What's happening at the United States border

US migrant family separation: Crying children audio released

The immigration bills that are expected to come to the floor this week are compromises in the sense that they're trying to bring together the disparate GOP caucus: a more moderate version is from House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), while a more conservative version is from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.).

The rally in front of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in downtown San Francisco drew several hundred protesters, blocking off a stretch of Sansome Street.

Almost 2,000 children were separated from their families over a six-week period in April and May after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the new "zero-tolerance" policy that refers all cases of illegal entry for criminal prosecution. Every Senate Democrat has now become a co-sponsor of the legislation which would prohibit children from being separated from their parents within 100 miles of the USA border except for instances of abuse, neglect or other specific circumstances.

Heartbreaking cries of youngsters calling for their parents in tears can be heard on the tape, reportedly released by a whistleblower at one of the border camps.

Governors across the United States are now queuing up to say that they will not support the separations, with New York, Colorado and MA saying they will not provide troops to help secure the border - and Maryland recalling its soldiers. "We are all human beings".

US President Donald Trump has fired back after an outpouring of emotion over family separations at the United States border that has seen his government repeatedly compared to the Nazis.

US officials say more than 2,300 children have been separated from their parents or guardians since early May, when the administration announced its "zero tolerance" push to arrest and charge anyone illegally crossing the US-Mexico border, regardless of whether they were seeking asylum.

The act does not mandate family separations.

Alison has since been moved to a shelter, but her mother still faces deportation. And for years, as illegal immigration numbers saw seasonal spikes, presidents from both parties agonized over the best way to stop unauthorized border crossings.

On Instagram on Monday, Neymar posted a picture of his foot while receiving treatment alongside the message "work hard". He limped as he walked away from the field toward the dressing room, accompanied by a team doctor.

While the White House is pretty good at separating children, they don't have a plan in place for reuniting the kids with their parents-especially now since the detainment facilities are overflowing, which means the government is now building tent cities to house the children.

Trump supporters argue that children were still detained during the Obama administration, pointing to images of kids in cages from 2014, which were mistakenly identified on Twitter as current. Numerous children are being held in a former Walmart store in Texas.

The Republican-controlled Congress is under pressure to curb the policy after it sparked widespread condemnation. "And it seems as if it's bordering on child abuse".

And she said that if DHS didn't do its job and enforce the law, it would mark "the beginning of the unraveling of the democracy when the body who makes the laws instead of changing them tells the enforcement body not to enforce the law".

The administration's "zero tolerance" policy entails criminally charging those entering the United States illegally, including asylum seekers.

Jessica Redford, of San Francisco, chants during a protest outside ICE headquarters in San Francisco, Calif., on Tuesday, June 19, 2018. We could have - child separation - we're stuck with these awful laws.

As the adults are being charged, their children are then separated and deemed to be unaccompanied minors. Trump said his daughter, Ivanka, had told him the situation with the families looks bad, one lawmaker said.

"My heart goes out to the impacted families", said JPMorgan Chase & Co Chief Executive Jamie Dimon, who chairs the Business Roundtable, in a memo to the bank's employees.
