Agents searched people before taking them in vans to a processing centre.

"Stop this inhumane, barbaric policy, rescind your actions, take responsibility for it", Pelosi said in San Diego, according to KABC. "They're not put in jail, of course".

"It is inconsistent with our American values to separate these children from their parents", Ms Collins said on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday.

The separations stem from a policy that turns all cases of people trying to enter the country illegally over for criminal prosecution.

The former first lady zeroed in on Trump's repeated false claims that legislation passed by Democrats is to blame for the policy his administration is enforcing. Carl Anthony, a first ladies historian and author in Los Angeles, said it's rare but not unprecedented for a majority of all living first ladies to weigh in similarly on political and catastrophic events.

Michelle Obama joined her fellow former first lady Laura Bush Monday in criticizing the hard-line Trump administration immigration policy that has led to families being separated at the border.

Two-thirds of Americans oppose a policy that has led to more than 2,000 children being separated from their parents at the USA border, and Republicans were the only group polled who support it. Democrats, meanwhile, stepped up their opposition to the policy, describing it as "evil". "It is evil." Bracing for more child arrivals, the government plans to build camps at military bases in Texas. With the adult detained, any minors accompanying that person are taken away.

The children are only allowed two hours a day for outdoor activities and spend the rest of their days inside a former Walmart . He did not say whether Casa Padre has housed any members of the violent Central American street gang MS-13.

President Trump on Monday tweeted a challenge to Democrats, saying they should back GOP immigration bills aimed at fixing "the world's worst immigration laws".

Melania Trump released a statement on June 17 expressing her heartbreak over the desperate crisis created by little children being separated from their parents at the southern border under orders from the Trump administration. Her spokeswoman says that Mrs. Trump believes "we need to be a country that follows all laws", but also one "that governs with heart". "This administration has a simple message - If you cross the border illegally, we will prosecute you". "Don't wait until after the election because you are going to lose!"

A climbdown on this issue would represent more than a huge embarrassment for the President.

The family separations are the result of Mr Trump's "zero tolerance" policy that arrests all adults who are caught trying to enter the U.S. illegally, including those seeking asylum. "She simply saw it as the right thing to do in a world that can be arbitrary, unkind and even cruel", writes Bush.

High-profile Republicans said they are writing bills that would end family separations, and Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, a Republican, said he will no longer allow his National Guard troops to assist with border security as a protest against Mr. Trump's policies.

"You're not going to see a majority make a policy that's clearly adverse to the president", Jolly said. One would end the separation policy, fund the border wall and give legal protections to some immigrants who entered the country as children.
