Protests and facility visits in Texas amid immigration confusion

Trump administration says it knows location of all children

Then-President-elect Donald Trump was of course referring to building a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border, created to keep immigrants Mexico and Central American countries from entering the United States. Only the Pennsylvania facility can house men, and all of the detainees at the Texas centers are women with children.

John Trandem, 42, who owns an automotive services company near Fargo, North Dakota, said he has supported all of Trump's decisions during the border controversy.

Studies, notably a recent one in the journal Criminology, have shown that violent crime appears to fall when more immigrants are living in a community illegally, but the President has repeatedly maintained that crime increases with illegal immigration, a claim he extended to the situation in Germany although Germany itself has refuted it.

Trump said the United States wants people to come in, but in the proper way.

On Saturday, Florida Sen.

While noting that most Border Patrol workers at the facility were trying to do the best they can, Himes said the Congressional delegation was there to see that the children receive "the values and ethic good treatment that we are here to demand".

But the administration reversed course - to an extent - with a June 20 executive order that aims to detain and hold migrant families together, instead of separating children from their families during the process.

In Friday's notice, ICE said the family detention beds should be in state-licensed facilities and allow freedom of movement for detainees, and should preferably be located in states along the southwest border. She said at most they should have been kept out for a few hours. Frederica Wilson and Ted Deutch took 50 red, white and blue balloons with them inside.

"It's very hard to reunite children with their parents because these government agencies were not prepared, and they're not designed, for family separation", he said.

The president has been on the defensive this week because of his "zero tolerance" enforcement policy that has led to at least 2500 migrant children being separated from their parents.

Lawyer Jodi Goodwin said Saturday that another attorney identified the parents at criminal court hearings in McAllen, Texas.

She has been reaching out to the parents at a detention facility in Port Isabel, Texas, to collect information about their cases and their children.

But with more than 2,300 children already separated from families in May and early June, the ripple effects - for families, Congress and the White House - will likely continue to reverberate. The group of lawmakers told reporters there were children sleeping behind bars, on concrete floors and under emergency "mylar" heat-resistant blanks.

She says she has been inundated with requests for help from the parents and the list is still growing.

"This is cruel and inhumane", she said, describing the inside of the facility as a "sea of humanity" of little girls, boys, fathers. California Congresswoman Jackie Speier said it was "for all intents and purposes, a prison".

In recent weeks, more than 2,300 children were taken from their families under a "zero-tolerance" policy in which people entering the USA illegally face prosecution.

"There are still thousands of children who are out there right now untethered to their parents and no coherent system to fix that", Rep. Joe Courtney, a Democrat from CT, told reporters after the tour.

A parent or guardian trying to determine if a child is in the custody of HHS should contact the Office of Refugee Resettlement National Call Center at 1-800-203-7001, or via email information@ORRNCC.com. Children have been sent to shelters around the country, raising alarm that parents might never know where their children can be found. Protests were also planned for Fort Worth, where the Texas Democratic Convention is being held, and Homestead, Florida.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement now has three family detention facilities - a 100-bed center opened in Pennsylvania in 2001 and two much larger facilities opened in Texas in 2014.

The Democratic lawmakers plan to visit detention facilities Saturday in McAllen and Los Fresnos.
