Macron gave the migrant French nationality - and a job.
The tweet Tuesday was the latest example of the president co-opting the terminology of his accusers in an effort to tarnish political enemies.
According to a Trump adviser, the president was warned this spring that illegal border crossings were likely to increase. And what law is the Trump administration talking about anyway?
Does anyone think this is an exaggeration? If an immigrant tells an officer at the border that they fear persecution, they are given a "credible fear" test to determine if they may have a claim. "DEMOCRATS ARE PROTECTING MS-13 THUGS", Trump tweeted, highlighting the most divisive aspects on a debate that has been rocking USA politics for more than a decade.
But, as The Times acknowledged, that is unrelated to the report on the illegal immigrant children for which the government can not account. "The government did realize past year that it lost track of 1,475 migrant children it had placed with sponsors in the United States, according to testimony before a Senate subcommittee last month".
Foschi said that although a lot of the policies are at the federal level, many immigration issues are a "Pennsylvania issue". "If you don't want your child to be separated, then don't bring them across the border illegally", Sessions said when announcing the policy. The White House wrongly blamed Democrats for forcing his administration to separate children from parents. The reason: Children are not allowed in criminal jails.
Second, the true nature of Sessions' policy change is getting obscured. "It's not our fault that somebody does that".
While Democrats blame Trump for the policy, and Trump has pointed the finger at an unspecified Democratic law, Fresco said the Flores v. Reno settlement is a major, overlooked factor that led to the current situation.
"Trump called the practice 'horrible, ' so if he thinks it's so terrible 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. Give us your exhausted, your poor, your huddle masses yearning to breathe free - and we will torture them for wanting a better life. Every lawbreaker is separated from his or her family, officials said.
Trump tweets about job report victory - so why are people angry?
Trump's tweet received harsh criticism from former members of the Obama administration. The May jobs numbers, released Friday morning, were excellent. "He is the president".
Currently, most parents are not required to be fingerprinted to get custody of their children.
Large groups of Central American migrants have been taken into custody in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas in recent weeks, according to Border Patrol agents, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss operations.
The administration noted Tuesday that it isn't allowed to send back children from non-contiguous countries under the 2008 Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, and was instead required to quickly find them US sponsors until their cases could be heard. As totalitarian societies and mob bosses have demonstrated through the ages, many things can serve as disincentives while still making everyone with civilized values recoil in horror.
The number of beds available for such long-term foster care has doubled, to almost 600, since May 2016, according to a care provider who works with the Department of Health and Human Services, the agency that takes custody of children who are separated from their parents or arrive at the border without a relative.
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.
No. The number refers to children who came to the United States alone, referred by government officials as "unaccompanied alien children".
A New York Times report and a USA Today report both had to issue corrections after they claimed that the Trump administration had "lost track" of almost 1,500 unaccompanied minors who had crossed the southern border and been resettled across the country. There is no law requiring separation, and the zero-tolerance policy came from his own Administration.
Or, sadly, we may learn yet again that America's conscience fled our shores in shame on Election Night 2016.
