Trump will meet with House Republicans next week to discuss the issue just days after his comments during an impromptu Fox News interview on the White House driveway almost derailed the planned House vote, according to a House GOP official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the plans ahead of an official announcement. She also called for the administration to immediately stop separating children from parents who enter the country seeking asylum at legal crossings, unless they are being abused or trafficked.

Instead, all adults are now criminally prosecuted when caught crossing the border illegally.

The government said on Friday that 1,995 children were separated from 1,940 adults at the U.S. -Mexico border between April 19 and May 31, as the Trump administration implements stricter border enforcement policies. We should, and I support the president's proposals for border security.

President Donald Trump makes remarks at the Prison Reform Summit at The White House in Washington, D.C., May 18, 2018. "I don't see a reason to spend the money doing that", Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said in an interview Friday.

Rep. Beto O'Rourke, who is running for Senate in Texas against Republican Sen. "I hope to produce the outrage and the public pressure to force those in power to do the right thing". "And it's on all of us, not just the Trump administration, ' he said on CNN's 'State of the Union" on Sunday.

"Stephen Miller: Congrats, the separation policy that you sold to your boss Mr. Trump will result in images that will crater you both".

President Trump continues criticisms of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey; reaction on 'America's News HQ'.

The administration says the changes are necessary to deter immigrants from coming here illegally.

Ramadan is sacred to Muslims because it is during that month that tradition says the Koran was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed. Notably, Islamic calendar follows the lunar cycle, a new month begins with the sighting of the moon on 29th of every month.

The president is facing mounting anger of the policy and a crisis he has continued to blame the Democrats for.

Sessions and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders have defended the policy as a sound, and biblical, decision to enforce the law.

Almost two thousand children were taken away from their own families as they reached the southern American border seeking help.

President Trump on Saturday doubled down on his tough rhetoric on MS-13 gang members, while accusing Democrats of "protecting" members of the violent gang as they "push for open borders".

First lady Melania Trump is wading into the emotional controversy over policies enacted by her husband's administration that have increased the number of migrant children being separated from their parents. Persons who violate the law of our nation are subject to prosecution. This is why we need more Republicans elected in November.

Conway, meanwhile, claimed Democratic lawmakers are holding up funding that would allow the expansion of family detention centers.

The attempt to gain advantage from a practice the American Academy of Pediatrics describes as causing children "irreparable harm" sets up a high-stakes gambit for Trump, whose political career has long benefited from harsh rhetoric on immigration.

"Nobody likes" breaking up families and "seeing babies ripped from their mothers' arms", said Kellyanne Conway, a counsellor to the President.

In a roughly six-week period, almost 2,000 minors were separated from adults at the border, according to The Associated Press.
