Republicans turn on Trump's 'cruel' border policy

Melania Trump ‘hates’ separating migrant kids from parents

Trump's administration has come under fire for its zero-tolerance policy of prosecuting any adult who crosses the border illegally and separating them from their children.

In his interview with Blitzer, Short said the law requires the administration to separate children from their parents when they cross into the country illegally.

"Democrats are the problem", Trump tweeted Tuesday morning.

A coalition of Democratic attorneys general demanded Tuesday that the Trump administration end a "zero tolerance" policy that has resulted in children being separated from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border.

McCain tweeted Monday night that the administration has the power to rescind this policy and "should do so now".

"I hate the children being taken away", he told reporters Friday, the day after his administration said it had taken nearly 2,000 children away from their parents in a six-week period that ended in May.

In another tweet on Tuesday, Trump accused Democrats of letting illegal immigrants, including gang members, "pour into and infest" the USA to court their votes. Crime in Germany is way up.

"We want to end the border crisis by finally giving us the legal authorities and the resources to detain and remove illegal immigrant families all together and bring them back to their country", he said.

Attorneys at the hearings said the immigrants had brought two dozen boys and girls with them to the US, and the judge replied that he didn't know what would happen to their children.

"If you don't have Borders, you don't have a Country! Don't wait until after the election because you are going to lose!"

So far, 2,000 children have been separated from their families since the United States began enforcing a "zero-tolerance" policy at the border.

"It's very unfortunate for these children that their parents chose to break the law, but young children should not be separated from their parents", he said in a press release.

Under the policy, all unlawful crossings are referred for prosecution - a process that moves adults to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service and sends many children to facilities run by the Department of Health and Human Services. "I think that what's happening is inhumane, it needs to stop", Cook told the Irish Times. The Pulitzer Prize-winning news outlet ProPublica released audio from inside a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility, in which children estimated to be between the ages of 4 and 10 years old are heard crying "Mama" and "Papi" after being separated from their parents.

Earlier, Mr Trump said on Twitter that people should be wary of what he called the cultural change caused by migrants in Europe. "These children did not make the choice to cross the border and shouldn't be punished for it", she said.

With the volume of the wailing shrill, and coming from multiple kids, a US Border Patrol agent can be heard saying in Spanish: "well, we have quite an orchestra here".

House Republicans scrambled to update their approach ahead of a visit from President Donald Trump to discuss a broader immigration overhaul that is to be voted on this week.

One House Republican in a swing district, Rep. Mike Coffman of Colorado, said he's willing to endorse the Feinstein bill if that's what it takes.
