Trump and Sessions can end immigrant family separations without Congress' help

Melania Trump speaks out about migrants

Juan Vargas, a Democrat from southern California, shouted as Trump exited the meeting. "There were occasionally instances where you would find a separated family - maybe like one every six months to a year - and that was usually because there had been some actual individualized concern that there was a trafficking situation or that the parent wasn't actually the parent".

Later on Tuesday, after the Trumping meeting with the GOP House members, The Republican Main Street Caucus, chaired by Rep. Rodney Davis said in a statement, "Since the beginning of this debate, Main Street members have been committed to finding a permanent solution for DACA recipients and adequate funding for border security that will prevent risky drugs, illegal guns, and criminals from flowing through our country".

The other is a compromise bill that would end family separations, protect so-called Dreamer immigrants brought to the country illegally as children, pay for boosted border security, and curtail legal immigration. The President made clear tonight that a solution addressing these growing issues is long overdue.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday continued his staunch defense of zero-tolerance in the handling of illegal immigrants and charged that Democrats want aliens to "infest" the country because they see them as future voting allies.

Kelly went on to say that most undocumented Central Americans are "not criminals".

A second Republican lawmaker involved in defending the party's majority this fall said he was frustrated with the lack of guidance coming from the White House.

"The Obama administration, the Bush administration all separated families", Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told reporters at the White House on Monday.

They chanted "shame!" repeatedly at the woman who has become the frontline defender of the Trump administration's widely condemned practice of taking kids from their parents.

As Corey Lewandowski, who works for Mike Pence's PAC, told The New York Times: "People don't turn out to say thank you".

Mr Trump met behind closed doors with several members of his party earlier this week, with insiders reporting he was aware of the political damage the border policy was causing.

The recording, obtained by not-for-profit news organisation ProPublica, is reportedly of 10 Central American children who were separated from their parents at the USA border last week.

On Wednesday, he claimed the Democrats "won't give us the votes to pass good immigration legislation".

Fox Is Said to Lean Toward Starting Negotiations on Comcast Bid
In pre-market trading, Fox shares rose 5.4% to $47.11, Comcast's were marginally lower, while Disney's rose by 1.3% to $107.50. The move comes after Comcast launched a rival offer for most of Fox's film and television holdings.

But Democratic leaders have pushed back.

White House spokesman Raj Shah said the president "spoke to the House Republican conference on a range of issues".

Calling for an immediate fix, Schumer added: "The president can end this crisis with the flick of his pen, and he needs to do so now".

He called on Trump to "revise his policies on this".

And he rejected outright narrow legislation that would stop family separations and do nothing more - confirming that House Republicans would tie the fate of potentially hundreds or thousands more separated families to broader and more controversial legislation on DACA, the long-term DHS detention of families and more.

Fact: There is no federal law that stipulates that children and parents be separated at the border, no matter how families entered the United States.

The Mexican government joined in the condemnation of the separation of families, with foreign secretary Luis Videgaray saying the nation did not support illegal immigration but "cannot remain indifferent in the face of something that clearly represents a violation of human rights".

That's not true. No law says families must be separated.

"The children will be taken care of - put into foster care or whatever", Kelly said.

The separations began after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced in early April that all immigrants apprehended while crossing the U.S. -Mexico border illegally should be criminally prosecuted.

However, immigration advocates have documented instances in recent months of parents deported to Central America while their children are left behind in U.S. foster care.
