2000 families separated at US border in six weeks

Oliver pointed out that the policy was instated by Attorney General and "least fun thing to find in a Kinder egg" Jeff Sessions, saying it was "objectively very bad".

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

"I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13 to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes", Sessions said at a press event Wednesday.

The church continues: "Christian sacred texts should never be used to justify policies that oppress or harm children and families".

The figures show that 1,995 minors were separated from 1,940 adults between 19 April and 31 May 2018.

"Our policy that can result in short-term separation of families is not unusual or unjustified".

Ex-White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate how the Federal Bureau of Investigation was "weaponized" against President Donald Trump during his 2016 campaign.

In the House, top Democrat Nancy Pelosi attacked the separations as a "barbaric" policy that "has to stop". "If they are accompanied by a child, that child is temporarily separated from them as they go through the judicial process". He also listed reasons why the Trump administration holding the Bible up as moral code could be seen a hypocritical, saying, "Let's remember, the Bible's not a big fan of adultery, gluttony, coveting your neighbor's wife, pride, or wrath".

"We will be seeing as we have been seeing there's going to be a shift in that they still may be children, but they were probably accompanied by their parents when they were first entering the USA", said Luis Aranga of Catholic Charities. Once children are separated, they are treated as unaccompanied minors under the care of the Department of Health and Human Services, which houses them in government facilities, puts them in temporary foster care, or releases them to adult sponsors in the United States. We need border security.

"Families belong together", protesters chanted on Sunday, as hundreds gathered outside detention centres in the states of Texas and New Jersey, calling for an end to the practice.

The number represents a dramatic uptick from the almost 1,800 family separations that Reuters reported had happened from October 2016 through February of this year.

Also in the proposal are provisions to protect 1.8 million Daca "Dreamers", eliminate the diversity lottery, and add $25bn for border security.

The bill, a compromise between moderates and conservatives, is expected to be voted on next week.

"I hate the children being taken away", he told reporters.
