UN calls on Trump to ‘immediately halt’ policy on separating migrant families at border

But in a tweet, Trump, who demanded the separation policy be enforced at the beginning of May, blamed opposition Democrats for it.

"Border security laws should be changed but the Dem (ocrat) s cant get their act together".

"The use of immigration detention and family separation as a deterrent runs counter to human rights standards and principles", she said. Announced April 6 by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the new policy directs authorities to prosecute all instances of illegal border crossings, even against people with few or no previous offenses.

Explosion rocks Hawaii's Kilauea volcano, sending ash 1 mile high
At least 87 homes have been destroyed by the Kilauea volcano eruption in the four weeks since lava began flowing from its summit. Last Sunday, the USGS piloted a drone to help an emergency crew navigate the harrowing landscape to save a life.

Immigration officials said at least 550 children are in custody after being separated from their parents, who broke the law by crossing into the US illegally.

He said the majority of children coming illegally to the United States are teenagers, not infants.

7.7% GDP growth shows Indian economy is on right track: Piyush Goyal

Most crossing the USA southern border are from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador where there is rampant violence and persecution targeting children and young adults, he said.

Under that policy, parents must be separated from children, and the children are handed over to a separate agency where they are then supposed to be placed in the charge of other USA guardians.

HHS is responsible for finding shelter for migrant children, as well as matching them with relatives or foster parents in the country, but it takes 45 days on average to find a sponsor for a child, according to a spokesperson for the department's Administration for Children and Families, which cares for 11,200 unaccompanied children. However, the statement by the United Nations increased the pressure on him and his administration to reverse the policy, and that, at least, is a positive development. In April, the New York Times estimated that more than 700 children had been taken from parents or guardians in the prior six months, and NBC News estimates that there are now 550 children in custody at the border.

"The majority of people arriving at the U.S.'s southern border have fled Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador-in many cases either because of rampant insecurity and violence, or because of violations of a range of other rights, such as health, education, and housing", she noted. The UN states that there's "nothing normal about detaining children".
