No need to justify separating kids, parents at border: Bannon

MISSION TX- JUNE 12 A boy and father from Honduras are taken into custody by U.S. Border Patrol agents near the U.S.-Mexico Border

This is why we need more Republicans elected in November. "I hope to produce the outrage and the public pressure to force those in power to do the right thing".

Tony Suarez, a Latino pastor who has informally advised Trump, tweeted, "God have mercy on those who seem so nonchalant to the plight of children being separated from their parents".

In a rare statement on a policy issue, first lady Melania Trump weighed in through her spokeswoman on the immigration crisis taking place at America's borders. The separations were not broken down by age, and they included separations for illegal entry, immigration violations or possible criminal conduct by the adult.

According to NBC News, 1,995 children have been separated from their parents during a roughly six-week period under the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy, where children are removed from their parents' custody when the Department of Homeland Security prosecutes them for entering the country illegally.

Trump's trusted advisor then called on Congress to have a larger discussion surrounding family separation. Almost 2,000 immigrant children were separated from parents during six weeks in April and May, according to the Justice Department. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said Sunday that the number "may well be higher" than that.

"The administration shows no sign of backing down from its policy of separating children from their parents despite powerful new condemnation from faith leaders", Tom Jawetz, vice president for immigration policy at progressive group Center for American Progress, told Agence France-Presse (AFP).

On Saturday, Trump was more direct: "Democrats can fix their forced family breakup at the Border by working with Republicans on new legislation, for a change!"

"What the administration is doing is they're using the grief, the tears, the pain of these kids as mortar to build their wall", Schiff said. "Go for it! WIN!" The bad blood between the Trump administration and media spilled over to an extended pow-wow the President had on Friday morning on the White House lawns, in course of which he claimed he too hated to see children being separated from their parents and blamed the Democrats for the law that allowed immigration officials to do it. When she reached the Texas border with her 11-year-old son in May, he was taken from her by border agents, she said.

Trump is expected to speak to House Republicans directly about immigration and other matters in a meeting on Tuesday ahead of the planned Thursday votes.

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon bombastically returned to the spotlight and didn't mince any words in his appearance on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday.

The new figures are for people who tried to enter the US between official border crossings. Rev. Franklin Graham, who's typically a Trump ally, told Christian Broadcasting Network that it's "disgraceful, it's awful, to see families ripped apart, and I don't support that one bit".

To voice your opinion regarding family separations and asylum for domestic abuse survivors, call the Department of Justice's main comment line at 202-353-1555.

"Trump is literally holding children hostage to get his unpopular border wall", she writes.

California Senator Dianne Feinstein has the support of 43 senators, all Democrats, for a bill in her chamber. But there is no law mandating that children be separated from their parents.

House Republican leaders are offering two immigration measures - a hard-line draft and written legislation billed as a compromise between the moderate and conservative factions of the party.

"We have laws about asylum, people can come to this country and they can request asylum if they're fleeing violence in their home country, and the price of trying to save yourself and the lives of your family should not be the separation of your family", King told Portland-based CBS affiliate WGME on Friday.

Barletta said he has compassion for the children caught up in the immigration debate.
