Donald Trump urges Republicans to 'fix' family separation crisis

20 Juin 2018

Republican strategist Steve Schmidt - who convinced John McCain to appoint Sarah Palin as his running mate - renounced his membership in the Republican Party over the continuing abuses of President Donald Trump.

"There's no reason to separate the kids from their mothers and fathers".

Correction: June 19, 2018 12:00 am - A previous photo caption incorrectly referred to a meeting between President Trump and members of Congress as having taken place on Tuesday.

"I don't want judges", Trump said at an event hosted by the National Federation of Independent Business. "We spoke to fathers whose children have been ripped from their arms, who have no idea when or if they will see their children again", Nadler said of his visit. Trump has attempted to pass the blame off on Democrats, and when asked why he didn't take executive action by ABC News' Kenneth Moton last week, Trump replied: "We can't do it through an executive order". We have to be able to do this.

Trump's policy does not seem to be diminishing his popularity among his supporters, including Jesse Bernal, a 38-year-old youth pastor in Morgan Hill who says the border crisis is being exaggerated by a liberal media. The change would loosen rules that now limit the amount of time minors can be held to 20 days, according to a GOP source familiar with the measure.

On Tuesday evening, protesters heckled United States homeland security chief Kirstjen Nielsen as she dined at a Mexican restaurant in Washington.

"There's no need for legislation", said Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat.

"There's no need for legislation".

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, a member of the Freedom Caucus, said he's skeptical that even a full-throated endorsement from Trump will be enough to get the compromise bill through the House.

"Mr. President, you started it, you can stop it, plain and simple", Schumer told reporters.

Schmidt said his decision was a direct result of the administration's policy of separating children from parents who illegally cross the border.

"Listen", he added, "I want lower taxes".

Widespread outrage over the separations has given Republicans cause for concern in an election year.

Right now House Speaker Paul Ryan appears focused on two bills, both written by congressional Republicans, that would address other aspects of the immigration system in addition to the family separation policy.

And he accused reporters of being complicit with the cartels that control the human smuggling traffic into the US, saying the press is distorting the policies.

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.

Just hours after doubling down on his administration's much-derided policy that triggers separations of migrant children from their parents, Trump braved frustrated and in some cases angry fellow Republicans to assure he wanted their swift resolution to the crisis.
