First lady Melania Trump 'hates' to see families separated

His tweets came as senior Republicans continued to call into question the hardline policy. She has been criticized for her policy of allowing in refugees.

Trump has tried to blame the practice on a law passed by Democrats that doesn't exist. "Instead they were separated from their children & have received no update on their children since being detained".

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen defended the department's immigration enforcement practices Sunday, tweeting, "We do not have a policy of separating families at the border". Speaking at a meeting of the National Sheriffs' Association in New Orleans Monday, she rejected criticism accusing DHS of inhuman and immoral actions. "So if they don't like that law, they should change it", she added. The move, announced last month by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has already resulted in a massive spike in children being separated from their parents.

The handout recommends that parents call ICE, call the ORR Parent Hotline, or email the two organizations to locate their children.

In March, the US State Department had announced a $5 million reward for information leading to the arrest or capture of Fazlullah. Pentagon officials declined to comment at this time on whether the strike was successful.

Former chief strategist Stephen Bannon: "We ran on a policy - very simply - stop mass illegal immigration and limit legal immigration, get our sovereignty back to help our workers, and so he went to a zero tolerance policy". Adults apprehended after crossing the border outside an official port of entry are to be arrested and prosecuted under Sessions' decree, which leads to their children being removed. "Look, the elites in the city - and this ties into Korea; this ties into everything that took place this week - the elites in the permanent political class in this city want to manage situations to bad outcomes".

A top adviser to Trump said Sunday that the president was not using the family separation as leverage to force Democrats to come to the table on other policy disputes, rebutting an unnamed White House official quoted by The Washington Post. Bush made some of the strongest comments yet from a Republican.

"This is, I think a flawless example of why our borders need to be secure", an officer at the scene said. But she said the images of children getting taken from their parents broke her heart. "These images are eerily reminiscent of the Japanese American internment camps of World War II, now considered robbery one of the most shameful episodes in United States history", Bush said.

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

"The President should immediately end this family separation policy", Sen. "Period", Nielsen tweeted. In another tweet, she blamed "misreporting" by the media, lawmakers and immigration advocacy groups for being "irresponsible and unproductive" in its reporting on the controversial issue.

Former First Lady Laura Bush attacked the Trump administration's policy that has led to almost 2,000 immigrant children being separated from their parents.

In a rare comment, Mrs Trump spoke against the Trump administration's harsh policy, saying the U.S. needs to be "a country that governs with heart".

In a Father's Day demonstration on Sunday, seven Democrat members of Congress from NY and New Jersey joined hundreds of protesters outside an immigration detention facility in New Jersey to protest the separations.
