Disentangling the Stories of Missing and Separated Migrant Children

The policy comes from Trump's own administration, which has chose to enforce criminal charges against people crossing the border illegally with few or no previous offenses.

The reality is more complicated, and the blame can not be placed squarely on Democrats.

That is correct, but Steven Wagner, acting assistant secretary at the Department of Health and Human Services, said the children are not "lost". "If we were to have those fixes in federal law, the migrant crisis emanating from Central America would largely be solved in a very short period of time".

Trump has lashed out at Nielsen and other aides because the number of people illegally crossing the Mexican border has spiked, robbing his ability to campaign on promises of improved border security. There's a lot happening at the southern border.

Placing these children with sponsors is a policy that dates back to the Obama administration.

The agreement will give Homeland Security more access to the personal information of parents, relatives or other adult sponsors seeking custody of the children.

"This speaks to any mom and any dad across party lines, and that's powerful ... we hope that it opens the minds and hearts of people who have remained silent and inactive when it comes to immigration", Gallardo said.

When we asked for evidence of policies separating families, the White House referred us to items determining what happens to unaccompanied immigrant minors.

Did the Trump administration separate children from their parents at the border, then lose track of the children?

"And we didn't have enough shelter facilities, because we had a huge increase, so kids ended up piling up in Border Patrol lock-ups, which are no places for children". Yes, undocumented immigrant children have the constitutional right - under the equal protection clause - to be educated.

The Women's Refugee Commission and the University of Texas School of Law's immigration clinic also joined the complaint. It is a surprise to a lot of people that the U.S. has been detaining-meaning prison, putting families who violated immigration law in prison, it is called immigration detention, but let's remember it is prison-for many years. Parents have also been falsely told that they'll be reunited with a child after serving a sentence for entering the country illegally. Lee Gelernt, the lead lawyer in the ACLU's case against the Trump administration over the separations, calls it "the worst thing I've seen in 25-plus years of doing this work". The funding for immigration courts and judges has increased only modestly over the years as funding and resources for enforcement have increased dramatically.

Advocates note that many families attempting to enter the US are seeking asylum from gangs and criminal activities in their home countries, and as such are not breaking the law. That means that many more people will be sent directly to jail after crossing the border, instead of being allowed temporary freedom while they await deportation hearings or asylum rulings. Both created protections for children in immigration custody.

There is also concern that the Office of Refugee Resettlement within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has reportedly lost track of almost 1,500 of the illegal alien children it has placed with families in the U.S.

It's the decision to prosecute parents that is causing the separations.

That was after Trump lit up social media over the weekend by falsely claiming there was a "horrible law" that separates children from their parents after they cross the border illegally.

"These are not loopholes", said Sen. First, they found the phone number the government lists for its hotline is inaccurate, with two numbers interchanged.

"Trump called the practice 'horrible, ' so if he thinks it's so terrible he ought to end it and not make children pawns as a negotiating tool", said Lee Gelernt, an immigration attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union, which has filed a class-action lawsuit to force the government to stop separating families at the border.

Jessica Vaughan, director of Policy Studies at the Center for Immigration Studies.

Miller's assertion that Democrats are "exclusively and solely" blocking changes to the law and court decisions - which Congress can not overrule - is not backed up by evidence. They showed up alone and were placed with sponsors.
