Trump denies he'll revive family separations, distorts Obama border policy

This week, Trump signaled he might try a different approach, with US officials saying the government is considering a new policy that could again split up families at the border, but this time, the choice would be up to the parents - they could stay detained while sending their children to a family member or a legal guardian. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, "you know he's completely lost touch with the American people". "We intend to appeal, and we will take all necessary action to defend the Executive branch's lawful efforts to resolve the crisis at our southern border", the White House said.

Operating under the same immigration laws as Barack Obama, Trump instituted a zero-tolerance policy aimed at detaining everyone who was caught crossing the border illegally and criminally prosecuting all the adults.

Trump has appointed Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan as acting DHS secretary to replace Nielsen, who is said to have had many disputes with the president.

Number of immigrants apprehended at the U.S. -Mexico border each month. Now, the Trump administration has extended the same policy to the Calexico port of entry in southern California and to the border crossing in El Paso, Texas.

Because of limits on how long children are legally allowed to be held in detention, numerous families are released to await United States immigration court hearings, a process that can take years because of ballooning backlogs.

"President Obama separated children".

U.S. officers arrested or denied entry to over 103,000 people along the border with Mexico in March, a 35 percent increase over the prior month and more than twice as many as the same period previous year, according to data released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection on Tuesday.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he'll send more military personnel to the border, where members of his administration say the situation is deteriorating.

In announcing the policy, the Homeland Security Department said it was relying on a section of the immigration law that allows it to return an undocumented immigrant to a "foreign territory contiguous to the United States" while awaiting a deportation proceeding. "And more immigrants are emboldened to make the unsafe journey". "They have all these terrible laws that the Democrats won't change they will not change them". "The border security and humanitarian crisis at the Southwest border has ripple effects that impact the entire nation".

"Binary choice is not something that's been brought to the White House", the official said.

But Trump's latest comments reflect the confused nature of the White House's messaging on the sensitive immigration issue.

"As more and more adults with children are released into the USA pending immigration proceedings, word of mouth and social media have spread news", Hastings continued.

NumbersUSA, a group that seeks to reduce immigration rates, released a statement Tuesday saying there is "no one more qualified" for the job and claiming Kobach had the support of Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

"I don't have an attorney", one woman told Immigration Judge Scott Simpson last week.

Judge Richard Seeborg, an Obama appointee, said in his Monday ruling that the policy was too risky in Mexico and that the government cut too many corners.
