Trump’s executive order on family separations: 3 things it doesn’t do

Today, HRC responded to Donald Trump's executive order retreating from his cruel and risky policy of separating families at the border and two bills scheduled for votes tomorrow in the U.S. House of Representatives that fall far short of addressing the needs of refugees, dreamers, and other undocumented immigrants.

Some argued that the policy to separate parents and children isn't different than what happens to other criminals who are arrested or imprisoned. There are now 12,000 children in the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services.

"This Executive Order doesn't fix the crisis", tweeted Sen. He and other officials had repeatedly said they had no choice but to separate families stopped at the border because of the law and a court decision. "Our focus is on continuing to provide quality services and care to the minors in HHS/ORR funded facilities and reunifying minors with a relative or appropriate sponsor as we have done since HHS inherited the program".

President Trump's backdown comes amid growing fury over the detention of children. There was already a significant issue as to whether separating children was constitutionally permissible; the question of whether their new housing meets constitutional standards now will be litigated, no doubt. With children detained for longer, HHS announced last week that it will build a "tent city" near El Paso, Texas, to handle the overflow.

"We're not fooled by this bait and switch", said Archi Pyati, chief of policy at Tahirih Justice Center. Children would only be separated from their parents if their safety is at risk.

Because federal law prohibits children from being held in the same detention facility as those charged with unlawful entry, border patrol agents have separated children from their parents who are prosecuted for entering the USA illegally.

In Brexit showdown, British PM May faces challenge over 'meaningful vote'
The comments came after a leaked government document suggested Britain would be worse off under every Brexit scenario. The government averted a rebellion on Tuesday over whether Parliament should have a decisive say in such a scenario.


When asked specifically about the images of children being taken from their parents at immigration centers, Trump said that the images affected him.

Although Trump's crackdown is aimed at deterring irregular migration to the United States, the North American country has witnessed has witnessed a surge since October, with many migrants fleeing violence and extreme poverty in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.

Trump's said the order does not alter the "zero tolerance" policy itself that the administration put in place in April. Sanders also said that Trump's executive order merely "replaces one inhumane act with another". As of June 4, the total population of the facilities was around 2,600. But placing children in those facilities would run afoul of the 1997 "Flores Settlement" agreement that limits the government's ability to keep children in detention and orders them to be placed in least-restrictive setting possible.

The order does not strip zero tolerance enforcement, meaning individuals who enter the country illegally or claim asylum outside of official ports of entry will still be charged and prosecuted. "It's a problem that's gone on for many years, as you know, through many administrations".

The attorney general directed the department to prosecute all illegal crossings. "They don't need jail".

"The real fault is with the parents", added Berry, who doesn't object to keeping children with their parents.
