Halsey Slams Ivanka Trump For Tone Deaf Post Amid Missing Immigrant Children

Halsey Slams Ivanka Trump For Tone Deaf Post Amid Missing Immigrant Children

On May 7, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a speech that "If you're smuggling a child, then we're going to prosecute you, and that child will be separated from you, probably, as required by law".

At the same time, Health and Human Services officials are under scrutiny concerning the treatment of unaccompanied minors who seek to enter the U.S.

Over the weekend, an image of migrant children sleeping in cages was circulated and used both by the media and certain outspoken liberals to smear President Donald Trump's "cruel" immigration policies.

The past policy was to allow adults traveling with children into the country.

President Trump took to Twitter Saturday to blame Democrats for the "horrible law". Mr. Miller and the other officials argued the issue is in Congress's hands.

"Put pressure on the Democrats to end the awful law that separates children from there parents once they cross the Border into the U.S. Catch and Release, Lottery and Chain must also go with it and we MUST continue building the WALL!"

Democrats said the administration was trying to deflect responsibility for its own policies.

Children traveling with a caravan of migrants from Central America stand on the beach and near the border fence between Mexico and the USA, prior to preparations for an asylum request in the US, in Tijuana, Mexico April 29, 2018.

Lawmakers have focused this year on reaching a deal that would protect hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants, known as Dreamers, from deportation, in exchange for tougher border enforcement and other measures.

Not if you're Ivanka Trump, anyway, daughter of President Donald Trump and an adviser as well. Mr. Trump ended an Obama-era program that protected the Dreamers but it remains in effect due to federal court rulings. During a recent roundtable, he accused migrant children crossing the border of being "not innocent". Until recently, the result was that families who crossed the border seeking asylum often were released in the USA while their cases were pursued.

On Tuesday, Wagner said many children are with people who are in the country illegally and that "there's no reason to believe that anything has happened to those kids". Look for events near you using the map here (it will be updated throughout the week) or use the hashtag #FamiliesBelongTogether to find them on social media.

"If we want to talk about optics, I'm sure she was just like, 'This is a lovely photo of me and my son, I'm going to post it, etc., etc.,'" McCain said, "but yes, when you are the special adviser to the president of the United States of America, whether they like it or not, they got to think about optics".

That number is expected to jump once Trump's new "zero tolerance" policy is enacted, which would enforce criminal charges against people crossing the border illegally with few or no previous offences. While this is obviously a completely normal thing to do, and would usually be met with nothing but positive responses and feelings of joy, the complete lack of awareness regarding timing and content is baffling-as her father's administration is now responsible for separating and losing 1,500 undocumented children.
