President Trump doubles down on immigration amid backlash

Customs and Border Protection children who've been taken into custody related to cases of illegal entry into the United States rest in one of the cages at a facility in McAllen Texas Sunday

People across the USA have been organizing rallies against Trump's policies after a series of news pieces reported on the inhumane treatments of immigrants and the separation of families, intensifying political pressure on the government, sparking national outrage, and prompting Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, to call for ending the policy saying such regulations "punish children for their parents' actions".

Trump, who has made a tough stance on immigration a centrepiece of his presidency, has staunchly defended his administration's actions.

Bush penned an op-ed, which appeared in the Washington Post on Father's Day.

"If you don't have Borders, you don't have a Country!". Feinstein's office to let her know I want to help her put a stop to this human rights disaster at the border.

Two of the top US business groups, the US Chamber of Commerce and the Business Roundtable, decried the separation policy on Tuesday and called for its immediate cessation. "It is immoral. And it breaks my heart", wrote Bush in an opinion piece.

Women of faith gather outside the U.S. Customs and Border Protection headquarters to call on the Trump administration to halt its policy of detaining immigrant children separated from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border, during a demonstration in Washington, U.S., June 19, 2018. It beefs up border security, clamps down on illegal entries and reinforces other immigration laws.

So far, 2,000 children have been separated from their families since the United States began enforcing a "zero-tolerance" policy at the border.

The audio surfaced as politicians and advocates flocked to the U.S. -Mexico border to visit U.S. immigration detention centres and turn up the pressure on the Trump administration. "We need borders, we need security, we need safety", Mr. Trump said.

"#CHANGETHELAWS Now is the best opportunity ever for Congress to change the ridiculous and obsolete laws on immigration".

"(President Donald Trump) could pick up the phone and stop the separation of families seeking refuge in the US.

"The time is now for the White House to end the cruel, tragic separations of families", said Sen. "These are crippling loopholes that cause family separation, which we don't want". The president of the American Academy of Pediatrics rightly calls it child abuse. The former first lady used the holiday as a launching-off point to discuss the issue.

"This issue certainly has tugged at people on all sides of the aisle, whether they're elected officials or private citizens".

The aunt said she had been able to talk to her sister, 29-year-old Cindy Madrid, but that Alison and her mother had been separated and unable to speak to one another.

While the First Lady role has no basis in the Constitution, the position has often led its holder to have a special moral authority above partisan politics.

In the Senate, Republican Senator Ted Cruz, who ran unsuccessfully against Trump in 2016 for their party's presidential nomination, said he would introduce legislation this week to halt family separations.

"The real problem is the immigration system is broken and Congress is not doing anything and the president we have does not care about families", Pineda said.

The eight-minute recording includes a US Border Patrol agent joking about the cries of the children, comparing them to an "orchestra". I think the answer to family separation is: "Don't separate families while you're enforcing the law", Cornyn told reporters.
