'We will not apologize': Trump DHS chief defends immigration policy

Democrats, activists rally against Trump's family separation policy

"There is videos. There is TVs", Nielsen said at Monday's White House press briefing.

"There is no question that President Trump administration's policy of separating mothers and fathers from their children is created to impose severe mental suffering on these families, in order to deter others from trying to seek safety in the USA".

Cruz said his bill would build temporary shelters where immigrant families could stay together in cases where there was no threat to the children's safety, double the number of federal immigration judges and speed handling of asylum applications.

The reporter then challenged Nielsen on her previous claim that the children are all being well-cared for, saying "how can you make that claim if you don't know where they are?"

"These are not normal times, because we have a president who lies every single day and he expects the people around him - he thrusts them forward as he did with Kirstjen Nielsen yesterday to lie for him", Hirono told reporters. "I hate the children being taken away", he said Friday.

"Somehow we've conflated everything, but there's two separate issues: 10,000 of those now in custody were sent by their parents, with strangers, to undertake a completely risky and deadly travel across the desert alone", Nielsen said in response. Nielsen repeated a false claim that the separation was not the result of a new policy, despite it being the direct result of Attorney General Jeff Sessions announcing a "zero tolerance" approach last month. Asked if the recordings, along with pictures and more that have emerged in recent days, are an unintended effect of the administration's approach, she said, "I think that they reflect the focus of those who post such pictures and narratives". We give them meals and we give them education and we give them medical care.

Earlier Monday he tweeted: "It is the Democrats fault for being weak and ineffective with Boarder Security and Crime". "This Department will not longer stand by and watch you attack law enforcement for enforcing the laws passed by Congress".

Congressional lawmakers met with men, women and children detained at the worldwide boundary in several immigration detention facilities, where Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi called President Trump's "zero tolerance" immigration policy "an utter atrocity that debases America's values and our legacy as a beacon of hope, opportunity and freedom". If they have children accompanying them, the young people are placed in the custody of the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement, because children can not be held in adult facilities. But Monday's statement marks the first time the Democratic senator has called for the DHS secretary's resignation, her office confirmed to CNN.

Migrants Killed in Possible Human Smuggling Rollover Crash
Another passenger, also reported to be a USA citizen, is under arrest in connection with the possible case of human smuggling. That agent stopped one vehicle and radioed a description of the other two vehicles to other agents, the agency said.

Separating children from the parents is used as a measure to control those who try to enter the USA illegally. ABC News' Marcus Moore, who visited the Rio Grand Valley centralized processing center in McAllen, Texas, on Sunday, said about 200 protesters had gathered outside the facility chanting "No estan solos", or "You are not alone".

At least 2,700 children have reportedly been separated from the parents at the border between Oct, 2017 and May 2018.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-California) was the first lawmaker to demand that she step down.
