MSNBC Conservative Steve Schmidt Renounces Trump’s Republican Party

US Chamber of Commerce CEO Thomas Donohue said: "Thousands of children are being forcibly removed from their parents by our government. this is not who we are and it must stop now". Kansas GOP Sen. Pat Roberts said he was "against using parental separation as a deterrent to illegal immigration". "The compromise that's most recent is a compromise within a compromise".

Trump has been under steadily mounting bipartisan pressure to reverse course on his policy, which has resulted in more than 2,000 children being taken from their parents and housed in makeshift cages in an empty big-box store in Texas and other shelters, including a number in NY. In fact, it is new and a near blanket policy in practice and intention. The situation still came in for fierce criticism, but the policy introduced in April by Trump is far more hard line.

What this hardline policy on prosecution means in practice - in lieu of an offer to just be deported - is that children will be separated from parents, who then can be jailed and face court. A reporter played the audio of children screaming after being separated from their parents-which had no visible effect on these monsters.

In a string of morning tweets, the MSNBC contributor called the current Republican Party "a danger to our democracy and values" and decried the separation of migrant parents from their children, calling detention centers "internment camps for babies".

Texan Congresswoman Sheila Lee told CNN she had been to the border and witnessed the "cries and screams of these little ones", as well as mothers saying they feared they would never see their children again.

And it was uncertain if the President's support would be enough to push any legislation through the divided Republican majority.

"You've got to have a heart of stone if you haven't got some empathy", he said. At the time, Matalin expressed ambivalence about Trump and said her party had shifted under her feet. Some key advisers have left, and chief of staff John Kelly appears sidelined. She said the children are well cared for. "But the big point is they elected to come illegally into the United States and this is a technique that no one hopes will be used extensively or for very long". The president said that instead of more judges, he wants more border security. And in tweets about immigration over the weekend he brought up everything from the violent MS-13 gang to European immigration problems to crime in Latin American countries. The first will be a hard-line option written by Rep.

Under those policies, children nabbed at the border with their parents generally can not be held in detention longer than 20 days. According to another, the detention of minors with their parents ran afoul of the 1997 Flores settlement, a ruling that set standards for the detention of minors by prioritizing them for release to the custody of their families and requiring those in federal custody to be placed in the least restrictive environment possible. If adults have been held in detention for longer periods, children typically have been released to a relative or sponsor - and they still can be, although fingerprinting is expected to deter relatives whose status is undocumented from coming forward because of heightened fear. It's not clear yet how the fight over the family separation policy will end differently. Of about 2,000 children separated from parents in the past six weeks about 100 are under the age of 4 years.

Because US courts have ruled that children can not generally be held in detention, letting their parents out would be tantamount to treating children as "get-out-of-jail-free cards", according to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who argues that such treatment would only tempt more lawbreaking. Separating children from their parents contradicts everything we stand for as pediatricians - protecting and promoting children's health.
