"While the Trump administration has denied that they have no set policy to separate families at the US-Mexico border, a published DHS guideline shows otherwise.
Kirstjen Nielsen, the secretary of Homeland Security also said in a statement that the policy didn’t exist.
She said “We do not have a policy of separating families at the border,”
However, DHS recently announced that within a six week period ending in May, almost 2000 kids were separated from their parents.
Published DHS guidelines also break down how the separations happen.
Saying quote, “your child or children will be transferred to the US Department of Health and Human Services...where your child will be held in a temporary child shelter or hosted by a foster family.”
Many people including celebrities have criticised the Trump administration for their handling of immigration.
President Trump took to Twitter criticizing the left writing, “The Democrats should get together with their Republican counterparts and work something out on Border Security and Safety. Don’t wait until after the election because you are going to lose.”
