The Jewish aide was instrumental in convincing Trump to enact the new zero-tolerance border policies that have led to the dramatic and controversial shift, The New York Times reported. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions also said that domestic and gang violence in immigrants' country of origin would no longer qualify them for political asylum status.

"Separating families is not mandated by law at all - that is an outright lie", Clinton said during remarks at an event in NY.

"We have seen a staggering 350% increase in illegal aliens fraudulently using children to pose as family units to gain entry into this country", said Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

American University professor of government, Jennifer Lawless, said Mrs Trump's intervention in the debate was unusual for a first lady.

Clinton also the former first lady Laura Bush was "absolutely right" when she wrote in an op-ed article in The Washington Post over the weekend: "This zero-tolerance policy is cruel". It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.

Additional reporting from Newsy affiliate CNN. Basically, she wants her husband's administration to be best. Trump will make a rare trip up Pennsylvania Avenue to talk to the House GOP conference about immigration. "That's their law." Trump has falsely placed the blame on Democrats, saying they need to get behind Republican legislative efforts. "It's zero tolerance. I don't think you have to justify it", Bannon, who was also CEO of Trump's presidential campaign, said to ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl in an exclusive interview on "This Week" Sunday. This is a Trump policy - he owns this, and the Democrats are the only ones trying to fix it. Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins discusses this. "These minors are very well taken care of". Since the government is charging the parents in the criminal justice system, any accompanying children are being separated from them, without a clear procedure for where they are being held of for how they will reunited.

Guess what, Melania? While you were sending out these idiotic statements through your spokesperson Democrats in DC were actually working on legislation that will put an end to this practice and not one single Republican was willing to sign onto it.

The Department of Homeland Security said last week that almost 2,000 immigrant children had been separated from their parents over a span of six weeks after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the new "zero tolerance" policy.
