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.

"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".
