AGs, including Iowa's demand Sessions to change immigration policies

AGs, including Iowa's demand Sessions to change immigration policies

In addition to all five former first ladies stating this policy is immoral, Joe Straus, the Republican Speaker of the Texas state House wrote a letter to Trump stating in part, "I respectfully ask that you move immediately to rescind the policy that General Sessions announced in April and any other policies that have led to an increase in family separations at the border". "Illegal entry" constitutes a Class B misdemeanor - a crime that has a maximum punishment of only six months in jail.

In the past few weeks, the government has separated children from their parents.

New Orleans will join a nationwide protest against federal immigration policies separating immigrant families from their children on June 30.

The letter also reads, "These practices directly interfere with the efforts of our offices and other law enforcement officials--locally, nationally, and internationally--to prevent and prosecute crime".

"We do not want to separate children from their parent", Sessions continued.

Sessions criticized the Obama administration when parents who separated themselves from their children by sending them on their own or with human trafficking operations to the U.S./Mexico border.

A bipartisan group of former USA attorneys have released a letter that calls for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end his department's "zero tolerance" immigration policy.

A group of 70 former U.S. Attorneys sent Attorney General Jeff Sessions a letter on Tuesday morning requesting that Sessions end his "dangerous, expensive" "zero tolerance" policy, which they claim is "inconsistent with the values of the institution in which we served".

Mr. Trump, facing bipartisan criticism of the policy, signed an executive order Wednesday afternoon saying families should be kept together where possible.

"Now, under your policy, because children can not accompany their arrested parents to an adult criminal detention center, these children, including infants and toddlers, are routinely separated from their parents", the letter stated.

Dozens of former USA attorneys, appointed under Democratic and Republican administrations, also pressed Sessions in a separate letter Tuesday to end the practice, calling it a "radical departure" from previous DOJ policy.

The Methodists who signed onto the formal complaint Monday are among countless faith leaders who have widely condemned the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration agenda.

In the letter, Sessions is also accused of immorality for the use of violence against the children who attempted to stop the separation from their parents who are being deported.

In a letter addressed to Session's pastors, 640 clergy and laity urge "some degree of accountability" for the top law enforcement official in the country, who they say is affiliated with United Methodist churches in Alabama and the suburbs of Washington, D.C. "If you don't like that, then don't smuggle children over our border".

As of Wednesday, June 20, the Trump administration has set up multiple "tender age" shelters to lock infants and young children that the USA forcibly removed from their parents at the border.
