Family separation policy starts dividing Republicans

Bush said the Trump administration policy led by Attorney General Jeff Sessions punishes children for their parents' decision to cross into the U.S.

Steve Bannon: "It's a crime to come across illegally, and children get separated". "If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you and that child will be separated from you as required by law".

Trump is scheduled to go to Capitol Hill on Tuesday at 5:30 pm to speak with House Republicans about immigration reform.

But Scaramucci noted on CNN Monday that Republicans control the House, Senate and presidency.

Mrs Trump "believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart", her spokeswoman said.

Trump has also pointed to Democratic lawmakers as responsible for changing "forced family breakup at the Border" and falsely blamed Democrats on Twitter and in front of the press for his own administration's policy. Nor did she mention the fact that, in many cases, these children are not part of a "family unit", but rather strangers to the adults they cross the border with, adults who pretend to be parents in the hope America will "catch and release" them into the country - because catching and releasing them is the only way to keep these families together.

'Congress passed the law that it is a crime to enter this country illegally.

Salman Khan to shoot for Race 4 before Dabangg 3?
Further talking about Salman's four Rs 100 crore grossers in flat three days, he tweeted, "Salman versus Salman - first 3 days". Going by the reviews, Race 3 is one of Salman Khan's worst films ever, but the 52-year-old actor is unfazed by the verdict.

But while her comments may run counter to the president's, some have said they don't go almost far enough to counter false statements made by the White House and merely echo an inaccurate claim that Democrats are responsible for the separations.

The Rev. Franklin Graham, a longtime Trump ally, called the policy "disgraceful". "If we are truly that country, then it is our obligation to reunite these detained children with their parents - and to stop separating parents and children in the first place". The House is expected to vote this week on a bill pushed by conservatives that may not have enough support to pass, and a compromise measure with key proposals supported by the president.

The policy has divided Republicans, with its defenders pointing out that children are routinely taken from parents accused of crimes.

This pressure is coming as some White House officials have tried to distance themselves from the policy.

In a tweet on Saturday he urged Democrats to work with Republicans to create new legislation. In a searing op-ed published by The Washington Post Sunday, Bush said the policy was "cruel" and "immoral" and compared it to Japanese-American internment camps in the USA during World War II.

To Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the administration is "using the grief, the tears, the pain of these kids as mortar to build our wall". As a USA representative, he later spearheaded opposition in Congress to a bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform effort.

Previous administrations made exceptions to such prosecutions for adults travelling with minor children, but the Trump administration has said it will not do so. This is why we need more Republicans elected in November.
