AGs, including Iowa's demand Sessions to change immigration policies

Sessions: harsh migrant policy aims to end 'lawlessness'

Jeff Sessions Says Immigration Laws & Border Wall Will End Family Separation

The letter is addressed to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

"Until now, every administration has chosen a path that has balanced the need for effective enforcement and deterrence with humanity and compassion", said the four-page letter to Sessions.

"I have critics from a lot of different areas".

The children are being held separately from parents who are being prosecuted under the administration's "zero-tolerance" policy for illegal border crossings.

In a statement released Monday, the conference's Bishop David Graves decried separating children from their parents as "unjust acts". "Since Jesus' time it has been God's intent to keep families together, despite insensitive governments".

Horrific reports have emerged of babies sleeping in cages under foil blankets. "The ways in which the children are taken away from their parents, this is going to leave scars on those kids and their parents and their families". While Sessions previously tried to use the Bible to defend the separation of children and their parents during the deportation processes that he has enforced, the letter signed by a large number of clergy members is accusing him of the "dissemination of doctrines contrary to the standards of doctrine of the United Methodist Church".

Immigrant children separated from families won't be reunited right away, administration says
In theory, the intent of the executive order is to keep children who have crossed the border with their parents while in custody . We are also going to count on Congress, obviously, but we are signing an executive order in a little while.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), for example, said, "President Trump's family separation policy leaves a dark stain on our nation". "Tearing children away from parents who have made a risky journey to provide a safe and sufficient life for them is unnecessarily cruel and detrimental to the well-being of parents and children". That conflicts with a 2015 court order that prohibits the detention of children for more than 20 days, which means lawsuits are imminent. U.S. Border Patrol has separated more than 2,300 children from their parents at the border, with no plans for reuniting them. "We will not apologize for doing our job", she said. "That is what we intend to do, and we ask Congress to be our partners in this effort".

"We do not want adults to bring children into this country unlawfully, either, placing them at risk". "We do not want to separate parents from their children". They said the "misuse" of that line from Scripture was in "stark contrast to Disciplinary commitments to supporting freedom of conscience and resistance to unjust laws".

The secretary's comments came just before Sessions' appearance on Fox News, where his unstinting defense included a blunt warning to immigrants and their families that contradicted Nielsen.

A few moments later he finally chose to leave, kicking a ball away with his left foot before limping away beside the team doctor. For Neymar or any other player for Brazil , the pressure is always there, this is expected.
