Kirstjen Nielsen: The woman enforcing Trump's new immigration policy

Customs and Border Protection U.S. Border Patrol agents conduct intake of illegal border crossers at the Central Processing Center

The eight-minute recording includes a US Border Patrol agent joking about the cries of the children, comparing them to an "orchestra".

So it has fallen to her to carry out Trump's most fiercely held objective: stopping illegal immigration.

While it is hard for aides to predict what the traditionally free-wheeling Trump will say once he takes the stage before a campaign crowd, Michael Glassner, the COO of Trump's 2020 campaign, said the President will discuss economic growth, trade and his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"We need you to tell him we reject this mean policy". He has resisted calls to reverse the separation policy, saying any change must come through Congress.

"I urge the Administration and all who defend this arbitrary and misguided policy of separating and caging children in makeshift shelters to re-read the words inscribed at the base of our Statue of Liberty: 'Give me your exhausted, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free...' What we have seen in these past several days is a violation of America's invitation and promise to all who seek democracy's shelter, and it must stop".

"Democrats are the problem".

The spokesman was asked if Mrs May would raise the issue with Mr Trump but would only say that the UK's own policy was "humane" and "we believe that we have a humane system".

Several White House aides, led by adviser Stephen Miller, have encouraged the president to make immigration a defining issue for the midterms.

U.S. public opinion appears divided along partisan lines on the family separations, with two thirds of all voters opposed, but 55 percent of Republicans supporting the policy, according to a Quinnipiac University National Poll.

The government is accepting most, but not all, of the Senate's over 40 proposed amendments to Bill C-45. NDP members supported the bill while those on the Conservative benches voted against it.

"One woman (said), 'What about me, what about me?'" Olivares said a few hours later. "I think, and this is my opinion, liberals are going to just try to hype up the emotions". "This is not doubling down, it is tripling down".

Still, Trump, a voracious watcher of cable news who is especially attuned to the power of images, appeared to acknowledge later Tuesday that the optics could be doing damage. Randy Weber, R-Texas. "It's not about the politics". Yet the classic rambling stem-winder delivered by Trump left members grasping for a clear sense of whether he supports both of the GOP immigration bills they plan to vote on later this week.

Immigration animated Trump's 2016 campaign and the issue remains relevant in Minnesota, where farm workers are a staple of the economy in the southern reaches of the state and there is a large Somali population in the Twin Cities.

Trump on Tuesday again inaccurately blamed opposition Democrats for the border dispute, even though his administration set the child separation policy. He said he wants Congress to provide him with a third option: to deport families as a unit. The UN Human Rights Council, as well as many other human rights organizations, have also condemned it. Ralph Reed, chairman of the Faith & Freedom coalition of evangelical voters, added to the drumbeat to end the child separation policy Tuesday, calling on Congress to pass legislation that would end the process as part of a broader immigration overhaul. The situation still came in for fierce criticism, but the policy introduced in April by Trump is far more hard line.

The Republican calls for a policy rethink follow the release of an audio recording appearing to capture the desperation and suffering of young migrant children separated from their mothers and fathers at the U.S. border.

Looking for news you can trust?

"We want to end the border crisis by finally giving us the legal authorities and the resources to detain and remove illegal immigrant families altogether", Trump said Tuesday, "and bring them back to their country". One Republican told CNN that the RNC expects to raise $3 million at the event.

Neo-conservative Bill Kristol, founder of "The Weekly Standard", tweeted that "Trump's statement that immigrants will "infest our Country" probably sounds better in the original German". They can't win on their awful policies, so they view them as potential voters! Richard Nixon was the last Republican to carry the state in a presidential race.
