First ladies past and present voice concerns over separation policy

US border authorities are executing the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy towards undocumented immigrants.

"The former Democratic presidential candidate also called out Attorney General Jeff Sessions for using a Bible passage to defend the harsh immigration policy".

Clinton also said the White House's claim that separating families is mandated by law is "an outright lie" and criticized people for using the Bible to justify the policy.

During one recent six-week period, the government said almost 2,000 minors were separated from their parents or adult guardians - a figure that only stoked the firestorm.

American University professor of government, Jennifer Lawless, said Mrs Trump's intervention in the debate was unusual for a first lady.

Melania is not the only First Lady to condemn the policy, as former US First Lady Laura Bush criticised the policy in the Washington Post newspaper today. She called the policy "cruel", "immoral", and one that "breaks her heart".

"The test of any nation is how we treat the most vulnerable among us", Clinton said.

Democrats, though, say his zero tolerance policy of losing criminal charges against illegal immigrants has spurred the separations.

Trump plans to meet with House Republicans on Tuesday 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 children are passed into the care of the US Department of Health and Human Services, the British Broadcasting Corporation reports.

As a result of the policy, more adults have been jailed, which has in turn led to their children being separated from them.

"We don't want kids to be separated from their parents", Ryan told reporters in Washington.

About 2,000 children have been separated from their parents or guardians over six weeks, according to U.S. authorities, since the Trump administration announced that all migrants illegally crossing the Mexican border would be arrested, regardless of whether the adults were seeking asylum.

Despite Sessions' public announcement of the strategy, President Donald Trump has continually heaped blame on Democrats, saying the party must "change their law" to stop the separations. Our government should not be in the business of warehousing children in converted box stores or making plans to place them in tent cities in the desert outside of El Paso. "I visited Thailand and witnessed firsthand the trauma of parents and children separated by circumstances beyond their control", the statement said.
