Will This Girl Be the Face of U.S. President Donald Trump's Policy on Immigration?

Trump's comments come two days after DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen posted a multi-tweet thread criticizing the media for supposedly "misreporting" the facts surrounding the administration's "zero-tolerance" policy, which aims to crack down on immigrants entering the country through the USA southern border.

Addressing the National Sheriffs' Association annual conference in New Orleans, Nielsen argued that many loopholes must be closed to stem the flow of illegal immigration. "We want safety and we want security for our country". We have to do our job.

"We have to do our job; we will not apologize doing for our job ... We have sworn to do this job".

The Trump administration's zero-tolerance policy at the border has been the focus of several dispatches from Border Patrol facilities in Texas where hundreds of migrants-many of them children-are being kept in a "series of cages created by metal fencing". "So we don't have a balanced view of what's happening". "If you smuggle illegal aliens across an extraordinarily unsafe journey, we will prosecute you".

"We do not have a policy of separating families at the border".

"To me, Steve Miller is like Iago, whispering in the president's ear", she said.

In a related development Monday, the conservative nonprofit government watchdog Judicial Watch announced it has filed a Freedom of Information Act suit in federal court seeking to force the Department of State to release documents regarding the resettlement in the USA of refugees from war-torn Syria.

Under current law, it is not legal to detain whole families who cross the border illegally.

We had 20 finishes but we should have make the goalkeeper work harder. "So I think we go with that mentality". We've done a lot of preparation, which has been building up for a long time .

A spokeswoman for Melania Trump told CNN on Sunday that the first lady "hates to see children separated from their families". "We need somebody there with integrity". Laura Bush penned an op-ed from The Washington Post, claiming that it "breaks my heart". But in the meantime, he said, "The United States will not be a migrant camp and it will not be a refugee holding facility".

"The children are not being used as a pawn, we are trying to protect the children", she said. "This is your policy", Democratic U.S. Representative Hakeem Jeffries said in New Jersey. She therefore has no choice, she says, but to separate parents and children during detention.

"Excuse me it's a POLICY and you are showing your cowardice".

During a press briefing at the White House, Nielsen corrected a false claim by MSNBC's Kristen Welker who claimed that Trump's "zero tolerance" policy - where all adult border crossers are prosecuted whether or not they arrived with children - is a first for the United States' immigration procedures.

However, no law requires the administration to separate families at the border.

President Donald Trump's administration has repeatedly denied that its policy is to separate children from their parents when they cross the U.S. border illegally, but its own internal documents contradict that. The beginning of the unraveling of a democracy she said, is when the body that makes the laws, instead of changing the law, instead tells the enforcement body not to enforce the law. "Don't wait until after the election because you are going to lose!"

Nielsen was asked why Trump hasn't shown compassion toward the separated illegal-alien children and why he doesn't pause the separations while Congress works on a fix.

Valadao and a number of other House Republicans are pushing the party to pass an immigration bill later this week that would require the government to keep detained children with at least one of their parents, a tacit rejection of the Trump policy.

Earlier Monday he tweeted: "It is the Democrats fault for being weak and ineffective with Boarder Security and Crime".
