President Trump has repeatedly tried to pass off his administration's new "zero tolerance" policy of separating immigrant children from their parents at the border on Democrats, even as other administration officials have doubled down on the practice.

Melania Trump "hates to see children separated from their families", the first lady's office said Sunday in what the Guardian describes as "a rare statement at odds with her husband's policy".

President Donald Trump is rejecting criticism that his "zero-tolerance" immigration policy has caused family separations at the US southern border, pointing to crime in Germany and gangs in the the reason tough laws are necessary.

Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd said most of the occupants were believed to lack legal permission to be in the US.

"They call it 'zero tolerance, ' but a better name for it is zero humanity, and there's zero logic to this policy", said Senator Jeff Merkley of OR, after leading a group of Democratic lawmakers to the Mexican border. Critics of the policy, however, argue that Trump has the power to end it whenever he so chooses. "The message is that no one is exempt from immigration law".

Current First Lady Melania Trump has also weighed in on the issue but stopped short of calling for the policy to be scrapped.

The Bushes have been notably quiet throughout President Donald Trump's first term, just as they were during Barack Obama's presidency.

U.S. President Donald Trump blasted the German government's internal conflict over immigration Monday, claiming on Twitter that the country's citizens are "turning against" their political leaders.

The detention of children apart from their parents is a result of the policy mandated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and there is no law that requires family separation.

The administration separated 1,995 children from 1,940 adults from April 19 to May 31, a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security said Friday.

Last month, Nielsen told NPR that her agency is merely enforcing existing laws, and that criticism of the zero tolerance policy "is inappropriate and unacceptable".

But images and videos across social media as well as a plethora of well-reported stories have offered substantial evidence to the contrary, relaying stories and even showing tent cities created for undocumented children separated from their families.

The Department of Homeland Security said last week that almost 2,000 immigrant children had been separated from their parents over a span of six weeks after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the new "zero tolerance" policy.

Responding to Nielsen's lie on Sunday, the ACLU explained, "You have a policy of criminally prosecuting any asylum seeker who crosses the border between ports of entry".

Clinton likewise spoke out, suggesting that Trump was using the widely condemned practice to leverage Democrats into accepting immigration limits in legislation they would otherwise oppose. "It is immoral. And it breaks my heart", Mrs.

Ex-president Bill Clinton, a Democrat, also weighed in. "And reuniting them with their families would reaffirm America's belief in & support for all parents who love their children", he tweeted.

"These children should not be a negotiating tool".

Trump's former chief strategist said Republicans would face steep consequences for pushing the compromise bill because it provides a path to citizenship for young "Dreamer" immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.
