is-completely unaware that this would cause a public outcry.

The eldest daughter of President Donald Trump, who serves as an advisor to her father, posted the picture of her with her son on Sunday, with the caption: "My 3!" "Again, for no other reason, say you don't care about these children at the border - I don't believe that, she probably does - but you should care that it looks tone-deaf to some people".

Then there are those horrifying reports of children being forcibly separated from their parents at the border.

Did the almost 1,500 immigrant children come with their parents? In most cases, that means parents who arrive with children stay in federal jails while their children are sent to HHS shelters.

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 previous year.

Enter a June 2014 online story by The Arizona Republic titled "First peek: Immigrant children flood detention center".

"He actually called the practice terrible".

Lawyers with the American Civil Liberties Union are in the midst of a lawsuit challenging the Trump administration's policy of separating parents and children.

HHS has said it has no legal responsibility to trace these children.

Trump foes made their own missteps in the debate.

President Trump reacted to the outrage in characteristic fashion a day later, blaming Democrats (falsely) for "the frightful law that separates children from parents once they cross the Border", and setting off even more outrage.

It's unclear why they resurfaced on social media, but Trump took to Twitter Tuesday to condemn Democrats for spreading false information about immigration. But Trump seized on the error. "The pictures are from 2014".

That legal standard is still in place, and it means that children can not be held in detention centers for more than 72 hours - even if they are with their parents, said Leon Fresco, former deputy assistant attorney general in charge of the Office of Immigration under President Obama. "Bipartisan Bill!" he wrote. Trump might have been referring to. The Republican-led majority has yet to take up significant immigration legislation in the House this session, although Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., has committed to holding votes this summer. But finding common ground remains hard. In normal circumstances, the photo is pretty innocuous, but due to reports that the United States government lost 1,500 migrant children who entered the U.S.at the Mexican border, it comes off as tone deaf. Between October and December 2017, HHS had found that out of 7,635 children it had handed over to sponsors, 6,075 were still there, 28 had fled, 5 had been deported, and 52 were living elsewhere, the AP reported. In some cases, sponsors simply didn't respond to the follow-up phone call, not surprising because many are themselves in the USA illegally and reluctant to speak to authorities.

"We do place kids with families that are themselves here illegally", he said, "so you could imagine that many of those would not choose to speak to a federal official calling them on the phone".

The reality is more complicated, and the blame can not be placed squarely on Democrats.
