Obama Attacks Trump for 'Ripping Children From Their Parents' Arms' - Trump Relents

He says his administration was put "in the position of separating alien families to effectively enforce the law" due to "Congress's failure to act" and "court orders".

The same can be said about earlier today when the former president chose to go on the offensive against Trump's harshly criticizing the child separation policy at our southern border.

Most of the more than 10,000 children in shelters under HHS care came to the USA alone and are waiting to be placed with family members living in the U.S.

A spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services, Kenneth Wolfe, told The New York Times that detained children won't be joining their detained parents soon.

The Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy toward people who cross the border illegally, rolled out earlier this year, has been widely condemned and resulted in the separation thousands of migrant children from their parents.

"Children belong with their families and in their communities, not in cages or behind bars". That's a tough dilemma.

"Locking up whole families is no solution at all - the Trump Administration must reverse its policy of prosecuting vulnerable people fleeing three of the most risky countries on earth, who are attempting to seek safe haven in America". They don't care about lack of security. According to an inside account of the president's retreat reported by the Washington Post, the president surprised aides - some of whom had gone out and aggressively defended the policy following their boss's lead - by asking them on Wednesday morning to prepare a draft executive order to end the controversial policy.

Key US allies, including the UK, Canada, and France, are among the most vocal critics.

Immigrant children walk in a line outside the Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Children, a former Job Corps site that now houses them, on June 20, 2018, in Homestead, Florida.

"I don't even know how it plays in the midterms, I just know that it's something that as a dad my heart goes out to these families", Stivers said.

The president had, for most part, struck a defiant note as he tried to use the plight of the children to force congress to pass a broader law enhancing border security, curbing family based immigration. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said his department will start reuniting detained immigrant children with their parents - but he made no specific commitment on how quickly that can be accomplished. However, the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy of prosecuting all illegal border crossings has caused an increased number of these separations. This may mean that immigration activists, speaking for families being held indefinitely by the government, could legally challenge the executive order.

"That's the reality for so numerous families whose plights we see and heart-rending cries we hear", the 44th president continued.

The attorney general directed the department to prosecute all illegal crossings.

The Flores settlement, named for a teenage girl who brought the case in the 1980s, requires the government to release children from custody and to their parents, adult relatives or other caretakers, in order of preference.
