Celebrities Ivanka Trump Follows On Instagram Send Message About Family Separation

Ivanka Trump, the daughter and senior adviser to President Donald Trump, follows quite a few celebrities on Instagram. "A child has died after separation". "You said family separation was a "low point" for you".

The open letter points out the many abuses that these children have had to endure, including "multiple claims of sexual and physical abuse" and the use of "psychotropic drugs administered to children" without their parents' consent. This crisis is ongoing.

"As of now, 572 children had not been reunited", the Instagram letter, which has been shared widely, continues.

It goes on to demand that children be reunited and that Trump demand the resignation of Kirstjen Nielsen, who oversaw the enforcement of the policy. But of more than 2,500 children who were initially separated from parents and guardians, hundreds remain in federal custody, including more than 400 whose parents were sent back to their home countries without them. These abuses have occurred on your father's watch and under the leaderships of Secretary Nielsen. End these racist, inhumane and unconscionable abuses now!

She admitted it "was a low point" of her time in the White House during an Axios News Shapers conversation.

Phil Thompson predicts where Liverpool FC, Man City will finish
Phil Thompson believes Manchester City are favourites to win the Premier League title ahead of Liverpool FC this season. I was told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane .

"I am very vehemently against family separation and the separation of parents and children so I would agree with that sentiment". Immigration is incredibly complex as a topic.

At the talk in Washington, Trump also invoked her own position as the "daughter of an immigrant" as evidence of her empathy, but told the audience that "we are a country of laws", so she came to this country legally.

Earlier this year, the Trump administration's immigration "zero-tolerance" policy resulted in the separation of thousands of children from their families.

Public figures, including comedians Amy Schumer and Chelsea Handler, model Alexa Chung, and fashion entrepreneur Sophie Amoruso - all followed by Ivanka Trump on Instagram - have posted the message, which details the abuses taking place at the border.
