Donald Trump Rips Democrats for Tweeting Border Pictures from 2014

Donald Trump Rips Democrats for Tweeting Border Pictures from 2014

Discussing the zero-tolerance policy recently, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said: "If we do our duty and prosecute those cases, then children inevitably for a period of time might be in different conditions".

Marc Short, White House Director Of Legislative Affairs, joins Judy Woodruff to discuss President Trump's agenda, including a potential deal with the huge Chinese tech firm ZTE, the financial effects of the GOP tax cut, reports that migrant children are being separated from their parents and abused, and GOP divisions in the House of Representatives. The net result is that there are some children who came into HHS' system for whom it can not fully account now.

Immigrant advocacy groups dismissed the Trump administration's rationale as a lie being used as a pretext to enact a barbaric policy. Activists who shared the Obama-era photos, intending to shame Trump, include Shaun King and Linda Sarsour. "Dems must agree to Wall and new Border Protection for good of country.Bipartisan Bill!"

Senior administration officials said Tuesday in a call with reporters that they believed adults including gang members and smugglers were using "loopholes" in the existing immigration system to exploit children, and that Congress should change the system if lawmakers didn't like it.

The hashtag #WhereAreTheChildren has been trending on Twitter, bringing attention to almost 1,500 "lost" immigrant children and whether the Trump administration is to blame for it.

"We do place kids with families that are themselves here illegally", he said, "so you could imagine that many of those would not choose to speak to a federal official calling them on the phone".

A controversy erupted after Wagner testified in April before a Senate committee that the agency in 2016 conducted a limited "safety and well-being" call to around 7,600 children that had been in its care but was unable to locate around 1,500 children and their sponsors.

Trump will never solve this problem if he only sees it as a mechanism to rile up his anti-immigrant base as we head into the midterm elections, where he knows Republicans and his legacy are in trouble.

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. "Sometimes they don't even talk to the kid", he said.

Blackburn and Bredesen are expected to face off in a general election that is considered a toss-up by Fox News. However, the sometimes Trump critic would have likely lost to Blackburn in the primary.

Enter a June 2014 online story by The Arizona Republic titled "First peek: Immigrant children flood detention centre".

HHS has said it has no legal responsibility to trace these children.

Wagner said HHS's interpretation of the law is that it's not legally responsible for children once they are under a sponsor's care.

These families are not "smuggling" their children over the border. Thankfully, she has a humanitarian side, as well, and graciously offered everyone suffering from displacement, heartbreak, and the physical loss of their child, a "great week". In half of those cases, the adult sponsor was one of the child's parents, and another 40 percent were close adult relatives. This unique program works in conjunction with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and was a product of the Obama Administration.

It's not highly unusual to fail to keep track of many minors who came unaccompanied to the border.

But the photos are actually from 2014 - when Obama was president. "He had an open-door, open-arms policy toward them".

He is right about the misrepresentation, though it's not clear that many prominent Democrats jumped on this particular Twitter bandwagon.

On Tuesday, Trump tweeted: "The 13 Angry Democrats (plus people who worked 8 years for Obama) working on the rigged Russia Witch Hunt, will be MEDDLING with the midterm elections, especially now that Republicans (stay tough!) are taking the lead in Polls. No law even remotely requires the separation of children, and we filed a recent lawsuit arguing, in fact, that the Constitution prohibits this policy".

On Saturday, President Donald Trump muddied the issue further by tweeting that parents and children were being separated at the border because of a "horrible law". Miroff covers drug trafficking, border security and transnational crime on The Washington Post's National Security desk.
