President Trump: DHS ‘working very hard’ on the border
President Trump meets with governors at the White house on border security, boundary wall progress.
President Trump on Saturday called to say the Democrats at the end of a “terrible act”, he separates children from their parents when they cross the border, and she accused, “the protection of the MS-13 thugs.”
“Pressure on the Democrats to end the terrible law that separates the children from there [sic] parents as soon as you cross the border into the United States,” he tweeted.
Trump the observations made in the midst of a pushback from Democrats and activists for a “zero-tolerance” policy enforced by the Ministry of justice. This policy refers to all of the illegal border crossing for law enforcement, including illegal immigrants with children.

These parents are housed in adult prisons, and their children separated from them, registered as “unaccompanied minors” and handed over to the Department of Health and Human Services.
Trump has the Democrats take the blame for the separation of children from their parents. Last week, he said home Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, that the breaking up of families has occurred because of the “poor laws, has given to the Democrats.”
The Associated Press reported that he seemed to be, the reference to a 2008 law on “combating trafficking in children — a non-partisan law,” sen Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., but in a law signed by Republican President George W. Bush.
While the law nothing about the separation of the families says, it says that unaccompanied children be released from countries other than Mexico and Canada must be in the “least restrictive setting” – namely, a family or a shelter.
The Ministry of justice zero-tolerance policy, designed to deter potential illegal immigrants, does that mean that illegal immigrants released, with their children in the United States and that their children separated from them.
“If you cross the border illegally, then we will follow them. It is quite simple,” sessions said earlier this month. “If you are smuggling a child, then we will follow them. And the child can separate from you, as prescribed by law.”
SESSIONS SAYS IT ALL, WHAT ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSERS ARE PROSECUTED AND THE CHILDREN SEPARATED FROM THE PARENTS
But Trump called for democratic lawmakers to end the practice, apparently as part of a deal that includes the end of the so-called “catch and release”, where illegal immigrants released in America, while they wait for their negotiation. He also said that the diversity visa lottery and chain migration, in which immigrants sponsor family members for the Visa at the end.
“Catch and Release, lottery and chain also need to go with him, and we MUST continue to build the WALL!” he tweeted.
He is also to accuse Democrats “protect” the MS-13 gang members. He has said time and again that their opposition to a strong border policy, as well as the promotion of “sanctuary policies” in States, such as California and New York, my criminal gang members released back into the communities.
“Democrats are for the protection of MS-13 thugs,” he tweeted.
Trump was criticized by the Democrats for the description of MS-13 members as “animals.” This week he will defend accused Democrats of “trying to”, noting that he was criticized for his remarks by the Democratic leaders, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-NY.
