The Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday blasted big US airlines for a hasty limiting cooperation with immigration authorities, in the midst of the turmoil in the family separations on the border.
American Airlines, United Airlines and Frontier Airlines condemned DHS earlier Wednesday and demanded that the government stop its flights for the transport of children separated from their families-even though they admitted that they were safe, the government was, in fact, by your flights for this purpose.
But a DHS spokesman, fired back, noting that the flights can actually be used to reunite families.
“It is unfortunate that American, United and Frontier Airlines no longer want to partner with the brave men and women of DHS for the protection of the traveling public, the fight against trafficking in human beings, and to quickly reunite unaccompanied illegal immigrant children with their families,” DHS spokesman Tyler Q. Houlton said in a statement.
The airlines responded to the part of indignation, which quickly on social media, according to the latest Facebook-post-16 “sweet, innocent” children “charged as a criminal” on a domestic flight. The post the intense outcry over the practice of separation of children of illegal immigrant parents — a practice that President Trump moved to reverse Wednesday afternoon by executive order heats,.
The post, though, did not specify the airline and was a second-hand account. According to the post, allegedly by a Stewardess, the staff, the children were accompanied by an “adult escort” and were “torn from their families.” The post also claimed that the children speak English, and were “dressed in black and gray cheap Walmart sweat suits.”

The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, which represents 50,000 flight attendants, allegedly claimed that the post was real, but does not explain how it came to this conclusion.
According to the Arizona Republic, analyzed the flight times described in the post, the alleged incident likely occurred on an American Airlines flight.
“Buckling of a false media narrative is only exacerbating the problems at our border.”

But officials of the DHS, without a specific to the Facebook claim, recalled that the airlines are key partners in the implementation of important migration-specific services, the protection of children.
“Buckling of a false media narrative only exacerbates the problems at our border, and brings more children at risk of human traffickers. We wish the airlines would choose instead to be part of the solution.
“For 15 years, the Department of Homeland Security has worked diligently with America airlines, for the safety of air travel and facilitate the travel by air of millions of Americans and visitors, and we will continue to do so,” Houlton added.
In rapid-fire instructions, the major U.S. airlines quickly and the public had distanced themselves from DHS.
“Based on our serious concerns about this data protection policy, and how it is contacted, in deep conflict with our company values, we have to inform officials of the Federal government, that you, you should not transport immigrant children on the US planes, which were separated from their parents,” said United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz.
“Based on some research that we have done internal and public reports, we have no evidence that these children were flown by United aircraft,” he added.
In a tweet, Frontier Airlines, a similar statement was made, while saying that it is not aware of, if your flights have been used separately to transport children living.
Frontier is proud to be a family airline, and we will not knowingly allow our flights to transport the migrant children away from their families. At this time we are not aware of when the Frontier was used for this purpose.

“Frontier is proud to be a family airline, and we will not knowingly allow our flights to transport the migrant children away from their families. At this time we are not aware of when the Frontier was used for this purpose.”
“The family separation process, was widely publicised, not at all matched with the values of the American Airlines – we don’t bring together families,” American Airlines said, adding that “the government has no information about the type of flights it takes, or the passengers who are on the go.”
The Trump-government, the “zero-tolerance” immigration policy is far more adult commuters for law enforcement, which in turn leads to family separations due to long-standing rules barring children detained with adults in these circumstances. Trump, if, under an executive order signed on Wednesday afternoon, so the children will stay with parents caught crossing the border illegally.
