In a move to bring the Democrats to submit to an immigration he wanted, the President has separated families.
Those who were suffering the most were the children, not neglecting that such actions would leave parents heart stricken.
It was said that children were kept in cages and some very inhumane conditions.
The whole intent of these actions was Trump’s way of getting the Democrats to back off and allowing his desires to be fulfilled.
It would also signal to all those would want to enter the Country illegally to reconsider committing the act in the future.
The decision by Trump brought criticism for many places including his own wife Melania who wanted them to stop.
Surprisingly enough some within Trump’s quarters were unhappy by his decision, calling on all involved to stop the madness.
“Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform,” the first lady said in the statement, which her office said was issued in response to questions by reporters. “She believes we need to be a Country that follows all laws, but also a Country that governs with a heart.”
It was clear that she didn’t agree with her husband’s approach, but hope that all sides would work together to end family separation.
“Trump claims Democrats are to blame for families’ being broken up,” said Bill Pascrell Jr. of New Jersey. “That is a lie. Republicans control every branch of Government.”
“President Trump could stop this policy with a phone call,” Senator Lindsey Graham. “I’ll go tell him. If you don’t like families’ are separated, you can tell D.H.S. stop doing it.”
“What the administration has decided to do is to separate children from their parents to try to send a message that, if you cross the border with children, your children are going to be ripped away from you,” Susan Collin said.
She shared her views on “Face The Nation” on CBS.
“That is traumatizing to the children, who are innocent victims. And it is contrary to our values in this country,” she added. “We know from years of experience that we need to fix our immigration laws and that using children is not the answer.”
More than 1100 children are reported to be in a large caged facility.
Walter Shaub who is a former Ethics Chief tweeted asking Trump to stop what he is doing.
“Dry your eyes and focus. Your problems are nothing compared to the problems you’re creating for the terrified children you’re ripping from the arms of desperate parents at the border. This is monstrous. Stop it. Stop it now!” he tweeted.
