America is better than Trump's cruel immigration policies

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

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.

"Dems must agree to Wall and new Border Protection for good of country ..."

The photos were taken by The Associated Press in 2014, when President Barack Obama was in office.

-"This is happening right now, and the only debate that matters is how we force our government to get these kids back to their families as fast as humanly possible".

However, former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau, who pulled down his tweet linking the pictures to Trump still took a slam at the current administration with his correction.

The photos of the youths lying on a mat inside a wire cage began appearing online over the weekend after reports said the federal government "lost track" of almost 1,500 immigrant children at the end of 2017.

Advocates note that many families attempting to enter the US are seeking asylum from gangs and criminal activities in their home countries, and as such are not breaking the law.

What's more, Democrats aren't wholly responsible for either policy. HHS decided 792 of those cases merited more attention and referred them to the National Call Center.

WH lawyer, Kelly speak before Russia meetings
The request for the latest documents are the latest in a series of subpoenas to the Justice Department for sensitive information. But it seems that even before he became president, people around the world knew that Donald Trump was a man who could be bought.

Proposed by candidate Romney in a January 2012 Republican debate, the idea was to inspire undocumented immigrants to voluntarily leave the country after making it much more hard for them to be hired for work.

Liberals unloaded on the First Daughter Sunday, bizarrely accusing her of disrespecting Memorial Day while suggesting she didn't care about the "children of immigrants".

McCain said that, to her, was the real outrage. "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".

Marc Short, White House Director Of Legislative Affairs, joins Judy Woodruff to discuss President Trump's agenda, including a potential deal with the huge Chinese tech firm ZTE, the financial effects of the GOP tax cut, reports that migrant children are being separated from their parents and abused, and GOP divisions in the House of Representatives. During those two months a total of about 8,400 unaccompanied minors were caught on the southwest border.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions told the country the administration would start systematically separating children from their parents at the border, no matter if they came seeking asylum from certain death in their home countries.

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.

In a statement, Kenneth Wolfe, a spokesman for HHS' Administration for Children and Families, said that the agency has "an existing network of approximately 100 shelters in 14 states" and that "additional temporary housing is only sought as a last resort when current locations are reaching capacity".

"The Obama administration did not do that, no".

Wendy Young, president of the advocacy group Kids in Need of Defense, said Homeland Security is "injecting a law enforcement approach into this system", one that will strain HHS bed space.
