  • UN calls on Trump to ‘immediately halt’ policy on separating migrant families at border

As I said, detention is never in the best interest of the child and always constitutes a child rights violation.

Ravina Shamdasani, a spokesperson for the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, said in a statement on Tuesday that the office is "deeply concerned" by the USA government's decision to separate migrant families, arguing that the policy "amounts to arbitrary and unlawful interference in family life, and is a serious violation of the rights of the child".

Ravina Shamdasani, a spokesperson for the UN high commissioner for human rights, scolded the United States over the hundreds of children removed from parents who were jailed for entering the country illegally. But it has ratified similar conventions, which means the country has legal obligations to all children in "it's care", explained Shamdasani.

William Spindler of the UN refugee agency stressed Tuesday that "the right to claim asylum is a fundamental human right. and it is also part of the law in the United States".

"Once again, the United Nations shows its hypocrisy by calling out the United States while it ignores the reprehensible human rights records of several members of its own Human Rights Council", said Nikki Haley, United States Ambassador to the United Nations.

Some say illegal aliens might be using children to play the immigration system as migrants understand their asylum claims are invalid. Roughly 550 children are in custody, and of those, almost 300 have spent more than 72 hours there, NBC reported.

If anything, Trump's tweet just proves that outrage over the draconian policy isn't going away.

In a tweet, President Trump said "separating families at the Border is the fault of bad legislation passed by the Democrats". "Border Security laws should be changed but the Dems can't get their act together!"

HHS is responsible for finding shelter for migrant children, as well as matching them with relatives or foster parents in the country, but it takes 45 days on average to find a sponsor for a child, according to a spokesperson for the department's Administration for Children and Families, which cares for 11,200 unaccompanied children.

Federal authorities reportedly separated at least 600 immigrant children from their parents last month, sparking widespread outrage and global condemnation. Half of those children are under 12 years-old.
