U.S. 'will not be a migrant camp': Donald Trump

First lady Melania Trump issued a subtle rebuke to her husband's administration on Sunday, saying she "hates" seeing children separated from their families by immigration authorities.

The number of separations has jumped since early May, when Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that all migrants illegally crossing the USA border with Mexico would be arrested, regardless of whether the adults were seeking asylum.

The event in the city of Elizabeth on Sunday came as news stories highlighting the family separations intensified political pressure on the White House, even from some of President Donald Trump's fellow Republicans.

President Donald Trump repeated a false claim in a tweet Saturday that blames Democrats for the policy of separating immigrant parents from their children upon crossing the southern border between the United States and Mexico. Former first lady Laura Bush said that as a resident of a border state, she appreciates the need to protect the nation's boundaries. "It is immoral. And it breaks my heart", Mrs.

"While we must work towards a solution that reduces the occurrence of illegal border crossings, it is unacceptable to separate young children from their parents", Republican Rep. David Valadao of Hanford said in a statement to McClatchy.

"We do not have the luxury of pretending that all individuals coming to this country as a family unit are, in fact, a family", she said.

The new Trump administration policy, which went into effect in May, sought to maximize criminal prosecutions of people caught trying to enter the USA illegally. "Immigration enforcement efforts should focus on criminals, not separating innocent children from their families". As a result, the children - who are not charged with a crime - are separated from the adults in their families.

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy for the conservative-leaning Center of Immigration Studies, said Congress could come up with a new law allowing for family detentions to stop separation. "We want safety and we want security for our country". Previous administrations made exceptions to such prosecutions for adults traveling with minor children, but the Trump administration has said it will not do so. He also tweeted in all caps, "CHANGE THE LAWS!"

"If you smuggle illegal aliens across our border, then we will prosecute you", Sessions said at the time. They're terrible laws. What's happening is so sad, is so sad. On Saturday, Stephen Miller, Trump's senior policy advisor, defended the policy to the New York Times. If the Democrats would sit down, instead of obstructing, we could have something done very quickly, good for the children, good for the country, good for the world. "Congress and the courts created this problem and Congress alone can fix it".

"We now care for them, we have high standards, we give them meals, we give them education, we give them medical care, there's videos, there's TVs, I've visited the detention centers myself", she said.

She continued to say that Congress was to blame for the current situation, and that the DHS is enforcing current law rather than pushing a White House policy.
