Dershowitz: Trump Has to Stop 'Separating Parents From Children'

"They're not put in jail, of course". Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who is pushing the Keep Families Together Act, tweeted Monday. Government statistics indicate that almost 2,000 children were separated from their families over a six-week period in April and May.

Former first lady Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, said Monday the situation at the southern USA border is "a moral and humanitarian crisis", and what is happening to families there is "horrific".

He said the child separations are a function of current law, adding that "we're stuck with these frightful laws".

For long, the image of America was that of the Promised Land. But the policy is getting more controversial by the day, and everyone from former first ladies to ex-White House staffers are coming out of the woodwork to decry it.

He has also urged Democrats to work with Republicans to create new legislation to address the issue.

Immigrant children, many of whom have been separated from their parents under a new "zero tolerance" policy by the Trump administration, walk in single file between tents in their compound next to the Mexican border in Tornillo, Texas, U.S. June 18, 2018. "We might under certain circumstances do that, but I don't think I've ever said as a deterrent or something like that", Kelly said. Church groups and human rights advocates have sharply criticized the policy, calling it inhumane. Democrats, meanwhile, stepped up their opposition to the policy, describing it as "evil".

"The United States will not be a migrant camp and it will not be a refugee holding facility", President Donald Trump declared on Monday. What the administration argues is that when an adult is prosecuted, they go into federal custody.

President Trump has consistently blamed Democrats for the situation, saying their support for passage of a broader immigration bill would end the separations.

In under 24 hours, all five living first ladies spoke out against the Trump administration's lightning-rod "zero-tolerance" immigration policy of separating families at the border.

Clinton, former first lady, secretary of state and Democratic presidential nominee, said at an awards lunch for the Women's Forum of NY that the separations are not required by law and are not grounded in any religion. He added, "If you don't like that, then don't smuggle children over our border". "That's traumatizing to the children who are innocent victims, and it is contrary to our values in this country".

"But this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart", she wrote in a guest column published Sunday in The Washington Post.
