U.S. should stop detaining migrants, separating children: U.N.

UN calls on Trump to ‘immediately halt’ policy on separating migrant families at border UN says US must stop separating migrant children from parents

In April, the New York Times estimated that more than 700 children had been taken from parents or guardians in the prior six months, and NBC News estimates that there are now 550 children in custody at the border.

A statement released today from spokeswoman for the United Nations high commissioner for refugees, Ravina Shamdasani, outlines everything wrong with the Trump administration's increasingly enforced policy of separating kids from their parents at the us and Mexico border.

The United Nations has slammed the United States for its practice of separating migrant children from their parents at the border, saying the practice violates global law. It has also said that some adults falsely claim to be the parents of accompanying children, a genuine problem, and that it has to sort out their claims.

In April, Attorney General Jeff Sessions gave direction for all instances of illegal border crossings to be prosecuted.

As of Sunday, almost 300 of the 550 children now in custody at USA border stations had spent more than 72 hours there, the time limit for immigrants of any age to be held in the government's temporary facilities.

More importantly, who covers the spread, and will the final score hit the under or over? Running mate Klay Thompson shot 4-of-11. Thanks to Durant scoring 38, Golden State also beat Cleveland in Game 1 a year ago despite Klay Thompson shooting 3-for-16.

Of the 300 children that have been there longer than 72 hours, nearly half are under the age of 12, according to the report.

Border stations, which are operated by U.S. Border Patrol, most often lack sleeping space or adequate bedding for children, and are intended only as the first stop for children who have been detained at the border.

"If people do not want to be separated from their children, then they should not bring them with them", he added.

President Trump is falsely claiming that "bad legislation passed by the Democrats" has forced his administration to separate children from their families at the border, even though no such law exists. That is correct. But under USA protocol, if parents are jailed, their children are separated from them because the children aren't charged with a crime. "They didn't think this through at all - what it would mean for kids, for their parents and for the operational challenges".

The statement called on the U.S.to adopt "adopt non-custodial alternatives that allow children to remain with their families and fulfil the best interests of the child, their right to liberty and their right to family life".
