1,995 minors separated from adults during six-week period, DHS says

HERIKA MARTINEZ  AFP

Under a "zero tolerance" policy announced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Homeland Security officials are now referring all cases of illegal entry for criminal prosecution.

Part of that approach has been separating children from their parents who are detained. The Group of Seven summit gathering of top industrialized democracies finished in disarray after the U.S. president abruptly rejected its consensus statement and bitterly attacked Canada's PM Justin Trudeau.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the current Archbishop of NY, also debunked the idea that family separation is supported by the Bible.

"When we ignore our laws at the border we obviously encourage hundreds of thousands of people a year to likewise ignore our laws and illegally enter our country, creating an enormous burden on our law enforcement, our schools, our hospitals, and social programs", he said. "If they are accompanied by a child, that child is temporarily separated from them as they go through the judicial process".

"I certainly wouldn't sign the more moderate one".

Since then, stories of weeping children torn from the arms of their frightened parents have flooded the media and the policy has been widely criticized by church groups, politicians and children's advocates who say it is inhumane.

"He cites the Bible like a guy challenging someone else's word in Scrabble", Meyers said of Sessions. This is the Trump administration's decision and they could put an end to this immoral policy today. We need a wall.

"These images are eerily reminiscent of the Japanese American internment camps of World War II, now considered to have been one of the most shameful episodes in U.S. history." . The American Civil Liberties Union has called on DHS to reverse its plan to adopt the new information-sharing rules and to do what the group says "is truly in the best interest of children".

Saudi-led forces battle Shiite rebels south of key Yemen port
The Houthi-run Al Masirah satellite news channel claimed rebel forces hit a Saudi coalition ship near Hodeida with two missiles. Launching ballistic missiles towards densely populated cities and villages breaches the worldwide humanitarian law, he added.

A bus full of children separated from their families, just passed us.

The policy has also provoked disquiet among the conservative evangelical community.

"Congresswoman Jenkins does not support forcibly separating children and their parents and believes the practice, which is not new to this Administration but has increased in volume under it, has gone on long enough", her office said in a statement.

Her husband's administration has shown little sign that it will budge on the issue and has instead doubled down, even citing the Bible to justify its conduct.

India's Modi hopes historic cricket match will boost ties with Afghanistan
However, the 33-year-old also feels that the Afghans may well emulate the success it achieved in the shorter version of the game. Afghanistan further have two quality spinners in Mohammad Nabi and Zahir Khan , both of whom were part of the IPL this year.

Yes. While Trump's new immigration policy doesn't call for families to be separated, as pointed out by Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, the policy makes separations inevitable. "If you afflict him at all, and if he does cry out to Me, I will surely hear his cry; and My anger will be kindled, and I will kill you with the sword, and your wives shall become widows and your children fatherless". You should stop trying.
