Fact checking the Trump administration on immigration

"This is an administrative policy that is separating these families, a Trump administration policy, and if Donald Trump wants to change it and let families stay together, he can change it", Warren said on ABC's The View.

The Trump administration has come under criticism for its policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the border, reversing a previous practice that families who cross the border seeking asylum were often released together into the USA while their cases are pursued.

In the past, that information was largely walled off for the purposes of immigration enforcement while the sponsors were vetted by HHS, out of a concern that Homeland Security's involvement could have a "chilling effect" on parents living in the country illegally and discourage them from claiming the kids.

Children wait to receive gifts after a show to entertain them at the sports club where Central American migrants traveling with the annual Stations of the Cross caravan have been camped out in Matias Romero, Mexico, April 4, 2018. Here are the facts.

Numerous unaccompanied minors are coming from Central American nations and fleeing gang violence and poverty.

USA laws and legal precedent limit the time juveniles can be detained, so those caught crossing the border alone are often released to adult sponsors in the United States.

"Trump called the practice 'horrible, ' so if he thinks it's so frightful he ought to end it and not make children pawns as a negotiating tool", said Lee Gelernt, an immigration attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union, which has filed a class-action lawsuit to force the government to stop separating families at the border. Not surprisingly, many of those families include other relatives living in the US illegally who are very reluctant to talk to government officials, especially during Trump's presidency.

Not exactly - there's more to the story. At a congressional committee last month, however, it was determined that the government was "unable to determine with certainty the whereabouts of 1,475" minors after attempting to contact their sponsors in the last three months of 2017.

However, Gelernt said that the Trump administration has made the decision to go through with a "systematic" and "unprecedented" separation of children and parents in an effort to deter families from crossing the border. It's a disgusting thing where you have to break up families.

"We're really looking forward to the implementation of this MOA so DHS helps us to our job even more effectively", Wagner said. Thankfully, she has a humanitarian side, as well, and graciously offered everyone suffering from displacement, heartbreak, and the physical loss of their child, a "great week".

Barack Obama's former speechwriter, Jon Favreau, was one of the most notable figures to share them.

But are Democrats really responsible for the policy of separating families at the border?

In cases where a parent crosses illegally with his or her child, the parent will be referred for prosecution and the child directed to HHS for care and custody while the child's immigration case is resolved. Others arrive seeking asylum, some of whom are eligible for such status in our system. However, many children may have been separated from their parents after they had entered the United States together.

WASHINGTON-The White House on Tuesday cited a combination of court rulings and laws as the underpinning for its policy to separate immigrant children from their parents, and looked to shift the responsibility to Democrats in Congress.

I am also ashamed at what this awful policy says about what this great country is becoming under the misguided, nationalistic, anti-immigrant leadership of Donald Trump. "The children will be taken care of - put into foster care or whatever". The agency says the bulk of the sponsors are parents or immediate family members or others whom the children had some previous relationship.
