Should DHS separate families crossing the border?

Homeland Security chief defends separating families at border

During the White House press briefing, Kirstjen Nielsen, the secretary for Homeland Security, made several false claims about border security, according to Julia Ainsley, National Security Justice reporter for NBC.

"President Trump has said this lawlessness can not continue", he said. Laura Bush, the wife of former President George Bush, called the policy "cruel" and "immoral" in a Washington Postop-ed published online Sunday. "It is unimaginable that faith leaders even have to say that these policies are antithetical to the teachings of Christ".

She claimed "misinformation" was being spread about the policy, which is that all people caught crossing the border illegally are prosecuted and thus families are separated. The Father's Day march was organized by Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas, who is challenging Republican Sen. While DHS continues to oversee prosecution of the parents after this point, their children then become the responsibility of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The nation's homeland security chief insisted Sunday that immigrant children are not being separated from their parents at the border - despite the Trump administration defending its policy and eyewitness accounts of government-snatched boys and girls being held in cages at a private detention center in Texas. Nielsen says agents are not acting cruelly, but are enforcing the laws passed by Congress.

That has not stopped what has now become a wave of criticism for the DHS policy of applying the law.

Democrats have been leading the charge.

Trump "doesn't like the process", Sanders said, and he wants to see Congress fix the law.

Current asylum policy, Nielsen argued, was unfair and set up a magnet for migrant children to try to enter the country illegally.

Rapper XXXTentacion shot in Deerfield Beach
A judge recently ruled the rapper could remain free on house arrest, with exception made to accommodate for his touring schedule. The Broward County Sheriff later tweeted that they had responded to "an incident regarding a shooting" in Deerfield Beach.

The William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act was signed by President George W. Bush in 2008, and ensured that children who arrive at the US-Mexico border unaccompanied are "exempt from prompt return to their home country", unless those countries are Canada or Mexico.

Nielsen said, incorrectly, that the Trump administration is simply enforcing the law by separating the families, and is "no longer [exempting] entire classes of people who break the law". This is a policy made exclusively by this administration, and you can stop it right now. "But President Trump is leaning into that pretty hard".

But while Yoder highlights areas of agreement with Trump about other immigration concerns, his language is less mealy-mouthed blaming both sides than other rank-and-file Republicans' (like this from Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R)).

The skirmish is an escalation of the dispute embroiling the Trump administration and members of Congress, including some Republicans, over its policy causing the separation of thousands of migrant families crossing the border in recent months.

"The message is that no one is exempt from immigration law".

"There's different elements of the government that don't understand what's really going on".

"I think she should resign", Pelosi said.
