  • Parents struggle to find kids in U.S. separation chaos

The policy has resulted in more than 2,300 children being separated from their parents.

"Please could you send me a phone number so that I can communicate with my daughter?" read the note, which was written in Spanish and seen by Reuters.

Ms Merida-Galicia, who is being held in California, is just one of many incarcerated immigrant mothers whose lawyers tell similar stories about chaotic situations in which the mothers do not know where their children have been taken or how to contact them.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement posted a notice saying it is looking into creating 15,000 beds for use in detaining immigrant families.

The U.S. Justice Department asked a federal judge Thursday to modify a consent decree to allow parents who crossed the border illegally with their children to remain together in residential facilities while immigration proceedings are pending.

The federal public defender's office for the region that covers El Paso to San Antonio said Thursday that federal prosecutors would be dismissing cases in which parents were charged with illegally entering the country and separated from their children.

"We were separated permanently". She said that she cried when the two were reunited and that she is never going to be away from him again. Rep. Peter Welch of Vermont said Friday that Trump's assertion was "bizarre" and that the border patrol processing center he visited in Texas in recent days was "nothing short of a prison".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Democrats and the news media exploited for political purposes a widely circulated photograph of a 2-year-old Honduran girl as her mother is searched near the U.S. -Mexico border.

"(He) wants Americans to believe that the hundreds of people we saw in this facility were a danger to them and to this country", the Himes said.

"Elect more Republicans in November and we will pass the finest, fairest and most comprehensive Immigration Bills anywhere in the world", Trump said on Twitter.

Trump tweeted Friday morning that "Republicans should stop wasting their time on immigration" until after the midterm elections, when more members of the GOP may be elected. "I want to solve this problem as quickly as possible". "We can pass great legislation after the Red Wave!" he said.

All 435 House seats and a third of the 100-member Senate will be up for grabs in November.

She called on Democrats to help Trump fix the immigration system - after Trump said Republicans should wait until after November's congressional elections. Trump himself traveled to Capitol Hill Tuesday to make the case that Congress should pass either of two bills that have been under consideration, and on Wednesday postponed the annual Congressional Picnic that had been scheduled for Thursday at the White House so that lawmakers could work to pass them.

Asked why Republicans don't stop wasting their time after Trump's tweet, McHenry responded "that's a very good question".

Another retiring lawmaker, Republican Congressman Mark Sanford of SC, a frequent Trump critic who recently lost his primary election, said Trump's reversal sends "a horrifically chilling signal" that "makes immigration reform that much more unlikely".

The department acted a day after President Donald Trump signed an executive order to keep immigrant families together. Nielsen acknowledged the Trump administration implemented a new policy of separating children and re-classifying them as "unaccompanied" when federal agents refer the parents for criminal prosecution.

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

Since about April, feds say, roughly 27,000 people have been detained while trying to illegally cross the southern US border in a family group. So do US citizens and other people who are here legally. It's not clear exactly how many now in the homes were separated from their parents during a recent crackdown on illegal crossings of the U.S. -Mexico border.

There were also signs that the administration was dialing back, at least for now, its "zero tolerance" policy of prosecuting all adults caught crossing into the USA illegally.
