Difficult Merkel allies mull next move in German migrant row

Yet when confronted by Senate Democrats later that month, Kelly dialed his comments back, saying children and parents would only be separated if illness or other extenuating circumstances demanded it, per CNN.

- MSNBC (@MSNBC) June 18, 2018Trump has repeatedly blamed Democrats for family separations, saying that their lack of action on immigration has resulted in what he's referred as these "horrible laws". "Tell them to start thinking about the people devastated by Crime coming from illegal immigration". "We will not apologize for doing our job", said Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

"This is not happening because of the "Democrats" law' as the White House has claimed", she said during an event in NY on Monday. But "the European project is at risk", and "we have a particular responsibility", she said. "No more free passes, no more get out of jail free cards".

On Sunday, leaders in Trump's own party and Democrats called for the end of the president's practice of separating children from their parents when families arrive at US borders seeking entry. The AfD's anti-migrant policy is becoming increasingly popular in Germany as several high-profile murders by new arrivals have alarmed voters. On Friday Trump said "I hate the children being taken away", and denied it was his administration's policy.

Video game addiction is now being recognised as a mental health condition
Video game addiction has become the latest mental health disorder to be named by the World Health Organization . One of the most cunning offenders? One-in-three people worldwide play some form of free-to-play screen game.

The administration contends it is bound by law, a 2016 court consent decree known as the Flores settlement, which requires that unaccompanied children be held by the government for only 20 days.

"Children are being used by some of the worst criminals on earth as a means to enter our country", Trump wrote. "What they want is a radical open-border policy that lets everyone out into the interior of this country with virtually no documentation whatsoever", he said. "They've chosen not to do that", he contended.

He went on to suggest that children were being used as pawns by "the worst criminals on earth" to enter the US illegally and then claimed he wanted to protect the USA from the crime happening in countries south of the USA border.

Though the policy change that led to children being taken from the arms of their parents at the border is now a couple of months old, attention to the issue has become intense only in the past week or so, and now many Republicans from outside government are speaking out against it. These images are eerily reminiscent of the Japanese American internment camps of World War II, now considered to have been one of the most shameful episodes in USA history.

Seehofer's "migration master plan", which Merkel last week refused to endorse, would see asylum seekers arriving at Germany's borders turned away if they have no identification papers, have already had an asylum claim rejected in Germany, or are already registered in another country in the EU - proposals that rights group say contravene European and global agreements.

The survey turns up the pressure on Merkel, who has faced a backlash for allowing into Germany more than one million people fleeing war and misery in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere since 2015.
