2:01 am
forced family break up at the border by working with republicans on new legislation for a change. this is why we need more republicans elected in november. democrats are goodt only three things. high taxes, high crime and obstruction. >> later, he s should get together and work something out. don't wait until after the election because you will lose. several democratic lawmakers chose father's day for the tour of the detention centers along the border. they got a look at the zero tolerance policy. let's get more from nick valencia in brownsville, texas. >> reporter: dave and christine, this is the stop on the father's day tour of the facilities. they wanted to highlight the immigration policy implemented by donald trump. what they called it after seeing what they saw inside the
2:02 am
facilities is zero humanity. >> there is no longer to the policy. the administration is arguing by inflicting this harm on children and parents, this stress, they are sending the message for people not to seek asylum in the united states. it is completely unacceptable under any moral code to inflict trauma on them in order to send some political message to adults somewhere overseas. the president argues this is giving him political leverage. hurting kids to get political leverage is unacceptable. it is evil. >> reporter: one of the democratic lawmakers on the tour was pete welsh of vermont. he says there has been 2,000 children separated from families over the course of the last six weeks. i asked if he heard of any plans to reunite children with
2:03 am
parents. he said right now there is uncertainty. dave and christine. >> nick there in texas. homeland secretary kirstjen nielsen taking to twitter accusing the press and members of congress of quote irresponsible and unproductive reportin she falsely claims we do not have a policy of separating families at the border. she goes on to say there is no reason to illegally cross between ports of entry for anyone. >> the first lady is entering the immigration policy debate. the spokeswoman for melania trump says she hates to see children separated from her families. she believes wed to be a country following laws, but govern with heart. she believes both sides of the aisle will come together to achieve successful immigration reform. >> laura bush lashing out at the
2:04 am
trump administration for separating children from it is rare for the former first lady to weigh in on politics since her husband left office. in the washington post, she says i live in a borderstate. i appreciate the need to protect our international boundaries, but this policy is rule and it breaks my -- is cruel and it breaks my heart. >> let's talk about this with zachary wolfe. let's talk about the administration policy. steve miller is the architect related to immigration. whether the botched rollout of the muslim ban or this issue. here is what he told "the new york times." the separation of the children from families was a simple decision by the administration to have a zero tolerance policy over illegal entry period. here is what his boss, the president, said.
2:05 am
>> i hate the children being taken away. the democrats have to change their law. that's their law. quiet. that's the democrats law. we cane ittonight. we can change it right now. the children -- the children can be taken care of quickly and immediately. the democrats forced that law upon our nation. >> true or false, zach? the democra law? >> the law is the law. the way the law gets there is usually by republicans and democrats voting for something. that is bes the point. this is happening because the trump administration decided to enforce the law in a new way. to make quote/unquote, zero tolerance policy. the only person you can legitimately blame in any reality here is the trump administration for doing this because they are interpreting
2:06 am
it. they made the change. >> the homeland secretary says this is not a policy to separate people at the border. we do not have a policy of separatingilies at the border. we continued the policy from previousadministrations. there is no custodian relationship with the family members or if they broke the law. is she trying to thread ae needle here saying people should not come into the country if they are seeking asylum? they need to go to port of entry and say i need asylum? >> i think it is trying to thread a very, very fine needle in saying our policy is not to do this. it might happen if we have to criminally prosecute you, we will separate you and criminally prosecute you. yes. that is definition of threading the needle in a weird way. >> i wonder if you get the optics which are bad here.
2:07 am
you have laura bush and the corru current first lady here saying this is heartbreaking. i wonder if they will change the tone. >> first off, this week, there are two immigration bills going thugh the house, zach. either directly address the issue as what is likely to come out of the house? does anything get passed? >> if something can get through the house, it has to get through the senate. it is not clear that president trump -- it would have to get through him, too. it is not clear to me he would sign any of the bills out there. he has said he doesn't really like them. the white house through the back door said he would sign them. i'm not sure they always speak for him. he said they don't speak for him. we need to see him actually say i will sign these bills. they don't deal with the underlying isthey don't change quote/unquote democrat law, that
2:08 am
he says is forcing him to do this. >> it is giving fodder for the late night hosts. listen to john oliver from over the weekend. >> the democrats gave us the laws. i want the laws to be beautiful, humane, but strong. >> first, beautiful, humane, but strong? is not how you describe la that's how you describe a viola davis character in a movie that hasn't been written yet, but you will still win an oscar. mocrats did not give them these laws and i cannot stress this enough. there is no law that suddenly required separating parents from their children. this was the result of the deliberate policy choice by jeff sessions. a man so small he can wear and this is true, a wraspberry as a hat. >> that is not a fact. that was a joke. it gives the president's critics am nipmunition when you see the children taken away from the
2:09 am
parents. >> it gives democrats an issue, too? ahead of the mid terms? depo doesn't it hand them a gift? >> i think it does. they will take it and run wit it. i want you to look back at the previous policy like this that the trump administration has faced. the muslim ban or ban on people from majority muslim countries. there was destabilizing obamacare when they could not repeal obamacare, they tried to, you know, sabotage the law. they have not shown himself willing to buckle to public pressure. that is the opposite of what he likes to do. >> i can remember arguing with him about syrian refugees. he just saw no need for young children to come here. >> zach, we will check in with you in 30 minutes. global stocks falling overnight. the u.s. and china inch closer to a trade war. the white house says tariffs are back on for stealing u.s. and
