Mrs. Bush Rails Against 'Cruel' Border Separation Policy - Cortney O'Brien

Trump continued to cast blame on Democrats Monday, as he detoured from planned remarks on US space policy to defend his administration's policies.

"We do not want to separate parents from their children", Sessions said. "Not on my watch".

"We do not want to separate parents from their children", Sessions said.

Politicians and religious groups are among those to have criticised the "inhumane" policy, and the first lady - who last week returned to the public eye for the first time in nearly a month - has admitted she has found it hard to watch the events unfold.

Trump has repeatedly, falsely asserted that a law passed by Democrats is to blame for the family-separation policy. "Where is the outcry for the killings and crime being caused by gangs and thugs, including MS-13, coming into our country illegally?" "What has changed is that we no longer exempt entire classes of people who break the law", she told reporters at a White House briefing.

She and senator Jeff Flake of Arizona have sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar demanding more information about the new "zero-tolerance" policy. He said the U.S. has the worst immigration laws in the world.

Under the administration's new zero-tolerance policy, every adult caught crossing the border illegally is being prosecuted, and the children are being separated while their parents await their legal cases to play out.

In a rare intervention the first lady's spokeswoman said she wanted Republicans and Democrats to work together to achieve "successful immigration reform".

Trump blames Comey’s ‘minions’ for starting the Russian Federation investigation

"It's hard for me to enjoy Father's Day knowing what's happening to other children and families", he said.

In a third tweet on Monday, Trump wrote: "Children are being used by some of the worst criminals on earth as a means to enter our country". Some of the young immigrants being housed there are among the two thousand children who were separated from their parents while trying to cross the border. He was speaking at the White House while announcing an unrelated policy.

"It's heart-wrenching. You see what's going on there", Gidley said. "If you don't like families" being separated, you can tell DHS, "Stop doing it'".

Trump again blamed Democrats for the family separations on Monday, tweeting, "It is the Democrats (sic) fault for being weak and ineffective with Boarder (sic) Security and Crime".

Immigration is one of the most divisive, hot-button crises plaguing the Trump administration.

Over the weekend, millions of people shared the gone-viral photo taken by photographer John Moore, of a two-year-old girl crying and screaming while a US border agent detained her mother. "It is immoral. And it breaks my heart", Bush wrote, adding the images were "eerily reminiscent of the Japanese American internment camps of World War II, now considered to have been one of the most shameful episodes in US history".

The Democratic lawmakers said President Donald Trump's zero-tolerance policy goes too far.

Californian Democrat Representative Adam Schiff said the administration was "using the grief, the tears, the pain of these kids as mortar to build our wall".
