Images of children torn screaming from their parents or children sitting crying in cages is the point. Other reports claimed Melania and Ivanka Trump appealed to his humanity and that's why he ended the policy.

Adding to the president's border frustrations: a federal judge in California blocked an administration asylum seeker policy that returns migrants back to Mexico after entering the us illegally while their requests are processed.

He thinks the separations work to deter migrants from coming. One of those power struggles among White House aides?

But McAleenan has spoken publicly about the need for USA aid dollars to countries such as Hondorus, El Salvador and Guatemala - from where many recent undocumented migrants originate. "I forgot. I'm so sorry".

The sources told CNN the president also wanted families separated even if they were apprehended within the US, in order to deter other migrants from entering.

"This is about how we as Americans define ourselves", Naftali said. To deny that fact benefits exactly no one except Stephen Miller himself and his fellow white nationalists.
