Stephen Miller Says ‘Simple’ Decision To Separate Parents From Kids

"If the Democrats would sit down instead of obstructing, we could have something done very quickly".

"As a matter of principle, the secretary-general believes that refugees and migrants should always be treated with respect and dignity, and in accordance with existing worldwide law", said United Nations spokesman Stephane Dujarric.

During one recent six-week period, the government said almost 2,000 minors were separated from their parents or adult guardians - a figure that only stoked the firestorm. "Family unity must be preserved", he added.

Photos went viral over the weekend showing children being held in fenced enclosures at a Texas facility.

Underscoring the emotional tension, first lady Melania Trump, who has tended to stay out of contentious policy debates, waded into the issue.

Melania Trump has spoken out against her husband's border policy.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We're stuck with these awful laws.

Iran beats Morocco with 95th-minute own goal
Morocco coach Herve Renard confirmed he will be without winger Nabil Derar, who is making a gradual recovery from a calf injury. Iran pulled off one of the first shocking victories of the World Cup on Friday thanks to a disastrous header in stoppage time.

The event in the city of Elizabeth on Sunday came as news stories highlighting the family separations intensified political pressure on the White House, even from some of President Donald Trump's fellow Republicans.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) called on Trump to end family separation during an appearance Friday on CNN. You can send the parents and children back together.

Bush compared the Trump Administration's policy to the internment of the Japanese during World War II. The policy not only mandates the criminal prosecution of asylum-seekers who illegally cross the border, but also controversially requires the separation of children from their parents, which is not legally required. In the meantime, Donald Trump is holding USA immigration policy hostage in the hopes of funding a border wall that recent polls show nearly 70% of Americans don't want to fund with taxpayer dollars.

There wasn't a big fuss last month when Kelly said a new policy separating children and parents could be a "tough deterrent" for immigration and refused to call it cruel in an NPR interview.

Hillary Clinton delivers the keynote address at the 8th Annual Elly Award luncheon, after being one three women receiving this year's award, June 18, 2018, in NY.

'As a mother, as a Catholic, as somebody who's got a conscience, ' she said on NBC's 'Meet the Press, ' I will tell you that nobody likes this policy'. "And it can be taken care of quickly, beautifully, and we'll have safety". Her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, said she believes "we need to be a country that follows all laws", but also one "that governs with heart". "It is immoral. And it breaks my heart", she wrote in a guest column for the Washington Post Sunday.

Speaking at a women's forum award ceremony on Monday, Clinton also said Trump's claim that the Democrats were to blame for the separations was an "outright lie".
