The 23-year-old singer responded to it by tweeting on Monday, "I wonder what #SundayMorning is like for the parents of 1500 lost children your father is responsible for". At a White House briefing Tuesday, senior policy adviser Stephen Miller attributed what he labeled "the current immigration and border crisis and all of the attendant concerns it raises" to the "exclusive product of loopholes in federal immigration laws that Democrats refuse to close".

USA laws and legal precedent limit the time juveniles can be detained, so those caught crossing the border alone are often released to adult sponsors in the United States.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has defended the Trump administration's practice of separating children from parents when the family is being prosecuted for entering the U.S. illegally, telling a Senate committee earlier this month that removing children from parents facing criminal charges happens "in the United States every day".

Halsey wasn't the only one to lay into Trump's photo. Then, if the adult wants to return home, she or he is reunited with her child and they're sent back together.

That certainly makes it sound like Oha Suta is gearing up to deliver the first real details on Pokemon for Nintendo Switch . An "all-new core series" Pokemon RPG is also in development, due out in the second half of next year.

"Put pressure on the Democrats", he tweeted Saturday, "to end the disgusting law that separates children from (their) parents once they cross the Border into the U.S".

In an interview with NPR's Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep Tuesday, former President Barack Obama's domestic policy director, Cecilia Muñoz, stated unequivocally that separating children from their parents was not a policy the Obama administration followed. It is. Children of immigrants are being held in cages, like dogs, at ICE detention centers, sleeping on the floor.

Trump later posted a tweet calling out Democrats again for the law, arguing that it's up to them to end the policy and reform other problems in the immigration system.

"If we want to talk about optics, I'm sure she was just like, 'This is a handsome photo of me and my son, I'm going to post it, etc., etc.,'" McCain said, "but yes, when you are the special adviser to the president of the United States of America, whether they like it or not, they got to think about optics". In normal circumstances, the photo is pretty innocuous, but due to reports that the United States government lost 1,500 migrant children who entered the U.S.at the Mexican border, it comes off as tone deaf.

Later, it cancelled storm surge warnings for most of the Florida peninsula, saying the Panhandle remained the focus of concern. With maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour (72 kph), Alberto was moving north at 9 miles per hour (14 kph).

HHS recently added 30-day follow-up phone calls to the longstanding program.

As the immigration debate lit up social media over the weekend, Trump on Saturday (Sunday NZT) falsely claimed that "we have to break up families" at the border because "the Democrats gave us that law".

"These bad pictures are from 2014, when the government's challenge was reconnecting unaccompanied minors who showed up at the border with family or a safe sponsor", he wrote.

Until recently, families suspected of entering the USA illegally were permitted to stay together until the case was completed, Time reports. (Children, however, were not wrested from parents and detained alone.) ATEP also sent those men back across the border in unfamiliar and sometimes risky places, leaving them vulnerable to crime.
