Michael Avenatti Offers Legal Services to Parents of Children Taken at Border

Senator Elizabeth Warren

So if they don't like that law, they should change it, ' she added.

"As a mother, as a Catholic, as somebody who has a conscience". Under the policy, adults who cross the border illegally are prosecuted and any children with them are placed into USA custody and held in detention centers.

Trump plans to meet House Republicans on Wednesday to discuss pending immigration legislation amid an election-season debate over an issue that helped vault the NY real estate mogul into the Oval Office in 2016.

The lawyer representing pornstar Stormy Daniels took to Twitter Sunday to offer his representation of any parent who was separated from their child at the US border.

Amid the crackdown, the detained parents are "in jail settings", the official said, awaiting adjudication and possible prosecution for crossing the border.

Trump has refused to accept responsibility for the family separation policy, which administration officials say is meant to deter undocumented immigrants from making the trek to the USA border with their children. "I will tell you that nobody likes this policy", White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday. We need border security. "He's just not going to kick the can down the road, whether that is China, whether it's tariffs, whether it's Korea, whether it's the southern border".

If those options are not available for certain children, the government is required to place them in the "least restrictive" setting for their ages. "I don't see a reason to spend the money doing that", Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said in an interview Friday.

Democratic Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke, who is challenging Sen.




The two questioned whether deterrence was a motivation for separating migrant families and asked for details about DHS's procedures for processing asylum applications from families.

Evangelical leader Franklin Graham, son of "America's pastor" Billy Graham and a prominent Trump supporter, told the Christian Broadcasting Network on Tuesday, "It's disgraceful, and it's bad to see families ripped apart and I don't support that one bit".

More on the children: "Just be a dad", Rep. Luis Gutierrez urged Trump on CNN regarding the separation policy, per the Hill. Rev. Franklin Graham, who's typically a Trump ally, told Christian Broadcasting Network that it's "disgraceful, it's awful, to see families ripped apart, and I don't support that one bit".

"This administration has made it clear that we are not going to ignore the law any longer", the official said. "I certainly don't want anybody to use these kids as leverage", she said. Trump has repeatedly, falsely asserted that a law passed by Democrats is to blame for the family-separation policy.

This one is of Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the gates of the camps kids are getting housed. Republicans announced that they planned to vote next week on a pair of immigration bills, but Democrats have indicated they are solidly opposed to both of those proposals.

First lady Melania Trump is wading into the emotional controversy over policies enacted by her husband's administration that have increased the number of migrant children being separated from their parents. The Democrats forced that law upon our nation'.

Asylum seekers who go directly to official crossings are not separated from their families unless officials can not confirm whether a child is related to the adult they are with, or if the safety of the child is in question.

Though the policy has been enacted and touted by his own administration, Trump has avoided publicly owning it and, instead, blamed Democrats for "forcing the breakup of families at the Border with their disgusting and cruel legislative agenda". Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke, who's challenging Republican Senator Ted Cruz in November, planned to visit a a new facility opened near El Paso he described as a "tent city". Democrats are good at only three things, High Taxes, High Crime and Obstruction. Sad!
