MA congressman says 2018 election could provide 'check' on White House
- Alfred Griffith
Almost universal Democratic condemnation combined with weak and divided attitudes among Republican voters toward the separation of parents and children created a particularly hard situation for GOP officials and opinion leaders. Then, White House adviser Stephen Miller, widely regarded as the architect of President Donald Trump's immigration policy, was called a "fascist" when he, too, attempted to eat at a Mexican restaurant in the Washington, D.C. area.
Sessions, speaking to an audience of Nevada school police officers, said the children were "recklessly sent to the United States by their family members". Among Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters, 19 percent called immigration a priority, up from 10 percent in the spring ― a more modest uptick that left it third in their attention, behind health care and gun policies.
The chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee hedged Sunday when pressed on whether he was confident the Trump administration knows where all the children are and will be able to reunite them with their parents.
Immigration authorities have separated about 2,300 children from their parents in recent weeks, sparking global outrage as images of weeping children emerged.
Trump has been on the attack on immigration for days.
Meanwhile, his administration continued to maintain there was little they could do to appease the border crisis - including carrying out Trump's own wishes to strip migrants of their due process rights.
"It's going to be "catch and release" because they don't have the detention beds for them", the former official said.
Just outside the building where Sessions spoke, more than 200 protesters opposed to the administration's immigration policies blocked a busy road.
The Republican president bowed to public pressure last Wednesday, signing his executive order to "keep families together" in migrant detentions.

Tite also said he would use the same 11 players that were held to a 1-1 draw by Switzerland in the team's opening match. It might have been more, but a penalty won in dubious circumstances by the PSG forward was overturned by VAR.

Harley-Davidson warns European tariffs will cause a 'tremendous cost increase' (HOG)
Trump has regularly pointed to Harley-Davidson as an example of a USA business harmed by trade barriers. It has three assembly plants outside the United States - one each in Brazil, India and Thailand.
The Justice Department on Thursday asked a California court to modify a federal order limiting the ability of United States officials to detain immigrant children for more than 20 days - a central thrust of the executive order signed by President Donald Trump last week that was widely seen as a reversal of the hardline tactic.
They came from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, with children in tow. Children have been sent to far-flung shelters around the country, raising alarm that parents might never know where their children can be found.
"I would think fail right now", Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., the chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus and a key negotiator, said Monday in a CNN interview when asked whether the bill would pass or fail.

The Rev. Karen Foster of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship said American children are taught to pledge allegiance to the flag "with liberty and justice for all".
Detained in cavernous buildings and temporary camps, parents and their kids have languished through separations that in some cases have already lasted a month or more - exceeding the 20-day limit on holding children in federal custody. They met again yesterday but the issue remains hung up on how long children could be detained. The Democrats want open borders and they don't care about crime, and they don't care about our military.
