  • Democrats, activists rally against Trump's family separation policy

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen on Monday tried defending the administration's policy of breaking up immigrant families at the border. The Trump administration put in place the policy to arrest all migrants who illegally cross the USA border, including those seeking asylum, and because children can not be sent to the same detention facilities as their parents, they are separated.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the "zero-tolerance policy for criminal illegal entry" on 6 April 2018. "This administration did not create a policy of separating families at the border", she said, adding that adults are investigated at the border for links to human trafficking and to see if they are biologically related to the children they are accompanying. In Texas, several Democratic members of Congress said at a news conference that they had toured one US detention center and encountered children under the age of one who they were told had been in government custody for more than a month. 'The government should be in the business of keeping families together, not tearing them apart, ' she said, NBC reported.

Nielsen was asked why Trump hasn't shown compassion toward the separated illegal-alien children and why he doesn't pause the separations while Congress works on a fix.

The secretary claimed the policy was meant to push back against MS-13 gang members, but Brzezinski said 2-year-old girls were not violent gangsters, and she disputed Nielsen's insistence that the policy was a law.

"She said there's no strategy of deterrence, yet that's exactly what John Kelly and Jeff Sessions argued was the objective of this, was to send a message to families overseas not to come to America", he argued.

"Our only option is to not enforce the law".

On other issues, such as the gassing of Syrian children, Trump has professed to be moved to action by photos of victimized kids. "We do not have the luxury of pretending that all individuals coming to this country as a family unit are in fact a family. She said this is not being used as a pawn for legislation, yet that's exactly what the President said it was, that this was legislative leverage".

Her "Be Best" platform, unveiled in May, is dedicated to children's well-being.

But the policy has drawn condemnation from medical professionals, religious leaders and immigration activists, who warn that some children could suffer lasting psychological trauma.

Nielsen brushed off reporters' questions about the well-being of the children.

"I think that they reflect the focus of those who post such pictures and narratives". "This administration has a simple message - If you cross the border illegally, we will prosecute you".

The border is "being overrun by those who have no right to cross it".

Nielsen also insisted that it wasn't true, as many have reported, that asylum-seekers are being turned away from ports of entry, forcing them to cross at unauthorized entry points. Many are fleeing violence in Central America and are hoping to apply for asylum in the United States.
