Mayor learns more than 200 separated migrant children in NYC

Parents who are found to have crossed the border illegally with their children are arrested, but because the children themselves have not committed a crime, they are not allowed to stay with the parents.

House Speaker Paul Ryan says the House will vote on the immigration bill Wednesday but offered no back-up plan if the measure fails. Federal agencies are working to set up a centralized family-reunification center in Port Isabel, Texas, the official said, and it isn't clear how numerous 500 children are still being detained with their families.

Ms Nielsen is understood to be going to the White House to discuss the border problems with Mr Trump's team. Existing policies place the burden on parents to find their children in Department of Health and Human Services custody and seek to reunite with them.

Also playing a role: First lady Melania Trump. He argued that empathy for immigrants is a core American value, and he pointed up "the cruelty of ripping children from their parents' arms".

Two things are very clear: first, the sights and sounds of crying children and infants in cage-like border facilities are going to damage Trump and his party politically if they persist.

Obama has been the one of the primary targets of blame from Republicans for the crisis that exploded last week after it was announced about 2,000 children had been separated from adults as part of the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy.

The effort would mark a dramatic turnaround for an administration that has been insisting, wrongly, that it has no choice but to separate families apprehended at the border because of the law and a court decision. Bob Carey said, "This is child abuse being perpetrated by a government".

The action, according to people familiar with it, wouldn't end the zero tolerance policy, but would aim to keep families together while they are in custody and ask the Department of Defense to help house the detained families. If children are to be sent here he should demand paperwork connecting those children to a parent somewhere. He had called on Democratic lawmakers to stop the family separations, even though his fellow Republicans control both chambers in Congress and his own administration implemented the current policy.

Under a court settlement, the federal government can not hold the children for more than 20 days.

The children are classified as unaccompanied minors, a legal term generally used for children who cross the border alone and have a possible sponsor in the US willing to care for them.

The more conservative bill from Republican Representative Bob Goodlatte also would deny the chance of future citizenship to "Dreamers", who are immigrants brought illegally into the United States years ago as children. Other recent rulings, upheld on appeal, affirm the children's rights to a bond hearing and require better conditions at the Border Patrol's short-term holding facilities. The decision did not state parents must be released.
