Trump says the country's current immigration laws are "insane". 'When people, with or without children, enter our Country, they must be told to leave without our.Country being forced to endure a long and costly trial'.
The failures of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Paul Ryan and other Republican leaders to confront what they know are Trump's failures, lies, bullying and shameful misdeeds confounds the greats, ex-greats, near-greats and even the ingrates of what was once their Grand Old Party.
The Los Angeles City Council voted on several measures Tuesday regarding what they see as Donald Trump's agenda against undocumented immigrants and their families.
Since the Trump administration announced a zero-tolerance policy toward immigrants illegally crossing the US border, more than 2,000 migrant children were separated from their parents. "It's about keeping families together while at the same time being sure that we have a very powerful, very strong border, and border security will be equal if not greater than previously", Trump said at the White House, flanked by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. Meanwhile, Trump's broader proposal to deny migrants all forms of due process - and to simply eject them from the country like rowdy teens on a front lawn - would require a constitutional amendment to enact.
Trump also repeated a claim that the USA has hired or plans to hire "thousands of "judges" to handle the task of arbitrating. Numerous families have fled violence and economic attrition in Central American countries, which have been plunged into crisis, often due to decades of USA intervention in the region.
China: US tariffs will hit intl. supply chains
Xi's government has expressed confidence China can hold out against US pressure, but companies and investors are uneasy.
More than 2,300 children have been forcibly separated from parents in recent weeks. Otherwise, the administration says they will have to separate them from their children after 20 days because the law does not now allow them to indefinitely detain minors.
Faced with a barrage of criticism, Trump signed an executive order to halt the family separation practice, but made no specific provisions for those already split apart. Kirstjen Nielsen-one of those ultimately responsible for implementing this barbaric policy-a group of USA senators called on the agencies to provide lists of separated children, their parents, and a "detailed briefing" on how they're reuniting them.
'We are seeing cases where people who have passed credible fear interviews and have pending asylum claims are being given this form, ' ACLU immigration lawyer Lee Gelernt told the publication.
Those immigrants who are being asked to sign the form are not given the choice of remaining in the US with their children while they pursue asylum cases.
Those claims must be first evaluated by the apprehending officer and then taken up by an immigration court, a process that in some cases can take years.
