I Would Be Willing to ‘Shut Down’ Government Over Border Security

Detaining children for more than 20 days is now illegal, but the GOP is considering several approaches to make it happen. Congress must pass the bills to keep the government funded by September 30 to prevent a shutdown.

When asked about conditions in family detention centres, he said, "I think the best way to describe them is more like a summer camp", adding that the facilities include soccer fields, an abundance of food and water, and medical care.

"They are trying to defer that fight until these other things that aren't controversial can get put to bed", Cornyn said.

The committee includes several Democrats who have been among the sharpest critics of the family separations, including Durbin and Senator Kamala Harris of California.

He and other administration officials told senators that the government had mechanisms in place to return children to their parents after they were separated, but they had to improvise a new reunification system under orders from a federal judge. I want Maximum Border Security and respect for ICE and our great Law Enforcement Professionals!

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said shutdowns represent "a failure to govern effectively". To help discourage border crossing, his administration also began separating children from their detained parents, rather than following the policy used by previous administrations, which generally released the entire family pending court action. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., asked every federal immigration official at Tuesday's hearing over family separations to answer a particular question: "Did anyone on this panel say, maybe [separating families] wasn't such a good idea?" Lindsey Graham (R-SC), "deter some people from bringing their children here".

U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee in Los Angeles ordered the Trump administration to obtain consent or a court order before administering any psychotropic medications to migrant children, except in cases of dire emergencies.

"Defendants" reasoning suffers from the "logical fallacy of post hoc, ergo propter hoc.' Literally, "after this, therefore because of this, '" she said".

If a shutdown were to happen, it would be the third such instance in 2018, after a shutdown in January when the Trump Administration and Congressional Republicans wrestled with Democrats over protection for "Dreamers", a group of young immigrants.

Trump tweets that he’s willing to shut down the government over immigration
House Republicans released a spending bill this month that provides $5 billion next year to build Trump's wall, a major boost. He also repeated his attacks on immigration law itself, incorrectly asserting that "they want us to hire thousands of judges".

Trump has touted his wish for a wall along the US-Mexico border since his campaign, and has previously claimed he would be able to get Mexico to cover the cost.

The data do not support this assertion. Most can't post bond and are being held pending hearings.

The abolition of the Flores standard is something the administration has long sought.

The AP reported last month that children held at an immigration detention facility in Virginia said they were beaten while handcuffed, locked in solitary confinement and left nude and cold in concrete cells.

"We should not have to choose between tearing children from their parents and enforcing our nation's lawful immigration system", they wrote.

It's unlikely, however, that a bill to repeal Flores can pass in the Senate, where Democrats have compared the move to the establishment of "internment camps".

Albence noted what he said was the "tremendous effort and success" of family reunifications, and that agency officials had "performed their duties with professionalism, dignity and compassion, despite the myriad false allegations and misinformation that are propagated daily".

"Who here can tell me who is responsible, which public official, which member of this administration, is responsible for zero tolerance and family separations?" he went on. Those who do not sign such a waiver may be separated once again.
