Laura Bush says ‘zero tolerance’ immigration policy is ‘cruel’

Laura Bush says ‘zero tolerance’ immigration policy is ‘cruel’

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions also said that domestic and gang violence in immigrants' country of origin would no longer qualify them for political asylum status.

The "zero tolerance" policy, which is responsible for hundreds of children being held in detention centers, is an attempt to prevent illegal immigration. "She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws but also a country that governs with heart", a spokeswoman for the first lady said.

Laura Bush opened the salvo on Sunday with an editorial in the Washington Post, a rare public position on policy from the usually low-key first lady. She singled out the zero tolerance policy as not being the answer, calling it "cruel" and "immoral".

Sweden: Several wounded in shooting in Malmo
At approximately 21:00, an as of yet unidentified man is said to have shot at a crowd at the centre of the city. Five people have been hospitalised but police have not yet issued an official update on their condition.

The failed presidential candidate's plea came in response to President Trump's tweet in which he vowed to stop "some of the worst criminals on earth", from using children to illegally enter the U.S.

Melania Trump, the most reticent first lady since Pat Nixon, has done an admirable thing.

The separation policy follows Attorney General Jeff Sessions' announcement on April 6 of a "zero-tolerance" immigration policy that includes criminally prosecuting illegal border-crossers, thus separating them from children who under US law can not be held in criminal detention centers.

All five living first ladies have now openly criticized the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance policy" of separating families who cross the border illegally.

Melania Trump, 48, the wife of US President Donald Trump, 72, said she "hates" that parents and children have been separated as part of the controversial child separation policy in the US. Children are not detained with their parents when those parents are facing a criminal charge, as per US protocol.

"I hate it. I hate the children being taken away".

However, he said the issue was a "bipartisan problem", saying "what's happening right now is the President is pointing at the Democrats ... and the Democrats are pointing at the President, the administration ... there's culpability on all sides here". "The Democrats have to change their law".

Previously, many illegal immigrants were allowed to remain at liberty while they awaited proceedings.

They face Argentina on Thursday (19:00 BST) and finish their Group D campaign against Iceland on Tuesday 26 June (19:00 BST). Winger Marko Pjaca went on instead, but Dalic apparently wasn't convinced by Kalinic's excuse.

But no law requires children and their parents be separated, only the White House policy, and as The New York Times notes, previous administrations frequently offered leniency to families caught crossing the border.
