Stop breaking up families at the border

It passed unanimously in Congress and was signed by Republican President George W. Bush.

Critics have expressed outrage at these policies, sharing upsetting stories of parents saying they had no idea they were being separated, of overcrowded conditions in detention centers, and, in at least one case, a parent being overwhelmed with emotion and committing suicide after having his toddler and wife separated from him.

"What the administration has chose to do is to separate children from their parents to try to send a message that, if you cross the border with children, your children are going to be ripped away from you", she said on Face the Nation on CBS.

President Trump's administration has been under scrutiny in recent weeks after instituting a policy that separates immigrants coming to the county illegally from their children.

These are just some of the stories of families who have been separated, a number of them as a result of Attorney General Jeff Sessions' May announcement that the Trump administration was enforcing a "zero tolerance" policy toward people entering the US without authorization. That means that parents were taken to federal jails, while their children were sent to shelters.

"In no other context are we being asked to detain children with parents who are facing criminal charges".

A chaotic scene unfolded Sunday morning as seven Democratic members of Congress sought entry to the Elizabeth Contract Detention Facility in New Jersey.

Stephen Colbert slams Jeff Sessions for citing Bible in border policy
Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., o or "something more moderate", and asked whether he'd sign "either one". Those verses , Mather said, seem to run contrary to the policy Sessions was defending.

He also accused Democrats of "forcing the breakup of families at the border" because they are pushing their own "cruel" uncompromising legislative agenda.

On Twitter, Trump addressed what he specifically wants in new legislation including "full funding for the Wall;" an end to a diversity visa lottery and certain categories of family-based migration; and a shift toward "merit based immigration" for skilled workers. "Go for it! WIN!"

Other Trump allies are unapologetic.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions asserted that the administration's "zero tolerance" policy is somehow biblically mandated.

The biblical underpinnings have been challenged by religious leaders.

When the family separation policy was announced last month, White House chief of staff John Kelly told NPR, "They're not bad people". Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, president of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, issued a statement on Wednesday criticizing the government's immigration policies.

Steve Bannon, President Trump's former White House senior adviser, said Sunday a wall at the southern border would solve the problem of separating children from parents who illegally enter the United States.

She added, "Let me just tell you that nobody likes seeing babies ripped from their mother's arms, from their mother's wombs, frankly, but we have to make sure that DHS's laws are understood through the sound byte culture we live in". USA border authorities are executing the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy toward undocumented immigrants.

California Senator Dianne Feinstein has the support of 43 senators, all Democrats, for a bill in her chamber.

O'Rourke said Sunday he's working with colleagues to introduce a bill this week in the House.

The House is expected to vote on Wednesday on an immigration bill pushed by conservatives that may not have enough support to pass, but there is also a compromise measure that includes key proposals supported by the president. The legislation wouldn't explicitly forbid the incarceration of children alongside their parents. "The message is that no one is exempt from immigration law".

Rep. Ben Ray Lujon, D-N.M., said Trump "could pick up the phone and stop it today".

In an effort to rebut criticism of the administration, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Sunday repeated in a tweet the department's view: "We do not have a policy of separating families at the border".
