Today in Trump's Prison Camps for Children: White House Ignores Their Cries

Today in Trump's Prison Camps for Children: White House Ignores Their Cries

He has cast blame for the separations on Democrats, although his fellow Republicans control both chambers in Congress and his own administration implemented the current policy of strict adherence to immigration laws.

This means parents are sent for federal court proceedings and separated from their children, who can not be jailed under USA law. On Tuesday, the attorneys general of 21 states called on Sessions in a letter to stop endangering children by separating them from their families. But the hows and the wherefores were left vague. Readers may recall that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services had somehow lost track of around 1,500 undocumented immigrant children earlier this year, a screw-up so monumental that it prompted the department to spinelessly claim that it is not "legally responsible" for these minors.

"I don't want them to stop my father", another child cries. I say it as someone who retains belief in DEMOCRACY and decency. The child is heard telling the consular worker to call her aunt, whose number she has memorised, to inform where she is.

The unanimous opposition among the state's GOP lawmakers showed that Republicans would not buy Trump's arguments that his separation policy is required by federal law and is the fault of Democrats.

"Mr. President, you alone can fix it", said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, pulling a pen out of his jacket and offering to let Trump borrow it to sign a presidential order. The House is considering two bills. "We're going to try and see if we can fix it".

Theirs is narrow legislation proposed by Senator Ted Cruz that would allow detained families to stay together in custody while expediting their deportation proceedings.

The national outcry over the separations has roiled midterm election campaigns, emboldening Democrats while putting Republicans on the defensive.

Later addressing the National Federation of Independent Businesses, Trump alleged that as a result of the Democrat-supported loopholes in the federal laws, most illegal immigrant families and minors from Central America who arrive unlawfully at the border, can not be detained together or removed together, but only released.

When will these parents be reunited with their children?

"We have added family residential centers as an approved use of the $7 billion of border technology funding included in the bill", said a House Republican source familiar with the compromise bill drafting.

Top conservatives, including key Trump allies, have introduced bills to keep the migrant families together.

Since children can not be sent to the facilities where their parents are held, they are separated from them.

And it aligns the Republicans with the entire New Jersey Democratic delegation, which already has criticized the president and demanded an end to separating families.

"We don't need legislation", said Rep. Elijah Cummings.

Every Democrat in the Senate is prepared to help pass a bill that would put an end to these draconian practices, but absolutely no Republican is willing to do the same. Trump, though, appears to be looking for a way out of the bad optics and bad politics - without looking like he's compromising his principles. "If other things happen we'll cross those bridges with when we get to it".

The House is to vote later this week on two bills that address broader immigration issues to protect young immigrant "Dreamers", who have been living in the US illegally since childhood, from deportation and fund Trump's border wall. But after signaling Monday that it would oppose any fix aimed exclusively at addressing that issue, the White House said Tuesday it was reviewing the emergency legislation being introduced by Cruz to keep migrant families together.

The Republican Study Committee, a group of conservative lawmakers, was expected to meet Wednesday afternoon to decide on their position, but RSC Chairman Mark Walker, a Republican from North Carolina, said that members want Trump to be more clear about where he stands.
