  • Barack Obama Rebukes Trump's Separation of Immigrant Families

The "zero tolerance" policy put into place last month moves adults to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service and sends many children to facilities run by the Department of Health and Human Services. Almost 2,000 children have been separated from their families at the US border over a six-week period during a crackdown on illegal entries, according to Department of Homeland Security figures obtained Friday by The Associated Press.

"So we're going to have strong - very strong borders, but we're going to keep the families together". The House is considering two immigration bills, although neither dealt in particular with the family separation policy. It includes funding for a border wall, along with a pathway to citizenship for the Dreamers - immigrants brought illegally into the United States as children. Polls show that most Americans oppose the separation of children from their parents at the border.

Petzing, whose nonprofit is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, said authorities usually ask unaccompanied children where they're going.

Trump has said he's "1,000 percent" behind both GOP bills, but restive House Republicans have all but begged GOP leaders for more clarity about what the president would actually sign. Throughout her time in the administration, she has sought to position herself above the fray, arguing in interviews that her focus is on policy and that she is more effective working behind the scenes if she disagrees with her father.

The family separations, highlighted by videos of youngsters detained in cages and an audiotape of wailing children, have sparked an outcry at home and strong condemnation overseas.

George was also christened in the Chapel Royal, but Charlotte was baptised at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham. As for Kate Middleton , she's on maternity leave after giving birth to Prince Louis on April 23.

Trump's order included no timeline for Nielsen's department to begin detaining families together and is silent on when or how children already taken from their parents will be reunited with them.

Sen. Jeff Merkley, an early and influential critic of the Trump policy, said the president's alternative is equally bad.

"I did not like the sight of families being separated", he said, but added the administration would continue its "zero tolerance policy" of criminally prosecuting anyone who crosses the border illegally.

It has been a awful thing for the families torn apart, and some of them, it is becoming frighteningly clear, may never recover, may never be brought back together again. However, at the 20-day mark, under the Flores consent decree, the department will have to release the children from custody. To keep alien families together, the EO contains a provision requiring the Attorney General to file a request with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California to modify the Settlement Agreement in Flores v. Sessions, so that alien families can be detained together throughout the pendency of criminal proceedings. Susan Collins, R-Me., to start talking about possible longer-term legislative solutions to address the issues surrounding families being separated on the USA border.

Meghan Markle Goes to the Races
For the first day of the Royal Ascot horse races, Meghan Markle wore a belted white shirt dress with lace detailing at the waist. Initial reports claimed that Prince Harry didn't ask for Thomas' approval because they've not met each other in person.

Over the weekend, Trump angrily watched as members of his administration contradicted themselves on television while images of the detention facilities aired on a split-screen. It also directs the attorney general to seek to modify a 21-year-old settlement agreement that stipulates that the government can not hold minors in immigration detention for more than 20 days.

In the end, under increasing pressure from his own party, Trump chose to do just that. Many Republicans fear a backlash from the Republican base if they vote for the legislation and Trump turns against it. "Much like the travel ban..."

Will their cases be heard in court?

US President Donald Trump displays an executive order on immigration policy after signing it in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, US, on June 20, 2018. In other words, existing cases will not be "grandfathered in" to be covered under the new order, the official said.

"The president doesn't get any Brownie points for moving from a policy of locking up kids and families separately to a policy of locking them up together", said Karen Tumlin, director of legal strategy at the National Immigration Law Center. She also ruled that the announced decree would replace one crisis with another: "Children have no place in prison", she said. Others railed against what they called Trump's human rights violations at the border. Neither is the long-term plan for families who are detained jointly. It is unknown how the agencies will proceed now that the zero tolerance policy has been effectively neutered.

Instead it is the fact that the Reds face home games following their six Champions League group stage matches. City will be the first team since Manchester United in 2008-09 looking to retain the Premier League title.
