US President Donald Trump digs in heels on disturbing immigration policy

One of the bills offers an eventual pathway to citizenship for the approximately 1.8 million undocumented immigrants brought here as children, and House Republicans are trying to hammer out legislative language to end Trump's current policy of separating families. The Trump administration has indicated this policy was created to deter immigrants trying to enter the USA illegally.

This is the upshot of U.S. President Donald Trump's "zero-tolerance" policy at the Mexican border.

There is no USA law requiring that the children of immigrants entering the country illegally be separated from their parents.

While some Republicans working on this legislation have said it's important to address this issue in comprehensive immigration bills, other Republicans say the only realistic chance of fixing it is in a separate bill. "Mexico does nothing for us", charged Trump.

Mr. Trump has said he will sign either bill into law.

That leads to the children being locked up in shelters while the cases work themselves out, and caused a barrage of criticism for both leaders.

But the Trump administration is entirely responsible for its policy of separating families at the border.

But some worry the lack of a clear resolution could exacerbate an already tough situation as his party heads toward the mid-terms.

The US action has sparked outrage at home from both Trump's Democratic foes and his fellow Republicans and around the world, as well as concerns from even First Lady Melania Trump.

Maryland Senator Chris Van Hollen toured facilities in southern Texas where these children are being held, and said the enforcement of the policy is not working. Most are parents, but some are older siblings, aunts, uncles or grandparents.

The more conservative bill, moved by judiciary committee chairman Bob Goodlatte, would make it a criminal offence to overstay a visa in the United States; cut legal immigration by 25 per cent; and allow recipients of the now-cancelled Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program - which covered some people who were brought to the USA illegally as children - to remain in the United States on three-year renewable work visas.

Donald Trump, nervous Republicans scramble for legislative fix to family separation crisis
Under the Obama administration, such families were usually referred for civil deportation proceedings, not requiring separation. Amnesty International branded the action "nothing short of torture" and Apple's chief executive Tim Cook called it "inhumane".

There are 100 sites scattered across 17 states.

"Children must not be separated from their parents unless there is a real threat to the safety of the children or if the parents are involved in serious criminal behavior", said Harris, who otherwise supports Trump's policies, including building a border wall between Mexico and the United States.

The major change unveiled Tuesday would loosen rules that now limit the amount of time minors can be held to 20 days, according to a GOP source familiar with the measure.

Children could be separated from adults in the past if CPB agents suspected an adult wasn't really a child's parent - a proven problem - or was perhaps a smuggler or someone using the child to get out of detention faster.

Of course, the issue is that several weeks ago, under pressure from President Trump, the Departments of Homeland Security and Justice instituted a zero-tolerance policy for illegal entries into the country.

At the same time, many of those Republicans dared not stray too far from Trump and his agenda, given his popularity with his conservative base. Thus, since they are taken into custody as potential criminals, their children are not allowed to stay with them.

Steven Wagner, a Trump appointee at HHS, said on Tuesday, "I don't know how many separated kids have been placed or reunited with parents".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters he was reaching out to Democrats for bipartisan backing, since the proposal would need to reach a 60-vote threshold to advance in that chamber. "There's no need for anything else", Senator Schumer said.

Cue up the motto that President Harry Truman famously displayed on his Oval Office desk: "The buck stops here".

But a defiant Trump has vowed America will not become a "migrant camp".

He used the word "infest" to describe migrants coming to the U.S. illegally.
