Sarah Huckabee Sanders Cites Bible As Reason To Detain Immigrant Children

Sanders is telling friends she will leave her post by year's end while her deputy, Raj Shah, has not yet determined when he will be leaving, CBS News reported, citing White House sources.

"Because it's the law and that's what the law states", Sanders said.

"It's not a policy change to enforce the law", Sanders said as the reporter explained the exact Trump administration policy that prompted the change.

But reporters including Acosta reminded Sanders that no one was forcing the administration to hold children captive, and that there is in fact no law forcing it to separate them from their parents.

Acosta pressed Sanders on the issue, asking how it could be a "moral policy to take children away from their parents" considering the potential "horror" that could be experienced by the families as a result.

Sanders, a devout Southern Baptist whose father is both a former Arkansas Governor and an ordainer minister, didn't predict how long she'll stay in the West Wing but said she asks the Almighty for help answering that question. "I love my job and am honored to work for @POTUS".

"It doesn't have to be the law", Acosta said. Whether Trump says "you're fired" or a staffer finally gets fed up and quits, the administration has been unable to keep positions filled, if they've filled them at all.

"Don't you have any empathy?" "I think the country's looks pretty good, and I'm glad to be a part of that process and I'm going to continue to do my job". Sarah, come on, seriously.

Sanders accused Karem of trying to gain more time on television. You're a parent of young children. "Don't you have any empathy for what they go through?"
