Kamala Harris, other Democratic lawmakers call on Kirstjen Nielsen to resign

Kamala Harris, other Democratic lawmakers call on Kirstjen Nielsen to resign

That is correct. But under USA protocol, if parents are jailed, their children are separated from them because the children aren't charged with a crime.

"Claiming these children and their parents are treated inhumanely is not true", DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Monday afternoon.

Border crossings briefly dropped after Trump took office in January 2017, but have since risen to levels seen during the administration of his Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama.

Traffickers and others can pose as families in order to game the system, Nielsen said, and they have become good at it.

Trump, in a string of Twitter comments, decried Europe's problems with mass immigration and vowed to control the flow of migrants into the United States. We do not want adults to bring children into this country unlawfully, placing them at risk. If the Democrats would sit down, instead of obstructing, we could have something done very quickly, good for the children, good for the country, good for the world.

Democrats have accused the president of effectively turning the children into political hostages to secure stricter immigration measures, such as funding for a U.S. -Mexico border wall. While Kelly himself once believed he stood between Trump and chaos, he has told at least one person close to him that he may as well let the president do what he wants, even if it leads to impeachment - at least this chapter of American history would come to a close.

The goal of human-interest reporting that pulls heartstrings is not to tell voters to reject the Trump administration's policy but rather to ensure that even those who support it do so fully aware of its effects.

Pelosi also tweeted to engage her followers in pushing for Nielsen's resignation. He insisted again that his family separation policy was the effect of "horrible laws" that the opposition party refused to agree to change. "That can not be the answer".

"We have a statutory responsibility that we take seriously to protect alien children", she said. The delegation visited Casa San Diego, a facility run by the Department of Health and Human Services in El Cajon, Calif. that houses immigrant children caught crossing the border with family members or alone.

Harris called Nielsen's lack of transparency "disqualifying".

No previous administration has interpreted this as requiring the separation of parents from their children, instead releasing families with court dates for immigration proceedings and various monitoring tactics. Asked if the recordings, along with pictures and more that have emerged in recent days, are an unintended outcome of the administration's approach, she said, "I think that they reflect the focus of those who post such pictures and narratives". "You look at what's happening in Europe, you look at what's happening in other places; we can't allow that to happen to the United States, not on my watch". "If you smuggle illegal aliens across an extraordinarily risky journey, we will prosecute you".

And once again, she told asylum seekers to show up at a legal port of entry.
