2,000 Families Separated After Being Caught Crossing Border Illegally

Natalie Manzanares her father Bob Kachurek and her children ages 4 2 and 1 took part in the Cleveland rally and march for Families Belong Together a growing national outcry against the forced separation of children from their families at the U.S.-M

Last month, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the policy, promising "100 percent" of immigrants who enter the United States unlawfully will be prosecuted.

Protesters gathered in more than a dozen states - including California, Texas, Michigan and NY - on Thursday to bring attention to what organizers say is the administration's "cruel and inhumane treatment of immigrants and asylum seekers". "Having children does not give you immunity from arrest and prosecution". On Friday, President Trump joined the critics, with a familiar caveat.

People took to the streets in response to the Trump administration's new "zero tolerance" policy on immigration, which has led to the separation of migrant parents from their children.

The rally was made up mainly of families with children who were sympathetic to the immigrants' situation. Children as young as 18 months are torn from their mother's arms by the USA government.

The Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy has been widely criticized, even by figures in the president's base.

Darylle Sheehan said she went to the rally because she believes there is no reason to take the children from their parents. With deportations on the rise and the possibility that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will be terminated, the fear of families being separated and family members being sent back to a country they hardly know or where they are in danger is justified. School officials are noticing higher rates of behavioral issues, depression, and anxiety among immigrant students, according to a study done by the UCLA Civil Rights Project. Children and families are suffering in terms of physical health too. Heart-breaking stories, like the story of Mr. Muñoz, are not accidental, they are the byproduct of an inhumane, anti-family, value-deficient policy-and there are many more stories in the vein of Mr. Muñoz's story to tell.

Wiggins said she is fully aware that a discussion about immigration must take place in this country and that some people in Rexburg see nothing wrong with this new policy. That they needed to hide. When children are not healthy and do not feel safe, their physical and mental development is negatively affected.

Compromise in peril: House Republicans were poised to float two immigration plans, the more moderate of which would hit many of Trump's wishes (including $25 billion for border security) while ending the separation policy, reports the Hill.
