Laura Bush Blasts Trump Administration for 'Immoral' Family Separations
Harris said his goal was "to close the loopholes" of the catch-and-release policy and bolster family facilities in the border region. "That's traumatising to the children who are innocent victims, and it is contrary to our values in this country".
Trump blamed opposition Democratic lawmakers for the impasse over USA immigration policies, even though Trump's Republican party controls both chambers in Congress, and the family border policies were set by his administration.
"We want safety and we want security for our country", Trump said Monday, playing defense. While the current president has frequently attacked his predecessors, Melania Trump, Michelle Obama, Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton all attended the funeral of former first lady Barbara Bush in April.
Rep. Andy Harris, the only Republican in Maryland's congressional delegation, said Monday he was working with colleagues to increase "family facilities" at the Southwest border so immigration authorities can stop separating children from parents.

Trump plans to meet with House Republicans on Tuesday to discuss pending immigration legislation amid an election-season debate over an issue that helped vault the NY real estate mogul into the Oval Office in 2016.
After the new policy was announced, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the law required the government to separate children from accompanying adults who are undergoing those prosecutions.

"All Americans are rightly horrified by the images we are seeing on the news, children in tears pulled away from their mothers and fathers", Cruz said.
Democrats and some of Trump's own Republicans have admonished the administration for dividing almost 2,000 children from their parents between mid-April and the end of May.
"We must either release both the parents and children - this is the historic get out of jail free practice... or the adult and minor are separated as a result of prosecuting the adult".
Trump's former chief strategist said Republicans would face steep consequences for pushing the compromise bill because it provides a path to citizenship for young "Dreamer" immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.
He blamed Democrats for the impasse, even though his fellow Republicans control both chambers in Congress.
