Border policy fuels backlash against Trump — WHAT'S HAPPENING

Border policy fuels backlash against Trump — WHAT'S HAPPENING

While it's mostly been Democrats reacting to Nielsen's statement, some Republicans, including former First Lady Laura Bush, have publicly opposed the Trump administration's policy. On Tuesday, he said Democrats are the problem.

Microsoft is not working with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement or US Customs and Border Protection on any projects related to separating children from their families at the border, and contrary to some speculation, we are not aware of Azure or Azure services being used for this goal. They can't win on their awful policies, so they view them as potential voters!

Later, he declared during remarks at a hotel that he had no choice but to remove children from their parents at the border.

Typically, parents are sent to court, while children go to government facilities as the Trump administration carries out the new "zero tolerance" policy. "Now, we don't have to prosecute them, but then we're not prosecuting them for coming in illegally".

Rep. Michael Burgess of Pilot Point held a town hall in Denton Monday night, where he faced multiple questions about family separations.

Trump also falsely blamed Democrats for creating "crippling loopholes" that have resulted laws that force family separations at the border. Both are frequent critics of President Donald Trump and have been outspoken on other immigration issues. But Trump reiterated the accusation on Tuesday.

"Those kids inside who have been separated from their parents are already being traumatized", said Democratic Sen.

"This must not be who we are as a nation", Representative Jerrold Nadler said, one of seven members of congress from NY and New Jersey who met with five detainees inside the facility, including three who said they had young relatives removed from their care after seeking asylum at the border.

At the same time, the President appeared to suggest the practice could act as a deterrent for future migrants considering entering the U.S. with their children.

"We don't want people pouring into our country", he told Tuesday's gathering. "We operate according to some of the highest standards in the country". "These smugglers know these rules and regulations better than the people that drew them".

"If you don't have borders, you don't have a country!" he argued.

He said word got around during President Obama's tenure that those who would illegally try and cross the border with a minor would "given immunity from prosecution". "Maybe it's politically correct or maybe it's not".

Rather, on April 6, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a formal "zero tolerance" prosecution policy, ordering US attorneys to criminally prosecute everyone apprehended at the border.

"It's very unfortunate for these children that their parents chose to break the law, but young children should not be separated from their parents", he said in a press release.

Heartbreaking cries of youngsters calling for their parents in tears can be heard on the tape, reportedly released by a whistleblower at one of the border camps.

In their evening meeting, Trump and House Republicans were expected to discuss two bills scheduled for votes on Thursday.

At the end of last week, he suggested that he would not change the policy unless Democrats agreed to his other immigration demands.

"We have one chance to get it right".

Besides being a humanitarian disaster, we are going to be paying for and fixing Trump's colossal, racist fuck-up for a LONG time to come.

Mexico weighed in before Trump's speech, with a strong rebuke. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime.

On Tuesday, he revived his assertion that some countries are not sending their "best", and threatened to withdraw United States aid.

"It so challenges the conscience of our country that it must be changed and must be changed immediately, " she said during a news conference at a San Diego terminal that is connected to the airport in Tijuana, Mexico, by a bridge.

The Trump administration also ended a program previous year that was bringing every single one of the undocumented immigrants the program served to court.
