I sent a letter asking the United Nations to send observers to investigate the unconscionable separation of families at the border.
The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a government agency that apprehends illegal immigrants, told Hindustan Times: "Based on information obtained by the US Border Patrol at the time of apprehension, it appears that seven detainees now housed at Sheridan may have been separated from family members".
Currently, Nielsen's department must transfer them to the Department of Health and Human Services after 72 hours if they are unaccompanied, or release them after 20 days if they're with parents or other caregivers. And yes, he housed unaccompanied children in tent cities.
But that information seemed to conflict with a statement from a division inside HHS. But immigration advocates criticize that move as allowing a more indefinite detention of families until criminal and removal proceedings are completed, signaling legal battles ahead. In the past, the government released entire families once the clock ran out. It also calls into question numerous administration's recent claims about the basis of the "zero tolerance" policy that was announced by Sessions in April.
I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our global boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. "You hear about people coming into our country illegally, breaking our laws and paying the consequences for it, right?"
Republican leaders in the House are trying to put together an immigration bill that would keep immigrant children in detention indefinitely, but housed with their parents. Since early May, 2,342 children have been separated from their parents after crossing the Southern U.S. border, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

IG Report: Comey’s Handling of Clinton Investigation ‘Negatively Impacted’ FBI
The report may give rise to the debate over the extent to which Comey's actions secured Trump's victory. He was briefed on the report yesterday, but it may not have been exactly what he was hoping for.
In the end, under increasing pressure from his own party, Trump chose to do just that.
Trump's executive order states the administration will "maintain family unity, including by detaining alien families together where appropriate and consistent with law and available resources".
A potential executive order could emerge as a fallback option for the administration if it wants to alleviate the crisis should the House bill not pass - but talk that it is a possibility seems likely to undermine momentum for Republican senators to take a tough immigration vote. Trump told reporters at the White House Wednesday he would be "signing something" shortly on the family separations. "Ivanka feels very strongly", Trump said. "It's very important. I'll be signing something in a little while that's going to do that and the people in this room want to do that and they're working on various pieces of legislation to get it done". They believed Trump and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen when they falsely claimed that they had no choice but to enforce an existing law. "We have already started". "And they are going for the country extremely well", the president said.
Even so, the executive order is not necessarily a panacea. "Locking up whole families is no solution at all".
Another center is planned for Houston, The Associated Press reported. "We are especially heartbroken and enraged by stories of breastfeeding children being taken from their mothers' embrace".
Another user asked him to donate to RAICES Texas, an organisation that helps with legal defences for immigrants to the United States, or to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), one of the biggest pro-civil rights groups in the US.
