  • Democrats, activists rally against Trump's family separation policy

Nielsen answered by calling the USA a "country of compassion" and then pointed out the 10,000 of the 12,000 children in care of Health and Human Services who she said had arrived to the U.S. as unaccompanied minors.

The family separation issue has emerged as one of the most inflammatory issues in a legislative fight to pass immigration reform. Former first lady Laura Bush said that as a resident of a border state, she appreciates the need to protect the nation's boundaries.

"Sudden and unexpected family separation, such as separating families at the border, can add to that stress, leading to emotional trauma in children", it read.

"It is one of the reasons the American people elected President Donald Trump, and that was to end the lawlessness at our southern border". Some say the separation of families is a byproduct of properly enforcing the law, while others say it serves as a deterrent for other parents.

A new policy, unveiled by Attorney General Jeff Sessions in April, calls for "zero-tolerance" for immigrants who illegally enter the USA along the Mexican border.

"These children have been traumatized on their trip up to the border, and the first thing that happens is we take away the one constant in their life that helps them buffer all these disgusting experiences", Kraft said on CNN Monday.

Harris cited, in particular, Nielsen's claim on Twitter Sunday evening denying that the Homeland Security Department had a policy of separating families at the border. We give them meals, we give them education, we give them medical care. "I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our global boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel", Bush wrote.

The crisis has centered primarily around a Trump administration policy to detain undocumented child migrants in facilities separate from their parents.

It added that the Aquarius "is still waiting for definitive instructions regarding the port of safety". Last week, Salvini said Rome should increase its deportations of migrants .

Hours earlier, speaking at a national sheriff's confab in New Orleans, Nielsen said, "We do not have the luxury of pretending that all individuals coming to this country as a family unit are in fact a family". I would thank them both for their concerns.

Administration officials are quick to note that Sessions' policy makes no mention of separating families.

Despite children being accompanied by their parents when they entered the country, children who are separated from their parents are being housed at shelters for unaccompanied children.

Nielsen said that for those seeking asylum at ports of entry, the Trump administration has "continued the policy from previous administrations".

"If you cross the border unlawfully. we will prosecute you", Sessions said at the time. Is this the best way to handle families entering the US illegally, seeking asylum? That's when they were separated.

There is no law that requires parents be separated from their children at the border.

"DHS will faithfully execute the laws enacted by Congress, as we are sworn to do", she emoted.

When asked whether the Trump administration had taken a more hardline stance on immigration in order to send a message - as Attorney General Jeff Sessions has previously said - Nielsen responded that she "find [s] that offensive".
